    I'm in Santa Clara, right off of El Camino Real. I can fit another person in my truck if you're close by or if I'm on your way and you have space I can give you $ for gas. Are you driving Alisa? Or have you arranged a carpool already?

      Stacie, it's actually better that I go separately anyway, so please carpool with Michael. See you guys there!

    Is anyone coming to this from Mountain View or further up the peninsula? My car might be needed in two places at the same time, and it would be good to carpool to such a green event. :)
