How about on a weekend?

If it was actually on a weekend I'd be able to make the trip up. Friday or Saturday?

And that would be a yes to the idea.

Maybe?

I may actually be able to make this by simply ignoring the rest of my life and two other rides. Where/when would one from Mountain View go to meet up with folks?
