    Went with the NWFJCC on a pre-run. 3 vehicles, got on trail a bit before 10. We got through University FP and a part of Cedar Tree before it started looking like the snow was going to pick up too much

    For any of you going up, be prepared. Yes, that trailer is connected to that Dodge.

    You can't see it, but there's an F150 a bit further up.

    The Ford was stopped and the Dodge was coming down the hill. the trailer weight was too much, Dodge couldn't slow down. Dodge did some quick thinking and took sharp left to keep the Ford from getting into traffic.

    The Dodge had the trailer swing around and dented the side panel. The trailer hit the Ford, Ford could use a new bumper and maybe a tailgate. No one hurt.

    With that hill that you are on, getting groceries is more wheeling than most people do. That thing has got to suck right about now.

    Build thread is getting updated today. Stay tuned.

    It was a real mess here this afternoon. Took me 2.5 hours to go 14 miles (renton to kent). There was one section of 4-lane that climbs about 500 feet in a little over a mile. It looked like a battlefield when I went up that hill. I'll bet there were over a 100 vehicles scattered everywhere. It was amazing.
