Spotting the Escalator is not to bad because there are very few things that can go wrong and I have tried them all

Now as for the Gate, that is a whole different story. I have done it and spotted it and it is still one that I cringe when I need to spot it. It is so easy for a driver to think they are OK and keep going on the lower section that they keep going, next thing they roll. Then there is the top section that is nearly the same way but to the other side.

Some great spotters to that section from are Gary W and Robbie, they know within inches of where to put your tires. I am closer to 6-8" of where to put the tires. Good luck and hopefully somebody will be able to help, wish I was going

You will still need a CB, just buy an inexpesive one and then get a ham. And you are correct, you CAN NOT transmit without a license but you can listen.

Pretty much have to be on your computer when registration opens. I didn't get a call so I assume Im in.


Well, I've been doing a couple last minute tweaks to the truck and It's ready to go for next week. Going wheeling with the club this Saturday probably Dome or nearby. I'll be leaving Thursday afternoon. I'd like to run chicken corners just to re-familiarize myself with it. Other than that I just want to go wheeling and hang. I was hoping to have my HAM license by now but wasn't able to schedule the test at a time that worked. I'll have it with me but I'll be transmitting on CB. If anyone needs a yard to camp in on the way you are welcome to stay in mine, it's quiet. See you guys Thursday night. If anyone is driving through GJ on Thursday afternoon I wouldn't mind the caravan.

Gary spotted me last year through the gate and I'll really like him to train me on spotting it. I did not lift a wheel. Well you were there.

Was at last nights met and heard about this! I'm definitely interested in leading or gunning. I will be there to meet up Thursday, can't wait to meet up!

Thanks,

You guys have fun. Sarah and I are going tomorrow. Rachel can't make it. So if you see a 100 series and an 80 series headed west on I-70 late tomorrow, that will be us.

I have some scraps I'll bring. Enough for one night's fire.

Do we have a final count and any proposed trails? I'd like to run the Dome Plateau route the same way we plan to run it at CM since I don't know that the way we informally ran it last year was the EJS EIS route. Since its 45 min or an hour from BFE to Dome (starts at Dewey Bridge) I'd like us to consider running it Friday, that way those of us who have to leave Denver later in the day could sleep anywhere from a hotel in GJ to camping at Rabbit Valley or Dewey Bridge and make the drive out easier Thursday. If you are at BFE Friday its still not a bad choice as we could meet at the trailhead at 9AM. I'm hesitant to run Dome Sunday AM as we don't know how long it will take and that could make for a very long drive home Sunday, but I'm willing to do that if we start early. I know a few guys drove home Sunday after Dome last year.

We could also make Saturday a Grand Tour day and run Dome and return to BFE by way of La Salle Mtn. pass, but that's a lot of pavement.

Other than Dome, I'm up for any trails.

Got the engine cooker and modified heat shield in last night and ready for the desert. My friend Doug will be joining us.
