That's cool Rob. I couldn't resist. We drive to Steamboat and SLC a couple times every winter to ski. Too many guys and too much gear to fly on a crop duster. Biggest plane we have access to that isn't commercial only seats 6 and we take two fully loaded Suburbans to take 6 people. Lash the wheel and take a nap in Nebraska cause there is nothing to hit. Same with far eastern Co.

Still in the planning stages here, Jim. I think both routes have fairly long stretches of nothing but the desert point is well made.

Made the trip from L.A. to Fort Worth a couple of months ago. The thing that I think about this time of year is the more north you go, the weirder the weather gets. Which ever way you go, make sure you have a credit card for discretionary spending and such...

Be careful about when you try to traverse L A , traffic can be very very bad during commute hours. The drive from Sacramento to LA is pretty boring. The coast drive highway one can be pretty slow but scenic. You can bypass L A by cutting across from Bakersfield to Barstow pick up the 40 east.

Prefit the 928 tow hook to the front right bumper before leaving.
Have jack and full size spare, wrench and any lug lock tool.
Research how to lift it and how to "prelift it" to keep from ripping off the spoiler during a flatbed load.
Check your AAA membership.

Oh, and have fun!

In Vegas if you deviate north of 40. Could go for a beer...seems like you'd be passing through on the weekend.
I-40 isn't too bad. Plenty of old route 66 stuff to see, space museum, northern hemisphere's largest cross, etc. Just took it from OK City to Vegas last month. Let me know if you are stopping through Vegas.
I used to live in Sterling and Manassas.

BTW, what did you buy? I've been away for a while.
