Default Heads Up

We are coming your way next week end for 7 days. We will most likely have several major breakdowns along the way considering what we are doing this in.

Looks like a great adventure. I was just up on the Hagerman Pass route last weekend. Its beautiful. A great campsite near the top, leadville side, and I really enjoyed the route by Sellar and Diemer lake, though definitely longer and harder.

Check Bushducks for pass status - like Mosquito Pass - which is now open. http://bushducks.com/tripreps/passopen.htm

You Start the 27th? Maybe we'll see you up there. Are you on CB and or HAM? Channels?

Yes we leave out from Justins on the 27th. Will have CB but haven't decided on what channel yet. Is there a popular one?

We will aslo have a Spot GPS on us. I'll post the link next week. You can see where we are every 10 min of the trip.

Too bad you can't switch up your itinerary and make the 40's Only Run with us on the 4th. Argentine Pass and whole bunch of 40's. You would have fit right in.
