Alan Wald wondered whether our designated driver departing from the north end of Pacifica heading south on Highway 1 would ever reach the Pumpkin Festival. "When will our D.D. cross the intersection at Highway 92 in Half Moon Bay?" Alan asked Riptide readers.

It was one helluva weekend. Hint: The smart money just stayed off the road. And one bit of bad news: A woman drowned at Gray Whale Cove.
