I think Central CA is a state of mind too. Its those people who don't see themselves as part of Northern CA or Southern CA. :R I'm not far enough north to be Northern CA, but I don't feel like Santa Barbara county is totally part of So Cal either. I would say its true of San Luis Obispo county & Kern county (Bakersfield) as well.
So far out of 3 gatherings we have gone to, 2 were in Jefferson State according to the website map. I just wish it wasn't such a long drive especially with the 55 mph trailer speed limit. :?
I agree with you Martha we are not Norhern or Southern Ca. Maybe we need a Central Coast Tear Jerkers and then we won't have to travel as far to gatherings. :)
How about you guys in the middle.... join both and go to either.... I would! oh yeah, I did and I will!!!!
