Earlier in the year I started a series of blogs about the “Geekiest Hot Spots” in Silicon Valley, with the first one being the HP Garage in Palo Alto–where two Stanford students, David Packard and Bill Hewlett, started building the audio oscillators that would be the foundation of Hewlett-Packard. That garage is informally known as “The Birthplace of Silicon Valley.”
This garage in Los Altos, where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first Apple computers, is even closer to my home (I can easily bike there on my way to Trader Joe’s) and, it’s a new virtual Geocache site!
My husband and I found the virtual geocache (which means visiting the site and taking a selfie) one morning a couple weeks ago after the return to Standard Time made it too dark for us to go cache hunting in the evenings. If it weren’t for the geocache, and the obvious “No Trespassing!” signs, we probably wouldn’t have noticed it. It’s a very normal-looking house, with a normal-looking front door.
What is it about garages? My theory is that here in CA nobody has a basement, so what used to go in the basement now goes in the garage. Or at least that is why, even after living here more than two years, we still don’t park our cars in ours. Maybe we should all spend more time in our garages, being creative and puttering around!
