    Sticky: It could of been worse !!

    The 'Halo' was only introduced in 2018 and wasn't much liked by many drivers. The photo below shows how it seperated the drivers head from the tarmac !!

    Sticky: Wow !! (Everyone safe)

    What an exciting Silverstone GP this weekend. Some great racing towards the end and nice to see the Mercedes starting to get to grips with the new regulations and Lewis Hamilton getting 'Racey' near...
  7. The south sees bad weather too!

    Looks great !

    You have a wonderful adventure to look forward to !!

    Here are my thoughts on a couple of things that are worth considering.



    You could depart in the afternoon of 3 and stop over around...
  11. One step at a time.

    I'm sorry but I don't see a way to avoid what you are dreading as it seems to be one or the other. I think your best bet is to concentrate on the fact that you got to Red Bluff OK so you can do this....
  12. Sticky: Poll: It worked!

    The official Tioga pass 'Historical opening and closing' has been updated so now it's official, the pass opened on May 27th @9am with the snowpack at 41 percent of average on April 1st. (Could of...
  13. Sticky: Poll: Update.

    The Yosemite Facebook team have replied to my question on their page (Perhaps I have prompted them to update Status page?) and they confirmed that the Tioga pass did open on May 27th as scheduled. ...
  14. Sticky: Poll: It is open.

    The Tioga pass is confirmed as open on the Yosemite's road status listing so all we have to do is wait for the confirmation of the actual date it opened.

    If it is May 27th as I expect, it looks...
  15. Sticky: Poll: Would love to be there right now !

    It looks pretty spectacular in Yosemite right now with temperatures in the valley forecast at 77F and up on the high ground at over 8000 ft it could reach 67F tomorrow !

    From the Sentinel cam...
  16. Sticky: Poll: Open ? Maybe maybe not !

    On Yosemite's 'Tioga road plowing update' page it states that the road opened as planned on Friday 27th May at 9am and on the 'Alerts in effect' section it now only mentions Glacier point road being...
  17. Willing to gamble?

    I'm not sure I would be willing to gamble with last minute deals at a busy time of year, quite often (from my experience) is that all that's left are a few 'dumps' or really expensive top end...
  18. Sticky: Poll: Yikes!

    That's like Death valley prices !

    I cant find any updates on the status of Tioga pass. It still states that it will open on the 27th at 9am (yesterday) but on Yosemites road status page it remains...
  19. Sticky: Poll: Yes, when shopping around.

    Yes, that's a good ball park figure, higher prices as you would expect on Motorways.
  20. Sticky: Poll: Oh I wish !

    You sure know how to make an Englishman weep !

    Dave
  21. Sticky: That's cool !

    That's a really cool article and a great story you have created for yourselves. Congratulations, you both deserve the recognition !

    Dave.
  22. Sticky: Poll: Yeah that's bad luck.

    Yes I think you were unfortunate there Donna. After opening to cycles it's usually just a case of opening up to motorized vehicles a day or 2 later.

    As always we will wait for official...
  23. Sticky: Poll: Opening !?!

    The Tioga pass opens to bicycles today and will be open to them tomorrow before being closed again, due to possible hazards during construction repairs between May 23rd through to 26th.

    A few more to consider.

    Heading south to Clorado Springs you could visit Garden of the Gods, Cave of the winds and even Pikes peak. From Woodland park it's quite a scenic drive along CO67 through Deckers. You could head to...
