If these are just hills, my little MB powered truck might just be a little underpowered. I'll get there, might take a little longer

Yeah, you'll find some real 'hills' if you're commin up I-5 into Oregon.

If going Hwy 101, won't be as bad and more scenic too.

Going to head up 101, have always heard the scenery is to die for.

Garry, I swear the pics are coming. Got over 600 to load when I find a good wifi connection. My 3g phone would take days
Sitting on pacific coast watching it rain right now, hoping for better traveling weather
Oh yeah Garry, I found another playground that puts the dragon to shame, 31 miles and I think I saw one straight stretch that was maybe 100 yards long. Problem is it's in California but it was a blast

Yeah, Jeff and I and a couple others ran it last year when we were in P.F. for the week, we didn't play around either, our old trucks really looked great doing the switch-backs.
