first thursdays are in effect for those of you in and around the peninsula. join us for happy hour at mandala lounge in san mateo around 6:15 PM. happy hour specials run through 8:00 PM.

there are a variety of restaurants within walking distance and mandala allows you to bring in take out food, so we're set if we want to chow on something.

if you're a lurker and just want to talk shop or learn more about the fj, feel free to drop by.

we'll be talking about the upcoming corral hollow/slick rock trip in august and will touch on the high sierra trip as well. we'll also recap the WAMP run too.

current roster:
sonof40

Interesting place and MySpace page. I'll calendar the date and try to make it on August 7th.

Tried to spot it on Google streetview but couldn't ID it. I gather it's down the street from Togo's. Do they have a parking lot? Too bad there's no horse racing at Bay Meadows any more. ;)

Headed for Mt. Lassen tomorrow for some camping and hiking at Juniper Lake, but not much off-roading. The following week, I'm headed to the Lost Coast to do Run #4 in Wells' Guide to CA Backroads (which I believe you have, Steve), which is supposed be a very easy but desolate trail that connects runs along the coast southest of Leggett to Honeydew west of Humboldt Redwoods State Park. I plan to camp on the beach the 1st day and at Humboldt the 2nd.

I don't see any mention of an August Corral Hollow/Slick Rock run in the Norcal forum. Is it a public or private trail run? If public, post some info about it. I might be interested in doing it as a tune up for my Rubicon run in September. Let me know, thanks! :)

yup, between togo's and the railroad tracks. we usually park across the street at the motorcycle dealership after they close. btw, bay meadows has one more round of races when the county fair comes to town. be sure to say farewell to historic bay meadows before it signs off forever.

As noted elsewhere, I have to skip this M&G because it's my GF's b-day, but I'll be going on the Corral Hollow/Slick Rock Run on 8/22-8/24.

:bump: for today's happy hour.

looks like we'll have plenty to talk about over a few cold ones - trail runs, opg's bronco story, swr meter usage, mozzarella...possibly even the website.

there's a lot (motorcycle shop) across the street that we can park in. if we all park diagonally with our noses facing southeast (pointed at the shop and towards 25th) we should all be able to fit.

make sure you get there before manoweb because he likes to take the "shortcut" and face his rig the other way. :lol:

see you guys there. :cheers:
