      Love your Dane. I have a Driver (I am a Driver Manager for trucking company) that has a Dane on her Truck. He is HUGE! He is so much fun seeing him in the office.

      Love that 2nd picture. I have done that coming off Pikes Peak in April. This year how ever Pikes Peak is still Brown. We have had Little to no snow so far.

      Last Fridays episode of "The Grand Tour" on Amazon, was filmed in Telluride.

      They cruised some vintage Jag's thru the Mountains, Raced them on the airstrip, then down a ski slope. LOL!

      They did show plenty of the amazing views out there. Check it out if you can.

      Hey Rick!

      Are you going to run CCR this year?

      I'm hoping to make it. I haven't been to Colorado for 4 years...

      No go for us. Just found out the wife is pregnant and will be due September 4th I think. I guess a meet is just not in the cards for us this year.

      I sure would love to be back out there, but it is not in the cards for me to hit the trails for a couple more years. Enjoy the comradeship and views! And just maybe Billy Goat's is back open for business!!

      Here is a couple more pictures from Ouray, CO to look forward to. I have yet to be down there but if it is anything like where I have been it will be a lot of fun and beautiful pictures to be taken. waterfalls-near-ouray-colo-in-july.jpg

      This is just a few of the places that we can go.

      My buddy and I ran the Alpine Loop back in 2016. It’s absolutely gorgeous down there. Great photo opportunities for sure. Even the drive down from Montrose into Ouray was stunning

      Right now I’m a strong maybe for this run. I recently changed jobs and now have the capability to take time off for stuff like this. Hopefully I can see you all there!

      Great Pictures! :thumbsup:

      I can't wait to get back there. It's so breathtaking, and humbling to be up there, it's almost spiritual for me. lol If the night temps are cold enough, we might even try the hot springs in Ouray, one evening. :dunno:

      Been working for months on my stuff already, getting ready for this trip. Helping a friend build a new rig this summer, so he & family can join us too. Between both of us, we will be lucky not to go bankrupt prepping for this adventure! :crazy:

      I am hoping to have my 4406 swap done and at least 31's for this trip. Still working on getting a transfer case the lift will be easy just the transfer case is my hold up.

      I know the feeling. Hoping to save up enough for bumpers and a body lift, but if I do that may not have enough left over for the trip! May have to actually go back to work... wonder if I can remember how...

      Just wondering if anyone besides @gmanpaint have some other pictures of previous runs of CCR. I am sure I can get some from a friend of mine but it would be with Jeeps in it Yuck! LOL
