Kevin,
My advice is that if your refinancing takes place after 5pm on Friday you may be doing biz with the wrong lendershark and you'd be doing yourself a favor to come to the run instead. Seriously- I'm thinking I may drive my 40 from OKC and you can't make it across a couple hilltops---what's with that?? As for the food- we don't have any good brew here, but we have a pretty good local dairy in Braums - anyone ever heard of it? I'd be glad to bootleg some of their ice cream for the trip if anyone is interested. If so, let me know what flavors are preferred. I'm really looking forward to the trip--106 at work today.

Dave

Sounds like this is going to be a fun trip!

I'm installing an Aussie locker (thanks IanB) this afternoon, so hopefully, my 40 will be able to keep up.

So who will be the first person there on Friday to scout for a group site? I'm planning on being there Friday afternoon. Probably by 3pm.

Hey all!!

Since we are staying in southern Colorado between the Ouray trip to the TBP, we will probably be the first ones to scope out a group camp spot just up the road from Dorchester. Our plan is to pick up some hellium filled balloons in Gunnison to mark the trail to the camping spot.

Brian, as far as a head count goes, let's see a show of hands of who is going and how many in your party?

Martin, you bring the ice cream and we will supply the cobbler made with fresh picked Colorado fruit.

Today's weather forecast has snow above 11,000 ft, and Pearl Pass is over 12,000!! This will be interesting.

Bruce and Barbara Miller

I think it was Dave who volunteered the Ice Cream. But I'll be happy to share my Beer!

I saw the weather reports too. Hopefully we'll get a warm spell the week of the run to melt any new snow. Guess I'll bring chains just in case. I was going to run without my top, but maybe I'll throw on the soft top...

Just finished my locker install an hour ago. Time for a test drive! Click, Click, Click.

MARTIN, you should be fine with an Aussie Locker from my estimation; we're about the same (I'm on 31 MT/Rs with a Lockrite). I heard about snow on Elbert this weekend, so maybe I should scope out chain tools so I can fix my chains to bring too! Hmmm good project for this week...trying to get the hardtop fixed up and put back together too, not sure the bikini is gonna cut it if it's cold/precipitating. Should be fun though!

Default ice cream & snow chains??

I can bring the ice cream-dry ice should get it there good and solid. I do have an "Okie" question for you folks tho--where will I find snow chains for 33x12.50x15's ? Not much chance of picking up a set of them in Oklahoma when it's been 100+ for 38 days so far this summer

I bought my last set from here http://www.tirechain.com/TRUCK-SUV-CHAINS.HTM
Even in Denver this was the quickest and simplest way.

I bought a set of 4 from tirechain.com as well. No complaints.

I mentioned bringing chains half jokingly- - but if I do bring them, it will guarantee perfect warm weather.

ehhh.. I don't have chains and I don't plan on buying any. I don't forsee an issue.

Just 1 in my party. I'd like to provide something.. what else do we need?
