Hitting the highway to SNOW COUNTRY!

The Armada is packed up and ready sure this family of five. Changing things around this year. I got rid of the cargo box and i'm using a collapsible roof bag in a basket.

The sun is shining in San Francisco and the mountains will be beautiful.

More to follow...

Lunch stop off the highway.

Tip: ice cream is good because they crash hard in an hour and fall asleep.

You are probably the best poster on this site, your road trip stories add a lot of color and warmth to this joint.

Please let us know the pro's vs. con's of the new roof cargo solution.
