Let's get this done! We must have a dozen cubes and associates within a few hours drive. Where's the bet place for meet summertime.

Roll Call!
------------
jakerome- I'm obligated!
Isa.Risa- Flying all the way in from Okinawa just for the occasion
San Diego Shooter- Signs point to yes
babyruthinmd- Possibly
pony.rojo- thinking about it
Edson_Matthews- checking flights
ponzu- maybe if it's in Laguna?
william-- I would hope so!
Other area cubes... I'll ping 'em
----------------------

OK. Let's get this set.


Sunday, meet at 2 PM at the MJT, mjt.org/vistinfo/hours.html
At 4 PM, we'll regather at at the southmost Venice Paddle Tennis courts. Parking. Will. Suck. maps.google.com/?ll=33.984842,-118.471938&spn=0.00169...

I might go to Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook beforehand... ping me if interested.

I'm going to post this in a few other groups, with the rally times noted.

I am still hoping to swing through Cali towards the middle to end of summer! If I know in advance, I might be able to plan around a meet up. :)

It actually works better the other way around... let us know when you're in town, then we'll plan to meet. Anytime before mid August works for me.

Where? I dunno, the hills, the beach, downtown... Venice Beach is always a trip, although we've already done that. I just think it's crazy to be anywhere but the beach!

Nathan will likely come up from San Diego. Will have to ping Surf Daddy. If he's in, we'll do our best to make sure no one gets stuck with a 3 hour drive.

Venice is a shoot-and-run proposition. I understand that as a tourist you need to get your money's worth in terms of California wackiness, but why would you go to the same place twice?

Edson, what's your pain point?

Also, we're getting very close to the "Jake's making a unilateral decision" part of the process. Too many conditionals here to keep everything open. So, if you're in or near or will be in LA, let me know TODAY what your story is & where you want to go. Once we've got a time/place, I'll crosspost to some other Flickr friends.

ponzü says:

I'm still a big fat maybe. I don't have any objections to Sunday -- in part because Sundays are slightly less busy for me, and in part because I don't have high hopes for making this one.

Where you guys decide to meet might make a difference for my availability, but I have not heard anyone say Laguna Beach was in the running.

We have a vote for Laguna from an uncertain attendee. I dig Venice. Edson hasn't let us know his pain point. I still need to see the MJT, www.mjt.org . Venice is a trip, the marina is right there, and there's always bike or rollerblading options.

OK, I'm going to officially bail on this, I just can't get away for the weekend, not right now.

As a small measure of compensation, I will sign up for the current print exchange.

Hopefully that will keep the balance right.

So we'll meet Sunday. Before heading to Venice Beach, how about visits to....

1) Baldwin Hills Scenic Outlook


2) Museum of Jurassic Technology www.yelp.com/biz/the-museum-of-jurassic-technology-culver...

Could plan on a couple rally points throughout the day.

Say 10:30 at BHSO, Noon at MJT and 2 PM at Venice Market?

If it ends up being just the four of you and you exhaust the entertainment potential of Venice Beach, come visit me in the O.C., perhaps when Nathan is ready to head back south. We can do something stupid like Fashion Island, perhaps Risa would like that, or have dinner at one of the many seaside joints in Huntington or Newport Beach. Sure, it's more freeway driving, but if you carpool, you could talk about, like, stuff.

Sunday, meet at Noon at the MJT, mjt.org/vistinfo/hours.html

I might go to Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook beforehand... ping me if interested.

We'll play it by ear, but will consider rolling toward Laguna to meet Ponzu for dinner.
