Show her this. She'll have to come.





Oh. Actually that might scare her away.

What time are you heading up Friday? I was thinking of going up around 1 but was not sure how far in this spot is.

Alright here's an update. Here's the turnoff we'll be taking to the campsite:

Dropped Pin
near Argentine Central Railroad Grade, Silver Plume, CO 80476
http://goo.gl/maps/XcFKS

We'll be before or at the old stone chimney. My goal is to be in Georgetown by 7:30-8:00 Friday evening. I'm not on HAM, but I will be on CB channel 4. Anyone else interested to meet up?

Camping near Pavillion Point is a great idea!

I can try to meet up with you briefly on Friday night. I'm so far planning on landing at DIA at 5:45PM, which usually puts me back in Dumont around 7:30PM. So I can probably hop on up there if everything goes to plan.

Another idea (thanks Tim!):

Do we want to have anyone hang out at the bottom of the trail to hand our MVUMs and generally greet and talk with other users? I'll volunteer myself if nobody else is up for it.

I am definitely willing to help man "the booth" down below, if you can get us some MVUMs to pass out?? Plus whatever Stay the Trail, Tread Lightly, etc. brochures they may have as well. But ideally the use maps.

Does anyone have easy access to a Rising Sun banner?

I was up in the area today along the Guanella Pass road. I have never seen the area busier before. Just a total zoo. On the way down I saw a mini van coming down off the road from the trail... The pressure this area is getting has increased 10 fold since the guanella pass road was improved. I see changes on the horizon for the trails up around Leavenworth, Waldorf, Argentine. It took me an hour and 40 minutes to go from Georgetown to Idaho Springs today, traffic was insane.

So... maybe a lot of trash bags?

Dan-

I've got a box of stuff for you from Matt. Looks like there's a Trasharoo the there too. Unfortunately I have to work all weekend.

Anyone in the SW Littleton area going & willing to transport this box?
