We hurriedly set up our gear and were ready to launch by 10:30. My goal was to take advantage of the Westerly flow and make a downwind dash to Mike's place (about 20 miles East) and then reassess and continue to reach I-5, if possible. I had not made the crossing to the range East of Santa Margarita, so this would be fun and new.
I snagged a ride, with a nice local guy named Scott, for the 5 miles to Hwy 58 and we picked Patrick up on the way. Jack soon picked us up on the Hwy. Thanks for the time behind the wheel Jack - we really appreciated it.
