Dad is already planning to drive the 40 back up from NM next year for it. You DEFINITELY should have come Matt.

I did not have many really good photos, so here is what I thought were my best ones. We had a good time and enjoyed Argentine and running over Guanella to 285 and then back home.

Thanks!

Glad you could make it! We need to do some more Rising Sun / Horsetooth runs in the future.

Finally got the video uploaded.... I've never tried uploading a HD video to youtube before, but even at the reduced quality I'm seeing on my end it came out pretty well.

I'll try embedding it too...

Awesome, Dan! Great video, thanks for taking the time to build that. The high speed sections are really cool, almost makes driving in a 40 look smooth.

Had a blast guys, thanks for putting this together. I must say to Marco and Steve, both of you need buggies.
