Water Stops

I started thinking about all the rides we do, and one thing we always worry about ... availability of water. So I thought I would start off by listing a few key spots

Stevens Creek and Mt. Eden
Just before the top of Page Mill, on the left hand side as you climb to the top
Fire Station just north of Skyline and Hwy 9, on Skyline
Corner of 84 and 35, just outside the store

how about lat / lon coordinates?

i would have thought this was already done considering the number of cyclists / software people around here.. but it would be pretty simple to plot these using google maps, or something similar. or perhaps an interactive map?

fyi - both the Klimb and Krebs maps show water stops. I don't know how up-to-date they are.
