I am all tied up this weekend and I can't get out to wheel. :( So I am planning a mid week trip this Wednesday June 12. :D

I'll be doing Twin Cone (http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php?id=38). Meetup will be 8:30 am at the Staples parking lot (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=alco,+U.S.+285,+Conifer,+CO&hl=en&ll=39.519594,-105.306777&spn=0.004643,0.010568&sll=39.518178,-105.308053&sspn=0.009286,0.021136&t=h&hq=alco+us+285&hnear=Conifer,+Jefferson,+Colorado&z=17) in Conifer with departure at 9:00 am. Anyone interested in coming along is welcome. The trail is stocker friendly except for the very top, which is optional. We will get a good look at Red Cone from across the valley, so bring binoculars if you have them. The plan is to have lunch on the trail and be back to Conifer by mid afternoon. :thumb:

Dan....sounds like fun! However, Big Country and I will be camping down on China Wall. He's gonna head down on Tuesday with a Jeep guy we work with. I'll go down on Wednesday and stay either overnight, or a double overnighter. I'll have Abby and Keagan with me too.

Plans are a little tentative right now, but I'll post something up soon.

I can take my 40 if you want. I will have to ride the top section with you, though. I don't think my 31s will do the job. :hill:

Are you in?

If I can get the knuckle on my Hilux re-assembled tomorrow, Then I can do Wednesday. Otherwise, Wednesday is the only day I have to work on it. I'll let you know where I'm at tomorrow. :thumb:

That's cool. If you can't go and nobody else jumps in I might run down to China Wall with Stan and Bill. Don't want to go it alone if there's a chance of deep snow. :)

Dan, I am really hoping to go. Tuesday I need to get the tunnel and seats back in the 40, drive it around for a while to make sure my transmission rebuild is good, and probably take the top off. If all goes well, I will post up Tuesday late afternoon or evening that I can go. I will heve to be off the trail and headed down the mountain by no later than 2:30. Do you think that is realistic? (I have to work at 4:30).

No problem guys. Just post up when you know for sure. Sascha, the timing should be no problem for you.

With Shotshell's trip report from Sunday (no snow and cell service available) I figure I will go ahead and run it even if I'm solo. :D

Martin, did you get your knuckle buttoned up?

I got an hour+ in on it. Just need to fill it with moly, repack the new wheel bearings and refill the diff. Hoping to get a couple of hours in on it today, so It's looking good. I need to be back in Evergreen at 2:30. Possible?

Totally possible. You might have to bail early but I can live with that. It means you have to be off the trail at 1:30pm to be home by 2:30. :thumb:
