Glad you and the Mrs.are okay.
Nope, even though it was VERY close on the right front corner. Too close for my liking. The Monaco S-Series chassis held true with the sudden lane change but my real concern was the 30 foot trailer I was towing. That hung in behind my coach like a glove. I am really impressed with this chassis.

The second Moose stayed at the edge of the roadside. If it hadn't chances are I would have hit that one for sure.

Later in the trip we had a grizzly bear and her cub meander across the road in front of us but I saw that from a safe distance which gave me plenty of time to slow down.

I love the scream. Did that help you miss it?



Seriously, good driving there.

I had all of my right foot on the air brakes trying to stop but with 48,000 lbs rolling at 55 mph it's takes a lot to stop that beast.

Well, as for the scream, it helped me focus more as to what I needed to do to prevent a collision with the Moose. Thank God there were no vehicles coming from the other direction. On most vast stretches of road in Alaska vehicles are rare except for around the two major cities, Anchorage and Fairbanks. I've had Moose encounters in both of those cities so you have to be aware everywhere you travel up there.

I remember on one return trip from Alaska where we were in the higher altitudes of northern British Columbia and it was snowing but not accumulating on the road. However, a salt truck had just passed us going the opposite direction. About 5 miles down the road we come around a bend in the road and there are 6-8 Caribou standing in the middle of the road licking the salt up from the road. I stopped and they had no incentive to move for me. So I waited some and after about 5 minutes I started to inch my way toward the herd. They split up to the each side of the road and once I got by they headed back to the road to resume licking up the salt.

I refer to DW as the DQ of the family. Her screaming and reactions are more distracting than to whatever she is reacting. I've threatened on more than on occasion to make her ride in back of 'Da Beast. Oh, sorry, DQ means Drama Queen and she drives me nuts with it. As far as driving me nuts, she says it's only a short trip.

Ditto, on the very good driving on your part.

Just recently found this thread and it's become one of my favorites.

These are shots from yesterday's trip west out of Denver on I 70. Got to be one of the most scenic freeway drives in the country.
