23 hour drive. Google says I can bike it in 6 days. I don't think Google knows me very well

He still may see a lot of sand though I think. Or perhaps not; not sure.

11 h 9 min (749 miles)

Fastest route, the usual traffic
Your destination is in a different time zone.

Dang. You are really quite much farther away than I suspected.
A flight will take about two hours. I will pick you up at the airport.

As tempting as this is, I think 2600 miles one way is a bit further than I'm willing to travel for a meetup.

Seven hours. Not a bad drive and I could hit NOLA on the way back. This has potential.

Rev, I'm not going to be looking for you at the airport, since I'm sure you will want to just bike it instead.

Fine then. When I pick you up at the airport, you can choose whose lap you sit on.
