It would be nice to cruise down to Cali, but 18 hour non-stop maybe a killer.

My son and I left April 30 and stopped at Redding on the first day and then pushed all the way into Pasadena (my brother's place) the next day. Nice comfortable ride. Some sections of roads in Washington and Portland were a bit rough ....so we had to drive between the ruts to reduce the road noise.

Bimmerfest was great !...lots of high end models and my 330Ci just did not cut it ... ;(

On Sunday we drove down to San Diego to see the air races ....very exciting to see the small planes ripping around the pylons...

The ride back was a bit faster as we got a sense of where the speed traps may be located and as we got our confidence up in pushing the speed. Stopped at Eugene , OR and then home the next day.

Got searched at the border as they did not quite believe my story that I drove all the way down just to attend a one day event.,..they only looked under the dash board ..I think they were looking for small firearms ??..which I had none of course !!

All in all it was just great and I am planning to go back next year....
