Default Trip Runs this Year with Colorado Land Cruisers

We (Colorado Land Cruisers) Your Brothers to the South.. Would love to Schedule a trail run or 2 together for this summer..

I think it would be a great chance for us to get up north and run a trail that we don't normally get to do, And Visa Versa we could host a run that RS may not usually have on their trips. it dose not need to be a formal deal, but we are going to be completing the schedule next week,

So What do you guys think.. (Saran Wrap/Eagle Rock is a Local Colorado Springs Trail that we could host), its about 1/2 hour from the south side of the springs, so about an Hour and a half to the trail head from Denver.

Then Maybe we could Tag along with one of your Runs!

I am always willing. I don't think I can make the snow run on the 20th though.

In most cases, the runs are posted to the calender. Let me know what days, I can check if there are any conflicts

Trev,
You know I'm totally in! SW/ER is a great choice as very few of us have done it. (I have always wanted to!)

Work with Mr. Root and get it setup!

That would be fun!

I'm also interested in doing Blanca and a trip to Great Sand Dunes.

unfortunately not much, but we working on that

We had one run this summer with 6-7 Rigs.. most of the time we get 3-4.. i hope this summer we can have 10+ or so trucks show up! I know we can do it!

Another reason id love to meet up with RS is to bounce ideas off of yall

im going to bring a list of the Rising Sun Runs and we will plan it!

Any Other ideas for South Central Runs that RS Folks would like to Run?? Maybe the Hayman Area will open up!

What is Blanca looking like? I've heard it's become pretty gnarly the past few years. An overnight loop (maybe, or long day loop) over Hayden Pass into the San Luis Valley, the Great Sand Dunes, and then over Medano Pass would be a fun scenic trip. What's the Old Monarch Pass Road like? If I'm around this summer I'd be interested...

Old Monarch Pass road is very scenic, with no real challenge -- at least the part I have done. It's Subaru grade.

Let's definitely schedule a run down in your neck of the woods. I'm sure that you'll get a decent turn out from us. When were you thinking?

I think an overnight on medano would be really cool.

Blanca would be heaps of fun, depending on what I end up driving by summertime.
