    These will be the pick up points:

    If you live on the interstate anywhere between any of these cities, yes - I will pick you up there. :wink:

    Things to bring:
    Anything good to eat or drink. AND A bottle of Green Apple Vodka for the hostess. :biggrin:

    What to wear:
    Anything, nothing, whatever... :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Barstow? What kind of crap is that? There is no interstate connecting Sacramento and Barstow anyway.

    I don't need an Interstate to get from Sacramento to Barstow. I know the back roads. It's just a hop, skip and a jump from south of Bakersfield to Barstow. And what kind of crap is your rudeness? Can't get on the bus if you're going to be rude. :grumpy:

    OOH, Pick me!! pick me!!

    I don't suppose you could stop at the grape vine? Its on the 5 between sacremento and barstow anyway, and much closer to me than either of those

    Ivan! Get our Flight Simulator back from your brother! I'm gonna be flyin' a Cyber LEER to our NEXT party (sorry omicron, the bus is already rented) and I really DO need to practice my landings... :rofl: Now, just WHERE is the other side of the world? We may be able to arrange something... :wink:

    Moonbear, how do you expect us to barbeque a boatload of steaks while zipping across the US in the RV? Sheesh... Nope. You'll just have to come all the way to Oregon for the barbeque. Ohio can wait. Your lab will live. :biggrin: (I just hope when you get back to Ohio your city isn't GONE!! :rofl: sorry... I'm a Pretenders fan... couldn't resist that one...

    Columbus, OH is roughly midway between Chicago and Roanoke, and very much on the way (94E to 65S to 70E gets you to Cols. from there it's 70E to 77S to 64E and you're nearly at V.Tech).

    Much appreciate a pick-up and drop-off...thanks.

    We don't need a jet, with Tsu at the wheel, this baby can exceed Mach 1.

    We will be making a slight detour to the French Alps to pick up humanino. :biggrin: (he's bringing Fauchon for everone and he has the good champagne.) :approve:

    Franz- can you get to Arvin? Or be at the I5/223 junction at the appropriate time? We're still waiting to hear from Tom about the actual date of the party, so time and dateplanning will commence when we have that info. :wink:

    Oh, well, now that I realize the bbq is AFTER the party at Tom's by all means, I'll just hitch the ride back to OR for the BBQ. Gokul and I can carpool back to OH together when the BBQ is over. :biggrin:

    Have you ever been on those back roads? Some of them you can't do more than fifty on if you wanted to. You'd be better off taking the I-5 south to the I-210 east, which will turn into the I-10, which will take you right to Phoenix. You'll still circumvent any traffic-laden part of the LA area. Any drive through all the deserts out here is pretty bad, though. If I were you, I'd forget Sac-town, head to San Fran instead, and take PCH down to LA. Much better drive, and well worth the extra day it would take you. Maybe you can even take a brief rest-stop in Monterrey or Big Sur. You can avoid Sac by taking the I-5 down to the 405 to the 80 into Oakland, then cross the bay bridge into Frisco. I know your husband at least is originally from these parts, so he should be able to testify to the superiority of the coastal drive over the central valley route. You don't want to drive past all the signs saying SoCal is stealing the farmer's water. They're just depressing.

    ya i know where arvin is, i know a few people out there, off the 5.

    As long as the legalness of the booze isn't an issue, its a deal.

    Oh, BABY!!! :biggrin: :biggrin:
    I really do like the good champagne!!! But what's up with the Alps? I thought he was in Virginia again. Ya think I'd go through Roanoke for just ANYONE?!?!? :surprised :rofl: This is my future cyber brother-in-law we're talking about!!

    Gokul, I thought you were closer to Chicago. Don't know why I might have thought that... But, absolutely, wherever you are, we'll pick you up. :wink:

    I wonder if Tom is going to have those hussies at this party?? :surprised :rofl: :rofl:

    I hope he's gonna have those hussies at the party other wise my long island iced teas will be in vain. And that would be sad.

    Look. loseyourname. l was born and raised in central and southern California. I know the roads. This is a PRETEND trip. OK? I am drivin' this bus and I can go as fast as I want on any kind of road I want. I'm avoiding as much congestion of large cities as I can. Get it? We're going to travel from the west coast to the east coast in a matter of HOURS online. If you want to plan a scenic tour of your area, rent your own bus and plan your own trip! But, quit trying to plan mine!! Now! Do ya wanna get on the damn bus or NOT??!?!?! :grumpy: :rofl: :rofl:
