A two step in your Gucci's, then look, a ROUND. Es Effo is a travel bug hotel with great views of the departure and arrival runways at SFO. Bug hotel is conveniently located on the Bayfront, one exit south of SFO, one block off the 101 on Old Bayshore. An asphalt path runs right past the cache. Only limited trading items are available. The concierge reminds travellers that carry-on size limits are 3x3x6 inches.
Note: 14 free public parking spaces at the north end of the Marriott lot (see wypt) south of the cache, a 0.15 mile walk.
Tip for SFO pax: If you have a dollar "tip" and an hour before flight, and can find "Hotel Shuttle" stops on the Departure level roadway, look for either the Westin/A-Loft or Waterfront Marriot shuttles; they come every 10-15 minutes. The southbound 292-Hillsdale SamTrans Bus comes every 30 minutes to the lower Arrivals ground level (don't hop the northbound 292); exact fare two dollars one way.
CAUTION: If a patrol car is parked 40 yds north at a SFO maintenance gate, you can tell them you are just geocaching.
UPDATE 4/02/2003. After the Spring cleaning, the bug hotel is back. Thanks go to Stacy&Jerry, TeamClubZ, Robotman, and gardener Ken for the on-site help.
UPDATE 12/19/2003: Thanks, again, to gardener Ken and to the facilities mgmt.
UPDATE 4/30/2009: Once again, landscaper Ken has stepped up to help Es Effo. Thanks so much!
UPDATE 6/26/2009: Thanks Officer Java and Jacky the bomb dog.
