Hotel or Camp??
Ok, so last year, was my first trip to the summit..
My son and I stay at the historic ouray hotel.
The event was great, the hotel was OK..... I realize ITS OLD, and I had just gotten my FJ in late May, so we were lucky just to find a room..
This year, it will be my son and I, and my Girl Friend and MAYBE, her daughter...
We are weighing out our options, and trying to make a decision before everything is booked!
Rooms in Ouray, range from $110-$190 a night.
We rent a travel trailer at about $80 a day, and then camp ground fee's from what I am finding are around $40...... (In addition to costing more in gas to get there and back pulling some beast) + electric break controller, and something about a hitch stablizer I read about.
I am even on the fence of possibly purchasing a camper.
Now, with a camper, it won't be crowded in the FJ (3-4 peoples clothing for 9 days, + food + misc gear) or having to go out to eat (can bring ALL of our food needed, and can cook it)
Tenting it is NOT an option with the 2 ladies!
Or with a hotel, maybe pick up a small trailer/receiver hitch storage to bring all the crap with........(And I do have a OEM roof rack)
Other option. Hotel/Motel it on the way out and back.
Rent a Camper around Ouray somewhere (Still have the storage issue)
I JUST CAN'T Decide what to do???????
HELP? Thoughts?? SUGGESTIONS????????????????????
(BTW, we are coming from Minneapolis Minnesota 1250 miles each way (If we go directly to Ouray))
