    Good points, you guys. Somethings are inexcusable if you are going to be a paid writer. Especially in the first sentence; something that "wrong" jumps out at a knowledgeable reader and right or wrong, it taints the balance of the piece.

    Pretty cool story, though; must've been frightening. BP

    Donner Pass?! if those people weren't able to be rescued history could have repeated itself and they might have turned into another Donner Party!

    We had loads of Weasel's in Sweden & Norway & there's still a few around, good Studebaker-country!
    If you go in on www.studebakerklubben.se & click on "bilar" & scroll down just a little you'll see one Norwegian.
