    MODIS is cool -- it's a sensor on a polar...

    There shouldn't be any problem going north from SF through the Redwoods and up from a fire situation -- it it stands now.

    The major road closures were in the higher, more wilderness areas...

    A couple of comments.

    For my money, the best scenery around on the drive is in two locations which offer radically different scenery options. But if you want to go through Seattle, this can be a bit challenging. So...

    Car shows? Are you into exotics or classics or??

    If you're pushing out from SF mid morning on the 13th, and fly out of LA noonish on the 15th you'll need to make some tracks. Lots of things to see, but you may end up short on time to visit places....

    Common Sense Stuff

    Driving in the dessert in August means a bunch of common sense things, I think

    First of all, SF to Eureka is about 2/3rds of a day's drive -- depending upon where you start in the Bay area. If you're heading...

    What time do you want to start in the morning?

    Hi QuirkySue,

    From Redding to Monterey is about 5 hours drive via freeways. If you're an early riser, and don't do a lot of stops you could make it to Monterey for for lunch. That would...
