Rocky Mountain/Plains States People Read This

Hey let's get some planning even if its not a formal get together, and meet greet then wheel in God's Country. Colorado offers too much for us not to get together and have a fun family time for all....so whatya say?

Buena Vista? Sometime in July or August?

Lets get the ball rolling so lets get some input....maybe even some vendor action...I will pony up some goods.

Re: Rocky Mountain/Plains States People Read This

Ive been over a good portion of the Buena Vista area. Lots of good stuff down there. Old Chinamans Gulch, Iron Chest, (New) Carnage Gulch, Mt. Antero.

And if you dont mind a little drive, you can get to Red Cone, Wheeler Lake and a couple others pretty quick.

hmmm, red cone may be interesting in a SWB [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Plus the Brand spanking new carnage trail that is a spur of chinamans gulch...and if anyones daring I would run down to penrose to see them get stuck at Independace...All these trail are on 4x4trails.net, so check them out and lets get to planning...Heck maybe we can become the "Pirates of the Rockies" or PRocK or just plain ol POR...we could call it Zukitude 2003....as in suzuki and altitude...so anyone else up for it, come on Idaho, Utah, New Mexico, Kansas, nebraska, North and South Dakota, Montana and anyone else whos not afraid of a little heights

Re: Rocky Mountain/Plains States People Read This

Sounds great! August would be better for me (might not have the Sammi ready in July). Either way I'll make it.

Buena Vista is gorgeous!

Another awesome place is Ouray. It does not have the difficult wheeling but is totally beautiful and great for family get-togethers. I attended the full-size jeep Ouray invasion several times and it was a blast.

Anything I can do to help, let me know.

Colorado has a really strong following for jeeps and Land Cruisers, but not much for zuks yet AFAICT.

I would like to see this happen. I'm building my Sammi now and I feel like I'm in a vacuum. There are hardly any other zuks around here to check out and wheel with but tons of other makes. I can wheel most any weekend with local buddies in Cruisers, but it would be nice to wheel with local zuks.

Re: Rocky Mountain/Plains States People Read This

Draven,

I can sympathize with you. My Sammi is also on jackstands awaiting toy axle and YJ conversion.

I have spent far more time wrenching than driving this thing. Can't wait to finish it and start wheeling it again.

Making your own YJ parts or did you get a kit?

Good luck, let us know how it works out for you.

Paul in Colorado

Re: Rocky Mountain/Plains States People Read This

My Toy axles are sitting behind the house right now waiting to be cleaned before I start the swap. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Thinking about the weather, late July or early August is probably the best. Yeah, it can be warm during the day, but the nights stay fairly warm too. I went camping up in the Jefferson area in September 3 years ago and the rain turned to snow around 10PM. Not much fun.

Remember that some of the high trails are STILL snowed under. I ran RedCone last year in early July and they had just cleared Webster Pass that morning. Those trails dont close until early October or sometimes even a few weeks later.

But if you guys wanna brave the cold, the first weekend of September is a 3 day weekend, as is the Independence day weekend.
