For those coming from the Bay area, do you have an idea of the path and days you are driving?
Coming from WA, I'm planning on overnighting in SLC and DEN arriving in KC on a three day drive. It would be fun to gather up others on the way and those two places seem like a natural (they each have smart centers) and the drives are very do-able.
I suppose if you have the luxury of time to take more time than that, like a week each way... well I wish I was you!
Looking at the map, it appears it will take a Vancouverite or Calgarian to knock Ross off of the longest-drive pedestal.
My son and I want to venture out in my car to the nationals too. We are in Stockton but right now it will depend on if he can get off work. My husband and I have taken my car to Reno and also to Oregon already.... Love my lil Skate
