Bev is meeting me here and we are driving there together if you'd like to join us. You only live about 20 minutes from me. If you are interested, we are leaving Newport Wednesday morning, and returning Sunday. Message me if you are interested... we have 2 more seats in the car!

And heh... if we could find them, the caves Dan describes are on the way... I think???

It's going to be fun!

When I saw this post in the stream, I thought you were driving from Newport, RI! Or maybe Newport, DE - a little closer... laughing laughing laughing

Jerry.... very funny! Newport as in Beach... like the next state over from California... and only about 6 hours away by car. Funny...it is closer than driving to Northern California... and well worth the drive, as it is a reunion for those of us that attended last year, and an opportunity to meet more CM friends. Can't wait!

Brenda, I lived in Redondo Beach (suburb of LA) for a few years in the mid-80's and also spent a lot of time there in 2003-04 when I was dating a gentleman who lived there, so California is a bit of a second home for me. And, although I've never been to Newport Beach, I'm sure it's as wonderful as some of the other places up and down the coast such as Laguna Beach, San Diego (and Oceanside), San Francisco (and Sausalito), and Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach (where I lived). A CM gathering anywhere on the California Coast would be fun! The best weather time out there I think starts in mid-late summer (as the beaches can be foggy through June - called June gloom) and goes through the fall into December (until the winter temps start hitting). So, perhaps a California person would want to step up to the plate and think about planning something?

I was blessed last fall, Janet invited me to fly into Newport Beach and drive to CM Phoenix with her. If I had more time for this mini vacation I would be visiting Janet again this time.

There is actually a very funny, true story about my first night there, I had my first ride on a car ferry, got wet up to my knees from the ocean and fell into the sand after I got wet all in my first evening visiting Janet......definitely on my list to go back! Hopefully in the fall.....

Hello Lea,

Have you been to Mitchell Caverns? They're just off I-40 between Barstow, CA and Needles CA. They're probably a 3 1/2 hour drive from you. They're quite magnificent but not many people know about them. Google it sometime, if you haven't been there I really recommend them and they're not that far from you. Great display of stallactites and stallagmites. I hope you can join everyone at the Phoenix event. Lina has a really great itinerary planned.

God Bless!

Dan

Hi Dan,

I haven't been to Mitchell Caverns, honestly haven't heard of it. Thank you so much for your recommendation/info. I will add that to my listbiggrin About the Phoenix meet up, I hope I can join everyone as well. But l have to give myself sometime to make a decision, as I have other plans already lined up for April. In any case, I wish you all a safe journey to those places. May God bless and protect you all.Praying

Take care,
Lea

Brenda... the blessings were mine, as we finally met after years of being friends on this site! You know you are welcome anytime!

Hi Tricia...

I am thinking of planning something... not sure when. I was going to do it in the spring to get those that attended the CM Phoenix event (and others) together again, but many, many thanks to Lina... we are meeting again in Arizona! I will plan it, but not making any date commitments yet. I'm not worried about June Gloom at all, as it normally burns off by noon. Even when it is cloudy, there are many fun things to do, and 95 percent of the time the weather is perfect.

Keep checking back... it may be in the fall. Summertime is just too busy with tourists... See you soon!
