    I live in Jacksonville NC and going to be headed to CA as well.   We could hook up and make the ride together.

    That looks like a good plan but I want to arrive in Ontario on the 13th.   Can you leave on the 8th of May?

      I have volunteered to be part of the staging team and have meeting that I will need to attend so I will need to check in on the 13th.   I could leave on the 9th but we would have to push the daily miles out to over 600 per day.
