20 people went on the hike.
* 5 cars: 1x1 (north bay), 2x5 (Sunnyvale), 1x5 (Foster
city), 1x4 (Milpitas). All were mostly on-time.
* Thanks to all the drivers and also the passengers for
the tight spaces - as we ended up have 3 cars of 5 people
each, in order to save one car (160 mi and ~140 lbs of

5:00 pm (last group).

group and taking care of some newbies.
* Distance: 19 miles (i thought it was closer to 20.5
mi, but the timestamps and distance markers showed that
I was off. 19 mi is probably accurate to within 0.2 mi)

* 19 went to dinner in Sunset (Taraval & 19th av):
ªø¦¿«È®a (Szechuan Taste Resturant).

I was extremely disappointed that one of the hikers
littered while hiking. I did pull this person aside
and asked them to go back to pick up the trash. This
kind of behavior will not be tolerated, ever, no matter
how small the trash is.
We are very fortunate to live in this beautiful place,
let us keep it beautiful. I don't care if your home
is a pigsty, but out in the parks or for that matter,
anywhere public, you should know better. Even if you
think the trash is 'bio-degradable', you should never
ever litter. This includes things like orange peels,
apple cores, or even tiny pieces of tissue paper.
This is as serious of a matter as being on time for
carpooling in my opinion. I hope to never catch such
an act again. Thanks a lot.
