Rides to Collect Local ABC Letters, August, 2018
I'm collecting points for my 2018 HOG ABC's
Each new calendar year, I start over with a blank slate.
Monday August 20
This year has gotten off to a very late start
Something about having a lady friend who is not yet ready to be a two wheel passenger
Cupertino CA Post Office is a favorite visit for points

City letter "C"
Next stop for today was the Monta Vista Fire Station
on upper Stevens Creek for a County Letter

County letter "S"
Across the street is the Saratoga CA Post Office
For now, I will use it for the state and the country

State "California", Country "United States"
Next, I headed down to Los Gatos Post Office

City Letter "L"
Monte Sereno City Hall
Again, I was able to include myself

City Letter "M"
Wednesday August 22
I got off to a bit of a late start
a little after noon

I forgot that coming home I would
pay for that with commute traffic

The only thing less fun than
standing in the middle of the fast lane on 280
is doing that repeatedly.
First stop today is the town of Portola Valley

City Letter "P"
Over the hill (who? Me?))

I stopped at the San Gregorio General Store
Next to the store is a tiny Post Office

I do not recall noticing this before
Over to the coast, next stop was Pescadero

I'll use this for state of California (replacement)
I noticed a mural on the side of a building

Symbolic of people in Pescadero
Up the coast to Half Moon Bay

City Letter "H"
Over to the HMB Post Office

I'll use this for United States (replacement)
Getting pretty hungary

HMB has a familiar McDonalds
Up the coast a little further is El Grenada

City Letter "E"
Last stop was in Woodside

An official sign for a City Letter "W"
Sunday August 26
During my upcoming Ride Up the Coast I will be collecting letters for this year's ABC's of Touring letters

Having gotten a late start, I am anxious to collect letters
Normaly, I have collected letters on the peninsula and on the lower east bay separately,
but today I decided to combine the two
First stop was up in Belmont

for a city "B"
Next stop was in Redwood City

for a photo of their arch.  city letter "R"
Heading south on El Camino to Atherton

Town Hall for a city "A"
Across the Dunbarton Bridge to Union City

The post office for a city "U"
A bit south to Newark

City Civic Center for an "N"
Swinging to the east for Fremont City Hall

A city letter "F"
Last stop today was also in Fremont
