SOC travel/caravan info

I am driving to SOC from Minneapolis, via Des Moines. I'm leaving Weds. afternoon, probably crashing Weds. night at my brother's place in Omaha, and hitting the road from Omaha 6 or 7 am Thursday -- looking at a mid-afternoon Thursday arrival.

Anyone driving I-80 west on Thursday morning looking for some Saab-ish company?

I'll be 2 hours behind you on I-80 Thursday morning, leaving from Des Moines that morning.

I made it from Santa Monica to Copper yesterday in ~18, including sitting in traffic on the 91 for 45 mins, and on 15 for an hour.

Best,
Drew
