    Default Ruckus

    I may be a bit early here - or I may be asking what is obvious to everyone else - but when should I get going buying a ticket from SF to LA? And what arrival/departure time will serve me best?

    Last year, we started gathering At Pearl Paradise starting around noon to one pm on Friday and hung out at the local eatery until hotel or rather, mansion, time at around four pm.

    Jeremy mentioned a boat. The claustrophobe in me is not liking the idea of staying on one, although I wouldn't mind a short cruise.

    Really? A boat? Wow! Hey, Josh emocean works -as in lifetime of devotion, I second that! Only I thought it was landlocked Caitlin who brought up the boat?

    Does anyone ever Limo-pool from the airport? Any interest?

    Lisa, I'll certainly need to get from the airport.

    I just stepped off the plane from Japan.

    Does anyone of the regulars want to take a hand in planning as well this year? I am currently planning a celebration of another kind with Hisano in Japan for the end of May

    Just stepped off the plane from Japan - did you do a Celebrity Misdirection and already tie the knot? a fan club (wink) wants to know...

    Anyway, there's a ruckus on the books in June, also? or has the mystery calendar morphed? Or is that the Portland mini-ruckus? Have we all spun around too many times and become dis-oriented gomorrhites?

    May I suggest the Marina Del Rey Hotel? http://www.marinadelreyhotel.com/meetings.php

    Free parking, which is rare in MDR, and although it is outdated, being next to the water has its perks!

    Let me know what you think. Octavia has stayed here!

    It doesn't look like a bad place. Let's see how the next few weeks go on my end as well. We may be able to do something more like last year too. I just have a lot of wedding planning on my plate at the moment ... at the end of May
