Myself and friend flew to (1o2) lake port, lampson for lunch. Lampson is an uncontrolled airport near clear lake, ca. Upon completing airplane checks and run-up checks, I obtained AWOS-2 information observing density altitude as '+3200 ft.' I announced and took runway 28 for a downwind departure back to gnossfield, ca. Wanting to use as much runway as possible, I inadvertently entered the displaced threshold end of runway 28 marked with yellow chevrons. I did not notice yellow chevrons painted on threshold end of runway. To prevent a recurrence, a note in the commercial airport directory would have been helpful during my flight planning.
