Just wanted to introduce myself to this great forum.
Long time lurker, first time poster. (I've been lurking on this forum since June 2009, finally decided to sign up a few days ago)
Lately I tend to drive a lot, because my interests are spread all across the Central Coast. I'm local to Monterey, CA, but I often travel as far north as the Bay Area. (mostly Freemont, CA and the San Jose/Silicon Valley area) -
and as far south as San Luis Obispo, CA (with the occasional trip to Simi Valley/Thousand Oaks)
I would love to meet fellow enthusiasts that are local to any of these areas to learn new tricks of the trade, or just hang out for a beer/In-n-Out or something.
I have to say that I'm still fairly new to the hobby (/survival countermeasures), having relied on being a good spotter and reading traffic patterns for over a decade. I've learned though that enforcement has been stepped up considerably and now countermeasures are needed.
