There are a couple of us (stock 80 w/sliders, 100, taco) from Vail headed to the warmth of Buena Vista this Sunday. Time to work the bugs out before spring. http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php?id=1

Meet at 10:00am.

Far, The weather was great on Thursday and they have had .09" precip in Feb. I would be shocked to see any snow on the trail. Expecting a Hi of 57 Sunday. If I dont talk to you later, lets meet at the large gas station on the south side of H285 about a 1/4-1/2 mile east of junction H24 & H285 @ 10:00. cb ch 4 until we get our Hams on monday ( cross your fingers). Anyone from Denver area is welcome. Im leaving from Englewood at 8:00am

Well, I just got home from Chinaman Gulch. For those that thought about it, it was the perfect day for a winter? offroading?? Felt more like May. Pushing 60+ for the hi made for a great trail day. The trail ended up being a little more difficult from my last trip which was the fj TT run in april two years ago. all of the rock stacks throughout the trail have been removed. Expect them to be filled back in by early summer. We had me (Taco, Farnham (100 s), one rubicon and a LX 470 ( who for his third time or so did quite well. Its nice to see the Lexus's on the trails. Cheers to all!!!

Cool. I bet that last obstacle (sheps revenge) after the double slab was difficult with no rocks stacked.
