Spontaneous Day trip to PiSMO BEACH! PiZZa/SeaFood/FuN in The Sun!!

Hi Everyone! Our friend Andrew has suggested an exciting day trip to Pismo Beach!

We are SO FORTUNATE to be living in one of the most BEAUTIFUL and scenic states in the country...we might as well throw in a spontaneous day trip on the board once in a while! Especially when the location is so close--- Google states that Bakersfield to Pismo Beach is less than two and half hours away...

So let's get together and soak up the sun and take in that fresh beachy air for the day. This is a very economical trip as well since it's just for a day, we're saving the bucks there--- and of course all of the great advantages that come with carpooling.

Lets brainstorm some ideas and post them in the comment section below...!

Itinerary:
9:00AM - 
Get together, park our cars (exact meeting location will be emailed to the members who are attending)...carpool out ~ and hit the road! It would be a good idea to be gassed up the night before and to split the costs afterwards as gassing up could easily take extra time.

11:30AM - At about this time we'll be on the highway arriving in the beautiful city of Pismo Beach! We'll roll our windows down, and smell that fresh coastal air with the wind in our hair! Mmm! haha =) From there our ideas are open and we are coordinating in the comment section.

Please feel free to toss ideas around whether you are interested in going or would just like to give helpful suggestions to the group. Either way we would love to hear from you! =)


Carpool #1:
Seat #1: Andrew (Driver)
Seat #2: Sandee
Seat #3: Janice
Seat #4: Jennifer
Seat #5: Andrew's +1!

Carpool #2: (Open) 
Seat #1:  (Drivers name here)
Seat #2: (Your name here!)
Seat #3: (Your name here!)
Seat #4: (Your name here!)


Thanks Andrew for the awesome meetup suggestion!!

    What a great day we had at Pismo Beach!! The weather was perfect and the company awesome. It was wonderful to meet Janice, Cloud & Karan. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and dinner both on patios, walking on the pier and getting our toes wet in the ocean. I had a spectacular day and thanks so much to Andrew for driving. Hope to see everyone again very soon!

    I will be heading to Oregon for a week so have to miss this. There are over 20 wineries within Pismo with most in the Edna or Arroyo Grande area. To eat I recommend the Cracked Crab or Splash.

  • Sandee

    Andrew, if its just you and I from Bakersfield, a Southwest location for pickup would be easier for me. I am near Gosford and Harris Road.

    August 2

    • Andrew B.

      That works for me. Where did you have in mind?

      August 3

  • Shawn S.

    Andrew, the group is still welcome to meet & park at my house if you would like...

      1 · August 1

  • Shawn S.

    So sad to change my RSVP to no, but good news is the reason I am backing out is I got invited to go spend the weekend at the beach!!!

    August 1

  • Andrew B.

    The countdown is on. T - 10 days...

    • Sandra

      Hi Andrew! Hey is all of the seating figured out? I was going to send an email to everyone in the group mentioning the day trip. I was wondering if Janice is going to Bakersfield and then riding with you? Just trying to keep everyone updated, in case anyone pops up last minute, thanks =)

      July 30

    • Andrew B.

      Yep seating is unless someone who didn't rsvp shows.

      July 30

  • Janice D.

    Not soon enough...I am so ready for the beach!!

    1 · July 30

  • Andrew B.

    I sent out launch pad info to everyone who RSVP'd. We still have room for anyone who wants to go. This is going to be a fun trip.

    3 · July 21

  • Andrew B.

    Perfect! Everything is in walking distance then. There is a wine room on the main drag very close to the bars and sand. My Google-Fu has been weak lately, so I can not find a forecast for August, but it the weather follows the trend for the summer, it should be mid-seventies and sunny. Fingers crossed. We have four going so far, so it looks like a single vehicle will work. I can drive, unless someone else is adamant they drive. Of course you are welcome to take your own vehicle if you desire.

    2 · July 18

    • Sandra [back up a.

      Oh my gosh I just saw Janice is going! awesome... she's from Visalia ---- ok now that there is this much interest I'll post muti wide... let'n everyone know Bakersfield is throwin' it down for the summer time getaways!!!! See if they want to follow along =)

      July 18

    • Andrew B.

      Yep. We even have the logistics worked out

      2 · July 18

  • Sandee

    wine tasting, beer tasting... I have no preference, just wanna get the heck outta Dodge!

    2 · July 14

  • Andrew B.

    Quick weekly update. Shawn has decided to join the trip. Welcome to the group Shawn! Since it is getting close, I'm going to go ahead and start making a plan. Sandee had expressed interest in wine tasting. There are a couple wine rooms in town and wineries just outside of town. I think the wine room in town would be better, but I've never been wine tasting or to a wine room, so I could be wrong. Any body with experience want to weigh in?

    July 14

    • Shawn S.

      Thanks for the welcome! I am not really a wine drinker, but open to trying... I'm more of a craft beer taster..there are several breweries along that area as well... Overall, I'm game for whatever!!!!

      July 14

  • Andrew B.

    Quick Update. There have been three RSVP's including me. I proposed a couple things earlier, and am in a little bit of a holding pattern for now. If the trip stays the three of us we can go in one vehicle and play things by ear. If we get more interest as the date approaches, then we can flesh out an itinerary.

    1 · July 7

  • Sandee

    Anything new happening with the Pismo trip? There were a few hiccups so just checking this trip is still a go. I am still interested, Andrew. Please advise, have not seen you in awhile...

    July 7

    • Andrew B.

      It's been a hectic couple weeks for me. So far only three people have shown interest. If we don't get more interest, I suggest the three of us car pool and play it by ear.

      July 7

  • Andrew B.

    This is what I'm thinking. Fishing is out. I get the impression Arthur and I would be the only ones fishing. I kind of want to maintain everything in walking distance of parking, so I have done a little searching and there is a wine room called Tastes of the Valleys on Pierce St. if the wine tasting is what everyone wants to do. That also means we're close enough to the beach and other things for non-drinkers to have things to do other than watch everyone drink. Arthur has volunteered to drive, and I can drive also. When we get a little closer I will send out some meet up points and we can decide on a route.

    2 · June 26

  • Sandee

    I checked the Pismo calendar of events there's not really any festivals or events going on that date I'm sure we'll find that fun things to do. anyone else with ideas?

    June 26

  • Sandee

    there are several nice wineries about 10 minutes outside of Pismo and Edna Valley, if we wanted to do wine tasting. Harry's Bar in Pismo is a nice place to get a cool beer and play pool. brads is a pretty good restaurant that has indoor or patio dining. I do not fish but I would be happy to watch the fisherman and read a book on the beach.

    1 · June 25

  • Andrew B.

    Also if you can drive, let me know so we can make sure everybody has a ride.

    1 · June 25

  • Andrew B.

    Ok, I changed the meet time to 9am. 7am is way too early for me. I will email out a prospective meeting place soon. I'm open to suggestions for an itinerary for the day. Where do people want to eat? Who wants to spend the day sitting on the beach? Fish? Any surfers in our group?

    1 · June 25

  • Sandee

    Andrew your military background is showing... 7 a.m.!!! looking forward to the trip I am unable to drive however so I'll need to be in someone's vehicle. thanks for getting it going again Andrew.
