I love to fly & drive. If I weren't so busy (and had a dealers tag), I'd help you. Frankly, you should grasp this opportunity to see our large homeland. Seattle to Pompano is a mere 3,300 miles. You can fly to Fort Lauderdale on Alaska Air for $500-600 one way, $600 for return fuel and $480 for hotels. This leaves you $320 for food and cocktails. See the Rockies...See DENNIS. Take a picture so we can see the man.

Yes driving across the USA is the tops.
I have done it four times in commercial vehicles so far, twice in train (a UK built Railbus ) North South-- South North (ultimately to Vic's neck of the woods) and West East/ East West driving a double decker 85 seater coach PLUS

Twice in car west/east east west and once South North.
That trip from New Orleans to Boston Mass almost got me into fist fight at a truck stop in Mississippi.
In that part of the world it seems they are still fighting the Civil War !!!
The Massachusetts license plate suggested I was a goddamn Yankee and that fancy Yankee accent was enough to make these truckers think I was hitten' upon & about to carry off "Our Daisy" behind the counter to more civilized parts of the USA. (Actually she was quite looker, a stunner in fact !). ( If I had dallied for while I might have!)!
This Cars clip always reminds me of one trip Miami to Hayweird Ca!

Lovely USA!

You could always stop at Doctor A's in South Carolina for a quick check before heading west to Lindens in Colorado if there were any issues, or even if there were not. Good insurance and peace of mind is worth a little going out of your way. You can't go wrong with either of them.

I just wish we had someone in the San Diego area comparable. Happy Sprintering!

If I hadn't just got back from two N-S transits of the continent, I'd volunteer the fly/drive. Worth it to see Andy and Dennis again.

Oh, and the landscape, too.

150K miles in 10 summers. Fuel, filters, oil, tires, bulbs, batteries, front brakes, serp belt and tensioner, upper charge air hose, Cyl 3 failing GP.
Accompanied and assisted by "Cheeto", a 2019 Rad Powerbikes Rad City Stepthrough.

Absent this forum, I'd never have bought a Sprinter.
