Half Moon Bay Newcomers Hike and Mapping Party

Open to everyone.  A easy hike along  recreational trails from Half Moon Bay State Beach to a small beach just south of the Ritz-Carlton hotel.  8 miles, 50 ft elevation change.  We will walk along the ocean bluffs enjoying the breezes. Bring lunch, liquids and sun block. This is an opportunity to get to know the Peninsula Regional Group, Loma Prieta Chapter and Sierra Club.

$5 to $10 parking charge at the state beach.

    It was great timing, weather-wise...a relief to what was occurring inland! The opportunity to explore GPS was appreciated; we will all probably have more of a need to get to know it better as time goes on, so putting more attention in a short amount of time would be helpful. Can there be more than 5 units? Can there be an all-around upload/down load/session right after the hike? In the shade, with cold beverages and good guidance, would be a nice way to wrap up the hike and the technology part.

      I have 6 GPS units loaned from CloudMade. One no longer works. I think I have enough trouble managing those! OSM experts used to show up at the mapping parties with their own laptop, I think the repetition is the reason they no longer show up. They prefer the "scatter" type, which I can't usually do.
