Thanks for the clarification Dave. Last year when we were in Mt. Ranier, we had to take a National Forest Road because of a bridge closure on the main road through the park. It was a very nasty road and had it been 242 miles long, it might have taken 16 hours! As a result, I work a little harder at seeing what kind of road I'm heading down.
As a result of the help I've gotten here, I've just about reached a final decision to go to the Festival in Victorville.
