FYI, if anyone has a breakdown or needs to do some last minute fixin', I live about 10 minutes from the track. I've got a lift and a few tools to make quick repairs if needed (TIG welder, large hammer, what have you).

I made it! Left Vancouver BC yesterday afternoon, slept in the car somewhere just South of Portland and arrived just before sunset at 7pm.
