Hi SWheeler,

I just moved out of Santa Barbara a few months back. My work is still based there so I make it back pretty often, but still miss the heck out of the place.

There's an active member in Ventura, and I think a couple more in Ventura County. The closest chapter is LA and they're meeting on Saturday: viewtopic.php?t=68203 Never could justify the drive, personally but I think that's what you're stuck with at this point. Maybe you could drum up some interest on the board or with colleagues or something? I'm sure with all that money in that town, SOMEONE has to be in to passively investing ;)

If both of you are interested in getting a Santa Barbara Chapter going, and you get three more interested Bogleheads, let me know via PM and we'll get a Santa Barbara Chapter started.

I visit Santa Maria from time to time, so perhaps I could drop in on one of your Chapter meetings when I'm in CA.

I'd be interested. I live in Ventura. The Los Angeles chapter is too far a drive for me. I work in Simi Valley, and that's too far as it is.

I am in Ventura County and would consider a meeting in Santa Barbara.
