The Othello Tunnels are super cool! It was Byron's idea to check it out with his German exchange student. Neat history too. :mrgreen:

Hey Norm, I'm not worried about this video, it is innocuous enough. At all times we were at the speed limit and the corner signs are advisory only, so no worries there.

I'm amazed at how far the lens pushes things further away than they really are. That is the problem with wide angle lens's.

The sun rising over the Mountain Peaks and Rays of light shining through wisps of Fog was surreal. What a great day!!! I can't believe the fantastic weather we're having.

Our cars do work well, even at 1,000 MPH we hardly slow for those corners... :lol:

The sad thing is when we got passed by those civilian cars doing 1,500 MPH outside of Merritt. :?

Those were some really fast hatchback's.
At that speed it makes the corners look more like they felt.

Took a good look at my car yesterday, I sure had a ton of bugs on the front and windshield, and then the general road haze.

I pulled a couple of plugs to see how they did too, I had BPR7ES in there, and they were on the edge of being too hot for that kind of high speed cruising. At one point, which is a function of how our turbos works, on going up those long steep hills, it takes very little throttle to maintain speed, so the manifold pressure is zero or maybe +1 PSI. This creates and almost lean condition, and lean for me being 13 - 14 A/F. This of course gets the exhaust temp heading up there, I know I saw 1,440F.+ . Spark plugs then definitely get hot, which will start to glaze them. I have seen 1,600 -1,700 F over the years.

James and I have the same experience, where sometimes it is just better to put the pedal to the floor, as that puts the fuel into our wide open mode and actually can cool things off a hair.

The new rad was fantastic, given that it was not a hot day out, but my water stayed right at 170F at the most on those long pulls. In the morning, Byron and I could not get the water over 150F.

Some of the vistas we saw really were fantastic, we are so lucky to have some of these routes we do, and then can see the seasonal changes as we do them at different times of the driving season.
