I live in the bay area but I do not drive. I was talking with jdcarpe about riding along with him. I'm not bringing a ton of keyboards but the ones I'm bringing are too heavy to bike with and too unwieldy to bring on the bus.

I may miss out on the East bay dinner tonight unless someone actually joins me at the Computer History Museum.

I am leaving the midwest at about 6PM, which I believe puts me in oakland around 7:30. Then I have to go to the hotel and drop some stuff off and all that fun stuff. Doesn't look like I will make dinner tonight but I will be there tomorrow. I should have the times figured out but I will probably need a ride from the caltrain to the 724 venue.

It's only a 25 - 35 minute walk from San Antonio Caltrain if you can't find a ride.

Would be awesome to catch a ride from the East Bay on Saturday morning, otherwise I'll just take BART and not bring as much stuff.

We have a big company van, and can easily send someone to pick people up from CalTrain Mountain View or San Antonio station.  Light rail also comes to the Mountain View station; possibly buses as well.  BART has a transfer to CalTrain at Milbrae station, which also serves SFO airport.

And we are literally 0.5 miles from the Computer History Museum, which is just one exit south of us on 101.

Inorite? JD wouldn't answer my calls as I was waiting to be picked up with no idea what was going on. I was like a confused and frightened child.   :(

And then he rolled up in a yellow convertible Camaro.
