2wd minivan? Not my cuppa, but any port in a storm, I guess...

A 2wd minivan wasn't exactly my first choice either. But the options were few and far between. It makes for a good story though. Especially the part about the guy who was hanging out the window trying to chip ice off the wipers while going down the interstate. If you stopped, you got stuck so we had to keep moving.

That makes for an interesting visual... I trust that guy was a passenger?

lol grin

A mini van wouldn't be my first choice in any terrain, they are usually far too light in the rear end, unless loaded.

DB was loaded and he sat in the rear of the van. Does that count?

I thought you might say: Had to keep numb somehow.

I seem to remember a jeep trip in the snow where someone produced a pint of peppermint schnopps for everyone there. I also seem to remember a camp beyond disorganized and an oversize fire- that turned snow into a slippery bowl around the fire. But I do not recall anyone being actually warm.

Maybe not so much warm, but in a much better mood.

At one point where we had to turn around, a plow driver stopped and was talking to us. We asked him about a particular side road and if it had been cleared. He just shook his head, said "I'm sick of this sh*t.", rolled up his window and drove off. I'm guessing he had be on duty all night and had no end in sight. Meanwhile, we are all sitting there howling.

Glad you made it safe. We avoided all of the snow somehow. Would have like to get at least a little of it.

Agreed. Glad you are safe and wish that storm hit the left coast- that might make it right smile
