No problem. Just take the easy lines on the hill coming out of the gulch. It's obvious.

That's basically correct. Ultimately you end up at Reudi Res and can follow the paved road along the river to Basalt. I've mostly been up there in the winter, so I don't know all the dirt roads, but it seems like we rode KTM's in that area a year or two ago and found tons of dirt roads heading in every direction.

Guanella Pass would be a good alternative, or better yet Georgia Pass or Boreas. Both would be fine for a stock Taco. The north side of GA Pass is a bit steep and loose, but nothing crazy. Does he have decent tires?

Yeah, he and I have the same tires: BFG ATs at 265.

Ok. Went over the maps today with Tim. Looks like we are basically gonna steal Matt's idea.

Tuesday: take 285 south of FairPlay and then head west on Weston Pass. Hopefully camp on the West side.

Wednesday: take 24 south of Buena Vista and then head over Buena Vista. Hoping to make camp on the North side of Taylor Park Reservoir.

Thursday: hopefully no driving. Just exploring in Taylor Park.

Friday: hoping to drive to Crested Butte via Italian Creek and Cement Creek. As a backup, will take 742 down to Almont and then up 135 to Crested Butte.
