    Ok all I was thinking about a night run/Dinner. I was thinking twin cone or slaughter house or even China wall on Saterday night in August. Thinking about meeting at the trail about 6:pm have a little BBQ and then run the trail. post up what you think about this idea:D

    Sounds interesting. I've been thinking about putting rock lights on the General. Especially after seeing you and Harley running them on OCG.

    Here's what would work really well for me. We have a camping trip planned the weekend of Aug 11-13, Fri-Sun. We could camp at Kenosha Pass and then the Crew could run Twin Cone for a night run on Saturday.

    That way Nicole and I would already have a spot where we could BBQ and we a camper with plenty of propane and we usually bring 2 cooking stoves plus the one in the camper.

    I know we are running Twin Cone tomorrow, but maybe it would be nice to be a little familiar with the trail ahead of time anyways.

    If everyone really wants to do Slaughterhouse, that would be cool too. I guess my big request is that we do it that weekend, Saturday Aug 12.

    Although I think that it would be easier to do the BBQ on Kenosha regardless because there is the campground and the picnic area at the trailhead.

    Dave, I would like to do Holy Cross but I'm thinking end of August, first part of September.

    Oh yeah, I'll be baking in the sun during the middle of Aug. in Fl.:doah:
    I think all this work has cooked my brain.
    I'm not leaving until the 16th so if you do it at Kenosha, maybe I can make the BBq?

    I'm totally in. That weekend is perfect for me. I'd say the best trail for a night run is honestly probably going to be China Wall. Twin one is probably going to be pretty chilly in the dark, plus China Wall is pretty open as far as visibility, etc. If Scott cant make that though, I'd do Twin Cone or Slaughthouse too. Between Twin Cone and Slaughterhouse, I'd say Slaughterhouse would be a pretty crazy night trail, it's tight in a few spots. Either way, I'm in. Guess I'll buy some rock lights next week...

    I'll talk to the wife about China Wall. We are trying to keep the distance down so that we don't pay out the arse for gas towing that camper.

    SLG might be a good idea. I think you're right about the top of Twin Cone. Definitely need to avoid trails with drop offs, like Storm Trooper described Webster.

    I have another idea that I think might be a little closer for everybody. What about Middle St. Vrain & Coney Flats?

    Coney Flats

    Actually Storm Mountain would be cool, too. I've never done that trail.

    That might be a bit of a drive for the Denver guys, though.

    I could probably make china wall, but Twin Cone would be a little far.

    I have not run either of those trails, so I would choose them. I'm always up for a new trail. Can we camp anywhere up there? I'm thinking bringing the trailer and staying overnight would work better for me and Ginsu Nick than driving home at o dark thirty....

    Unfortunetly those are too far for me to drive. :(

    Stupid gas prices. It's not right when you have to save up money so you can buy gas to go wheelin'...

    I know, and unfortunately that's why I can't make it down to your neck of the woods.

    Ready to pound the chit out of the Orange truck again? :deal:

    Oh, there's a lot left to pound!

    But not yet. It's in the middle of getting lifted, trimmed, and so-on.



    But I did just put some 31's on the S-10! It's officially fun now.
