The 2009 Ouray trip is scheduled for Saturday, September 5th, and Sunday, September 6th. On day one, we leave Ouray and drive over Black Bear Pass to Telluride where we usually have lunch in the park. Then we drive over Imogene Pass and down into Ouray. On day two, we usually drive over Engineer Pass to Lake City where we have lunch in the park then we return to Ouray over Cinnamon Pass.

Last year, we stayed in the 4J++ Campground in Ouray and some folks stayed at the Ampitheater Campground. We usually make it to the Ouray Hot Springs pool on Friday and Saturday afternoons.

Hope to see you there. Please post up if you plan to attend, and direct questions to Bruce Miller.

In for sure. Last year was a great trip, awesome combination of wheeling & vacation activities.... see the Live from Ouray (http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/forum2/showthread.php?t=8055) thread for a recap!

9/11/09 edit: here's the map of the campground, for future reference.. ;)

My first answer would have been anything with a LOT of icing :D, just like me. But I was informed that she loves a good cheesecake, plain. After that, white or chocolate cake with lots of icing.

As for the bike...Little pedal bike still...She is still working on moving up to the bigger bike donated by the Romers last year :thumb:.

Do I have to become an RS associate member to run this?

Mendocino
05-17-2009, 01:32 PM
I don't think so. After you attend a RS event you are qualified for membership. You have already done CM so why not join?

Did you guys set a date yet?:)

Trapper50cal
05-17-2009, 02:08 PM
Yup

May 14th and 15th (wedding on 15th) at the Silver Pick Lodge up by Durango Mountain Resort. Rented the Lodge w/13 rooms for 2 nights and got the Pastor online. All set!

I thought I had to attend an RS meeting to join as full member...not just an event.


BTW, thanks for asking! We both got such a huge kick out of how excited you and your wife were for us. You guys are really good folks

Groucho

If you live outside a 50 mile radius of the normal RS meeting place, and attend 2 events, the two events count as one event and one meeting. You then may be voted in as a member by the RS members present at the event you attend.

So, if you attended CM 2009, and you attend Ouray 2009, we can vote you in as a full fledged member (disclaimer:I already know he owns a Toyota, which is the other pre-requisite for full membership).

Did this with two members at last years Ghost Town Run.

Hope that helps! And congrats:thumb:!

Bruce Miller

Dogs are allowed but don't forget the leash. We have lunch in Telluride at the park and they're kind of a dog on a leash kind of town.

The scary parts of Black Bear can be walked, if necessary.

Ok, per the plan made in Pitkin (and if you don't remember well sorry... :drink: :rolleyes:) I reserved 4 sites today at 4 J's. 14, 15, 2, and 3. #14 for us, same one we were in last year all the way back in the middle by that cabin, next to that open area that's up against the back fence. #15 for Groucho & family, as directed, which puts them right next to us, also in the center. Across the little street I reserved #3 for Farnham & family same site they were in last year, and #2 for the Corsair family. The one in the back corner (#4) was already reserved.. similar to last year. All of these are electric only, no water.

Site #1 is still open, which is the first one on the right as you pull into the campground. If someone wanted that one, I'd suggest moving on it.. particularly if you have younger ones that like to learn how to share bikes.



edit: Oh, dates are Friday 9/4, Saturday 9/5, and Sunday 9/6. Cost is $24/night... kids under 7 are free.. btw Paxton is the tallest 6yo I've ever seen. :lmao:

edit2: 4J's phone number is 970-325-4418. http://www.coloradodirectory.com/4j11rvpark/ free wifi :ranger:

Red_Chili
07-30-2009, 09:22 AM
Sure, I'm flexible. I need to be able to get a popup in there though. Which site is yours?



I like kids. Especially well done with ketchup and relish on a hoagie roll. Very tender.
:lmao:
[edit] Ah, you edited your post, Chris. Still need to swap for #1? If not, and someone else needs the site for kids, all I need really is 1) ability to roll a popup into the site, and 2) electrical.

I don't even need electrical really, but my generator might make folks fussy.

BTW, where exactly is the campground? I see it says 'in town' and as small as Ouray is I'd find it eventually, but I like knowing prezactly where I'm going.

FJBRADY
07-30-2009, 09:41 AM
Anyone for a run up Governor's Basin or Poughkeepsie Gulch mid afternoon Friday Sept. 4th?

We should be in town between 12-1. I was thinking a mid to late afternoon run.

Caribou Sandstorm
07-30-2009, 12:19 PM
Hey Bill, thanks for the offer! Lets check it out when we get there.

They just gave me the hill side #4, I guess different from the other #4 that Tim has. 16 was open next to Groucho but it had no shade. I am happy to stay put, across the way. If we get there and we both like eachother's spot, maybe we can decide if we want to swap. Mine has water and electric, also. Does that sound like a good plan?

We are super excited to be joining the group this year!

For the last 5 labor days, Melinda and I have joined a group families in Moab for mtn biking, staying at condos with a pool.. Great folks and we all started doing this before we had kids..Fun to see us all cling onto at least one night of hell raising vs all nights...

Last year Paul Larger (Largeone-RS forum handle) and me introduced 4x4ing in Moab to the group because it is still hot as heck for mtn biking in early Sept.

I think we converted about half of our group from mtn bikling to 4 wheeling, after taking them on Hell's Revenge. All had a blast and were talking about lifitng their Tahoe's, Pathfinders and Land Rover's..

The other part of the story is that we had been lobbying our group to consider Ouray/Telluride or Crested Butte vs. Moab.

Anyway, not to divert the thread but it seemed like a great story and funny that we found a group to join that goes to an area we wanted to go to and one of our favorite couple's that we spend Labor Day with (Paul and Cary Larger) are also in the RS club..Hope they make the trip!

I'll be in Ouray that weekend, but I'm not sure I'll be able to make any of the trail runs with my tired rig. I'll try to stop by the 4J campground and say hi. If I camp, it will probably be in the $10 FS campground up Camp Bird Rd. :beer:

I have reserved a tent site down the street from the screaming children area. Right there in the :beer: section.

nakman
07-30-2009, 12:59 PM
Chris, if you're in one of the spots that's off of the street behind the campground you will hate it- that's a fairly busy road and aside from the dust & noise your kids won't be able to leave your side. Last year Jethro and Paul May camped back there and they had a grand ol' time... but Groucho & fam was there and actually moved over by us because of the traffic. My recommendation is call them back and get #16, we've got tons of shade under our awnings and portable shelters (same things we had on GTR) plus you won't be around that much during the day anyway..

rover67
07-30-2009, 01:08 PM

RedCreeper

07-30-2009, 04:01 PM
I called this morning and booked #16 so that site is no longer available. That being said, we're not 100% sure we're coming yet as the Ralston clan has done quite a few roadtrips this summer already, including a trip to Ouray back in June. I need to check in with :Princess: and the kids and figure out if they are up it again.

Kenny I've been told that the best "camping" in the area is the Ampitheatre Campground, which is up the hill a little bit from town. I don't know who's planning on going up there this year, but in years past folks have camped there and said it's awesome. I think that would be the one if you wanted to be able to let the dog run a little, etc. Camping down in town at the 4J's is a lot more congested, literally "city camping" IMO.. it's certainly fun and all, it's just a different expereince from the free for all at the GTR site, that's for sure.

And I have looked on line for a map and can't find one, and I must have tossed the one they gave us last year. Yeah would be cool if someone had one to post up.

Caribou Sandstorm
07-30-2009, 04:38 PM
Just called, the joint is a full house. We will probably bring our VW camper again so really it doesn't matter where we park that, maybe a spot will have an open lane for us to double up with someone, if our spot is not bueno for kiddos. I am not going to worry too much, Ben will probably want to play with the kids in the safe area anyway.

Chris,

Doubling up is not a bad idea if there is room. But i know how i sleep and can wake a room up not to mention a camping pad. are those campers sound proof? haha. But would like to stay close to the group if possible. we see what i can find.

Nakman, not to worried about the congestion. just need a place to sleep and shower.

Caribou Sandstorm
07-31-2009, 12:16 AM
Hey Kenny, I tried to stay at the amphitheatre once it was full but gorgeous..

There is also a KOA in Ouray, very nice. Might have some RS folks staying there if many more decide to join.

We are keeping our site and may have some friends staying with us now, as well. My neighbor has a 40 and is a really nice guy, Kirk Smith. He grew up with Mike Goodnight, who also might join us. Mike restores Land Cruisers in Grand Junction and has close ties with many of the RS folks.

My calender is finally taking shape and I'm going to make the Ouray trip. Camp Bird Road camping sounds interesting but the 4J's, showers, and a short walk to the Hot Springs will likely win out. See you there.

Friday in Poughkeepsie Gulch is possible if I can get out of here early enough on Friday morning.

Jill and I are booked in the Rivers Edge motel just behind the 4J's. Was trying for the cabin/yurt on campus but missed it. Didn't feel like hauling all that camping gear this time. Will get there on Friday early afternoon. Then shopping in town I would assume. Oh Yah. Then a good soak in that big hot tub in the canyon. Oh Yah. Then some beer.

The Angel Creek campground up Camp Bird Rd. is pretty nice. 4WD only access with sites spaced out nicely in the trees above the creek. Only drawback is that there is no water and only port-o-bifs for facilities. There's a nice short hike to a waterfall behind site 12 too.

The Thistledown campground is a little further up Camp Bird and is accessible by cars and RV's too. Closer to the creek and they have nicer bifs.

These are both non-reserveable campgrounds, so it's first-come. They could be full labor day weekend, but you never know.

Amphitheatre is nice too, it costs 18 vs 10 and tends to fill up as well.

Originaly I was going to take the truck down this week and hitch a ride back with Chris (thanks dude!) but things may not work out for that, plus it would be fun to hang with the group again. I could pull an all nighter and get the truck to Jeremiahs shop Friday night/Saturday morning (we've done it before:rolleyes: ) then hang with you guys the rest of the weekend. Though I do want to leave some time to talk with them about the game plan.

I dont mind helping out with camping or whatever.....

And hey I was thinking of an alternate route down there.. I-70 to Glenwood then 133 to Hotchkiss, 92 to Delta, then 50/550 on down to Ouray. I've only been the 285- Buena Vista-Gunnison way, looks like this route may add up to an hour? Though possibly a little more, since it would also include a stop at the JCrew outlet in Silverthourne.. :rolleyes:

Another option is just I-70 to Grand Junction, then down. I've done that one before and it's just as you'd expect.. and probably within 15 minutes' time of the 285 route.

That route is about an hour longer. I think the 285 through Gunnison is the best/most scenic way, and avoid I-70 traffic. Going through Junction is painful.

We've done almost every route possible down to Ouray except for the one you mentioned to me before (Cottonwood Pass) and this Glenwood/Hotchkiss/Delta route...We've done the I70 to Grand Junction and down route, the typical 285 route, and even the Colorado Springs/Canon City/Salida route.

Always seems that the 285 route is the fastest & shortest and the only real suck part is Monarch Pass...

I'm looking for the quickest, and the least hilly (read long mountain pass climbs) route :D

Quickest=Monarch. Least hilly=Cottonwood pass. Cottonwood is a slow pass, and dirt on the west side, but you won't heat up like you do on Monarch, that's for sure. And we'll likely just do that route anyway, haven't really talked about it. Are you going to be able to motivate the troops early and roll out with us? Their choice is get up a little early, sleep a little in the car, then later go swimming with the other kids while dad sets up the camper, or they can sleep in and fiddle about, then eat cold hot dogs for dinner in the dark. easy decision, right? :D

146.460 once in the area...Not sure about repeaters on the way down...

Denver > Crow Hill: .310

Crow Hill to Kenosha Pass: .145/.225

Kenosha to junction of Hwy 24: CC Leadville

Hwy 24 to BV: CC Leadville or Salida

BV to Monarch Pass: CC Salida

Monarch Pass to Cimarron: Black hole. Around Gunny try 147.120 (not sure it’s up). It’s spotty but CC Grand Junction is worth a try (been able to hit it along the S. side of Blue Mesa Res.)

Cimarron to Montrose: CC GJ (the machine is actually on top of the Grand Mesa)

Montrose: CC GJ or the San Juan Repeater Assoc. Linked system on 147.375/147.270(156.7), 447.2 (107.2-linked) might also be reached from the Montrose area, I forgot to try it last year

Ouray and on the runs: SJRA’s 147.375/147.270 (good coverage for the entire run)

just fyi. looks like the group is getting fairly huge. If the number of total people (not rigs) reaches 75, you will require a special use permit from the Forest Service. These trails are patrolled and they take organized activities like club runs pretty seriously. You might want to figure out exactly how many people you have in each rig and get a headcount.

A solution might be to break up into two groups and travel different trails.

We'll likely have a big enough group down there that we can vote on the spot. Stuffing the ballot box has been known to occur during offsite meeting locations such as this. We'll have to keep a watch and make there are plenty of empty, er full bottles on the table. :) Help me out here, what is your name btw?

I spoke with the Ranger main office in Bayfield and they told me that any organized group must have a permit. I still am waiting for a return phone call From Mike at the NF to see what it would take for the permit.

The statement from the office today (who admittedly said that they were not the authority but rather the Mike guy) was that they knew nothing of the 75 number, and whomever brought it up might have been misinformed. I did mention that a friend was volunteering for them down there, and that was where we got the info, but it didn't seem to make sense to them, the 75 number that is.

I guess we will all just have to settle on the "we all showed up around the same time" excuse.

Better yet, I will wait for my return phone call to hopefully make it legit.

Not surprised. Also, we'll be driving through 3 or 4 different ranger districts including Ouray, Norwood and Gunnison. You'll probably get different answer from each one.

It's on the US Forest Service website under Special Use Permits - noncommercial group uses. Here (http://www.fs.fed.us/specialuses/special_non_com_uses.shtml)

"The regulation requires a permit for noncommercial group uses of National Forest System lands. Under the regulation, a group use is an activity that involves a group of 75 or more people, either as participants or spectators. Noncommercial is any use or activity where an entry or participation fee is not charged, and the primary purpose is not the sale of a goods or service. Some examples of noncommercial group uses are weddings, church services, endurance rides, regattas, camping trips, hikes, music festivals, rallies, graduations, and races. "


But, it sounds like we're well below the 75 person limit.

It's on Camp Bird (Yankee Boy basin rd 361 on the map) on the right just after you cross the bridge/creek. You'll see a kiosk and sign. (If you reach the Thistledown campground, you've gone too far.) When you pull up to the Angel Creek sign, you'll see a clump of bushes next to the creek, the road up to the campsites veers left up a steep gravelly hill. Here's a map, campground is the star.

I realize this is short notice, but I managed to get the picnic area at the 4J+1+1 campground reserved for a potluck on Sunday evening. I hope everyone that is coming will join us. This potluck usually is great and we will be where the kids can play and adults can gather.

Joining us for this event finale, you will need to bring any meat or main dish you want to have for you and your family plus a dish from one of the following categories to share.

Appetizers
Salads
Vegetables
Dessert.

Please let me know what category your choice is so we make sure we have all areas covered. As usual, I will be making dutch oven desserts.

Hope you all will join us for a real good time.

I haven't heard from the ranger district yet. I will call and leave a message again. I assume that no response means we have a temporary permit as we are citizens trying to do the right thing.

Course, that (as well as the USFS website page you referred to Martin) means absolutely squat in them thar hills. For the HAM radio field day, the USFS site declared the CG we were at a 1/2 price CG, due to them putting in new water spigot (no water was available at the time). Happy F-n Trails management services who orchestrates the old farts reservations in their Minnies told me that the USFS has no jurisdiction over what they as operators can charge at any time. Full price. Oh, and keep the generator off after dark. Couldn't hear the damn thing it was 300 feet away from the nearest site (ours).

I agree with Farnham. We aren't organized at all.

Thanks Nakman,
Hope to meet you! I have plenty O Beta on the area and the trails. It is a nice back yard to have.

Hoping to do the same :thumb: - Plan to stop in Gunnison for lunch/gas

I'll keep an ear/eye out for you. You pulling the camper?
Yep. Lap of luxury for the missus. Doesn't help the mileage any, but then, it is darn comfy. Plus it's a dry run for hunting!

Thanks for doing this Bruce, I always wonder who's who on the runs lately with all the HAMS, and trying to scribble call signs while wheeling is not easy..

Isn't anyone else gonna bring anything? Or will it be a surprise like Treeroot's famous pasta creation? Kiowa Kate is giving me the third degree for info.

Our tomato garden is overflowing, so Becky and I talked about making a Caprese Salad with fresh Colorado tomatoes for the gathering.

And we can certainly bring another side as well if needed to fill any gaps.

Ige, yes I do. The plan right now is to head out early Saturday morning and get the 4runner to there shop.

I'll be hanging out there till I can get a ride to Ouray our till your ready to go home. They are in the process of moving, but it's only a few miles in the other direction from there current shop.

What time you thinking of taking the axle to them?

Got the last of the maintenance / repair items done on the Chili yesterday. Only to notice oil sling from the Tcase output. Oh well, outa time, let it sling, let it sling, let it sling.

(in all reality it ain't much but I am compulsive. For that matter I'm not entirely sure it isn't grease from my well-lubed double cardan. :lmao:)
