Jim- our traffic jams are fairly anemic compared to the Seattle variety. One of the joys of living here is a 6 minute commute to work!

Just got back from my dealer, got my oil changed and they checked my 5 year old tires, they look brand new, inside and outside. Although I only have 20K miles it has been all towing, so they suggested 5/50 service for severe driving, meaning a radiator flush/fill, rear end flush/fill, brake fluid flush and fill. Transmission fluid looks new. My lifetime factory warranty requires a 5 year inspection to maintain warranty service.
So, I'm good for another 5 years, hopefully. The brakes really feel better, almost new like.

Thinking of going north from Idaho up to Glacier and then taking US#2 west to Port Hill, Idaho and cross border up to Creston and head west to Osoyoos on Crowsnest Highway. There are 3-4 gas stations listed on map quest, Castlegear,Christina Lake,Grandforks,and Salmo? I figure I'll have to stop at least once to fill up while on the Crowsnest. Does anyone know if these gas stations open during normal daytime hours? Thanking in advance for any help.

They will be open and Castlegar and Grandforks will have a half dozen to choose from. Not Alaska.
