No curve signs, except for the one where something might have gone off the mountain.

The yellow mph signs are mere suggestions. Except the 5mph ones. That one means business.

^ THAT.
Thanks for posting, I looked for it and didn't find it.
That was the only place with signs on the road. What did we pass, maybe 5 cars in a half hour or more of driving?

That's Elijay. If you went down the gravel road to your back, you'd be treated to this view.

122?

Planning on being there. If I have my way I'll be in my 16v mk1 gti. I have absolutely zero desire to drive my wagon up there and the 242 isn't in line to be operational any time soon.

I'm starting a collection for a set of air shocks for Jared's V70.
He had to get a running start to make it up to the pavement from the gravel driveway leading down to the lodge because all the weight was on the rear tires.

I had to google that. For a minute I thought perhaps I'd passed out and shenanigans had ensued at one of the prior MM's, but I'm normally pretty good about getting to the bunk and then keeping folks awake.

Put me down on the list too. Meredith may join as well, she is a little up in the air since this is two weeks before our wedding.

Now to decide what color car to bring...

I got a bunch of my friends to start watching it. Jared Keeso is pretty talented as a writer and actor.
