It's still two months away, but I wanted to let people know that I *should* (unless work cancels the trip) be in San Diego from Nov 7th to the 12th. It's a work trip and I doubt I'll have a rental car. I'll be a few blocks from the San Diego Convention Center, though.

I checked and Los Angeles is only 2 hours away. Course, I have no clue about traffic, so that might mean it's a 4 hour trip one way. :) But, my evenings should be fairly free, so if anyone would like to get together while I'm there, let me know.

Mark,

As you probably know by now, there is a wealth of Aikido in the SD area. Feel free to join us in Vista. We are about 45 minutes away including the traffic. North on I-5, East on Hwy 78, Melrose off ramp to the North. We are a AAA dojo and classes start at 6:45pm, M-F. If you need more info, feel free to PM me.

This is a work trip. I won't have a vehicle.

I'll be staying in the Gaslamp District.

Should be there around 2PM on Nov 7th. So, Friday late afternoon to evening has a good chance of being free.

Saturday (8th) - Late afternoon to evening has another good chance at being free. Depending on how smoothly things go, I might even get done before Noon. :)

Sunday(9th) - Definitely not until at least 5:30PM. After that, I should be free.

Monday(10th) - Definitely not until at least 5:30PM. After that, I should be free. Possible early morning could be free - 6-10AM.

Tuesday(11th) - The only free time would be early morning 6-10AM. After that, it's a looong day for me.

Wednesday, I leave in the morning.
