Around March 12 might work out well. I'm skiing in Tahoe the first week of March. Are you planning on leaving from Roseville then? Are you riding your bikes from Roseville south? If I ride my bike south from Camas, WA (basically Portland, OR), I'd probably keep my Anakees on until San Diego and then want to switch to TKC's for south of the border. I'm definitely interested if I can work out my schedule to fit.
