All good advice. Cold, north winds, and changable forecasts.

But I wouldn't feel bad about it if I was heading south. The strong winds should be north and west. If you are comfortable with 20-30 knots winds you should be able to manage easily. Otherwise, you may have to work with the weather and pick your windows.

Read my blog, about a trip we made from Deltaville to Deale between Christmas and Newyears.
