Actually, reading about others trips is one of the main reasons I've stuck around here so long.
Good idea. I may do that.

Once I started paying attention to that, the turns got easier, AND I wasn't afraid of getting switch early on!!! A nice bonus!
Thanks for the tip! I'm hoping to make at least two more trips before the end of the season. We are 6 hours drive from Snowshoe and live at the beach (I'm sure you figured that.)
