    This year I'm doing a budget run to Monterey (sans the wife) and I'm looking for some partners in crime. I'm talking about sharing a car and room (at least 30 minutes away from the action) with 1-3 other people. In other words: "Have sleeping bag, will travel." Anybody out there dying to go but on a tight budget let me know now!

    Also, if anyone from SoCal is interested, we can carpool on the way up.

    I'm planning to fly in from Chicago with just a change of clothes, camera and a credit card. The original plan was to ship the car out and do the whole bit, but that just got too complicated.

    I'm up for sharing; let me know about times, dates and places.

    Texas!
    All, I am possession of what is the most valuable prize of all. Namely, I have a room reserved at the Embassy Suites just outside of Monterey. Because it comes with some cooking facilities and what not, it should make a great crash pad.

    We can discuss further as this thing heats up, but my only proviso is dibbs on a bed. I gave up sharing beds a long time ago when I came home from a trip only to find one of my good-time buddies getting a massage in my bed... with olive oil.

    Had to burn those sheets...

    Good story Dr. Tax, reminds of how we used to rate sailboats.
    "Well,...it sleeps six but fu__s twelve!"

    There goes the PG rating on this thread...

    How 'bout if I sleep in the Art Car, and just charge breakfast to the room! LOL!

    Randy, Norm: There are no set plans yet except that I'll be arriving on Thursday the 12th and probably departing on the following Monday. I'm not decided on whether I'll drive up or just fly and rent a car there.

    Dale, I've no problem with crashing on the floor.

    Wayne, sounds good, I'll make some plans and let you know.

    I'm also good to crash on the floor, but usually someone will just lean me in a corner.

    Norm, my refund's in the mail,512TR

    I'd have no problems crashing on a floor somewhere. I'd just have to work out a ride / flight out that way or a flight / ride out that way and meet up with you guys.

    and fyi - non-smoker / non-snorer here. =)

    Wayne: To borrow a line from one of Hunter Thompson's characters, "As your lawyer, i highly recommend..." that you:

    book a suite at the Lodge at Pebble Beach, using fictitious journalist's credentials;claim you are covering the event for some obscure, and completely unverifiable publication.
    put everything on the room tab, make insane demands on the hotel staff, and generally act strange; it will only make it more believable that you are who you claim to be;
    do a Gonzo journalism piece, to be published in one of the new, trendy magazines devoted to male vanity;
    travel everywhere with an entourage, consisting of a cameraman, two hookers and a guy with a clipboard;
    read "Fear and Loathing In LV" for other good ideas.
    (PS Have somebody take you to dinner at The Post Ranch Inn. Do not use my name).

    Just a reminder...The week long FCA 2004 event starts the Monday after the Sunday Pebble Beach Concours. It will be the largest Ferrari meet to come in a long time.

    I am staying at the Beach Dunes Inn. 5 minutes from Concorso Italiano, next to Black Horse Golf Course. Clean and tidy, but do not plan on impressing your friends with the architecture of your hotel. I do see prices creep up towards and above the $200 later in the year, so reserve now.
    My room will have wife and two kids, but it would be neat to see other F cars in the parking lot.
