First time I did it was a long time ago in a gasser - then again, in a gasser,
Now have done it a few times in the diesel, once with a bit of snow, yes I did slow way down.
IMHO Itt is a Favorite - love it headed North, just something about those long switchbacks - Just Colorado at it's Best.
For some reason we generally go south from Grand Lake or Steamboat on RT 9 - so have only done it from the north to the south a couple times.
So take it easy - enjoy the drive - enjoy the view - then remember to try to do it again. Think you will Enjoy It.
