This raises another possibility -- rather than trying to stage a one-spot
summit concert, we could try coordinating other loopists along the pathway
up the coast, and I could attempt a rendezvous with them as I move north,
so that at each stop (or at least some of them) there are different
loopers to share the gig with.  This would make things a lot easier
logistically, as there would be some local support at some of the stops,
and it would also help facilitate a more genre-specific gig (multiple
loopists at one show makes a bit more sense than a solo guy making wierd
sounds between top 40 and blues bands -- at least, in general, anyway). 

Thanks for the advice, Dave; let me know how the work goes in terms of 
the Seattle-area arangements.  Anyone else interesting in trying to do 
show-by-show participations?  Far be it from me to annoint myself the 
pied piper of loopography, but this might be a very interesting way of 
solving a variety of logistical problems...
