But, I have to be home around the 8th to get stuff ready for Barbers, so that gives me about 2 weeks to cover almost 3k miles.

doable, but if I have any major problems, I'll have to buy/rent a truck/van & haul ass on home.

My plan is to head out tomorrow morning, as I really need a day off to do a little maintenence on the bike, and have a short break.
Im pretty worn out.

So, east from Oakland, (Im at Petefromberkely's house) thru Yosemite (I havent been there) down thru death valley to Vegas, then east from there.

I see on the map there is the 9k foot tioga pass in yosemite, anyone done that? thats a bit high, and has me a little worried.

I think that will be my only really big mountains to go over.

Im open to suggestions......

Thanks, Doug

Oh, and they are already planning another cannonball in 2 years, I told em to sign me up.

Next time, I'm gonna build a chopper
congrats doug.

just don't stop at the top and it's downhill from there.
there is some great food at the restaurant at the gas station on the other side in lee vining.

see you in 2 yrs.
