    Runny a little late, how can I catch up with you guys at Half Moon Bay around 10:30? Is there a phone number?

  • Nitin

    Hi Shawn. Is there still carpool space available at the los gatos lot? I am considering not driving but getting a ride if there is still space.

    June 21, 2013

    • Shawn B.

      No guarantees about carpool space.

      June 21, 2013

      So this is only a 5 mile hike and will be finished around 3?

      June 21, 2013

    • Shawn B.

      Hike is about 5 miles. 3 is my best guess.

    Does the hike start at 10 am or are we meeting at the Half Moon Bay Coffee place @ 10 am?

    June 13, 2013

    • Shawn B.

      The hike starts at the coffee shop. After introductions and some mapping party instructions for those interested, we walk through town to the state beach about 10:10. Follow the mapping party details links for info.

    I know GPS well. So if anyone wants a little class before we begin let me know. Maybe meet a little early if you like :)

    1 · June 1, 2013

    • Shawn B.

      At 10 AM, there is a tight schedule to get the hike started, and to instruct on the use of the GIS units to those I loan them to. You can help out there. And if you want to hold forth before 10 AM or at the post hike mapping party you are welcome to do so.

  • Maylin

    This will be my first time to be in halfmoon bay. Looking forward!

    May I carpool with someone? I live in North San Jose, but willing to meet at Los Gatos or some where else. Please give me an address to meet, so I can find the place for carpooling...

    Thanks a lot!

    Can I bring sextant?

    1 · May 28, 2013

  • Nitin

    Anything special about those GPS units on loan or can I bring my own handheld GPS? ...Mine is really old without any detailed maps. I've never done a mapping party before.

    May 28, 2013

    • Shawn B.

      I have 2005 issue Garman Legends. You can certainly bring your own. You don't need an existing map for the mapping party.

      May 28, 2013

  • Nitin

    The Los Gatos lot is close to me. I can pick up some carpoolers there if needed. Let me know i you need to be picked up otherwise I will go directly to Half moon bay.
