Walk 4 the Walk

11:48 AM PDT on June 24, 2009

The walk will begin at Pico Boulevard and Central Avenue in
the industrial/warehouse core of southeast Downtown Los Angeles and run
to that bourgeois jewel, the City of Santa Monica, at Ocean Avenue and
Pico Boulevard.  The walk is 15.4 miles, and with a few stops for food,
plan on about 8 hours.  Let's meet at 10 am on the corner of Pico &
Central this Saturday, June 27.

I want to get greek food at Papa Christo's at Pico/Normandie, tacos at
Tacomiendo at Pico/Gateway, and possibly a burger at the Apple Pan,
cause I've never been there.  There are a bunch more places to eat, so
no worries about going hungry.  Please give me suggestions.

The last walk, I collected GPS travel time data, but I didn't do
anything with it.  Any UCLA planning folks want to do some data

Pico Boulevard, as you probably know, is named after Pio Pico, the last
Mexican Governor of Alta California.  As with all of these walks, we
will come across some cool/funny shit.
