Default Going On A Trip

My dad and I are going on a trip next week out west. Hes been looking forward to it so I agreed to go. We are renting a Grand Marquis, joy, slow as he** I know. How do you think it'll do climbing a 14,200 mountian. Am I sighning my death warrent or will it make it?

Not all that bad in the power department, and decent torque. Ultra-comfy though! Excellent cars for long distance driving. Have fun!

In Corvallis, just about right between Eugene and Salem. Not far off I-5. WCBF is a mere 10 miles from here again this year.

Now THAT would be cool. If you come up I-5 at any point, drop me a line. I'll meet any member, any time. Even if it'* only for 10 minutes. We got good people here, and I'm determined to keep proving it to myself by meeting as many as possible.

Sweet goal. I'd like to meet as many members as posible in person too. Who sits behind the screen?
