Default West Coast - USA meet @ Napa

Summer is coming and its that time of the year when wine country - Napa is at its blossoming best. Its time we Team-bhp members meet up in the west coast of USA and make it a memorable trip.

So here is a big shout out to all the members in West coast of USA, lets make a wonderful, epic drive to wonderful wine country in our rides and have some fun.

Tentative dates are in the month of June -15th,22nd or 29th.

We plan to meet in Napa and then drive to Lake Berryessa via Lake Hennessey which is approx 50 min drive. We can figure out detailed plan later once we have an approx count of members coming.

Obviously it would be great if your friends come along. The more the merrier. I look forward to my first Team-Bhp meet and am excited to explore new vistas.

Please mention how many people and how many vehicles will be coming. A good idea would be to bring some water and snacks along for the road.

Great. Why don't you add a poll to the thread for date. Then we can decide based on maximum attendance .

Argh. I don't want to choose just one date. The team-bhp poll won't work I guess. We need multiple choice poll .

I created this Google form, let's see if this works for us - https://docs.google.com/forms/d/13fs...Hrg9Y/viewform

Sorry guys,Have been busy with work and family.

We should get together sometime in Bay Area if Napa doesn't work. May be go to[FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif] Mt Hamilton near san jose OR page mill road in Palo Alto OR Mt Diablo near Walnut Creek.

Just need to figure out how many are willing to come. Obviously friends and family would be most welcome.

I will be in Bay Area starting June 17th, so we can figure something out. If June doesn't work, we can do a July meet up. Its pretty flexible from my end.

Atleast we have a destination finalized. So lets do Mt. Diablo. Just need to finalize date. Let me know what works for you guys after July 14th. We can go there on Friday after work - say around 5 pm-6pm if weekends doesn't work out.

Guys, Me and Gautham are meeting next week some day. It will just be a small meet. Idea is to get to know each other, chill and have fun. If time permits, do a short drive nearby with some curves.

Let me know if you guys would like to join. It will be on a weekday - after 6-7 pm.

It would be good to have this meet and then we can decide a day to go to Mt. Diablo/Napa or some other place.

I am not sure! Haven't talked to Gautham about place. You can throw in some ideas. I am new there so not very familiar.

I am in San Jose too. I didn't knew you were in Bay Area. Sorry didn't quote you.

I think anywhere in this 4 places should be good.

We can meet near SJ Country Club and from there go to a small 4-5 mile drive on 130 (Mt. Hamilton Road). May be go towards first couple of pull outs and come back.

We can also grab something to eat if all are up for it, say In and Out or something. It just depends what every one wants to do. Or meet at a Jamba Juice or Starbucks or something.
