That's going to be difficult. Bakersfield is centrally located smack dab
in the middle of southern and northern California, bisected by I5, but
it's still effectively the middle of nowhere. Even if you were able to
make it up or down there, you wouldn't want to go. It's like a gulag.

Ok, it's not that bad, but no one goes to Bakersfield unless forced by
some reason.
