Rob, where is it you live?  A compromise might be appropriate, somewhere 
in the East Bay.  Oakland or Berkeley would be ideal for me, because I'm 
probably taking the train down and hopping off in Emeryville.  And 
Berkeley might be halfway affordable in July.  Plus, accessible to 
public transit.

Even for me I'd like to plan on a whole week to make it worth the trip, 
and I'm practically local.  The question is, how much of that week do we 
want to spend together?  I think many of us would prefer to not take 
that much time off work, even those who have to travel.  So they might 
take off early.  As such i suspect RACC Con 2012 will take up a 
traditional convention weekend, Friday night to Sunday afternoon.  In 
subsequent days, I could stick around and play California tour guide.  I 
do have San Francisco experience.

That many of us could probably negotiate a hotel rate, if we all stayed 
together.  Might even get a free banquet room there, provided it's 
attached to the hotel restaurant.  I could take the lead in organizing 
that, if we can agree on a neighborhood.  Rob will need to advise on the 
neighborhood, though.

south-of-the-border schizophrenic delusions...  But never mind, I've 
found me the ideal job.  I'm going to run for President!
