Default Would you attend a West Coast fest in the SFBA?

I just thought I'd post a poll to see interest in a Fest in SFBA. There's a sentiment that a Fest there would be poorly attended, and this might help out in determining whether or not that's true. Thanks!

Edit: I posted another poll to get data on attendance for the last Fest in Boston. Please answer it too for comparison purposes. TDIFest 2004 attendance poll.

It's a bit of a haul, but I have family about halfway so I would definitely make the trip.

I'm sure we could get quite a caravan going from the BC/WA/OR contingent.

Sound like a good time. And the SFBA is a fun visit anyway....

I'm itching for the road trip already!
The wife and I love the SFBA. She lived there for a while after college.

Its a long haul but I'd plan a vacation around it (2 or 3 weeks). This would be my first trip to the SFBA.

Road trip! Road Trip!

There were a number of people from the Atlantic coast that made the trip to SLC, the furthest westward yet, in 2001. How may from the Pacific coast made that reverse "Donner party" trek to Utah?
I'll arrange my vacation time around the 6th edition where-ever it is held. I'm five for five.

I'd come if I can convince my wife a vacation drive across the country is something she'd enjoy.

We've been to San Fran before so it wouldn't be our first time there.

here's M2C

put the proposal together and the we can vote on accepting it as the location.

numbers... do you think you can draw 60-120 cars from the West? make the proposal.

There are lots of people who can't take the extra time unless its a short drive away... no reason why the West can't have a successful GTG - looks like you've got 3-4 great people from the east who are committed to coming.

Question is,,, where were all the west coast people in Boston, Toronto, or Michigan?

Will i be headed there? Dunno - Labor day falls the weekend after classes start and for staff and faculty its a tough time to get away...

I know my wife will say no and if your wife says no, although I am not as pretty as she is, I would go with you. Then our wives could fly to SF and we could meet them at the airport.

I was thinking the Passat would be a nice comfortable ride...and I should have a Navi installed by then...

and I have mapped out the route already...3 days averaging 75-80 mph...

VF - Co-pilot wanted?

Other option is to make this a 7-10 day (or more) vacation as mentioned by others above. We've both been to the SFBA and wouldn't mind a vacation there again.
