Well we know, and we found out last week, it is a bit of an issue with us, but we are trying to work it out.
Mark from Metal Tech brought it last year, if he brings it again this year, we'll do it. If not, you can just roll up on a car who is foolish enough to park close to the best western.I can't quit you :rofl: is there an RTI ramp contest? tibaal and I have been fighting over last years results all year long
Just out of curiosity, for those of us that don't know....why is it an issue to deal with doing Black Bear backwards (i.e. the direction where it starts in Telluride and ends at Red Mountain Pass on 550)?Well we know, and we found out last week, it is a bit of an issue with us, but we are trying to work it out.
The problem is not driving it backwards, but vehicles coming at different directions on the switchbacks, not alot of room for passing especially larger groups of vehicles. Sounds like a giant cluster #[email protected] to me, glad I chose to do BB on thursday!Just out of curiosity, for those of us that don't know....why is it an issue to deal with doing Black Bear backwards (i.e. the direction where it starts in Telluride and ends at Red Mountain Pass on 550)?
I have no idea either way. Not suggesting that there shouldn't be a problem with doing it backwards....I just honestly don't know and am curious.
I've done it the normal way (ending in Telluride), and I liked that way, but I'm not sure what the problem would be doing it the other way.....except maybe it's a bit anticlimactic (which I guess could be enough of a reason to do it the other way).
I guess I assumed that if this other group has a special event planned during which they're running BB backward, then that would mean the whole trail would be designated 'Backward-Only' for that period of time.
Its definitely not a cluster. Permits were issued to both groups and both groups are speaking to each other to coordinate trail schedules.
For and Extra $200 you can just join the other group running the trails. It would also included half a day guided tours on Sunday, 2 free shirts, goodies bag, and 2 BBQ dinners.I second what's been said -- there's no problem, just a few details to work out. The Telluride Rotary group is a great group, and we'll all adjust so that we can both enjoy the area. Right now we do have a few minor details to work out, but I don't see anything that will create a problem.
We'll be in touch with the people who are on Saturday's Black Bear trails -- those folks should probably expect that their trail times will be juggled around a bit.
