Cool! Looks like they're fixing that up. I haven't been out there in years. Wherever that is, of course... Now plotting scooter route.

I've no clue what that thing is. Neither do the six people I know. (assuming you just gave a hint, I'm off to do some research!)

I thought it looked familiar. Haven't been there in years.
If this damned weather would go away, I can ride up there
to tag it!

I think that was a good hint. It's just raining too hard to take that long of a ride (for me, that is).

Yeah, the rain is a drag. But at least it's good for the local Ecology (that's another hint )

Finally a break in the weather!

Froze my butt off riding up there but I made it

It is the Old Sea Scout Building in Palo Alto at the Harbor.
Back in 1982, I was a part of the crew of the Gryphon and
we were stationed there.

Great tag BWelter. I was getting ready to go and see you snagged it. Waiting for next one before the rain starts again.

I figured the weather was clear at least today and enough people sounded
like they had an idea where it was, so I had better hurry. If the weather
holds I will get one in the next couple of days

Well done! I used to ride my bicycle along the bay from Shoreline up to there when I lived in Mountain View. Nice to see they're fixing it up.

Good job snagging it, BWelter51.

Yeah, the building was condemned many years ago and they were going to bulldoze it, but local groups were able to raise enough money to have it renovated. They are turning it into an Ecology education center -- the Scouts are gone. The structure and shell of the building has been redone, but work seems to have stalled on the inside for the last year...

Sorry for the delay, Mother Nature really hasn't been cooperating to get this done.
I have a Plan B place that I will go get today rain or shine.

OK, Finally some good weather and I jumped on the MP3.
Sorry for the delay, the weather was horrible and then I went out of town with
my wife to celebrate our 25th anniversary.

Anyway, here you go!

If the last place was the North Pole, this one would be more like the South Pole.
Down near where you used to be able to have "the fastest fun in the West".

OK, Looks like we might need another little hint....

The name of the street that this building sits on ends with the same thing
that lots of people will have for Easter Dinner tonight.

Edit: 5/6 - Another hint for the weekend.... There is a library with the same
first name as this building about 2 blocks away at a busy intersection

There's a wildlife refuge in Alviso?! How many times have I been out there - on scoot, on foot, and in car, and I've never happened upon that place... Go figure!

Yeah it's really tucked out of the way. Their website says not to bother with gps or google maps cause they can't find it. Though google must have updated, I had no problem.

Will get a new tag up soon. Have guets in this weekend, so a bit tied up.
