I'll meet everyone at the trailhead at 8 unless I hear otherwise. I'll be in the Toyota. Everyone cross their fingers and hope my home shortened driveshaft has less vibration than the noodle it replaced.

Almost made it.

Decided not to go through the pitch black passes across the state until 1am, and then set camp. We be exhausted. Pulled into Salida at 10pm. We grabbed a room.

Plan is to try to meet up with you guys in Telluride after you get off black bear tomorrow.

Without any power steering, whatsoever, we can only turn the wheels while moving. That rules out those tight switchbacks.

You guys have a blast, and take plenty of pictures of each others rigs up there.

Hitting the road in about an hour. See everyone at Ironton Wednesday morning. Still planning at 8AM? Oof thats going to be a early morning speed run over Ophir 🤣 Probably be camping around Trout Lake area tonight on Ophir side and may not have service.

Also what CB channel is the group using?

Sorry I have been absent. Got into Ouray this afternoon and set up a tent camp.

Winds came ripping thru and tore it all down 30 minutes later. Busted up the popup canopy pretty good. The hits just keep coming. Lol

Heading downtown Ouray for dinner. We will be ready to join in the morning.

Hope you guys had fun today!!

Gregg, the old McDonald's jingle is going through my head. "You deserve a break today".

Good timing. We just sat down to relax and catch up.

So yes. Got a pump installed, but it wouldn't work. Went from Colby kansas to Ouray with no power steering.

Check out my last post on the black hole registry for details and more gift giving. Lol

Had a great day doing the alpine loop.

Rental Rubicon did the job, but just wasn't the same as using the explorer. Was all good tho, as my son took the wheel for the day, and got to experience the trails, pick lines, and do switch backs for the first time.

Like all our forum meets, it was great to see some old friends, and make some new ones.

Tomorrow is a tourist day for us. Traveler, my son, and I will check out the box cannon falls, check out some small towns, and eat the local grubs.

I hope those that came had a good time, and show up to our meet in Moab next May.

Sorry I had issues with the rig, and couldn't be here from day 1. Stuff happens, but still wish I was there from the beginning.

Made it home around 1015 tonight. No issues on the way home. Just smooth driving for 855 miles. I'm sleepy so I'll post more tomorrow. 🤙
