I said as much in my other post. I appreciate the concern, but this is well
thought out. I have some health challenges and I do not know If I can do a
trip like this again, my Doc today said yes I will, but that said this is a
great time to be driving 395 and 1 or 101 coming home. I want to avoid
large trucks and yutzes. and heat. I will be in the North Bay area for
three or four nights and then home up the coast. It can take two or three
days if need be. I teach one class online, All I need is interent to log in
and grade their work.
Any route is an adventure in these cars,fortunately I can fix or at least
diagnose almost any problem and my AAA will tow me up to 200 miles. see you
all there
