I'm still here. I have my '13 sedan, in southwest Washington. I see you're from Bend. We were there in late July, but we did not take the V. Some day I will. We take 26 from Portland over Mt Hood, and that would be an awesome drive in the V. I just can't fit all the stuff my wife and kids need to take with them.
A new guy just signed up, he's on Vancouver Island.
Sadly, the PNW FB site is more active. I'm on that, but prefer this Forum, and everything/everyone that comes with it.
