2023 Pacific Sharkfest

Post by Steve M6 »

This year we chose another location for the Pacific Sharkfest. Home base was Oakhurst, CA. A tour was organized around Bass Lake in the Sierra Nevada foothills on Friday.

The Saturday drive was to Yosemite National Park with a stop at the historic Wawona Hotel.

A lunch was served at Glacier Point. The weather turned out to be rainy on Saturday - no way to plan for that, and it did not dampen our event.

Thanks to Pat and Jean Jacquemet (ONEBADM) for the great planning of this event. Holding the PSF in a different location requires much pre-planning for hotel, parking, restaurants, drive planning, etc. -- that is not a requirement if going to a repeat location. We do like to move the event around to give more people an opportunity to have new experiences. We are thinking of somewhere further south and near the coast for next year.

Thanks to the organizers for all their hard work. I had a great time and look forward to next year already. It was a pleasure meeting fellow attendees. My trip from from Salt Lake City totaled 1,570 miles, average mpg at 30.75. Thanks for putting some pictures up, Steve.

One more photo to add. Everyone took off quickly from the road turnout on Highway 41 -- except for me.
