Just because there are no group options doesn't mean that you can't pick a trail and run it with a couple other stragglers. Sometimes that's more fun anyway.:bigthumb:
I know, plus I live in Colorado, ouray is only a few hundred miles away!

Poughkeepsie can be done stock mostly; but be prepared for the worse case scenario. If you haven't done the Alpine Loop before you should look into that. I did Alpine last year and it was fun but kind of longer; good lunch stop along the way in a small town.
Alpine Loop we did. We registered very late last year, and nothing really was left...
We were able to switch up, upon checking in, so, keep that in mind for trails you want, but aren't available right now.
Also, looks like timewise, they are only offering one start time, which I suppose will turn into a few more...since last year, there were various start times per trail. "

Poughkeepsie is the rockiest of the sponsored trails. The river crossing just before the Wall was one of the trickier places for those without armor. There is a fair chance you might get some scratches underneath ... but quite doable in stock setup.

this may sound like a broken record but I have seem to have lost my password to get on to the Summit site to change my trails, I would have you guys send it to my e-mail but that would only work if I remembered the password for that one...go figure, is there any way to send it to PM me on the forum with it? Sorry and thanks again!

I am really interested in going this year (my first one) -- but I'll have a wife and three kids that won't want to go wheeling every day.

Is there anything for them to do in Ouray while I am out on the trails?

There is the public spa pool at the end of town. otherwise, they can rent a jeep and do other stuff besides off roading.

Yep....there's
the hot springs pool like he said,
a park with playground set,
lots and lots of shops to check out, including candy stores, a rock/fossil shop, jewelry, clothing, books, art, kitchen, crafts, and a glass place where you can stand and watch the glass blower at work as he explains the process,
a different neato place to eat lunch every day,
Lower Cascade Falls on the northeast side of town,
Box Canyon Falls on the southwest side of town,
two different overlooks that you can drive or walk to,
at least a handful of great, short-ish hikes from trailheads right in town,
the 'baby bathtubs' on the southest side of town,
a mine tour a couple miles north of town,
a movie about the San Juans at a theater right downtown,
and on and on (I know I'm leaving out all kinds of stuff)...


I really think they should consider going over Imogene Pass with you though. It's not really so much like 'off-roading' as it is about a nice drive on a mostly gravel road through some of the most beautiful land I've ever seen.

Still, if they just stay in town, there's plenty to keep them occupied and enjoying their time in Ouray for the week.

Well, if my wife and 3 year old daughter decide to go they can get together and hang out. With or without them, I'm going ;) This will be my first summit too. I just got my FJ end of March.

Update: We're registered and staying at the Best Western. I'm excited!!

Good for you. My wife is ready now, but I am struggling to get the $$$!
