Airpacker I think you just picked a bad week when lots of them are bussy. That sucks because they are always GREAT hosts.

It depends on what you like to do. Send a list of things you like and I will try to come up with a list. Without knowing where to start it is hard to make suggestions. There is a new Church downtown LA that is the biggest west of the Mississippi. It has huge tapestries made by John Nava and is worth seeing. The Getty Museum is awesome, Magic Mountain has great roller coasters, Beverly Hills is nice, marvel at the endless traffic jams, you name it we can find it for you.

We already have one BatBoat ride scheduled, but you coujld bring tons of money and we could go out every day.

AirPacker .. we're not being rude or anything ... it's just that your dates are so far out ... out here, it's hard to plan our casual boating that far ahead.

I think I'll have my boat in the water on the weekend of the 20th and should have room for one more to make a lunch run. If my boat is full, I'm sure I can get someone to make room for you Right guys ???

Since you'll be in Anehiem, you can go to the Big Ed and watch the 1st Place Angels play

For sure, go to Disneyland

Keep us posted

Tom,I am really looking forward to my first ride in a "Bat Boat".as for money,sure,I'll bring lots,I hear CA is a pretty expensive place
As for the question of what do I like to do,dam near anything that can raise pulse or blood pressure I rented a rag top for the week because someone told me thet driving the coast highway is a must do.Ya ,we are gonna do the disney thing somewhere along the line.
Cig1,lunch run?sounds good to me,I'll buy.
Dates so far out there?you left coasters are laid back aren't you Hell,I know dam near every boating date I can squeeze in in a summer months in advance as far as my schedule,outside the 27th,28 and 29th,anything is pretty much open.

Thanks for the offers and please believe me when I say that I never thought that anyone was being rude,a little laid back maybe but not rude

Airpacker,
When are you arriving? I did a test run yesterday and am ready as soon as we can go. I don't work so any time is great.

G,
About that lunch run. Where are you running from? Maybe we could join you and Airpacker could ride two boats the same day. We could even go Saturday to the Thuderboat Regatta on Saturday and go out into the ocean from there. I could trailer up a reasonable distance like Dana Point or ?

Default Bat Boats at San Diego

If you guys could pull it off, you would really be a hit if you could run around the course to show off those great boats.
Here is a shot I took at St Cloud~
