    Wanted to make it official.

    Old Chinaman's Gulch (OCG)

    Meet @ Gunsmoke Truck Stop in Johnson Village 8:30AM, Saturday March 11th.

    This is a really fun challenging trail, for those of you that haven't done it yet.

    Aftwards we'll plan on getting some vittles at the Coyote Cantina in Johson Village. Perhaps discuss some future trail runs.

    Hope Jiminy and Bluebeard can resist turning this into a homoghay thread.:rolleyes:

    Here's a map from 4x4Trails.net
    [​IMG]

    Actually I was thinking if we have some guys that have never been to OCG, we could meet in Johnson Village at the gas station. It can be a little bit of a trick to find the gate to OCG trailhead if you don't know where you're going.

    EDIT: see above, we'll meet in Johnson Village @ Gunsmoke Truck Stop.

    Mapquest

    EDIT AGAIN: Their stupid link doesn't seem to work. You guys can find it. Just look for all the K5s.

    Not to be picky but the red line coming from US 285 will not get you to OCG but my bosses private lake. So unless someones K5 is a submarine in disguise and you are wanting to go up OCG the old way one had better turn on South on County Road 301 and go to the second red line. :) :)

    Wait, so is THIS the time we're all going to get together afterwards and talk about trails and what-not for the upcoming year? Or did that die with Bo's club idea? :dunno:

    I sure could use a break after the trail run. I find that driving for 12 hours straight requires more energy than I have and I have taken a nap the last couple times after trail runs at gas stations on the way back to Boulder. -It doesn't help that I ahve to get up before the break of dawn to meet you sadistic mofo's at the trailhead while it's still -1 out :deal:

    Car seat

    While if we're having seating issues since i'm going up north to enjoy this ride, we can think about strapping a carseat on the bed of Nick's truck. It'll be real easy strapping that puppy to the back of the cab. Not only that, whovever rides the bed seat can get some extremely crisp fresh air!:D

    Oh man Cricket, maybe you ride in middle of seat be comfy. Watch Nick carefully out of corner of eye! :)

    Mike, you get to the GUNSMOKE TRUCK STOP on the southside of US24-285 in Johnson Village and I will personally get you to the trail. The same for you Duane! :) Early birds we could eat breakfast at truck stop or Coyote Cantina!

    If anyone gets lost I am in the book!

    Nick, you bring the MAP and a CALENDAR and we could adjourn to the Coyote Cantina in JV to sceeme about future trips!

    Fred

    Maybe after the trail we can pencil in a few dates for some trail runs.

    I like that nap thing after the run LOL

    I have a open seat in the crawler so if anyone wants to ride your more than welcome.
