I was going to try to get enough time off to do a few days of H&B, but it was a stretch. My replacement (I asked to be replaced almost a year ago) is not going to start as soon as I thought. He is coming from Texas to be interviewed Monday. I was looking forward to taking September off after training him a bit. I am going to work from home when I work again.
If you plan to get out this way Brian, I'm looking for an excuse to go somewhere, but I can only go about 300 miles a day.
I was a complete numb skull for not looking at that when I decided to do a California sierra and coastal run in 2008. I remember approaching Reno from the Nevada side as the sun was setting and thinking.... what's the fog? I didn't see anything in NorCal the entire time I was tooling around. Well, I did see flames on the 101. Man, that was a lot of fire that year and took a lot of the sight seeing / fun out of the ride.
Anyway... good call on that!
I'll be over on the west side of Idaho for a couple weeks in advance so will keep an eye on the local reports.
