    I've driven it...good thing I didn't have Strava on and kill the KOM...You are awesome Phil. Love seeing what you do and the way you enjoy it. What a change in climate(s) on your way up...I've read that the big island of Hawaii has all but like two climates in the world...you pretty much saw it all
