Road Trip 2006, CA to VA to MS

So me and a buddy of mine (who rides a zx-6) are going to be making a cross country trip from San Diego to Norfolk then down to Pascagoula, MS. Reason for the road trip, uncle sam pays for more than you think, cause we are transferring to MS and first have to go to school in VA.

Reason for this thread is to see if anyone wants to meet up on our stops. Our schedule will be kinda like this:

July 15-16: Sacremento, CA

July 17-22 Colorado Springs, CO

July 24 Norfolk, VA

July 26-Aug 11 Wallops Island, MD (40 miles south of Salisbury, 50 miles north of Norfolk)

So if anyone lives in these areas let me know so we can ride some new areas and meet some new people.

Oh yeah, we are driving my buddies brand new fully loaded silverado with the bikes in the bed.


And as far as coast to coast goes, get this:

Aug 05: Drove a 16' Penske truck from Jacksonville, FL to San Diego in 42 hours. Rented a car and drove to Las Vegas, then to Flagstaff, then flew to Colorado Springs and flew back to Jacksonville. Got in my car and drove from JAX to Wallops Island, MD, went to school for 3 weeks, then drove from Wallops to Garden City, KS in 24hrs straight, slept at moms house and drove to San Diego in 17 hrs. All of this not 2 months after I got back from a 6 month deployment to the Mediterrainian, in which I left for deployment 2 weeks before my daughter was born, yeah she was 5 months old when i first saw her!

Now I get to do it all over again, while my wife and daughter are living in San Diego.
