Talk about fuel prices etc here, keep the other thread for reports so you don't have to trawl through to find the latest news

Make sure you go to this new thread for the reports from the trip
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...1625719&page=2

Put general planning chit-chat on this thread, and actual reports on the other one.

PS Steve the transport was perfect!

Wednesday at Weldon is looking good. How fast can you make up there?

...Partly cloudy in the morning, then clear. High of 77F. Winds from the West at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 40 mph shifting to the North in the afternoon. Breezy.

That was the idea!

See 1000mph's post following, see it works.

I will try and get there as fast as I can. I may get stuck in Bakersfield with no way out
