We both have! They closed I-5, its open now and I found chains to fit the low profile tires at a custom shop here in town, les schwab was like usual totally worthless
Lol Lookout Pass coming into Montana I bet is ten times worse, unless they had an avalanche. I've driven Lookout in a driving storm, already 4 or 5 inches on the road. Put her in 4wd, hit the left lane and hammered down. You have a ranch down south too? Lol And I like Schwabs, been going there for years, but for low pro snow chains I haven't had to deal with them yet.

I drove 100 miles of 10 to 12 inch snow on I40 in AZ a few years back, a real blizzard, was better to run with no headlights on at night so much snow the lights blinded you so we drove the center line at 25 mph with just the markers on............a very long night

WE have 2.5 Acres with a house shop and a 60 mile view down south

Done that too, when I came home for Christmas, Highway 12 south of Helena was covered in snow, had to creep even in 4wd, made a drive of 3 hours into about 6. Then almost had 2 head ons, and I was in my lane, the snow was blinding there too, I had just the running lights on for a few miles. Stuff sucks.

You seem to have a lot of places to go take care of in beautiful spots. I'd love to do that one day myself.

Back home in WA and what a trip! I Installed a set of ol skol Gabriel air shocks in the rear for more control and decreased the air pressure in the tires to 37 front and 35 rear, the truck handles like a dream now. The drive line was also out of phase causing a major rumble at 65 to 70. Fixed that also and its a totally different truck, a joy to drive.
