I am jealous!  We spent a week every year 30 miles north of Pagosa Springs, Co.   We would fly fish the streams up there.  The weather is so nice this time of year.  Anyway, how was did the bus do on the climbs?  I have a 6v92 as well and I am certainly going to have to learn how to climb them before too long.

I've climbed Wolf Creek Pass at least a dozen times in my Eagle.  It's 1st gear all the way up and about 22~25mph for me.  The descent eastbound is pretty easy.  I don't like the westbound descent, however.  I have to use lots of brakes on that one and stop at the switchback to cool them off.  The retarder really heats up on the west descent.  I disconnect the towed when I descend to the west and let my wife drive it down.  It's one less thing the coach has to keep slowed down.
