    Who all is still in for Monday, August 15th?

    Also what nights do you plan on camping?

    I'll be staying in Buena Vista with my parents. I'm thinking we can all meet in BV Saturday or Sunday, depending how many nights you want to camp, and head up to the Holy Cross area to find a camping spot. That way we all know where we are going.

    Scott,

    Lemme talk with Rich. Might just head out Sat afternoon w/ Kevin as that might be the easiest. Then camping Sat & Sun evening.



    Nick,

    Don't forget to bring the tonneau cover!!



    Kevin,

    Let me know if you need my landscape trailer to haul the quad(s). Much better than that little thingy you've got (talking 'bout trailer) :haha:

    Looks like "Chinaman's II, revenge of the rocks". Yep, I'll be there. I'll be following Mark since he has my house for the weekend. Leaving Sat. afternoon with Kevin sounds good to me. Nick, don't forget the tailpan!

    Mark, you've got my number on the contact list. Just give me a call when you guys are about 30min-1hr from BV, and we can meet up somewhere in town and then head up to Holy Cross.

    The wife and I are only going to camp Sunday night, but I would still like to come up with you all Saturday so I know where you're at.

    I was assuming you would come up like you were going to Chinaman's. Keep heading north on Hwy24 to Leadville. On the north side of Leadville you come to a "Y" and you would go basically northwest, staying on Hwy24 to Minturn. Holy Cross is between Leadville and Minturn. The only other way I could see you doing it would be interstates, and that would be a farther distance.

    Probably not gonna make it. Busted a couple ribs last week, missed two days of work and not sure if I'll be able to get time off, plus I hate not wheeling my own junk. Sorry gang. :mad:

    Doesn't look like Nicole and I are going to camp Sunday night, too much going on and up in the air for the rest of the weekend.

    Let's plan to meet at the Holy Cross trailhead Monday morning Aug 15th at 9:00-9:30AM no matter what.

    I asked Mark to give me a call when you guys have a campsite so I'll know where you are at in case we decide to camp, but we will definitely be running the trail. I just don't know who will be bringing my K5, me or Nick.

    For any late comers still interested in coming we will be meeting at the trailhead @ 8:30AM Monday.

    So far it's definitely myself(mrk5), fwdjunky, B_to_C, and moneypit. Burblover will be riding shotgun with fwdjunky and ktedesco will be riding 4 wheelers with his wife.
