Yeah, should be easy enough. Looking to have us camp around Wagon Mound, and out side of Taos in the Rio Grand Gorge. From there we will be making our way to Chama and SW Co.

Some thoughts: I want to set a day aside to ride the Silverton Narrow Gauge. Fitting for what where doing. This: http://www.durangotrain.com/ride-us/presidential-class looked classy and interesting.

Has any one in the group rode the Silverton? Trying to figure out logistics....

I was mostly convinced when Vince said he'd go ....

:cool:

but then I remembered geysers, range safety officers, Russian helicopters, lot lizards, broken shocks, flat nasties, airborne chips ahoys, shattered windows, spaghetti dinners, quicksand, pictos, petros, trail babes (see pic) stickers, crashed airplanes, and finally, I have the hat, holster, and want my own Music Video. Lets go :camping:

I'm hoping to be in.

I have ridden the D&SNG, and the Cumbres and Toltec (Chama-Antonito).

I think the scenery is more spectacular on the C&TS--ESPECIALLY that time of year. In fact, we usually ride it right around that time of year, and this year it may be October 4 anyway.

C&TS also isn't as "touristy" as the D&SNG, meaning you can wander around the yards and look at awesomely cool machinery.

Thanks for the input. Will take a look at the C&TS this weekend.

Regarding both of them. Is transportation provided if you only ride the train one way? Say Silverton to Durango. As much fun as it would be to do an out and back on the trains there's still a bit of ground to cover (still trying to figure out logistics).

OK, I'm in!

We did the Durango Silverton railroad about 4 years ago. It was definitely scenic. It returns from Silverton the same day, so you can collect your vehicle once you're back. Bettie did the round trip, but I got off part way up and took the zipline, which was huge fun. Take the cable lift up a tree about 150', walk around the open platform on the tree, clip on the zipline and step off. Land on the next platform, unclip, walk around, re-clip and away you go. We made 32 traverses from tree, mostly across a river with Class 5 rapids. Here's the link: http://ziplinedurangoco.com/

Thanks for the input. Will take a look at the C&TS this weekend.


I just learned that I have to fly out of town on wednesday, so I'll miss the meeting. Otherwise I'd just catch you there. Basic difference between the two: C&TS is owned by the states, and is a living museum--D&SNG is a for profit historic railroad. In terms of scenery, the C&TS goes over the mountains, and the D&SNG goes up a canyon. In my opinion, the views not he C&TS are infinitely better.

Regarding both of them. Is transportation provided if you only ride the train one way? Say Silverton to Durango. As much fun as it would be to do an out and back on the trains there's still a bit of ground to cover (still trying to figure out logistics).

It can be. D&SNG is more restrictive in terms of schedule, but the C&TS has options to ride the train from Chama to Osier, then back to Chama (or a round trip from Antonito to Osier), or you can ride the train one way and catch a bus back (depends on the day, some days you ride the bus first, then catch the train).

You can also drive some good FR roads all the way to Osier and chase the train--there's also some good camping spots, and a metric ton of aspens. Here's the 40 meeting the train at Osier, and the 40 amongst a stunning aspen grove (BTW--is there anything more photogenic than an 854 40 in the aspens? I doubt it.)

We did an epic hot springs stop on the Outlaws Run 2013. Pagosa Springs for a couple of hours would be fine with me. If you don't want to see Perry's cut abs and my chiseled thighs, that's yer loss, man.

Thanks for the info. We have it planned to ride the train one day for Outlaws. Probably camp in that area around Osier.

:perry: and I met for an hour Sunday and I got more into the minor highlights plan from Post #1. Just like :perry: and since the first Run in 2004, a big part of the fun for Perry and for me is research and planning. That part is open to all :welcome:, but its also ok to just show up at the appointed time and date with trucks, ammo, and whiskey. There is not yet a really solid initial plan to share, but once there is, Perry :perry: will and then we can see what might be adjusted.


The C&TS emerged as the favorite for a train excursion for all the reasons Dan just said so its great to have confirmation. We also think we can work Wheeler Geologic Area into this route - but Perry says I can't divulge all his secret plans. We also talked about really great ideas based on years of Outlaws life. Like making :camping: :happyhour: as early as possible every day.


Keep the ideas coming but don't expect a :drumsticks: unveiling for a while. :thumb:

DSNGRR has additional pick-up/Drop-off and/or one way options as well. But the route its self prevents too many options. If you have any specific questions please PM me on the DSNGRR.

Please note that, after this post, due to size of the group, I have closed the run. If there continues to be interest, I will start a waiting list for those people.

For those that have stated going, i'd like to get a final yes by June 1st. Main reason being so we can start getting reservations going for the train ride in Chama.

Also, I'm going to host a get together May 8th, 4-7pm at the Paramount Café in Downtown Denver. This will be the first of several. Mainly to hang out, but also to talk routes, logistics, etc.

Fellow Outlaws,

Now with Cruise Moab '14 in the books, it's time to get back on to planning for this years run. Would like to get another Outlaw get together set up. Hang out, talk routes, figure logistics, drink :beer:. The usual stuff.

Was planning on June 7th, a Saturday, for getting together. Lets keep things simple and plan on meeting up at the Paramount Café again. 4-7 for Happy Hour. I will get a table reserved. And who knows, maybe they'll finally have some BCB beer on tap:D.

Getting excited for this years run:cool:.

I may be able to make it, but it's iffy. My family activities trump these Outlaw drinking planning excursions. I've said this before: it's much, much easier for me to meet up on a weekday night (Mon-Thurs) than it is on a weekend night. I'd love to attend one of these, but Saturday nights are usually reserved for a date night with my wife or for a family night with the whole family.

OK, after talking with Perry about the train trip portion of the trip....

The easiest way to get seats in the same car is for you to call the C&TS, and add to my reservation.

Cumbres & Toltec Scenic RR: (888)286-2737
Reservation #: 1185773

That is for #1 Antonito to Chama by Bus; Return/Train. On Wednesday, October 8.

Total cost per person will be $103.95 (includes lunch in Osier).

It'll be a pretty early morning (we will take a bus at 8:30AM from Antonito), but we will get to ride the train up Cumbres Pass (and it appears that it will be a double headed train out of Chama, which is a marvel in mechanized travel in it's own right), have lunch at Osier, and then ride the train out to Antonito. This will let us see the whole line, and all of it's scenery (it's pretty varied along the line), getting back to our trucks just before 5PM in Antonito.

Seats on the train will likely start selling out soon, as word of the Aspens turning gets out, so the sooner we book the better. If they get enough bookings, the railroad historically adds cars to the train, and if we are REALLY lucky maybe they will make it long enough to require three locomotives. It's been quite a while since they needed 3 locomotives to pull the train up the pass, but it would be incredibly awesome if that were to happen for our ride.

A Outlaws tradition is everyone sends me basic and emergency contact information. Also, any medical condition a first responder or hospital should know. I will keep it all confidential. We bring two copies on the trip. I'll hold one and Perry another. We have never yet had to use it so lets keep the tradition. E-mail or PM me as soon as you can please.

Also, remember to bring a spare key and let someone else carry it for you or make sure someone knows where your hide-a-key is. Easier than a rock and screwdriver.

I know James is planning on meeting up around then. Though that doesn't help you.

If you guys could, please post up when you've called in and gotten on the reservation. Want to have an idea of who will be doing the train ride on the 8th of October.

I've got them.

And am bringing stuff to Rachel in the morning.

Do you just want me to bring them to you at Folsom?

I can probably meet you earlier if you want them before the trip too.

Dan, do you by chance have an update on who's checked in for the train ride? Thanks!

Also, recommendations for camp wed night would be good. Like a nice open spot so we can get a good view of the Lunar eclipse :D.

Not yet. I can see if I can get a list of names from the railroad.

I'll work on that for you. You'll have a PM later today.

Very good. I'll give them to you in Folsom.

Funny, I'm only half packed, and the :Princess: has a project lined up for tomorrow. So it'll be like I'm doing it all at the last minute, even though I've been off for a few days now. ;)

Either way, I'm ready (enough) to roll!

So just a reminder for every one planning to meet up in Folsom, make sure to be there by noon on Saturday October 4th. It's about a 4 hour drive from Denver. I'm planning to leave about an hour to check out the museum in town. Then we'll head to camp from there. If we have time, it would be fun to A) check out the Volcano outside town and B) see if we can find where they robbed the train (about 7miles south of town).

Cant wait for the run!:cheers:

I'm hoping to leave central Denver around 7AM. Whose up for a convoy? 70-80MPH cruising.

I'm planning on leaving Dumont maybe a touch earlier than that, so we can possibly convoy. I think Rachel was hoping to convoy with someone too.

I won't be doing 80 MPH though. I have a self imposed speed limit of 65, just to be nicer to the trucks and engines.

Either way I'll be on 146.46.

It's going to be touch and go for me. Perry, do you have rough gps coords for the first camp, in case I can't meet in Folsom? Just something to get me in hamming distance.

Truck is mostly packed, just trying to wrap up the mundane life-y things.

No. We will be camping south of Folsom. Either 7 miles south east, or further Southwest. Pinon Hill country.
