I think the final discussion comes to the driver taking into account, mechanical condition of your coach, weather, traffic conditions, environment obstacles (hills, strong cross winds), man made obstacles (low bridges, weight restrictions), services, and financial considerations weighed with your safety in mind. If you driver has a confidence level and has a history of driving your coach in varies terrains, I would respect his decision and enjoy the ride.

If my wife was uncomfortable with the route - then I would adjust the route. Life is too short to fight over the small stuff.

IF the DH does not want to, then don't. The journey is by both to enjoy.

If you don't want to drive it in your RV be sure to go over it in your toad. Just a few miles on the other side of the pass(10 or 15) I think is a water fall called North Clear Creek Falls. About a half mile off the main road and worth the time.

Before the Beetles killed most of the trees this was one of the most beautiful drives in the country in my opinion and it is still very impressive.

If you are there now you should be seeing some beautiful fall colors.

"If Jimmy cracks corn and nobody cares then why does he keep doing it?"

Believe it or not I used to work for Jimmy cracking Corn (Jim Carry in fact though not the famous one, his partner was Al Dollar. Cash and carry)

He sold it to Purena for dog chow among others (Actually that was a mix of Corn and Soy beans to Purena_


Home is where I park it.
