Mauna Kea tour?

Is anyone willing to take two people up to Mauna Kea this Saturday for the observatory tour and lecture? My husband and I don't really care about the sunset and star gazing tours, we just want to hear about the research they're doing and peer at the telescopes up close.

If we can't find a ride, I've heard that Harper's rentals lets you drive up the Saddle Road. I'm not too keen on driving up there because I've never used a four-wheel drive car. Would it be terribly difficult for me or would I get used to it?
