Nebraska all kidding aside. Take your time and arrive safely. We have all taken a liking to you and want to see you get here in one piece. Take breaks and stay rested. It's a long drive through some crummy weather.
We are all looking forward to meeting you and Mrs. Nebraska!
Oh yeah, double check that you have your passport. That's the only thing that can keep you off the boat once you get here!

Thanks everyone! Speed limit on I-80 in Nebraska is 75 mph. My speeding days were over 2 decades ago. Lol

Made it to Denver safe for the night. My bride drove 2 hours for me earlier this evening and that felt great just to relax in the passenger seat. Back at it in the morning

Fishy have a safe trip..... Kevin have a good flight. I will see you boys tomorrow. I should be pulling into San Diego around 11 or 12 on Saturday. When Nebraska gets in I am taking him to squidco and a few other tackle shops. Mrs. Nebraska can also come along..... we just might have to stop at a shoe store for her..... LOL

10 Knots = 11.5 MPH or 18.5 Km/hr

The general speed of the LR fleet, some go a touch faster, some slower and also depends on wind, currents, waves, etc for speed made good and factor in how itchy the captain is that moment--but generally just think 10knots.

Most distances discussed in relation to LR fishing are given in Nautical Miles (ex. 960'ish to Clarion, 480'ish to Rocks), so given distance divided by 10 will give you a good estimate of the hours of travel time required.

Did i read an "eh", and it wasn't even a Canadian. Must be catching on even down in Texas.

Well Nebraska, you are in for a treat... Soda. He'll take good care of you, but not sure if he known how to handle the Mrs. There are plenty of shops for the Mrs. to shop at near Squidco and the other tackle places. Give her the credit card.

The food at Point Loma Sea Food and Mitch's is good, and fresh seafood can't be any better. I know you guy are going out to dinner, so have fun.

Nebraska, you will see three landing all close together, Fisherman's, Point Loma and H& M. I am not sure which boats are in, but do take a stroll with your Mrs. to see some pretty vessels. Big bucks we can only dream about.

It sound like all you going are totally stoke and excited. I bet the line starts at 2 AM with no one really getting any sleep tonight.

So have fun. Relax and enjoy. Wish I were going.

For those of you on the trip that I know, and also for those I haven't had the opportunity to meet as of yet.......may all your wishes and dreams be fulfilled. Go out there and slay your personal best, and then beat that with your next fish. If you are obsessed with Moby Dick, may you be blessed with an encounter, but with happier results than Captain Ahab.

I will be following the reports on Intrepid's website.

Tight lines for everyone and fair winds, following seas.
