Default 2016 Snow and Pizza Run - Sat Jan.30th

Date: Saturday Jan. 30th, 2016
Meeting Time: 8:30-9:00 am - Leave at 9:30

Meeting Place: Cemetery area half mile above (west) of Central City-the normal spot. Meet for Pizza at Beau Jo's for pizza in Idaho Springs after the run. Around 4-5 pm.

CB Channel 4 - Ham 146460
Will will air down and/or chain up (if your using chains) at the meeting place. Most elect to not use chains.

Difficulty - this run is open to everyone. You just may not get as far as some. The only requirement is to have hard points front and rear for strapping purposes and of course a strap ready to go. A shovel and additional recovery gear is recommended.

Be prepared to stay warm and dry with winter clothing and boots. It can be really cold and windy up there.

We can be flexible with the group. Larger built rigs with winches can leave ahead of the main group closer to 9am. This should be a fairly small group. I will lead the main group. Then there always seems to be a separate broken up group near the end. That's OK as long as we communicate on the HAM.

Mike(Treeroot) and his dad Ken, Andy (AimCoTaco) and Bill have offered to stay near the rear of the pack to help people navigate the beginning of the trail etc. Everybody helping everyone out will be key and help make the day fun. Take you time on recovery's and remember all the things you have learned over the years.

Let's have fun!

Here is a picture from last year:

Sounds like fun.
Hopefully there'll be good snow.
We just got 6 inches here in pine today. Maybe if I get off work early tomorrow, I might go up there and mess around for a minute.

Not a flake at my place today. I'm just once valley over from Fall River, at about 9,000 feet. I'm hoping for some tomorrow, just so I can let the snowplow roar around a bit!

Well.... I'm out for the S&P run for the first time after many great years. I blew up the engine in the Ptarmigan and won't have it fixed by then. I looked at the '78 and it needs more money that I won't have until February or so.
