. Its a nice site w/ a list of runs for each state with some beta.. From here you should be able to get your trip planned out fairly well. With EF and google maps you should be able find every thing pretty well. Like tango says, i would stay away from IV's till you gain some more experience. Not saying you can't handle it but, the consequences of a swim can be brutal real quick. II's are like the Guadeloupe which is fine for a booze cruise. Try and stick with some mild III's. You'll have fun and make it to your destination.
When you get up around the Denver area send me a PM. I'll do my best to hook up and make some runs. We can also shoot the shit about H-Town. Stop by Popasito's and grab me some taco's al carbon or some Goode Company BBQ if your around 59 and Kirby.
