Yes this is indeed a 31 Peerless and we were in the Badlands on our way back to Ontario from a CARavan in Portland. WE made a wrong turn unto that dusty road so no we were not lost - only termporarily off track. We drove approx 1200 miles and got up to 8500 ft. at Crater Lake, Oregon. Car ran perfect for the trip and used only a quart of oil. We have signed up for the tour in May 2013 from New York to San Francisco and are seriously thinking of driving the Peerless.
