Hi, I was just about to sign up for this road trip when my wife reminded me that we will be in Italy at that time. However, if you plan another trip through the mountains in the future we would love to join the group.

Ken.

I just spoke to the hotel, there are still accommodations available. At this point my guesstimate is at least 10 cars, it’s going to be one heck of a drive!

Hi, I am trying to contact the Americourt Hotel, the number listed on the web: 425-727-7311 comes back as an un-assigned number. Further, the booking sites advise that the hotel is sold out for that week-end. Do you have any information that might assist us?

Thanks, Ken

Got it almost right it’s not 425, it’s 423. I just called up there and spoke to the front desk, Billy is the manager and he is giving us a special rate. They have a number of rooms still available.

Everybody who is coming, please post here that you are coming.
