Oh my how the time flies.. but it's time again to dress up the truck, put another layer on the kids, and head out for the annual Spooky Night Run. This year we'll attempt to tackle Kingston Peak, and whatever amount of snow it has on it. At some point we'll park & do the official cook out, then it's back in trucks and head across the tundra then down towards Alice. We'll meet at 5:00, plan on being home around midnight. Spooky!!! :eek:

I've never run this trail so late in the year, so not too sure what to expect. If the snow gets too deep we can always turn around and head back the way we came.. should be a ton of fun in either case.

Meet in Rollinsville at 5:00 PM on Saturday evening, October 27.

Bring warm clothes, and something to contribute to the big cookout. My requests would include hot chocolate, chili, queso dip, coffee... but heck I like everything. Last year some folks brought sleds, which made for some great entertainment as well. also you can leave the beer at home... as this is a huge night for roadside checkpoints anyway.

Hope a bunch of you can make it out, should be a georgous night and a lot of fun.... who's coming? :thumb:

I wonder if I will have elk kabobs to thrown on the grill?
Aw, just realized I won't have the CWD testing back... hafta settle for turbogoat I guess. I *might* make it, all depending on when I get back from the elk hunt.

Next year maybe we can discuss doing this a weekend earlier or on a Friday? I'm always committed to a party on the Saturday before Halloween. I guess I could try to get them to move their party too. Anyone else have scheduling conflicts or am I the only one faced with this annual conundrum?

A weekend earlier isn't a bad suggestion, and yes I'm missing out on a party because I've signed up to lead this. Ok Kipper next year we'll do this on Saturday October 18th. To do Friday instead we'd have to push the meeting time out a couple hours, which is too late to be out, IMO..

Yea, the Sat before Halloween is always a busy one. Veloswap is that afternoon. My local climbing gym puts on a great party/comp that I hate to miss. Descisions... descisions...

We plan to attend - whether alone or with the family :thumb:

As for the weekend you run it...I guess you could change it to a week earlier or a week later and call it the "Not So Spooky Run" or the "Less Spooky Run" :hill:

O i really wish i could go but i am working that night! sounds like fun though.....speaking of work, if by anychance anyone wants to do something else spooky for halloween and support a fellow wheeler you could always stop by 13th door and Slaughterhouse gultch. They are both haunted houses where i happen to work. Just advertising!

Rollinsville (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rollinsville,_Colorado) is basically a place more than a city. A resteraunt, couple houses couple misc shops, few abandoned buildings, but most importantly the junction of Rollins Pass road and Highway 119 (Peak to Peak). Usually meet just after you turn onto Rollins Pass Road.

I'm coming too with my boyfriend Matt who I think a lot of you have met. Should we bring like a side dish thing to share with everyone or dinner? How many people (about) are going and what's the food situation?

Rats, I can't make it. My rear brake circuit failed when up elk hunting and I got to tow a new camper back with only front brakes and trailer brakes, I don't think anyone wants to be in front of me that night!!
Master cylinder ordered from Marlin but won't be here in time.
Have a great time!

Tim,
Are you coordinating munchies or does everyone just bring chips and dip?

What is the main course? ;)

Head count?

I'm thinking of doing chili dogs this year.. or maybe Italian sausage sandwiches.. and I can take care of the bulk of that.. and I'll also come up with an herbivorous alternative for Corp. O'Reilly & Co, plus whatever else I think of while at the store. If everyone else could just bring something easy to share that would be great, really hard to go wrong though. Just remember it's going to be relatively dark, and cold, and quite possibly windy.. so hot queso dip tends to be a little more popular than spinach salad. Anything that you'd enjoy eating while standing up with gloves on :)

Would be great if you are able to!

Anyone heard about the snow up there? Thinking of throwing some sleds in for the kids but hard to sled if it is still just rocks and dirt :hill:

The brakes too a little longer than I thought on Beth's Cruiser. I'll make it next year. If anyone wants to, free beer at my house. I started drinking at dinner, may as well keep it up for a bit. :)

Great run Sir Nakgadget! What time did everyone get home? Matt and I had no issues and actually went full spooky and explored a new route and as Nak thought, we came out on rd 175 ot the Kingston Peak road. Very cool!

I got home at 02:30 :snail::doh:

Glad you made it to a gas station! We were wondering and kept an eye out for you heading down the canyon towards Golden but figured you probably didn't go that way.
