Last year I drove 2.5 hours each way to buy Okanagan and tow them home. Made 3 trips but I love those Okies and even my wife noticed the difference and felt the trips were worth it. I'll be looking forward to your report and may have to do some more road trips. I think I read somewhere that Northern Warmth was Okanagan's new name.
I am also burning Spruce this year but feel La Crete, the next best thing to Okies burn hotter than Spruce. It's close though. ”
