Well done. I joined the FB group and this meets a pent-up desire of people who can travel without roads to assist. the formal rescue organizations are leery of ad-hoc help, often rightfully so, but a grass roots effort that connects with local residents and gets involved on a personal level is something entirely different. There are likely long term access needs to be addressed.

Hey Zack - greetings.

You've covered it well, I feel. They need help getting in touch with proper authorities that have jurisdiction over the area - THomas thought that CDOT is now in charge (FEMA was involved initially). If anyone has experience in dealing with or knows how to reach people in CDOT please let Zack or myself know and we'll pass it on to Thomas and the rest of the group.

I don't want to be a wet blanket, and I hope there is some way this group of 4-wheelers can assist... BUT I've been working up there since Wednesday night (Northwest of Boulder, down to Lee Hill and Lefthand) and there really isn't any way past the destruction without heavy machinery. The landslides are deep with big boulders, the washouts are deep and steep. When you get to an area that's gone, that's as far as a vehicle is going.

Tough reality...
