I agree with Barry up to the date of the birth of Abraham. This date is nailed down to just about perfection.
Before then, I would be SUMMING the total years of the patriarchs.
*****WITH EXCEPTIONS***** which brings you back to more or less 10,000 BC. And IMO there are probably gaps in the genealogies.
BTW....the date of the Exodus is 1603 BC give or take a few years +/-. Much earlier than most Bible commentators say.
And the crossing occurred at the GULF OF AQABA. No doubt about it.
