On the east side:

Very nice.

I know right, I went for a ride today and got the blow dryer effect. I'm ready for some snow capped mountains in July! Looks wonderful

On an unrelated note, not to steal this thread. Is this forum overrun by Arkansans? I'm usually the lonesome AR representative in my auto forums.

It's not overrun it's reasonably represented.

Cheers,

Charlie is going the opposite way (apparently) this year but l'm DEFINITELY up for a trip there when the weather cools down some!!

(I'm going to Ecuador 4th -18th Aug, so schedule for a week or so after that obviously depending on the weather, & Sept sounds like a nice time to visit!)
