A few of us have discussed this in the chat room. the decision came out for the most central location of the Santa Nella exit on I-5. this puts us right where the wildlife refuges of the central valley are located. I will send off an email to roman Loranc and see if I can talk him into coming and meeting some of his fans. ;ets try for the weekend starting the 11th of Feb. spome can arrive that night, or they can make it the next day in the morning. let us know here if you can attend.
See further up in this thread the link to the Best western in Santa Nella.
