SoCal Meetup!

I saw an old thread for this but nothing seemed to come of it. So my SoCal friends, let's meet up!

I know it's not warm, so the beach may be out of the question, but anyone want to try a snow day at Big Bear sometime around the beginning of the year? Say, the weekend of January 5?

Eventually it'd be cool to get a weekly/monthly thing going but for now let's start with that

I'm interested!!!!!! I've never been to Big Bear. Is it expensive? How long of a drive is it?

There is a meetup group for San Diego Golden Retrievers, and once Bear has his rabies and last distempter, we plan on attending more events.

I've love to see some San Diego people get together. I've seen a few on the board.

Big Bear is about 2 and a half hours north-east? I imagine the ski resorts are expensive but I don't plan on strapping skis on Buddy anytime soon I thought the location might work better for some of our Orange County friends as well, on the last thread I noticed a handful of LA-area members that couldn't quite make the drive that far south.

I keep wanting to PM you, I'm just waiting for Bear to get a little bigger! I'll PM you my cell number though, you can call or text me so we can meet up sometime.

I just assumed that sking was the only option at Big Bear since that's all I've ever heard about it.

I PM'd you my number as well.

I'm open to traveling to Big Bear... would this be a weekend kinda thing where we'd get a hotel, or is all the traveling done in one day?

Thanks for letting me pester you! I'm so interested in play dates and meeting new people.

Do you know of somewhere in big bear they could all play? I'd be more inclined to meet up at dog beach one day, closer and probably just as exciting for the dogs

While I am probably closer to Big Bear, I like the idea of a dog beach. I know there is a dog beach in Huntington Beach.

I was thinking of making it a weekend getaway, so I would rent a cabin and people could meet and hang out at the cabin as well? Big Bear is just an idea, honestly. I'm more interested in meeting other dogs than in the location

I'd love to do a dog beach, I just worry about that chilly water!

I do not think the cold water will be a problem for the dogs. Not recommended for the humans, though. Right now it is in the 40's outside, and Max is happy to hang-out in the backyard. We have taken him swimming in this kind of weather.
