Congrats on the beautiful rig!

What a great maiden voyage. I'm so envious!

There it is!! I've seen this one before. Beautiful coach in great settings! Glad you had a enjoyable circuitous route home from Nappannee.

PS how fast did you get her going down those mountains?

Re: downhill speed...it depends on who in the coach you are asking 👨👩. I follow the old truckers rule: never go down 'em faster than you went up 'em. After climbing up out of Kamloops, BC (me and the trucks in the slow lane), we took the scenic route down Canada 1 towards the U.S. Border in Sumas. I believe that it is called Fraiser Gorge. It is a long stretch of 6% to 7% down grade twisty road that is one lane in each direction. I was hugging the center line watching oncoming traffic. DW was "commenting" 😱 about the 2,000 foot drop to the bottom that was directly beneath her window. I am told that it was the scenic route. Not sure if we were able to fully enjoy the scenery 👺. I would do this route again in a heartbeat 👍👍👍👍👍

Hope that the corn got "combined" and that you are taking your beautiful Ventana out on a road trip.

I haven't forgotten that I owe you some cold beer for taking pics of our coach while it was still in production (our sincere thanks for doing this). We are heading out East next year. I can pay up as we drive northbound up the coast (May-June), or...maybe at the NKK rally in NM (September). Anyway, not to worry...it will be cold and fresh.
