I will definitely be hitting up the Rally this weekend and hope to meet some people and discuss what is "minimally" needed for hitting the trails. In the late 90s/early 2000s I owned a 71 FJ40. So, I have a little experience in wheeling. But that was in Oregon... very different terrain.

Anyway, just wanted to get in on this thread and hopefully learn more about where people are camping. Unfortunately, I have to work Friday, so I would either be arriving in Ouray LATE Friday or at 8am on Saturday. Look forward to hitting some trails.

Thanks, Matt
Welcome Matt!

I see there are two options for Saturday, I will do either. Black Bear pass on Sunday sounds PERFECT. My wife and I are excited to join everyone this coming Labor Day weekend and having some fun.
Looking forward to it!

Is there any primitive camping around the places everyone else is camping that would be easily to meet up in the morning?
You'll love it!

Great opportunity to get to know some of the guys! Saturday 6PM - Pot Luck; At the 4J's group picnic area. Bring your own main dish and a side dish or dessert to share.

If you're attending the Rally, look me up this Saturday for any other questions.
