Seattle Meetup, May 7

Seattle meetup map

Nikos, babu and peggysue will meet at the Rosario Strait (see the whole map).

For the last week I have been reading details in small print of the search for the Northwest Passage, and of Vancouver’s armed tender “Chatham,” and of Captain Robert Gray — like us out of Boston — the first American to stand on what is now Washington. This from the fine print at the bottom of a map looking North from the Olympic Mountains across Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan De Fuca to Mount Baker, which the map tells me is 10,778 feet tall.

Were it not completely clouded over, I might even be able to se a strip of Canada beyond.

The map arrived at the office in a cardboard tube last week from babu. I promptly claimed it for my own and tacked it over my desk. Applied to the map in red printed stickers is a series of trails and legends, describing how babu and Nikos are going to meet peggysue at the Anacortes Ferry Terminal. A Vespa will be employed.

The short version: babu has planned an Open Source Seattle-area meetup. You too are invited.
