Hey guys, what is it like to drive from Seattle area to Kelowna towards the end of Nov? Google maps has it at 5.5hrs, 300ml (500km). I am mostly concerned with Hope to Kelowna.

The drive usually isn't bad at that time of year but it can get ugly if a snowstorm rolls through. If you have good winter tires and save the racing for the track you will be fine.

I've got a F-150 that worst case, shift it in to 4wd, that is pretty sure footed. I am just not trying to reenact the road trip I took with the Billings crew for 8hrs of bonding to Minot, through the frozen tundra while playing "deer dodge". What is -29F in Celsius?

Next silly question: where is the address of the track?

You should be good Brian. -29F is cold, I just looked on my thermometer, and it says F'ng cold in Celsius, LOL. (-35C). If it ever gets that cold here, I'm moving.

I just looked at my post, and I guess it would be a good idea to include the location of the track!! Will get that updated.

Glad to hear you are coming, are to bringing anyone with you?

Coquihalla (#5) and connector (#97c) highways have tall wildlife fencing the whole lemgth of them so animals are a very rare sight.
