Thanks to Farnham for setting up a great weekend event. I got up there Friday about 1PM. Tim, Bruce & Judy Paul and Matt joined next. We had a great game of horseshoes. Note: Paul is a Hustler:rolleyes:. Farnham came after work

There were just a few of us and we thought is was going to be a quite campground. Then after dark, Randy and his family, Marco, Brent, Dave & Justin came.

A nice night around the fire.

The next day we broke into two groups. I went with Dave, Randy, his daughters, son-in law and grandkids and Justin to Holy Cross.

We got to Frenches creek and their was a traffic jam due to two guys in Land rovers continually trying to get up and finally quitting. The fact they were drinking didn't help. We finally got through and all but Dave went to Cleavland rock were Justin tried to do it in Randy's "Gecko"

Cam back down and there was a bigger traffic jam and we waited almost two hours to make it across. Got back to camp late. I think Dave set a club record for the amount of breakdowns at a single event and still made it off the trail under his own power.

Another great night around the camp fire and "Chez Romer". We enjoyed music bu Tim Nakari and the drinking wheelers, and just had a great time all around.

Thanks Farnham for another great club run:thumb:

Thanks to everyone who made it. I had a great time. I led the family/moderate run on Sat. We followed our planned route up McAlisters and Wearyman's. We rolled out of camp by 9:30 and got back at 2:45. Great scenery and wild flowers were about the best I've ever seen there. We caught the weather just right. It poured with rain for about 45 minutes and we all huddled under Romer's Camper. It cleared up and we flew kites, shot rockets, and drank beer. We all ate well and slept well. Sunday we went over Lime creek back to Vail Pass and were home by 1:30. Lime creek was pretty neat highlights were the sheep, baby lambs, and dead horse. Views weren't bad either. Thank you all for coming. Put it on the calender for next year.

Came back late from the Holy Cross Trail and there where bottles of hooch on the table, lots of chairs and Farnhams truck next to my camper blasting out tunes. Looks like I missed a hell of a party

This is a before picture and they said they had 15 people huddled up under:cheers:

Wonderful weekend, great group and lots of fun. Thanks again to all who came out, and especially Farnham for reserving the site for us all, was just perfect and fun for the whole family.

Thanks Farnham for putting together another outstanding run!

Special thanks to Justin for the "clip" (from the Gecko) for the steering shaft fix and to Dee & Randy for "hangin' 'round" til we got back down the hill, to Justin and Nick for the spots throughout the day and for Romer for giving Idelle & Zach a ride while I did the repairs!

The 40's now sitting in the garage on the jack stands awaiting a "TBI" and a few other mods and upgrades. Looks like Idelle's 80 will be getting us through the remaining summer runs. :D Ahh, a/c in August is not necessarily a bad thing. :lmao:

Looks like fun. Wish I could have joined you all. :beer:

So, I'm gathering from the thread so far that Marco is making the 40's Only Run and Dave isn't.

Looks like fun. I ran up to the top of Mosquito pass and called out around 10:30PM. I raised Marco from the top and he was on an HT. :thumb:

Mosquito isn't scary at all at night :eek:

We had a blast, thanks again Farnham for setting it up! Great to be out there with friends doing what we love to do! Farnham, good choice of trails for the two days and thanks for being a great host for two days out there. You know the area well!

Yeah Martin, the 40 did great, we are planning on doing the 40's only run still.

Yes, Dee drove Meanie, Kim drove the Mule and Justin drove the Gecko. It was a lot of fun and a great family outing.

And Dave, for the record, the clip holding your steering shaft together was one of the hold down clips for the hi-lift jack on the Gecko :D You can thank Justin for that bit of McGyver ingenuity.

Marco was the only one I heard up top. I wanted to attend but it wasn't in the cards. We did get out so that is good at least just didn't get to play all weekend.

Yeah, I heard ya when I was on the HWY, but when I made the first turn into Camp Hale I lost ya. Seemed like that 1/4 mile closer to the ridge really hurt the connection.

It was fun to hear you up there, and you're right, I would have never guessed. Heck, if somebody told me you could talk to somebody on Mosquito Pass with an HT i'd say they were lying.

Wild flowers, waterfalls, mountains, "Look kids!! A dead hose, Let's stop here and check it out" One of the trip highlights for sure.

Seriously this place needs a few good conflagrations...

14 years here and I can't take it anymore. I am moving out of LeadVegas by the end of the month.

That's funny! Honestly, I must have said that 1/2 dozen times about the need for a good fire. Of course, it has to be a good one because as that one huge fire shows, they'll just let the building sit there ...
