Anyone Up For A Bay Area Gathering?

Wed Jul 11, 2001 10:47 pm

I have my 6 day break from work coming up (I get 6 days off every 8 weeks) starting at the end of next week. Anyone want to get together for a photo shoot, preferably at SJC? I can drive up via a stop in Fresno. Maybe if I can get together with someone, we all can caravan to SFO.

I figured I have a few "Bay Area" buddies here, namely Superfly, Rotate777, and FlyGGA.

Perhaps RealHigh can show up....if she dares!  Big grin

 Laugh out loud  Laugh out loud  Laugh out loud  Laugh out loud  Laugh out loud  Laugh out loud

I am all up for it!  Big thumbs up

Let's not forget:
DeltaSFO, ILUV767, Imkeww, Hugo, El Premier, Ray Chuang, Aviglator, MichaelSFO, IloveA340, OH-LGW, D L X and a few others I can't think of right now.

RealHigh has flaked on the gatherings three times!  Angry
Maybe because I was there.  Sad

When you are up, I can maybe show you some cool record stores and even vintage stereo shops. The Sound Well in Berkeley is awsome!  Big thumbs up

Wish I could be there; it'd be too cool to throw out a political question and watch the fur fly!

But seriously, I don't know whether the spotting, the food (I'll take Chinese, thanks) or the old stereos and records, sounds most appealing.

Take pictures (clothes on, only, if you please).

I don't think politics will be brought up.
I may take Matt D to the Cannabis (pot) Buyers Club or the Socialist Democratic Action headquarters!  Laugh out loud  Laugh out loud  Laugh out loud

Just Kidding! Big grin

Matt,

When are you thinking of doing this? Because I am thinking about doing a short milieage run and heading out to SJC on Aug 11-12 to take advantage of United's double miles offer. I was just going to hang at the airport pretty much all day. If you guys are going to be there at that time then even better, I'll hang with you guys. Post some days/dates when you get the chance.

Depending on the time and day I might be abe to show up. I'd be up for a meet at SFO simply because it is much closer to my house, but it would most likely be worth the drive down to SJC if that is where every one else wants to go.

OH-LGA, OH-LGA Superfly!  Smile But I'll forgive you... this time  Smile

I'd love to, but I'm half a world away in Europe (Finland) currently... I won't be back until July 26th late at night... but at least I get to do some flying eh?  Smile BASA will supposedly be hosting another gathering sometime in the near future, but you'll have to ask our trusty president about that...

Moi from Finland,

My six day break runs from Friday, July 20-Wednesday July 25.

I was thinking about meeting on Sunday, the 22'nd.

Will that work for anyone?

No, sorry. I'll be in New York at that time. Maybe the next gathering then.

Here are my proposals:

Option A:
Sunday, July 22nd:

SJC 7AM-top level of parking garage overlooking WN/AA terminal...beautiful AM shots available. Then at 9AM or so when the sun gets too high to shoot pix from there, we all go and raise hell at a local restaraunt for breakfast.

Option B:
Sunday, July 22nd
SJC 2PM at corner of Airport Dr and Coleman Ave at the CSU parking lot-at the little picnic table in the grassy area. We all meet, then go raise hell for lunch at a local restaraunt, then return to get some afternoon pix.

Let's just hope that the sun is out that day!  Smile

Well, I'm "up" for a meeting at SJC, but I think the chances of me getting there at 7AM are roughly equal to that of twin lightning bolts striking down Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms simultaneously.

Oh wait, I'm not supposed to bring up matters of politics...

I assume option A was just a joke right? Big grin
I am usually just getting in from partying out at that time.

Option B is way better. I am all up for grabbing a bite to eat as long as you promise not to start a fight with the waitress! Big grin  Laugh out loud  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
Just kidding.

You mean to tell me that you don't want to see my "handiwork" with the (usually incompetent) waitresses first hand?

If you were to see that while ypu and I were dining together, that would give you 6 months worth of posting material! Big grin

Dude will you stop saying I am RealHigh!
That is not me for the last time. A few other forum members have met Ms. High BTW. FYI, me and RealHigh hung out a few times and there was a little confusion about our friendship. In otherwords, I have a girlfriend already! This goes back way before you even started coming to this web-site!

Can some one give me directions to where we are meeting once I exit 880. I tried to figure out where the meeting is from mapquest, but failed miserably. From the map I looked on it looks like coleman ave intersects 880, but I have only been to SJC a few times and don't know my way around down there all that well.

So fill us all in on the details of the gathereing.
Who all is attending so far?
I'll be coming in on Amtrack which isn't too far from the airport. I couldn't find this park/intersection on any map either.

I'll try to be there. It depends on if I can spend time away from my soon to be girl friend. She is comming in from BOS the night before, and we havnt seen each other in two weeks! If im not with her, I'll be there.

There seems to be some confusion with where the meeting is to take place. Maybe I'm just having a hard time describing the location. But for all of you that are familiar with SJC, it is the spot where this picture was taken.

As far as I can tell, it is scheduled for this Sunday at 2PM.

OK...well, hopefully a few people will show up for this.

So, the meeting time is 2PM at the corner of Airport BLVD and Coleman Ave, correct?

I'll probably stop by there, but I need to head home by about 5-5:30.

Looks like the chances of me showing up are small now, some family came to the area from ou of town and I will probably be with them all day.

Sorry to do an about-face, but I don't think I'll be able to come.

I just received an e-mail from my flute teacher informing me that she has to sub for someone at a performance tomorrow evening and therefore must see me at 3PM, instead of 6PM tomorrow. I will reply to the e-mail and try to reschedule for another day, but I doubt I'll be able to do that.
