    Yea since none of us seems to be able to get our junk ready. We are to go on Oct 5. I still have to get a new rear shaft after Upper and make sure my front fenders wont fall off.

    I would like to hit the trail by 9:00 just in case there is carnage we will have time to still get out before dark. I am going to call Larry and Mark tonight and see if they will come too.

    This sounds great. My son has a football game that day & is usually done around 1230 (Park & Rec league). Will you guys be coming out at anypoint & going back to another trail? If so, I'd love to head down & meet up with you. Penrose is only 35 minutes from home.

    I won't be able to go. My son has a football game & memorial park. I will be there from 930-1230. My youngest daughter has a cheerleading thing at the Mesa Ridg HS Varsity football game around 1-330. I'm thinking about stopping by the Youth Outreach Center after that. I heard there having another tough-truck competition. A couple of my buddies are going to enter. It is supposed to be a mud pit & some rocks. Who knows. I'll try to find out more info later.

    Independence Pass is a long way from Independence Trail. Look up the town of Penrose. It's sorta between Pueblo and Canon City. It's a pretty long drive from where you are. Once you get to Penrose, look for the signs that point towards Brush Hollow Resevoir, just off of Hiway 115. Turn towards the resevoir, then go to E Street and turn right. It's a dirt road that just peters out and becomes a 2-track. Keep going on the 2-track and you'll come to the trail. The trail is only about 1/4 of a mile long, but last year they started in at 9 AM and pulled out at the other end at 6 PM. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Sorry Trouble I forgot to send you the directions. Harry pointed you the right way. If you want to come we will be there about 9:30 to start the trail. It is usually an all day affair, but the carnage is always good.

    We were wondering where you were today! How far did you get before you realized you were lost? /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    A good time was had by all! The carnage was impressive, but nothing too devastating. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif I'm sure that some pics will be getting posted soon...
