As some of you know I am planning to move to California, well when the time comes (not until the summer though) I will be driving the long haul across this great country of ours.

While chatting with some people over on the snopes IRC channel some members suggested I stop over and say hey, have a beer, crash on the couch, whatever. So, the though occured to me, not only would making some stops and visiting people (both people I personally know and snopesters I don't) be interesting in itself, but it would also serve to break up the monotony of the drive some.

My trip is not planned yet, but generally its gonna be a line across the country from Virginia to Southern Cali, the primary roads (from just a basic look over the maps) are I64 toward St. Louis, I70 Through Kansas, I15 To Vegas.. I may also consider I40..

Really though those are just considerations and can easily be changed at this point, and while those of you who live in the northern reaches of Washington state or the southern reaches of Texas are out of luck on this trip at least, anybody who lives a little closer to center can certainly let me know and I'll see if its doable (and yes, I can be bought).

So.. If anybody is interested in meeting me on my epic trip (ok not "epic" but "long" [Smile] ) let me know.

Well, if you decide to take 80 across the good 'ol USA, take a stop up here in Northern California.

Well.. Don't have alot of details yet, still a while until I go (not until summer, possibly as late as August).

I'm going from central Virginia to Southern California, so just imagine a general line between the two and if your anywhere near that line (or even if your not) let me know and we'll see.. I don't mind going a little out of the way to meet somebody interesting, or find a place to stay the night, or do something fun, or what have you.. That said I do think those of you in Washington state are out, sorry KmCm [Smile]

I just figured I'd throw the idea out there so I could get an idea who lived where and who was interested.

If you wander a little bit south to pick up I-40, I'd be happy to say hello.

(Incidentally, my bro is in NoCal, so if I ever make it out there to visit him, we could hook up on the left coast at some point as well).

If you do take I-64 through Lexington, let me know. I'm just an hour north.

Well, depending on when your trip is, we'd be happy to meet up with you!

Granted, we're taking two weeks to go back "home" around the 4th of July, and I'll be in Philly visiting a friend of mine after that, but when you get organized, and make a decision on when you're coming this way, please tell me!
