As someone who grew up in the birth of Silicon Valley I was going to call you on staying as far north as Belmont being nowhere near Silicon Valley, but I moved away over 25 years ago (showing my age) and when I googled it, and found on Wikipedia, that Silicon Valley has grown from the 3 mile radius of "Apple Way" (which is probably history by now since Apple has since moved to a complex that is probably 3 miles from Apple Way, only REALLY old timers remember Apple Way) to the entire peninsula on both the east and west bay! Wow! I am truly a Southern Californian, and perhaps I'm glad (since I am in such close proximity to DL!). So Enjoy your expanded SV trip, I can't even give you tips since it's been so long since I've really been there, the only thing I know that is still there that isn't worth going is a Damn Cruise by the Damn near my HS which I don't even know the name of, but we used to drive that way home in HS because it was scenic and we enjoyed it. I always like to take that cruise when we go back because it is nostalgic, but for people who didn't grow up with it, there really isn't much meaning.... Anyways...I am reminiscing on your TR....let's get back to our regularly scheduled programing!
