16-Oct-2013 -- Back in California for the second trip this year. This time I attended the ASA annual meeting (asa.org) in San Francisco to report on results from our team.

As usual during these professional trips I save a few days for tourism around the meeting area. But this time I haven’t much time left to devote to CP visits so I choose 3 points that were really easy to reach as they lie very close to a road. We successively visited N38 W122, N39 W121 and N38 W121.

N38 W122 is very easy to reach but is still impossible to zero as it is located on military (navy) ground behind a fence. As all previous visitors we had to stay behind that fence 50 m (more or less) from the CP. It seems that the projects cited by J. Kerski in his 2006 narrative are far from achievement. Not much else to see in the area ; at most I am able to confirm that the road is actually very busy. Be cautious and visit safely !
