I'll be in San Francisco all next week. I'll be working during the day, but would enjoy meeting folks for dinner. I'm staying downtown at the Hotel Triton on Grant Avenue.
What day should I be sick?
Friday would be best. I've reserved that day for myself. Thursday I have to drive to Parkfield and back, all for the sake of 5 minutes of video.

Since we're posting our trips, I'm going to be in the Bay area (Travis AFB) the last week of Feb or so (haven't set the trip up fully just yet). My plan is to shoot my brains out on the golden gate bridge. Wait that sounds bad. I'm gonna take a lot of pictures. Probably of more than the bridge. Hey so if anyone wants to show me around the non-touristy but super sweet pic areas of SF or wherever, let me know.
Hey keep yur big 'ole starlifter at home
I'll be out of town that week otherwise, I'd make the trip to Fairfield.
Take a look at this first.
I have no idea how hard it would be to organize a shoot at Bosque del Apache but I would love to go there next year. Is there anyone else interested in a West Coast Bird Meetup at Bosque this fall/winter?
Don't know this place. Please tell us more.
Bosque is reportadly one of the top bird photography places in the US. I've never been there so I can't say, but from looking at the images from the place from Arthur Morris and others it looks awesome.

It's not Tour de France, but it must be a very picturesque event anyway:-)
This Saturday Feb 25 it's coming to Thousand Oaks, next to Amgen, ETA 1 pm. There also gonna be festival, etc.
I'm thinking of taking a few shots on this account:-)
Anybody wanna get together?
Nik, I'd love to go, but I have my daughter's track meet all day saturday. Great idea, though!
I'm thinking of going to shoot me some poppies this coming weekend, supposedly Sat April 22d. There was plenty of water recently, and all this week it's gonna be sunny, so I hope to catch them in a peak of blooming.
Along the way I also think of visiting to Red Rock Canyon State Park.
Anybody wants in? Ideas are welcome, too!:):
Angelo was kind enough to inform me (http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=627) that this year's view maybe far from spectacular. However, I'm still thinking of going for a photohike (need gear testing fro May anyways:-), and the state parks are not that fragile... So thus far I'm still going..:-)
I was just out there two weeks ago, and there are very very few poppies. Don't let me stop you from coming out to have an outing, but I have to agree with the warning...very sparse this year for some reason. Still not a bad excuse to go shooting. I might be able to come and hang out for a while at the reserve. Let me know what time you expect to be out there.
