    I'll probably take the route you mapped out to BYOB. I've got to be home by 4:00 on Sunday, so it will probably be 81 and 64 on Sunday.

    We could meet for breakfast or lunch on the road. Let's figure out a departure time closer to the date.

    Leaving Friday morning. Don't know what my plans are yet. I know I'd like to head through Breaks Interstate Park, other than that I'm open.

    Could do Breaks on the way back :dunno
