We will definitely be covering airfare to San Francisco and such;  we
would likely want help at least for lodging in the location where we do
a presentation.  Depending on how the set of groups shake out, we might
be either renting a car to drive up (e.g., to Portland and Seattle) or

Hmmm, actually looking at a map, that drive is a little farther than my
fifteen-year-old memory.  ~450 miles from San Francisco to Portland, but
only about 100 from Portland to Seattle?  That makes flying a lot more
attractive:  airfare from SFO to PDX looks to be ~$230 per person.

I wrote the Seattle group as well:  doing a joint meeting would
obviously be less expensive / stressful, so if that idea appeals to both
groups, we'd be glad to take that route.
