 +
 +Note:  Companies //hate// impromptu visits from photographers.  Every one of these excursions turned into an escape from security forces.

 +Trippy attempted an impromptu visit with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogcow|Clarus]].  Sadly nobody at Apple knows where Clarus went.  Few knew who Clarus even was.  David cried.  Trippy was escorted out of the building by security.

 +The birthplace of Silicon Valley is a wonderfully quaint little garage on a charming little street.  Miracles can happen anywhere.

 +
 +On Computer Camp's second excursion day, we visited Google and Yahoo. 
 +
 +Note, [[http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=701+First+Avenue,+94089&layer=&ie=UTF8&z=16&om=1|Google can't map]] [[http://yhoo.client.shareholder.com/press/address.cfm|Yahoo's address]]. (Even though they're like two miles apart. Sheesh.))
 +
 +Google is everything they said it was. Utopia! Not only that, they brought in a family member for Trippy, to make him feel even more welcome. After the reunion, Trippy enjoyed a nice swim. This was Trippy's favorite visit.
 +
 +[[http://www.yahoo.com|Yahoo]]
 +
 +Poor Yahoo. Nothing could follow Google. Yahoo is right next to a top secret Lockheed Martin facility, where they flew UFOs around for Trippy. But Trippy just watched it all with a glazed expression. He was unmoved.
