I'm heading home for Thanksgiving and would like to leave either Tuesday or Wednesday of that week (so 11/26 or 27). I marked nonsmoker because while I do smoke occasionally (like once a month or so), I don't HAVE to stop and smoke. I will happily ride in a smoker's car as long as if you're smoking while driving, the window is open. I don't have to stop and pee every five minutes.
You want chatter and music and entertainment? cool. You want peace and quiet? I can do that too. I can't drive a stick though, so if you need me to take a turn, that's a factor.
I'm heading for Manteca, but I also have ties to San Francisco, so as long as you can get me to BART that'd work. Sacramento would also work if you just weren't coming down far enough.
