Yes, tonight is particularly lovely.

I was planning on driving to CA in July, wonder if I could make the trip twice in one summer. Maybe flying is the best option. Hmmm.

Awesome, finally one we can make it to. We even have a place to stay in Portland, friends for my wife to hang out with if she gets bored.

Lookout east coast, mid west and flyover, we can put up the numbers too. After this, TDI fest will have to alternate coast to coast.

Looking forward to it--I should organize a caravan meeting up in SLC, although I might have to head out a few days early....

Last year we drove just over 50,000 miles, back and forth across the country a few times and hitting all the lower 48 states. My point? Avoid the drive through Nebraska! (Sorry NE crowd!). My favorite route is the middle route through Denver and I-70, US-6 up to SLC, then I-15 and I-84 all the way to Portland.

Looking forward to it. So many things to do in Portland, and of course the drive through the gorge:

What did Lewis (or Clark?) say after traipsing through that western wasteland? "Ocean at last! Oh the joy!"
I can understand the enthusiasm of finally getting a change from the monotonous scenery they had been crossing for months.

Zippy's "NE" is in reference to New England or North East (US), not Nebraska. She might not admit it, but she's looking for validation, by proxy, of her choice to move away from the Hub of the Universe. If she can get others to make the same mistake she made, that will somehow make her error less 'wrong' because someone else has also done it.
Gaawd, I detest psychology!

I can't handle the 4 days of vacation I'd need to take just for driving (assuming I had a co-driver or two and never stopped).
If I can make it at all, I'll be flying.
