Vince's FJ Summit #4 Report
– July 18 – 25, 2010 - Part One
2065 miles round trip from Fullerton California to Ouray Colorado.
I met up with John (DRTYFUN) at 5:30 am at a gas station in Brea and we hit the road. We picked up Randy (5greens) and his son in Victorville, and we had us a convoy.
Randy behind me on the 15 in Victorville.
I got to the KOA campground Sunday night (2 days early) and used the rooftop tent for the first 2 night. Then I got my regular campsite and set up the big tent for the next few days.
Ty and Seth setting up the event venue at the Best Western.
I got into Ouray a couple of days early and went up the Imogene Pass solo. I ran into a former SoCal couple (now living in Boulder Co.) who had just bought a new Trail Teams 4Runner and they asked if they could follow me up the trail.
Not as much snow pack up their on top this year.
It’s like driving on Mars.

I turned around and headed back down the same way I had come up from Ouray, and the couple in the 4Runner kept going on down into Telluride.
A nice waterfall along the trail.
The next day I was a trail leader on the early morning Alpine Loop trail.
We were over 8 hours on the trail.
