    I assume Cliffy is staying at his 'rents house Friday night through Saturday? So, I dont think he will be able to convoy from Tucson either.

    Hmm... Well if all else fails I'll just make the trek anyway because this is definitely going to be epic.

    It should be more than enough time. Even at 75 mph it takes at most 1.5hr (excluding freeway closure or such) to get to my dads' old house in Ahwatukee. That's an extra 1hr+ to get through Phoenix metro on a saturday morning... should be absolutely no problem :D

    Also note the speed cameras on the freeways in phoenix metro are now off. I'm not saying that to speed, but there's no need to panic when you see them. Also pending no construction, the speeds were bumped from 55 to 65 on all of I-10. I think I-17 might still be 55 though, can't remember for sure.

    Unless more Tucsonans decide to convoy with you three, it might just be the three of you heading up North to meet the larger group

    I don't care to lead us up fella's. I'm just gonna follow my Garmin.

    We can also add one more truck as of now. Apodoca in a 08 dbl cab silver. Still trying to recruit more from T-Town.
