Um, what do you mean in this gathering? I live in Vancouver, Washington; just across the border and Columbia River from Portland Oregon. There are a bunch of us in the Portland area; SandyBob (who rarely posts) MudJack, Barbara, Jonathan Lay, and MAG (even though she is in Walla Walla, I include her.) What puzzles me is that I hardly hear from anyone in Seattle. Seattle is such a huge area, there must be more people up there. Then there are folks in Vancouver BC, like Musicman and Miss Mac. Howdy... Margo

Hmmm. Well, actually, we've got lots of West Coasters, just not many Southern Californians that I know of. I'm in Sacramento, and there are a number in the San Francisco area and lots in Portland (Oregon). I think we have a couple sometime Mudcatters in British Columbia. None in Seattle that I know of.
But we're a worldwide group, as Bugsy indicatated. Ya gotta specify which West Coast you're asking about. Where are you, star2fire? Are we neighbors?

Not only is not everyone in the East, not everyone is within 100 miles of a coast. As WyoWoman alluded, there are some of us over 1,000 miles from an ocean. I'm in Kansas City, which as most (but probably not all) of you know is in Missouri. (Yes, there is also a Kansas City, Kansas, but it's smaller and we do our best to ignore it-BG.) The big plus here is a relatively short drive to the annual music festival in Winfield, KS, arguably the finest acoustic music event in the country--no, in the world--no, make that universe!

A propos of Frankie and Liz, one of my favorite bands (decidedly from the West Coast -- California) is Geggy Tah, who have a line in a song that goes "What side of the tracks are you on? Both sides, because the world is round." I think of that infallible logic often since I recently moved to the other side of the tracks in my town (ah, there's the train now. Love the sound!).

Yes, Seed, I live in that town of the biggest beer festival. About 3km (2 miles) from the festival area, and every working day I pass by it.
And I hate the beer festival - I myself prefer wine, and it is such a mess with up to two million people (at peak times) on that small area. I usually try to take holidays during the beer festival to evade the traffic chaos, the stink (of pure beer, beer filtered through kidneys, beer which was drunk twice - once down and once up ...), the noise (during Octoberfest I have to turn up the volume on my TV to understand what is spoken), all the drunk people (up to last year I worked in a company about 200m (220yards) from the festival area, on the way to the city railway, and very often in the morning I had to use the backdoor to the office because the front door was blocked by drunk people sleeping in front of the doors).

About celebrating October in September: it is called Octoberfest because the festival traditionally ends on the first Sunday in October (and start two weeks before that). Nowadays it can last even longer, but only if the first Sunday in October is the 2nd of October, because then it ends on Monday, 3rd October (3rd October being our national holiday - the day of the re-union of east and west Germany)
But perhaps we celebrate October in September because "in Bavaria the clocks are working different" (In Bayern gehen die Uhren anders - a popular proverb here). You can actually buy "Bavarian" clocks where the watch hands turn anti-clockwise!

Once upon a time, from Philadelphia, then up and down the West Coast for a while, including Portland and Seattle, where I rediscovered folk music, and now even farther west, Hilo, on the rainy side of the Big Island of Hawaii, where the music is much harder to come by, but the rain is warmer. I've seen at least one posting from a Seattle folkie here on the Mudcat (hi, Mary), and I can't believe there aren't more lurking about.

Hmmmm, well, we are all east of somewhere, however, I am on Saint Marks Place, the Lower East Side of manhattan, called by yuppies who dont know any better, the east village - We believe we are the center of the eastern conceptual univerce, but we may well be wrong. However, every underage kid in New Jersey travels east to get tanked here on every weekend, retreating west in the wee hours of the morning to paint the Jersey Trunpike red, so maybe we are some sort of spirtual east, drawing New Jerseys teens like moths to a fire...
