BTW, I think you might find Mt. Ham a bit on the "Hot" side. I was up there about a month ago and down the backside into Livermore area. At that time of the year it was very hot with the top down. Maybe a drive up Skyline to Half Moon Bay for lunch might be a consideration. I would say the ocean would be a natural air conditioner. Or some winery's in the Los Gatos mountains. Just my 2 cents.
P.S. Last time Trent and I drove Mt. Hamilton last summer, it WAS bloody hot, but more than that, we turned back because the road was so rough. Not sure if they've repaved it since, but that's a consideration for me EVER driving it until they get the road surface fixed.

Kev & I are considering going on Saturday. Maybe the first meeting place would be Santana Row in San Jose (map) and the next meeting point to pick up any Northern Peninsula folks would be at Alice's Restaurant on Skyline or Page Mill Road/280 exit (that's if you go straight up I-280 from Santana). I was on Page Mill Road about a month ago, great paved twisty road. Just a suggestion.

Final Details

So, the "Drive" is the big winner - taking 3/4th of the vote (including Gerry's "in spirit" one ).

1st Meeting Point: Santana Row at 9am. Departing at 9.30am. Route: 280-Page Mill Rd-35 to Alice's; OR, 9-35. Decide at the venue.
2nd Meeting Point: Alice's Restaurant on Skyline at 10.30am. Departing at 10.45am. Route: 84-1N.
Lunch Venue: Sam's Chowder House (4210 North Cabrillo Highway, Half Moon Bay. 650.712.0245). Arriving at 11.30am, just beating the lunch rush

Here is a tentative route link (please ignore the various 'destinations' along the way):

Thanks a bunch Dede & Tom for all the excellent suggestions/PMs!

Just a bit of info

From Alice's Resturant


...going down La Honda Road (West) to San Gregorio (store & rest stop)



you can take Stage Coach Road going north then go north on Hwy 1 to Sam's Chowder House or whatever you choose.

Carol and I will meet you at Alices. Actually it will be easier to gather across the street at the larger parking lot. It won't take long to reach the lunch destination because you will be on Hiway 1 all the way. Some alternate roads are 84 to Stage Rd at San Gregario, Hiway 1 to Tunitas Creek to Verde to Purisima to Half Moon Bay to lunch wherever. You need a different map. Just an idea.
