Well, I get home on the 17th in the morning, so I don't know if I can make those trips. But maybe monday or tuesday if you don't have anything planned.
I figured with all the people coming from the front range we would have more people in on this convoy
Indeed....we have just about two months till Summit today. I, for one, prefer to plan much further ahead, but I think a lot of people put their final travel-to-Summit plans together in the last couple weeks leading up to it.It's still early...
I was going to say "That's OK. They're not leaving Colorado Springs till 8:30 the next morning", but then by the time I typed that in, I realized you probably mean that you'll be getting there a day earlier (cause, if you're in Pueblo at lunch time, you could be in Ouray for supper, even if you were to go down to Walsenburg and take the southern route and come up into Ouray from Durango; unless you make other stops along the way). Doh!I guess I'm out! I'll be hitting Pueblo, about lunch time on the 19th. Cheap gas is $3.74 today in Pueblo.
Hadn't been back to this thread in a bit, but I'd be in for Spring Creek or Wheeler Lake. Holy Cross is probably a bit beyond my FJ's capabilities at this point......Maybe Spring Creek or Wheeler lake, maybe even something crazy like Holy Cross (may be too early for HC).
...Is there usually a convoy on the way home too?
Yep. Here's my page that has a little from that day on it.We had a small convoy on the way home last year, we just figured it out on Saturday night....
That's a great idea. You guys could just be the third group in this whole convoy, and instead of meeting up in the Denver or COSprings areas, or in Buena Vista, you'd meet up with all of them when they roll through Montrose. That way you'd at least get in on the last 40 minutes or so of the convoy. Just look earlier in the thread for approximate times, and you should be able to work it out.OK, so those of you on the WRONG SIDE of the hill! Let's plan the convoy from the other side. I invite those coming from the west side of the Rockies to chime in as well. (That includes the wayward souls going to points West before traveling back to the Summit). Ideas?
Only us 3? Anyone else joining the Colorado Springs group?Group 1 will meet in Colorado Springs
3275 West Colorado Avenue
Colorado Springs, CO 80904
Leave by 8:30 Taking US-24 towards Buena Vista
Meeting in the Springs:
Still over a month till Summit week. I imagine more folks will get their plans finalized and notice this thread between now and then. If any other caravans from other states decide to hook up with you guys, it could jump up pretty quickly.So far it seems to be just locals too. Last year we had a good showing from out of state folks.
Any other convoys coming from the east are more than welcome to meet up and join in.
Let's get the numbers up! We had a blast last year.
