There is a map on the first page. We're meeting at Deckers Store in Deckers, CO. It's at the intersection of CO-67 and Deckers Rd, along the South Platte River. Looking forward to having you along!

Hey Stan, I'm kicking around going with you guys in the 4Runner, what time are we usually off the trail? I have reservations at 7pm with the little lady I can't miss.

Adam,

Using last year as a measure, we ran Metberry and Hackett with a long stop at the bottom of Metberry plus the usual standing around and talking. We were off the trail by 4pm. This year we will most likely be skipping Metberry and doing Illinois Gulch instead. It adds maybe 7 miles road driving but is much shorter in length than Metberry. The real obstacle on Illinois Gulch is called Moab Hill. It's only about 5-10 mins off the paved road.

We'll take a roll call at the start to see who plans on running both trails. That will determine what trail we hit first. This is kind of what our route will look like.....

I think we'll have plenty of time for you to be back for plans with your wife. We will have limited cell service in that area though and issues can always come up that we're not expecting. We're always fairly close to a maintained road, so theoretically you could safely bail out at any time.

Temps and weather are looking up! You should still come prepared with warm clothes, snacks/lunch, a strap if you have one, recovery points and a shovel. I may make a pot of Pork Green Chile if I have time. One of the bonuses of that area is all the fire remnants and sand. If we get to a slick spot, we can easily shovel sand over it.

Burritos.......

Who wants one? I will make a final check on Saturday morning just before I leave. They will all be bacon unless you need/want something else. All contain Egg, Potato and Cheese. Trust me, they're yummy. I'll bring some tin foil so they can be wrapped and placed in your engine bay to stay warm, or chow them right away. $5 each from Ta-Ta's Burritos.
