*** 2020 West Coast Cruise Cancelled ***
The COVID pandemic doesn't seem to be slowing down enough for the Governor to reopen the state and as the amount of time draws closer to our scheduled date there just isn't enough time to get all of the happenings coordinated.
That being said if anyone wants to go that weekend, and some of you have expressed an interest in gathering still, you're welcome to do so. If you no longer want to go please contact the hotel directly and cancel your reservations before you get charged.
The patio is still open for you to gather and talk too loud making the security guard tell you to bring the level down a notch. However, per their website some of the hotel's features may not be available and masks must be worn at all times in the common areas of the hotel.
We will come back in 2021 and make up for lost time and driving.

Jim, will you please let Bill Nash know what's going on?
Are any of you other reprobates still giving some serious consideration of cruzin on your own to SLO? I spoke with the Mgr. at the Quality Inn and she says the only real "changes" are the required masks, keeping the 6' social distance, and you cannot eat breakfast inside. She also confirmed they will honor FREE cancellation until Friday, Sept. 18th @ 6:00 PM.
Personally, I'm still looking at driving to Carmel-By-The-Sea on Thursday (09/17), leaving there Friday morning no later than 9AM and driving down (that's South) Hwy 101 like many of us did last year. This time, however, I'd stop along the way a few times to "smell the roses" and see the sights, lunch at Gorda or Ragged Point, and stay in Morro Bay. I'd hope to pull into SLO the next morning, Saturday the 19th.
ALL OF THIS, though, depends on the weather. I'm not about to beat up my body driving a Clown Car 700 miles over 5 days.... if half the trip is fogged-in and the return half is in 106 degrees. Been there, done that....ain't doin' it again!
If anyone is interested in joining me on any leg of this trip....let me know.
