Getting to the STP start line
OK, I realize this is an absurd time to be trying to figure out things like this, but can anybody give me some suggestions on getting to the STP start line?
My wife tells me she is not even remotely open to staying overnight in Seattle and driving me to the start line at the crack of dawn. I've put off planning long enough that if I get a hotel the night before I'd be looking at a 10-mile or so ride with my overnight pack somehow in tow, which I suppose is doable, but I'm not loving the idea. I could drive myself up and park at the start line, but then I'd have to get myself back to Seattle by 3 PM Monday. This seems like the best option I've been able to come up with, but I'm hoping I've just overlooked some better alternative.
