I am a die-hard list maker.
I always start days ahead to make my list of 'must have' items to pack and bring along.
Here is my checklist of the items I am bringing to the get-together at Sylvia's.
Is there anything I have forgotten?
And, anyone have other suggestions?

My items:
Comfortable clothes & shoes, etc
PJ's and Slippers
Toiletry items
Medications (this makes me feel old)
Lightweight jacket for cooler nights
Travel coffee mug
Book
Camera
Cell phone charger
A Folding chair to use at the beach area
Flat Sheet for the bedding(to protect bedding from dirty doggy paws)
Serving dishes/plates for my pot luck items
My Pot Luck items

Dog items:
Copy of Rabies vaccination certificate
Dog collars and leashes
Poop bags
Dog food
Dogs' Food & water bowls
Drinking water for the pups
Dog crates and crate beds
Water bucket & clip
Free standing x-pen, for time-out space if needed at the beach area
Doggy towels for dirty or wet doggy paws
Dog brush & comb, just in case
Doggy treats, of course

Hi Marianne,

As a fellow list maker myself (I currently have 8 lists going right now). So these are a few things that are on my list that you did not mention:

Nightgown
Slippers
Pillow (I need my "special pillow") :wk
Purse (I am very forgetful) :bang

Here is an example of the type of lists I have going. Supplies for the coach, grocery store, Costco, WalMart, food from home, check supplies in the coach and instructions for Kevin :gig Also, things that I have to do before leaving home; such as set the fish up with a feeder, set a night light for the house and least of all dye my hair! :evil

See ya very soon! :wnk

Dawn :paw

I also have pet medications on my list. :dk I am considering bringing X-pens. Hope you have a good idea on how to secure them as Chloie is a jumper. She used to jump the 3' X-pens and might try again. :OMY She still jumps the lattice dividers at home!

Thanks.

Dawn, Will you be going to Costco on Friday (up at Sylvia's)? Or was your mention of Costco in preparation for the trip. Right now it looks like I'll be needing to find the Costco nearest to Sylvia's to go to on Friday (we will be arriving on Thursday).

Gail,
I am arriving on Thursday evening and have a Costco run planned for Friday. I have an appointment in Antioch, and will go to the Antioch/Pittsburg Costco after my appointment.
I will be happy to add your items to my Costco shopping list.

Hi Gail,

I believe Kevin will be making his trip to Costco this weekend. I see that Marianne has stated that she will pick up your items for you. I hope that this helps. I do see that the directions from where you live to Sylvia's takes you right through Antioch.

If not, there is a chance that Kevin might have to do more shopping and he could take you there Friday.

Well, now you know that the local Costco is in Antioch. About 15 miles from Sylvia's.

Hope that this helps! :wnk

Dawn

Hi Sylvia,

Google maps shows going up 101. The alternative route was shown as up I5, which is about 10 miles farther. I can see why they would go to I5 and come straight up! Geezzz, they miss the Antioch Bridge!

I think that I am finally used to it! Have not tried it in high winds though. That will be a "white knuckle" ride. :OMY

OH! Well, wishful thinking on my part!

:raz Dawn

When I drove to Santa Barbara from Antioch, I drove on Hwy 101, and went right by Grover Beach.

Ah, I think I understand the "go to Costco on Friday" rather than "on the way"--
it's still too hot to leave a dog in the car while shopping at Costco, on the way...

...and, hmmm, it seems everybody is right about how Gail might travel, 6 of one, half dozen of the other, almost identical time-wise and mileage. The only difference would be how soon she wants to get into the heat!

Safe travels, Gail!

Hi Marianne, Dawn & Kevin, Sylvia, and Chris,

Wow! Thanks for all your offers of help for my Costco shopping. By the way, Sylvia is right about us traveling up I 5. Our route from Arroyo Grande (10 minutes from Jim Zim's) is North on #101 to Paso Robles, East on #46 then onto #41 to the Avenal turnoff (which is a left turn). Travel up through the town of Avenal which takes one right onto I 5; North on I 5 all the way to the #12 Rio Vista turnoff (I believe it's #12) and that takes us right over to Sylvia's. While I do know how to get there through Antioch (my mother used to live in Concord) I prefer the faster I 5 way rather than driving through all the city traffic.

We will be leaving home Thursday morning, hoping to arrive at Sylvia's around 3 p.m. After arriving I'll check with Dawn and Kevin to see if Kevin will be needing to go to Costco on Friday and I'll also check with Marianne about her offer, too. Originally I had planned to stop at our Costco in San Luis Obispo on the way up but decided that's too early to purchase some dessert items.

Thanks for all you help and suggestions AND the lists that everyone has posted. I need to get busy on our list. Reese has her own little red suitcase which holds all her "needs"; medications and treatment necessities in addition to her food, etc. etc. Wayne and I are really excited about seeing everyone and also meeting some of the folks on the forum that we haven't met personally.

Many thanks to Sylvia for hosting all of us and also many thanks to Dawn for pulling everything together and keeping us all so well informed. :Clap

Gail :paw
