    I think I'll try to stop by and meet some of the new local inmates. Sounds like a good excuse to make an early afternoon Hooligan run up Hamilton and try out the new Anakee's:evil How about I bring some Garlic Bread, it travels well.

    Cool! In! Not sure what to bring yet. Just got back from Canada and found the roads to be in such good shape. Beautiful B.C.! Great people! Addy? East Foothills? Is that anywhere near Santa Cruz since that's where I'll be on Sunday. Maybe it's on the way back from SC to Oakland.

    Hey there Suzanne, Its the east foothills of San Jose, so the same mountain range that you live in or against. If you were to take Hwy 17 to Hwy 280, go right off of 17 and take 280 across 101 ( it will now be Hwy 680) and take the 3rd exit, Alum Rock Ave., go right, (east) to the end of Alum Rock Ave. (it will have a few turns). By his discription it is right there at the end of Alum Rock Ave. ( I know this because I spent my whole life in this neighborhood.) Oh, I really enjoyed Your "spacy" video of Craters of the Moom.
