We made it.

Phew. What a ride. Mountain passes almost got the best of us. As Derek D always said, “Slow and steady wins the race.” I took those words to new heights with our rig situation. The Ryder was bogging pretty good up those hills. I had him filled to the brim with my gear and, for extra drama, we had “Big S” in tow on the car carrier. The whole enterprise was quite a setup. Coming out of the SoCal wasteland, as you climb and drop into the “valley” was the first inkling things might get a little crazy when elevation would come into play.
