If there is, it is the best kept secret since the Stealth Fighter. In case there's not, I am working with other community members on the prospect of putting an event together for possible departure on Wednesday, August 17th, with an overnight in San Luis Obispo or Pismo Beach, followed by the final push to Monterey, for arrival Thursday night. Would like to gauge interest among those who peruse this board. I will be contacting the Headys today to see if they are aware of any unofficial southern legs in the works and will share this info when I receive it.
