What's the best way to go Dan? Been 25+ years since I've been down that way. Not sure on the time though. David, Tommy and whoever else are suppose to be leaving Portland around 2am or so. And I plan on hooking up with them as they pass through my town about 3 hours later.

Well, from Portland to Sacramento, the 5 and 99 are one. Then split in south Sacramento and remain separated until the south side of Bakersfield. Stockton is 45 minutes south of Sacramento. I recommend you guys stay on 5 until Lathrop which is 15 minutes south of Stockton. Then you can take HWY 120 east to 99 south.

Word of caution for the lowered trucks! STAY IN THE FAR LEFT LANE through Stockton until you get to HWY 4. The center and right lanes will make your truck bottom out badly and has been known to bend big wheels.

Plans are set for me. Friday morning it is. I know you guys up in PDX are leaving early, and Jay will be down here in my neck of the woods already. How about we meet up for breakfast at the Creekside Restaurant at the Seven feathers Truck and Travel Center at Exit 99 in Canyonville. It's right off the freeway. Easy off / easy on.

I'll be driving back up to Oregon early Sunday morning. My brother in law has to catch a flight to Seattle that night. And I live about 3 hours south of PDX.

That spot seems perfect to meet up.

In my opinion, I would rather NOT stop to eat. If you guys want to meet up a little earlier to catch a bite and all thats cool. I would rather stop for 10-15 minutes and grab you guys and leave.. rather than sitting for 1-2hrs to eat.

I just say this because the last time we went down.. we left at 2am and didnt get to San Fran until about 1:30. That was with rest room breaks and gas. as it is.. if we do the same thing we will be arriving into fresno about 3-4pm depending on how many gas and bathroom stops we do. if we add that extra 2 hours onto the trip.. it will be 5-6 before we arrive.

I would like to do what we did last time. Just bring snacks or sandwiches with us.. only stop for gas or bathroom.. and when we get to fresno, find somewhere to eat.

thats just my 2cents

Yeah I had read somewhere where you had already posted you were leaving Thursday. Anyway, if you have any problems when you get down my way (Roseburg/Winston), hit me up and I'll see what I can do to help. I'm also coming back sometime on Sunday. I'll PM you my cell if you want it.
