August meetup

This is a nice park with redwood trees and a few picnic tables and benches around where we can sit if anyone brings lunch or snacks.

Note the address is University Ave. in Los Altos, not Palo Alto.

The park entrance is a paved path between two houses in a residential area. Look for the sign labeled "Redwood Grove Nature Preserve" with the numbers 474 and 482 on top of it. (Street view map)

Park on the street on University Avenue; there is no parking inside the park.

Meet by the pink house numbered 482 that is down the path and around a bend. Look for our Meetup sign with the seven-pointed star. We'll probably wait there about 15 minutes for everyone to show up, but if you're later than that, hopefully it won't be that hard to find us, because the park isn't all that large.

For the carless: Getting here purely by public transit is probably not the easiest thing. There is a bus stop a little over half a mile away at El Monte and University. I can give up to 2 people rides from elsewhere in the south bay or pick up at Caltrain (Mountain View station) or possibly BART (though the closest station is Fremont).

      Hi! I didn't make the connection between your name here and who I know you as, heh. If you need a ride from CalTrain or something, just let me know by about 8 PM Saturday, ok?

      Thanks! I'll probably drive to this one as it's pretty much one town over.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
