All sounds encouraging. Clearly it's a nice time to go, crowd wise. Sure it'll be busier when we go in September but hopefully not TOO bad!

The veering off when driving is a COMMON problem. The reason is that the camber of the road runs the other way in the US, we automatically account for the camber the other way when we drive at home. You'll get the hang of it! Have a great time.
