17988Mythcon travel issues
- May 1, 2007Hi Mythcon Attendees:
For many it will be useful to approach the Bay
area (via auto) from the routes that enter Berkeley
from the I-5. That will avoid the mess. (Looked like
melted TAFFY in the news photos!!)
BART is REALLY valuable. I assume it connects with
airport, for those who aren't renting a vehicle.
People driving from Airport, cut East. Take one of the
routes that skirt the Eastern edge of East Bay
If anyone needs tips, I'm a map student/maven. I might
be able to help you all.
