1-3) Last of the recovery. Randy took charge of this one. I like how were in the habbit of appointing a head man for the recover.
4) Group shot (was trying to keep with the "spooky theme".

Thanks again everyone for another great run.

Wow what a great time, everyone had a great time. The Kingston Bob sled run was certainly a rush!! Now I need to get this video thing set up, I did the first rescue on video. Thanks Tim for a fun run.

Just wanted to give a big thanks to everyone that was on the spooky night run especially our leader Tim. This was my first time off road in colorado and my wife's first off-road trip ever. We both had a great time and can't wait to get out again. Coming down the bobsled run back into Rollinsville made us think we were back in the northeast driving through one of our ice storms.
Here are a bunch of pics, let me know if the link doesn't work.

Julie had a great time on her first time out with the club. She even was brave enough to drive after the slick turn on Kingston. Great photos everyone and Tim it was a great time. The food was excellent and wish there was not a fire ban in effect as well. It was a little tricky trying to eat with chopsticks while wearing gloves.

Julie Driving.
Tim Happy to see everyone is having a good time.

Spooky lights in the distance.

The most exciting part for me was that first switchback before the icy section. We see some guy jogging up the road and figured it was some Boulder ultra-endurance runner out for a training run. As I round the steep switchback its Tim in the middle of the road - in my path - yelling at us "be careful its icy" so naturally in trying to avoid him I start to slide right at him and have to let up on the useless brakes and hope he gets out of the way. He did. My BFG A/Ts barely slipped at all on any of the ice.

Kudos to all the great food. i wish I had more of that chili now!

Glad to have you here in CO and hope to have more time on the trails. Great pictures and thanks for taking so many of me in the deep snow!

Tim that was an Awsome trail! Greg and I had a great time sliding around through the trees trying to catch you guys.. That run through the "tunnel of trees" is fantastic! I definitely want to do that trail again. I was forced to take the antenna off the roof of the runner and put it inside.. we kept noting the scars and nicks on the trees and were wondersing how many of them were fresh

The "infamous turn" on the Bobsled run was incredibly slick, and unlike Daniel, for me it was a semi controlled slide that required pointing the front end up hill and slightly hitting the gas to keep her on the road... What a rush... Thanks again Tim for the heads up on that turn. It has been a long time since i have been driving down a road i can barely walk on because it was so slick..

Thanks agian for letting us join in late and tag along. What a great night!!!!

That picture of the group is awesome. Great time everyone, although I am not sure my wife will go on any other run if there is even a hint of snow. But, she did say it was scary so I guess the run lived up to its name.

I haven't had time to figure out why smoke came pouring out from behind my dash but when I get a chance, I will give it a look and let you all know.

Glad to have met everyone and couldn't have hoped for a better inaugural run for me and the mini. Lets just say I'm very glad to have the whole thing bedlined after going through those trees! Not that you can tell anyway, because for some reason I was the only one who came out coated top to bottom in mud.

I'm also glad to have seen the masters at work performing recovery and winchery. I was also able to try my hand at some light recovery with Daniel in the snow bank. The slick section was pretty gut-wrenching, and it was definitely more of a (un)controlled slide with a little gas thrown in to keep things straight. Still have some adrenaline pumping from that!

Anywho, was great to meet everyone. BTW, I came home with an unclaimed lamp that was left at the campsite, so I wanted to see if it belongs to anyone here.

Also, your trash is nestled safely in a City of Denver dumpster.

Daniel
