Our winter 2016 trip covered 6, 000 miles round trip from North Carolina. We took the southern route for two reasons, time of year and to visit with some relatives on the way. We were lucky and only had to worry about one snowstorm. Of course off all places to get stuck it was Vail Pass – one of the most expensive places to get a room. Luckily the management took pity on us and gave us a discount on the last room at the inn!
