Up a little after 6 a.m., we were on the road by 6:45 a.m. heading back to Sacramento. Within an hour, we were back in the Central Valley. Along with two dozen other people, we made a stop at a Starbucks just off the Grapevine. We stopped again for gas at Santa Nella. We were back in Sacramento about 12:05 p.m.
After taking more than 7 1/2 hours to get there on Thursday, it took us 5 hours and 20 minutes to get home. Taking out the two short stops, the driving time was about 4 hours and 50 minutes.
