You can count me in on driving/funding.  I think we could get up there
on the 6th if we left at the crack of dawn, or slightly before.

Sunrise in SF: 6:18
Sunset in Seattle: 20:37

I would suggest we leave SF at 5am sharp in order to avoid traffic.
We would get to Portland around 2:30-3:30pm which should also be less
of a traffic problem.
