Clifftall. Dread for not is right. No issues with this run. Hairy dropping down into Verde Mesa Valley, Climb out was not as drastic. Rig runs just fine up hill at 35-40 mph in second gear at 3000 rpm. Engine stays nice and cool. She really is a beast I guess. Just haven't made many mountain pass runs and was a bit nervous.

It's better to be a little nervous than cocky in my opinion. Glad it went ok.

Getting into this late, but I have another suggestion. Take Rt 87 out of East side of Phoenix through Payson and over the rim. Some of the prettiest driving country around. Take your time both up and down hills and do NOT drive this is the dark. Nothing worst then finding an Elk in front of you that is almost as big as your motor home.

We retired to Payson 12 years ago and best thing we ever did. Now we travel in the East US.

Via Sedona I hope. Great CG right in center of Sedona. Then the run to Flagstaff is a climbing twisting road, but I did it with a GMC Canyon pulling a 19' TT Great scenery.
