Thanks for the info, tazz. Glad to hear we should be able to get up there. The plan before he bought the Winnebago was to motel it in Buckley the night before the trip, have an early breakfast and be heading up the road by 8:00 AM at the latest. Will probably stick with that, but I guess we have options now.
My friend says he is officially retired now that he has a Winnebago. He calls it a "chick magnet".
