How sketchy was that yesterday! We got cought in the whiteout with a few motorcyclist. Really slippery & the 80 didn't want to stop with the camper behind it!!! Hope everyone got home safely... Awesome CM 2012, our 1st but definitely not our last. Wife gave the green light on building the 80!!!

Came up and down the tunnel in a white out and snow covering some spots. Dodge did great, 70 mph up and down with no problem except a slow car in he fast lane of course. Steve Crash was ahead an then behind me, sure he did just fine in that sweet 60.

Man, I had great weather when I drove home. Of course, I had to drive home after finishing E-hill on Saturday, so I was home at 2:30AM on saturday night/sunday morning.

You guys just had to drive SUPER late, that's all. ;)

Ironically we had great weather on the way out. We pulled in at 2am on Wednesday!!!

I think we passed you right after the tunnel. We were in our white lx450 pulling a pop-up. On the way up to the tunnel, my wife was ribbing me about how slow the cruiser was going. When we caught up to you just before the tunnel, I was all "look, we actually caught up to someone! see we're not the slowest ones out here!"

then we pulled around the side of you and I cracked up laughing when I saw it was another 80 :lmao: no wonder we caught up :rolleyes:

Yep, that was us. Thought that we were going backwards for a bit!!! Did you see that guy on the motorcycle fall. It was all about the same time. I tried to stop and help but slid right past him. As we slid past he stood up and picked his bike up so I'm assuming he was alright.

He was back sitting on it when we drove by and a guy in a pickup was backing up the hill to help him, I figured he was probably offering him a ride down below the freeze line. That would just suck!
