I thought it would be considerate to immediately write you back
and explain my reference to the Marriott chain, especially since
you're being kind enough to offer your time pro bono. LOL

I get employee rate at the Marriott and thus I can stay at locations
for around $40 (plus tax) a night.  In Cali that's not too far from a
hostel rate. :)

Are you are aware of any regional buses that run from Sacramento
or Roseville to the Empire National Park?  Roseville was about as
far as the Marriott map stretches toward Grass Valley.

I wouldn't mind jumping on a regional bus, back and forth from Sac
or Roseville if we decided to weave a Sunday and Monday session

In Service of THE ONENESS,
Rafiki "The Digital Doctor" Cai
