we are going to be in san fran oct 14,15 & 16 and i was hoping to visit my great uncle (92 y.o.) in carmichael on sunday the 15th. is this doable? he tells me traffic is a nightmare so i am fearful we will spend the day in the car. any info you can give me about the best way to get there, etc. that would be so helpful! i'd really like to see him being that we've never met since i've never been to CA before.
