    Nice to know you're not detaching it for the ride.

    Can I leave mine behind (pun intended) or would you gals like to look at it too? I figure I'd drop 10 lb detaching that thing myself. Wife will be home soon so I'll see if she's up for the hike. I think this motel in Buellton allows dogs as well. If not, we'll bring a tend and camp at the RV Park!

    Yeah we passed by there on the way to Santa Ynez Mission last Spring. Funny stuff, but not sure how much time she'll want to spend there. I wonder what the dog would think of the ostriches. Between that and the hike(s), she should find something to occupy herself for 5 or 6 hours. Are you all doing the 63 mile route?

    I think I'm gonna have to skip out on this one. There aren't any hotels in Solvang still available and I know it will be a pain to find parking. I was planning on booking this back in September but my crash left me wondering if I would be back on the bike in time. Still just barely thinking I could work up to that long of a ride. I wanted to relive my teen years as this was my first organized ride ever. Maybe next year.

    +1, I agree, I have done Solvang 7 times between the Prelude and the Century in the last 4 years. I am too cheap to stay at a hotel. I always drive up in the morning. It is no big deal.

    If it is 2.5 hours from Paso Robles to Santa Cruz, is should just take a little over an hour from Paso Robles to Solvang.

    I just checked mapquest from Santa Cruz to Solvang and it shows: Total Est. Time: 3 hours, 52 minutes Total Est. Distance: 230.36 miles Plus if you drive like most people from California, 3.5 hours should be easy.
