    Congratulations! Bweaves. DH and I are going also. I can't wait to meet you in person. Are you driving or flying in?

    Booked my flights, and the hotel rooms before and after have also been reserved.

    Correct me if I am wrong, however, I believe it is PG Ruckus and not PP.

    Oh Gosh, I really didn't make the distinction between PP and PG, because Jeremy and Hisano are putting it on. Either way, I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

    I posted this on PG, too. I'm staying on in California after Ruckus to travel with my hubby. He wants to see the wine country and the redwoods.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for good Bed and Breakfasts in those areas?
    Any place we definitely should go and sight see?

    We're more into old bookstores and trees than Hollywood or touristy things.

    NacreLover, I'll be coming and lugging my bf along, too. I've been prepping him and giving him crash course, making him read up on pearl articles and quizzing him afterwards lol. :lol:

    WOW! All these men coming. This is great news. DH will be glad to meet new guys at the Ruckus. All the pearl talk gets a little old after 24 hours and the men not in this business have other things on their mind other than pearls...
    Bweaves, I am new to CA and live inland from San Francisco...


    We purchased a Can-Am Spyder and have been driving all over the central valley looking at things on the weekends. Yosemite is beautiful and a place not to miss, but in the middle of summer will be a mad house I am sure. The gold mine country is fun and the old towns haven't changed much. Sonora, James town, Angels camp and Jackson. All are pretty close together. If you love the Coast, there are beautiful fun cities to walk around in. We usually end up in Monteray and could spend weeks there looking at new things.
    Our relatives headed up to Clear lake which is above San Francisco. They loved it there, it's near the redwoods.

    That's me in the middle in green.

    I'm in!

    BWeaves, that's so cool you get to celebrate your Pearl Anniversary at a pearl ruckus! At least DH will know where to shop for you, lol. Hisano has some awesome new men's pendants, too.

    Last year, I convinced DH the 10th anniversary should be pearl (because I didn't want tin, lol). The 11th is supposed to be steel -- maybe a pearl and steel pendant like this stunner by Andy Muller:

    I am planning on coming as well. Looking forward to seeing old friends, including CRDKeshi and Walter. CRDKeshi has remarkable taste in pearls and jewelry, and Walter is a wonderful funny guy who makes me laugh. :))

    As much as I would love ro meet everyone and have the opportunity to buy pearls, I know if I was able to attend,
    I would bankrupt my DH and myself. I have no will power. I must have been a Magpie in my other life. Magpies like crows are drawn to glittering shiny objects just like me.
