    Sometimes the freeway traffic flows like a river and you make great time; others times it seems like these trips take forever. Glad yours went well.

    13 hours to Anaheim seems very fast. How far south is Anaheim? 12.25 hours to Santa Cruz a few years ago was fast for me - a near record in my mind.

    Not a bad time at all.

    I've done the drive a few times since we've had the house here for a year and still lived down in Anaheim.

    My average was usually 15 - 17 hours but that was the speed limit and doing stops.

    I'm guessing she's going to Cal State Fullerton?

    south of l.a. a little bit,just that stretch in there can take a hour because of traffic,did not have that problem this time,i left about 3 30 in the morning and had very little traffic issues,and ran at a steady 80 for a while till i got to about valencia,and started to push alot harder,steady running at 95,and some areas on the way a bit higher than that ,only stopped for gas 3 times,it was one of my quickest drives down there or back i have ever done,and i have done that drive alot

    Glock I'm callin' you out. California speed limit = 15 mph over posted. See you know it's true. They wonder what planet us Oregonians are on with speeds so slow as to speed limit ourselves. :)

    15 MPH? You're giving them the benefit of the doubt. It was insane the short time I lived out there, when the freeways moved, they sure as **** moved. Sometimes I would find myself doing 80-90MPH WITH traffic.

    I hardly ever spent time on the Oregon freeways since most of the time I came out here to visit family, we'd only be on the freeway for a short while then onto 99W. I'm getting accustomed to the new slower paced speeds, again. hahaha.

    PS. You better speed up the next time I get behind you, my car needs to be going atleast 75 to function properly. :p

    17 hours Temecula (an hour south of Anaheim) to Seattle. And this was WITH having to do some emergency plastic surgery to my poor skid plate (my dad hit a raccoon and broke the skidplate on my very low car).

    And then I got stuck in horrible traffic, and it took me three hours to go from Seattle to Bellingham. Such is life.
