Location[edit]

A sidewalk in residential Los Altos.


Participants[edit]


Plans[edit]

Simply to bike 5 miles to the hash point, and return.

Expedition[edit]

The two of us took off on bicycles from Stanford campus, the hash point being about 5 miles away. The way there was relatively uneventful, with just one wrong turn that was quickly amended. Upon arrival, we discovered that there was little interesting about this random suburban street in Los Altos. We had a spot of trouble, since Google Maps had indicated the hash point to be roughly around 407 Alvarado St., which it turns out does not in fact exist. Using GPS on foot in the near vicinity, we quickly found the point, on the sidewalk. After snapping a few photos and of course a few high-fives, we departed once again. On the return trip, we stopped to visit with some donkeys, and returned home once more.
