Hi. It's true! A vehicle coming to cal will be required to prove the title is clear, and a smog check is also required. The military was caught off guard some time back with this requirement, and a smog check was required for all vehicles requesting access to there facilities. All of this is a legal way of increasing the "TAX" requirements on vehicles.
Hi. Two things to keep an eye on. First: A clean FREE flow radiator, and new, clean coolant. Second: A clean an adjusted transmission, and clean new fluid. Plus extra fan-belts. Check air in all tires prior to the(b-4 5:30 am) first move of the day.
Hi. Why not GO east over a I-5 by-pass route, and jump over to I-5 before you get to S.F. Or try Cal S/R 99 which will put you closer to stackton which is still east of I-5. I came down from Wa.,Or. in Sep. / Oct. 2015. WATCH OUT FOR BAD WEATHER.
Hi. Are you serious? Question: Have you given a REAL good look into what you will need just to start a coast to cast trip. Especially the first run with a NEW, un-tested set-up. This year with an EL NINO weather pattern are shaping up out west.
