Jim,

Is Monday March 16 the official date of the Factory Tour?

Is this our go-ahead to book our flights?

Where is our meeting place?

I have a pretty good idea how to get around the city... so I'll volunteer as guide... though I'm sure most can manage with a GPS.

Warmly,

ricky

PS - Norman, are you coming? Would be cool if we can hang out together and be billeted by local friends.

Ricky,

I've had to bail due to schedule conflicts. That is the week of school spring break AND the week my daughter is flying down from Princeton for a visit. No confusion on priorities for me.

Have a great time and take lots of group pictures!

I never knew that the larrivee factory was in East Van until I joined the facebook group today.  I've driven that road a thousand times and never ever noticed anything.....!!

I am pretty sure ya'll will have a great time.
Vancouver is one of the most beautiful places to live!

Enjoy your time with your daughter.

Looks like I need to start making plans too - Jim H already declared March 16 as the Day of the Factory Tour.   It's a Monday... I hope I can get cheap flights;

if I can't fly in a jet, I'll have to drive the Jetta... show my OO-09 hopefully to Jim & whoever else from the Forum will be there.

ricky - we'll miss you bro!

It must be nice to afford the trip. Wish I could do it. I'm the only income @ the moment, so I lose out to meet people with names & faces ! I'm envious ! Have fun to all who are going. crying

I planned a trip north (from Northern California) around a tour.  Don't quote me, but I believe they were then (about four or five years ago) offering tours on Tuesday at 1:00.  Lasted about an hour.  It was wonderful.  two players and two slightly bored, but accommodating wives.  One was from Japan and spoke little but took a hundred pictures.  It was very cool, since the "guitar thing" proved to be a common language.  Funky place putting out serious guitars (as we well know). Friendly people willing to show their stuff. I'd like to do it again.

So what is the possibility of picking up my F3 at the same time as the tour??  How cool would that be?  There seem to be a couple of LH spruce/ rosewood under construction.  Maybe one of them has my name on it.

Sorry folks, I never did realize there are already 3 pages to this thread.  I don't even remember reading page 1.

So Danny (dependan) is in. Looks like Lynda is in the process of deciding.

I guess I'm not officially in until I actually have the airline tickets - as I don't want to take the chances of the 12-hour road trip in case there's snow in the mountains.

For now, I'm planning on going. I'm in.

The cheapest tickets I checked last week is 380 CDN round trip - that's what? 100 USD  whistling

Seriously, it's cheaper for Jim H to fly all the way from New York to Seattle round trip than for me to fly to a next door province?

Really, our American friends have it sooooo good !!!   (Okay... here goes the Canucks {not the hockey team Jeff} ranting again!!!)

Ricky,

$380 and you're next door! You're joking, right? Best I can do is $440 and I'm 3,500 km away from you. Check Westjet if you haven't already.

As for me, I really want to be in, but think I need to wait for a bit before biting the bullet. Will definitely let you guys know as soon as I know. 

Just looked at Westjet and you can get all in $287.

It's the same down here. If we were having it in OH, we'd be in the same boat, plane, whatever. What about trains or carpooling?

That sounds interesting.   I love to travel by rail.   It's not fast but it's very pleasant and leisurely.
Where would you be leaving from ?  You're in the bay area arent' you ?  Would you rent a car to drive from Seattle then ? I may look into that myself.
