here is what I am thinking...
I will be leaving Los Angeles on Thursday morning early. Plan to drive a bit of highway 1. will go through San Francisco and head north on the 5 until I get to Portland. I guesstimage getting to Portland by Friday morning.
How does that fit everyone elses schedules and routes?

I am trying to get my Brat ready for the meet, and will probably run up 395 with some others.
Yeah JB, we'll coordinate something...going over to the 5 puts us more than 100 miles out of our way.

so are you guys comin' through bend?
I looked at a couple of possible routes and IIRC, Bend was along the way:) .

I think coordinationg actual meeting and travel days/times will be a more complicated issue.

I talked to Jeremy (subieman) the other day and he might be going up there that Friday. I don't know whats the easiest way up there, I'll end up following somebody who knows the route better. Eh, I'm a follower!
I guess give me a day and a time you are leaving and I can always divert my route to meet up with you in Reno. It's 7 hours to Reno so if I still hold to my plan to leave on Thursday it should be ok.

For those of you leaving From Reno, you can take 395 north and make it to highway 97 which should lead to Hood River: http://wcss.usmb.net...s/Reno2wcss.htm
S'ko, and anyone else leaving from the sacramento area or south of there, have 2 options. We could hightail it on I-5 to Portland, then head east on 84 to Hood River. Or, we could take I-5 to Weed, and take US-97 east and meet up with the Nevada group in Klamath Falls.
Sacramento to Portland to Hood River: http://wcss.usmb.net/maps/sac2wcss.htm
Sacramento to Weed to Hood River:
The meet would look something like this:
As of this moment, im not sure which route im leaning more toward. Taking US97 will only add another hour to the trip. But if I end up leaving late at night, i might just take I5 to save time and B-line it to the show.

Now I guess the only thing left to coordinate is the time to meet/travel. I'm looking at being gone from home Thursday thru Monday (so as not to be in a big hurry while travelling in a 22 year old car:-\ )
My 2 bucks

Use vacation days (last 2) on Friday and Monday, and have Saturday and Sunday as my regular weekend. That'd give me from Thursday night until Monday afternoon to play
If we plan on meeting on hwy97, then we have to collaborate our times. I believe we could make it to the 97/395 split before you guys, given we'll be on I-5. But its still a good 4 to 5 hours to weed, then another hour or so to the Klammath Falls meet. How many other people are comming from the bay area and southern california?
Posted 13 July 2004 - 08:47 AM
395 doesn't go to Klamath, but I think I know what you mean..sounds like a good meeting place, then continue to Bend.
Anyone know Klamath Falls well enough to recommend a meeting place in town?

There was a guy in Pismo Beach that mentioned he was coming,
Subaru Junkie, per mapquest it will take roughly 6 hours for me to get to you.
I should be able to get to you in one tank of gas. Are you leaving Thursday night? Also do you have a little motorola walk-about things? Would be good to communicate while traveling. I have two people traveling with me. It I take the BRAT it will be three drivers to two vehicles.
