We are coming into town Monday, and will see everyone at the Casa and at the aquarium, etc.

I'm afraid that I will now be in Lisbon next week representing a Portuguese bank rather than enjoying PB. Have fun for me.

I'm all packed and ready to leave for the airport very shortly. I will have my laptop, so with a bit of luck I'll post pictures to the forum when I can.

I am driving up from LA on Monday morning for a few days of relaxing in Big Sur, then rolling into Casa Munras on Thursday - Sunday with my wife Melinda.  We will have our DB9 and I am looking forward to meeting more AM owners / fans.

Arriving Tuesday evening.

1- Have not booked a hire car yet - hoping to pick up something sporty at Monterey Peninsula airport - Is that a good or bad plan?

2 - Anyone have a plan for Wednesday?

See you there. Geoff

I am at Ventana Inn as well.  Arrive today (Monday) after 4pm or so.  Lets definitely try and say hello - will you have an Aston or are you flying in from somewhere?

If you see me, my name is Rio and I am caucasian - 31 years old, 6 feet tall with head mostly shaved.  would give you my cell number but there is no reception - so you can ask for me at the Ventana front desk if you'd like.

Here is a pic of me from the last time I was in Big Sur with my DB9 in December 06 and some others I took in the Ventana parking lot of my car and the beautiful sign.

I would book Geoff.  Monterey is very busy that week.  Even SFO runs out of rental cars somtimes.

Hope to see you there.

We have reservations for the Aquarium dinner Friday evening. But we need to confirm time and dress.

Is it still scheduled for 6:00 PM?

Is the dress "jacket & tie"?

Thanks.

Dinner is at 7:00, dress is coat and tie. Parallel attire for ladies. at least that's what it says in the AM quarterly.
Heading up Wednesday morning, who is going to Carmel to see the Pebble Beach tour?

Hate to say this, but (when I arrived yesterday) I got the last Shelby convertible in either San Francisco, San Jose, or Monterey and it was a NIGHTMARE to get it from Hertz even though I booked it 3 weeks ago when I changed my mind about bringing my Aston from Texas.

They had to give me another car in San Jose and then have me drive it down to Monterey to pick up the Mustang...a LOT of work.

If you want something sporty, you need to book it NOW !!!!!!!!  They are really sold out except for Corvettes in San Jose.

You have good taste...LOL !!!!!!!!  ;D
