    Right hand drive is no big, you adapt pretty quick. Five on the tree would take some getting used to. I bet that non-turbo 2C is a dog though.

    Years ago I rented a car in the UK. Turned out to be a 5 speed, right hand drive (fortunately pedals are the same as in the US). Driving on the left side of the road. Some of those multiple roundabouts were sporty (especially this one with 5 small roundabouts at the intersection of 6 roads around a large one, outside of the large one drives clockwise, inside is counterclockwise...US driver's heads would explode) but it turned out fine. You get used to it quickly.

    That looks insane, never encountered anything like that in NZ. Bought right hand drive five speed Civic 4 door hatch for about $300 US. Came with chains, fit all our skis, good to go. Sold it to a kid from Tahoe workin up at Temple Basin when we left.

    On a side note, they were full when we got there so they just stuck us in one of the employee's rooms. Private room for me and my gal for evening chores, score!

    I guess you could adapt by never attempting to pass on a two lane highway.

    I rented a car in the U.K. once, too. Inevitably I ended up going the wrong way pulling out of a gas station. That intersection looks like a nightmare. Like something you might find in Boston.

    Very pleased with my new Olympian Wave catalytic propane heater on my recent trip. Kept me warm and I didn't die. I did keep a window cracked open.

    I stayed in a hotel while at the resort, but slept in the back of my Tahoe coming and going.

    I slept in the Gunnison Walmart parking lot last Wednesday night and had a bit of a run in with the guy plowing the lot in the morning. I called ahead of time and asked the Walmart if it was alright to park there overnight and they said it was fine, but the plow driver felt different. He threatened to tow/ticket me and was an all around douche, so I would avoid that lot for now.

    On a different note, the wanderlust hostel in gunny is a great little spot!

    If you're skiing CB there are plenty of spots to park overnight just a few min from town.

    Snow Chain Advice for a class B?

    For a Ram Promaster based Class B (front wheel drive):

    1) Cable chains or regular chains? (never chained up something so heavy)
    2) favorite makes and models of chains?

    The thules have been favored on a few of the RV forums but pricey.

    thanks for the advice!

    You might want to look into the socks. I'm not kidding. Could get you through with a lot less hassle.

    Wondering why more people don't adopt them?

    Skipped the sock and cables and went for On Spot Chains. If you are of the mechanical nature and live in a snowy climate, visit your local school bus junkyard for all the parts. If you want to forget about getting a new fly rod or mtn bike this spring visit a dealer and you will never get out of your rig to chain up again.

    I use SCC Z cables on my little rig.
    Finally wore them out this week, after seven seasons of use/abuse. New ones arriving Thursday.

    The socks don't look very durable. What about the Spike Spider? (if available in the size needed for that van)

    You may want to check the owners manual for the van. Some vehicles specify what they want you to use.

    Shoot me a pm or email I need to look up the FS road numbers. Believe it or not you can park in town in the streets as long as you're on the correct side regarding plow schedule. I asked at chamber of commerce and they said this. Unbelievable but true.

    Update: slept in parking lot.



    Pro tip. Try to park clear of the cat track. Sumbitches are loud.

    Hard to avoid in that lower lot. Nice to be able to ski back to the camper though.

    We slept at the Kebler TH last weekend. Pretty quiet. Maybe half a dozen other trucks up there. Only a few minutes from town.

    I am selling a set of brand new RUD Snow Chains, which are basically the industry best chains for light-trucks. Here is my craigslist ad. Would be good for anybody in Denver area needing chains for their truck. http://denver.craigslist.org/pts/5971712019.html
