I am leaving for vacation on Saturday 8/27/11. Cheyrl is going with me. We are going to South Dakota to Mount Rushmore and then driving through the badlands and into Colorado to Pike's Peak. Then driving through Kansas and Missouri on the way home. I am looking forward to it but a little nervous about driving in the mountains. I have never seen the mountains before so I am planning on taking alot of pictures. Wish us luck. My car is 8 years old.
