Sounds like you are in the transport business. If you have room, I would love to take you up on it. Same as last year, plastic container with a bunch of astro and camping junk and my rocker box. I haven't solidified the plan yet but I will give you a call (if your cell # hasn't changed in the last couple years). I do have to ask you "Red or White Wine?". Oh yeah, and, Do you know what day you are leaving?
The decision to go to the bay area is based upon a ride with my astro buddy, Dave Sopchak. He needs to transport his stuff and camping gear for both of us so both flying to Reno (a great idea, by the way) is not in the cards. It's a nice drive and cuts a day off the trip at each end for me (work looms large).
I'll give you a ring.
