I get so jealous seeing all these people who are able to meet and talk diapers etc. I am in Tracy Ca and would love to meet some other like minded moms. Is there anyone in my area or am I all by my lonesome?

I know I've seen that they had a Bay Area diapering party not long ago.

I'm in Northern California but a few hours away from you between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe.

Hi Mamas There's a bunch of us and we had a great cding party about 6 mos or so ago in San Ramon. The majority of us came from the Bay Area. A couple of us have been talking about having another party sometime soon. Are you interested?

I'm just south of Turlock! It's not too far! I've been wanting to go to Tracy lately. I heard you guys opened up some new outlets since I've been there last. I used to live in Patterson and Tracy was so close!

My dh goes to Tracy (on his way to work) about 2-3 days a week to work out there at the gym.

What is it with people thinking California ends at Sacramento? Tracey, Turlock, Modesto, Sacramento are NOT Northern Cali. Just to dispel a few myths. I live in Northen California. Beautiful, mild climated, cruncy Humboldt County. About 2 hours away from the Oregon Border. And did I mention BEAUTIFUL? I am not trying to sound mean but I am so tired of hearing oh I live in Northern CA...ya, I live in Turlock. That is CENTRAL California...check a map ladies please! I am only annoyed because I would love to meet up with cloth diapering mommies that use(d) more than just gerber prefolds and flats.

ITA! I was so disappointed when I read where all of you ladies live. I was hoping there were actually some members in the Chico/Paradise area. We are 1.5-2 hours north of Sac. And redding is 1.5 hrs north of us!

Mommie2Brittani~ How far north of Chico are you?

I am about 3-4 hrs N.West of Chico. (depending on what route you take?) We are on the Northern Coast of CA...Great waves but too cold to surf! I used to live in Red Bluff when I was in High School. I missed out on the last Diaper Party cuz I was not keeping dd in the car for 5 hrs.

Woah, easy mama! I live in the SF bay and you will NOT convince me that I live in Central Cali. I live in Northern California, thankyouverymuch! Its a matter of perception, no matter what a map has to say.

I would love to have another diaper party! The San Ramon one was great, we had a wonderful turnout. We had a tie-dye diaper party at veganmamma's in Concord a few months later, that was fun too.

In addition to dates, let's list where we all live and pick a central location for us all too. I'm in Concord. Weekdays are good for us, but we can do weekends too.

radish, I'd love to meet you! Are you back in the area again?

Duh, self, people are already doing that.

So here's what we have so far:

Concord
Humbolt County
Tracy
2 Between Sacto and Tahoe (be more specific please!)
Turlock
3 Sacto
Novato
Auburn

Looks like this party will be in the Sacto area!

Not to be nit picky, but according to the map of california, Sacramento is in the northern part, I don't think it's central at all. I'm mean, it's not WAY north, but it's not in the middle. More like lower northern.

Oh my goodness I am so sorry. I surely didn't want to stir anything up. I merely wanted to meet some other moms in my area. I am truly sorry if I rubbed anyone thr wrong way. It seems as though we are located all over the northern and central parts of Cali. Lets try and see if we can all find one location to meet and if that doesn't seem workable, maybe split and met in an area that is closer to us? Does this make sense? I totally understand not wanting to dive 3+ hours, I wouldnt either. So if it isnt feasable lets have two different get togethers. Hth!!!
