This is ONE OF 4 responses to VC 30 Drury 3 ("Reunion time")...
I'd say spring or summer would be a great time to congregate at Mt. Tam for an Archipelago reunion. The wild flowers bloom in late spring/early summer and are quite spectacular, but the landscape also has its charms without them.
There are some rustic looking cabins on the mountain that I think Janine said were open to the public to stay in. I don't know about price or availability, though, and will have to find out more. I think it would be more fun to all stay together right there, but alternatively, there would probably be enough space among the dwellings of the Bay Area Archipeligans to house any visiting members.
Anyway, I hope some of the other members would be interested, and I'll be looking forward to the possibility.
