1) About how long would it take to drive from Malibu to Everett, Washington? Two men, spelling each other on the driving, newish American-made truck, minimal stops for food/gas/bathroom, leaving Malibu around 5AM, taking the fastest possible route. Also, this is assuming that the fictional city of Cascade (from the show The Sentinel) is being put in the place of Everett; it seems to make sense but it can be changed if I've missed something that would make that impossible.
2) A character (original) has a dog that is half Black Lab, half wolf. What would it look like?
