Saturday September 26. Meet at 8:30 (we roll at 9:00) in the Staples/Checkers/Margaritas parking lot in Conifer/Aspen Park off 285. This is a little further up the road past the King Soopers area. The Exit is right when you see the Bradley/Sinclair gas station which is on the right if you're driving West up the hill.

I'll be monitoring 146.460 and the CCR repeaters if you have HAM, or channel 4 if you have CB. (hopefully you all have one or the other or both).

Right now the plan is to go up Georgia Pass, down the South Fork of the Swan, then a loop on the North and Middle Forks. We'll head over to breck, then return to 285 over Boreas Pass. I have no idea how much snow there will be, but if it's deep, we likely won't be able to loop the North and Middle forks, which means we can head over to Montezuma and I-70 via the Saints John trail, or retrace our steps back to Tiger road. We'll play it as we see it. The weather is supposed to be nice, but it will be cold up there, so bring appropriate gear. It could be a long day with so many rigs, so bring food, water, etc.

I made it home safely. Turned around about 12:30, did not want to push Ty or the 40 too much. Was great to see 17 FJ40's all at once!
