Default Copilot Here

I am the copilot. Rcor is out of town the 22nd and I have been tasked to step in and as soon as the gates open, rally the troops to bring her down. I will be staying in contact with the FS to determine when it's open and then will need many of your expertise, knowledge, and assistance. If anyone has any news or updates up there, let me know, I'll be watching the forum.

All winter, a piece of my buddy's heart has been missing since we left it at 12,500' and I would love to be able to bring it back down. Thanks guys.

You're a good friend to help with the recovery!

The chapstick in the block of ice is classic.

The cruiser needs to be called the "Polar Bear" from now on after having hybernating for the winter!

Per the 4X4 club that maintains Red Cone.

"Red Cone is ready for the 2011 season. Made it all the way over to the montezuma gate. We have reported back to the forest service, and although we cleared the trail, it is up to them when they officially decide to open the gates to the public.
The creek crossing on the montezuma side of Webster pass is very deep. Webster still had a snow cornice at the top that is ~40' deep."

With Jenny Creek on Snow Delay; I can help with the 80 this weekend.
It'll probably start right up with a jumpstart and we'll be able to drive it out.

I also could help with the Jenny Creek delay. We should have a contingency plan on how to get it down *if* it does not start. Strap it up between 2 80's?

If you want it to make it back, it better be between 2 60 series.

I think it was the 3FE that lead to this I'm thinking we need an FZJ80

Hello Gentlemen,

My name is Ryan Boudreau, I am the Patrol Leader for the club that maintains Red Cone. Before our trip last Saturday, I was unaware of the Toyota up top. Upon our return, I did a little research and fell upon this forum. I figured since I have first hand information, it would be a good idea to keep y'all informed of the Red Cone status.

I received an email this morning from our South Platte ranger district contact, " Ryan, just talked to Cindy out of Dillon. Sounds like we are good to open today. Bob, any chance we could change the signs and unlock the gate?"

I have not yet seen a reply that this is definitely happening today, but usually they are quick on their actions. Red Cone should be open this weekend if there is an attempted recovery.

My only request, please inform me if/when the recovery happens, and also when it is complete so that I can report back to the forest service. If any additional help is needed, let me know, our rigs are certainly capable of a recovery effort, and since we know the mountain very well, we could probably make quick work of it. And remember, please tread lightly and try to keep the damage at a minimum since the 80 is certainly off trail

Thanks,

Ryan Boudreau
