    Where is this?
    If you started at San Francisco City Hall, you could reach this location in about an hour....(and your mode of conveyance was a car or or motorcycle). (And the weather and traffic gods were cooperating...)

    Default Near a PAC10 powerhouse?

    (I can't tell you how painful it was to type that title line).

    Could this be Alpine Road on the Penisula, closing in on Pescadero Road?

    Default Clue #4

    Leland's old school maybe getting the nod for the gridiron this season, but to find this mystery road you need to head north, (from San Francisco) into Marin County...

    Not enough for me to distinguish exactly what road. It could easily be a stretch of 1 north of Stinson, or one of the roads that cross the county near Mt. Tamapais like Bolinas-Fairfax or Sir Francis Drake.

    Default Ding-ding-ding

    How does someone who lives in the UK has such a good geographic recall? How much time do you have logged traveling around the USA? It really is incredible! (Actually, I may have your user name cross-wired in my brain -- perhaps you're actually a native Americano and I'm thinking of someone else?)

    Yes, I don't recall exactly where on the Bolinas-Fairfiax road this is, but here is a map that should get you pretty close!

    Yep, you're mixing me up with someone else. Born, raised. and still live right across the Bay from Marin (Pinole, CA), and occasionally hike in the Mt Tam area off of Bolinas-Fairfax, plus the backroads of Marin are fun driving. In fact just two weeks ago, I took a final joyride in my Z that I'm selling throughout Marin (& Sonoma) county.

    And just to answer the question, I've taken two cross country road trips (all pics I've posted have been mine) for a combined 3 months in '06 and '07. Before then I'd never driven farther east than Vegas.

    Default Well, then this is your backyard!

    OK, I am confused -- not that surprising actually -- but excellent work solving this location puzzle!

    Default OK, here's another building ...

    No clues at this stage as I reckon someone will get this one fairly quickly.



    Where is it and who lived here?

    Default Not one I recognize

    But I imagine that some of our historically-minded members will know immediately.

    Default Final Ride?

    I just re-read this -- I know the feeling, I had to sell my lowered-race-suspension-etc Infinity and I/m about to "convert" some more favorite assets in order to keep going in this fun economy.
