Oct. 2009 California SMB Forum Greet and Meet trip report

I finally got part of the October (California) greet/meet trip report done. For ease I posted to my web site. I still have to post the group runs that were made (about 5 more parts) and will do so soon. I plan to add a watered down version at the original post also. It was a great trip and I enjoyed meeting all who showed up. Nice to see all the different types of Sportsmobile vehicles as well.

Great writeup. Sounds like a good get together and neat to see other members with their rigs. They were all so clean. Here in Colorado I think they would have all been dirty, I have to clean mine all the time.

Dave,

Good Job! Thank you. Loved the pictures, too. I liked how I could enlarge them. Had a great time at the meet up. Fun to see old friends (meaning previously met, not aged) and new friends.

Your Auto Ramblings sure helped when I was buying my SMB.

And the prize for the most cheerful attitude in the morning, with below freezing weather and the heater only working in daylight, goes to Cindy of the calclimber group. :-)
