GS Giant friend Randy Owens of Clovis, CA, recommended the Airhead rally as a launch for my travels to the East. I spoke to organizer John Covington moments ago and he has 75 people RSVP already.
Will leave Uncle Fred's in Cupertino on Wednesday to Randy's place. He and I will travel Thursday South and then over the mountains past Lake Isabella and on to DV. Will report back with details as they evolve.
Then will head to TX per the map posted earlier, getting a one-day head start. Everything is pending good weather, which looks positive for now.
