      I live in Virginia Beach, planning on departing either the afternoon of the 9th or early on the 10th, planning on rolling into Ontario NLT mid-day on the 14th… anyone else in the area down for coming along?

      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.
