The CABAL’s regulars meet 2nd and 4th Saturdays from 1 to 9 pm at 1105 Altschul Avenue near Gordon Avenue, Menlo Park. CABAL does frequent installations (alerting the install team being appreciated but not required), Q & A, discussion of applications and tools, and use of Deirdre & Rick’s fast aDSL Internet connection and GNU/Linux servers.
Directions to 1105 Altschul Avenue, Menlo Park
(Note that Altschul Avenue is one-way towards Avy and Sand Hill Road, in our neighbourhood.)
By car: From I-280: Exit eastbound onto Sand Hill Road, going downhill 1.5 mile to turn left (logical north) at the first major intersection, onto Santa Cruz Avenue. After two long blocks at the first traffic light, bear left (still logical north) onto Alameda de las Pulgas. In four blocks (1/8 mile) you will cross Avy Avenue, which has a Chevron station and Starbuck’s. Proceed two more blocks to turn left (logical west) onto Ashton Avenue, climbing up one block to turn left (logical south) onto Altschul Ave. 1105 Altschul is on the right, near the next cross-street (Gordon Ave.).
From US-101: Exit westbound onto Marsh Road, turning left (logical south) when Marsh Road ends after 1 mile, onto Middlefield Road. Go 1/2 mile, past Watkins Ave., Lane Place, Prior Lane, Encinal Ave. (note schoolyard), and Surrey Lane, to turn right (logical west) onto Glenwood Ave. In one mile, Glenwood crosses El Camino Real at a traffic light, becoming Valparaiso Ave.
Proceed 2 miles, one long block past the traffic light at Alameda de las Pulgas (fire station on the corner), to turn left (logical south) onto Altschul Ave. (That intersection lacks street signs, but you’ll see “Sharon Hills Park” on the far-right corner.) Proceed four blocks (1/8 mile) to 1105 Altschul Ave., on your right near the corner of Gordon Avenue. (map)
By CalTrain: Exit at Menlo Park station, then walk 2 miles logical west along Santa Cruz Avenue. Alternatively, call Rick Moen at 650-283-7902, and he’ll come pick you up. After 1.8 miles, you’ll see a graveyard on the left. Just after that, Santa Cruz Avenue turns half-left (south): Ignore that turn, proceeding straight onto Avy Avenue. Proceed five blocks (crossing Alameda de las Pulgas) to turn right (logical north) onto Altschul Avenue. 1105 Altschul will be on your left at the end of the block. (map)
By bus: Unfortunately, SamTrans routes 295 San Mateo – Menlo Park Caltrain Feeder, 83 Sharon Heights – Marsh Manor, and 85 Portola Valley/Woodside/Skylonda, as well as Stanford University’s free Marguerite shuttle bus route M (Menlo Line) run weekdays only, and therefore are no use for these events. However, you can use SamTrans’s weekend service down the El Camino Real corridor, and call Rick Moen at 650-283-7902 for pickup from downtown Menlo Park.
