My wife and I are trying to get off work/school and need to put in ahead of time quite a bit, since we missed Moab we really want to make the CCR run, so what date does everyone want to go or usually go?? Lets start making some plans, summer will go by so fast!! It will sneak up on us.

Pretty sure it will be in Septemeber?

please make sure you post up where and when as I would like to join.

My vote is front range area. Even Northern CO would be great.

Yeah. Go in to that T shirt shop and see if they are going to have any "non jeep" paraphernalia like they promised Tbars4 and I they would 2 years ago.

Tell them the Explorer guys might be coming back and we want our due respect.

If that's too much you can just take some pictures.

:D:D

The only problem with that is, I will have to take the highway to Telluride, I don't think I have Black Bear Pass in me LOL. But if I do end up in Telluride, I'll damn sure ask them! In fact, I'll pick up for whoever wants them and you guys can pay me for them.

I rough it smoothly at hotels so I'll have internet access the whole time I'm there, so I'll be able to report if I'm going to Telluride.

Scotty, even if you dont have Black bear in your sights, drive to telluride and drive Imogene pass back to Ouray, not to difficult with breath taking views!!

Edit -but you really should try Black Bear also, its something else also, only 2 bad switch backs, dont let it scare you, good brakes and spotter is all you need.

Baby steps, baby steps LOL. I'm not real fond of heights, I know that Imogene drives along some mountains faces. We'll see how I do, hell Million Dollar Highway may be too much for me LOL.

I'm hoping that spending some time on a few of those trails will help me gain more courage and be more comfortable on high roads, but I don't want to over do it either. I had issues with Pikes Peak, but I made it up and down without having to have my wife drive LOL.

Yea Imogene pass, when you 1st get into it from Telluride has some puckering drops off to your right, hug the left and scout way ahead to prepare for traffic coming so u can find an area with plenty of room to pass.

Shoot me a google location of it and I'll put it into my GPS. I'm sure I'll have plenty of time to go by there LOL.

I think 88comingup got the only Ford product (ballcap) in that entire shop!

I want another one of those 1 lb buffalo/elk burgers from the restaurant downtown Ouray, followed by a great big home made, hand scooped waffle cone from across the street :)
