    Just right for me today; not too long, enough uphill to get exercise, and nice people.

    Hi- Anyone wants to carpool from the park and ride off HWY 85 and Camden or close to that location?

    If there's anyone coming from Belmont or near there that wants to carpool, LMK and we can take highway 101 down; as long as you're staying for a bite to eat afterward. We'd leave before 7AM for the 8AM start time, get a free parking spot in the street, and walk up to the meeting place; very close by.
