Thanks, Ray. You confirmed what I was thinking. We are going 80. You had sound advice. Thanks!

God bless,

NJD -

History repeats: You win the contest again! Actually, I only spelled it "Alfred" so nobody would think me a poor speller (and if you believe that, I have this great land in Florida... Smiley)

We are back over Donner pass. Thank you all for your suggestions, and tips.

We did have to chain up, but it wasn't a big deal (especially for being our first time to chain up). The roads weren't a big deal either. If they wouldn't have had chain control, we wouldn't have chained up, but what can you say Grin. We just chained up the out dual...

So thanks again, gents. I now know that chaining up isn't a problem. In the future? Places where chains are required, we will do it anyways. Probably no more routes around snow. Now that we know chains aren't a big deal to install...we will just slap them on in the future, no big deal.

God bless,

John

Next time you come thru Fresno, I can teach you how to hang those chains and be rolling again in 10 minutes!

Then you can impress the charter drivers!

Thanks, RJ. I figure next time we should be even faster. It took us 15 minutes this time. I have no doubt that next time we can be rolling a lot faster, because we now know how to do it. We hadn't had time to even do a practice run, before, so not to bad for the first time.

We do want to stop by and see you sometime. Mostly to see whether we can beg some coaching out of you. I know there is always ways we can improve.

God bless,

John
