I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

My son & I will be going over Forester in 4 weeks on the way to Portal. It should be high & dry by then - notwithstanding this storm, which looks like mostly rain.
