Does anyone have any experience with the Caltrain bike lockers?

I'm commuting to Palo Alto and am leaving my bike at the Caltrain station. After someone tried to steal my bike last week I'm thinking about renting a bike locker. Does anyone have any experience with these lockers? I can't find any reviews of them one way or another online. I'm a little worried that if I mail them a check for $58 I'll just never hear from them again. [more inside]

Short getaway options 2-3 hours (driving only) from the South Bay Area?

My partner and I (30s, no kids, both geeky/arty introverts) have a couple vacation days coming up. We'd like to take a short, low-hassle overnight trip somewhere, but we've done the Monterey thing multiple times, we don't want to go to San Francisco, and we aren't really into wine tasting. What else can we do that doesn't require a ton of advance planning or more than around 3 hours sitting in the car? [more inside]

Truckin' to Truckee; what to do, where to eat?

We'll be RV camping for one week in Truckee and will spend some time at Lake Tahoe with our kayaks, we're also bringing along some dual sport motorcycles (200 & 230cc's). We'll be attending a concert in Stateline one evening as well but what's fun to do with the rest of our time there in Truckee and where to go for good food when we don't feel like cooking?
