Do a search for "scenic drive" and you will find a large post on this topic. Every year a convoy is arranged.

Re: Fj summiters from colorado...!!!...

There's a group heading out on the 20th from the front range. One in Colorado Springs the other out of Morrison (Conoco)
Check out the link.

5th Annual Convoy through scenic Colorado

I'll be heading with them to Gunnison, taking the picture at the res, then heading south to lake City to go over Engineer Pass on the way to Ouray.

Learned a lot on many of the upgrades and installed items. The more it gets trailed the more impressed I am with it's capabilities. It's been a blast so far.

Re: Fj summiters from colorado...!!!...

I plan on being in Ouray on the 20th, would normally pickup Hwy 50 @ Delta but might be doing some trail work up on the Uncompahgre Plateau in which case I will take the Divide rd. to Hwy 62 into Ridgway then on to 550 to Ouray.

Re: Fj summiters from colorado...!!!...

Seems like the only time when people caravan is on that Wednesday (one caravan or another). Since we always go out there the weekend before, we miss out.

Good luck finding somebody else to roll with, Tonka

Re: Fj summiters from colorado...!!!...

Not sure when we will leave Junction, but 50 South through Montrose and Ridgeway. I posted on the convoy thread to see if some of the Moab tour group wanted to join in.

A grilled cheese, please!

Re: Fj summiters from colorado...!!!...

I will likely be leaving Denver on Tuesday morning; haven't decided which way to go but I'm leaning towards 285/50/550.
