Default Eisenhower tunnel

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.
