Thanks Bruce! 

You're right about a Bay Area g2g - I had planned to stay with my folks in Tiburon if that happened, but I had not thought through the need for decent accomodations with safe parking for the other out-of-towners...Oops. Similarly, Tahoe is probably gangbusters year round now that I think of it. I still like the idea but have no idea of costs at all. 

I like this Guernville idea; Any idea what the price range per night is at this place? The location sounds great. I'm a coast-junkie myself, so anything close to the beach gets extra points with me, salty air or not!
