Hey all,
Is sunshine canyon open to 119? People are posting as though they can get to Robbie's, but we heard it was closed.

Also, if it isnt opened, we are about to go around the Long way, boulder to golden, I-70 to Idaho springs, to Blackhawk. Then up 119 to Magnolia road & our house in boulder canyon.

Anyone have an idea of where to get (buy or borrow) fuel cans along that route? I'd prefer the good ones, metal or the thick PVC, NATO style over crappy ones. But any port in a storm, if you know what I mean.
Thanks
Abe

Hi Abe-

We live up in Ned and just did the Blackhawk/Golden route yesterday due to Sunshine being closed (per the Sheriffs Office). The drive down was ok and several gas stations along the route were open. Coming back up was a different story. A ton of kayakers had traffic stop and go just outside Golden and that backed up traffic to Rollinsville.

The hardware store in Ned had plastic gas cans a couple of days ago but unsure if they still have them due to the demand up here. Only one of the two gas stations is open and has had long lines. I filled some of my cans at Costco just to have it on hand.

Lmk if I can be of any help.

I also have 2 Jerry cans. NW Denver.

No idea of Magnolia but a friend on CR 83, off of which Robbie lives, reports that people can drive from Boulder to a washout (they are above it and Robbie is below but apparently there is another washout to his side road). See the CR 83 video I just posted http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/forum2/showpost.php?p=239193&postcount=58

This map is from the Boulder Emergency Managment site:

http://maps.bouldercounty.org/iemcop/

It shows both road blocks and roads that are closed to all but emergency service vehicles. I haven't tried to cross a road block yet but I guess that residents will be allowed past the blocks but not onto roads with an emergency closure.

Hey all,
Thanks for the offers of help & insights yesterday. We were on the move pretty quickly & tried not to stop much until we got home. We ended up picking up a couple of plain old gas cans at target, so we'll have a couple of free cans later, when things are back to normal, if anyone is interested...

Our power is back on today, but still no phone or internet at the house (bummer there). But we can get to Ned via Magnolia, so we're working & hanging at the cafe's for the near future. Hope everyone is staying dry & safe in your respective areas!
Best,
Abe
