    Maybe his "real" meant "way" NorCal.

    Where does Vacaville stand? Real NorCal? Or faux Norcal?

    We're sure not Bay Area. We use that as a reference point for out-of-the-area folks.

    real nor-cal

    HA! LOL
    you all know im halfway serious....
    but seriously... if i have to drive 2-3 hrs south to get to teh bay area-im in nor-cal...
    and anything south of the grapevine is LA... =)
    in my redneck backwoods mind anything north of sac is nor-cal... where there is space between towns, people dont look at you funny if your 4wd has mud on it, your M/S tires actually SEE mud and snow.. =) where its all about growing food and not about growing subdivisions... =)

    course you all know CA is better than all those eastern states... i have a friend who moved east for work and teasingly wrote me about eh massive strenuous and intense climbs to the top of mountains out there.. at 2500' + jokingly of course...
    especially since he knows i reg ride that high on a bike or drive that high for work... =)
    mark. not startin a flame war-just making a funny observation.
    and BTW-i love nor-cal, its the suits in sac i hate...

    Nope, from South Bay ... like San Jose, Santa Clara.

    BTW, what defines NorCal? I guess we've been posting in the wrong forum. There is no Silicon Valley, or Peninsula regional forum.
    I'm in it to finish it.

    I think the commonly accepted line is SLO, but if you acutally divide the state in half its somewhere around Salinas. If you divide the state into thirds, real Nor-Cal starts above Sacramento, then there is Central California until a point just north of SLO/Bakersfield and then finaly So-Cal. (I drew a line from the NW corner of CA down to San Diego on Google Earth)

    I can't remember where the line is drawn if you split the population in half, my guess is probably near SLO somewhere.

    I live in SJC, but I used to live in Chico, does that count?

    Here's how I see it ...

    LA County down to the Mexican border is SoCal

    From Ventura to Monterey is Central Coast

    North of Monterey is NorCal.
