Default Mini's only run July 11 (and beyond)

100's in the hills, 40's only, and now by popular demand and to win favor of the mini truck lovers in the club I present a run where we exclude everyone else! Hooray! So for the first (dare I say annual?) Mini's only run we will be running Cascade Creek and its subsidiary trails as time and capability allows. HOWEVER. We are aspiring to make it a weekend deal, so heres the plan.

If you drive a 4runner, pickup, or Tacoma (I'm not a purist on years and all that), Meet at McDonalds in Idaho Springs at 9:00 am. Kick the tires, yadda yadda.

Hit the Cascade Creek trail head by 9:30-10:00

Stop for lunch at the creek and follow the trail down to Saxon Mountain Road and into Georgetown around 3:00. At this point we can say farewell to those headed down the mountain and gear up for part 2.

I love the Colorado summers in the mountains which leads me to an area I haven't explored before: Geneva Creek We may be setting up in the dark, but that's what LED group buys are for right?

For Sunday we'll be up Argentine, because why not? It's our trail and I'd like to log as many hours on it this year as possible. It's quite possible that we might make it a 3 day weekend, but we'll wait until closer to the date to decide for sure. If we do make it a 3-day weekend we'll drop down to 285 and run Red Cone/Webster pass before heading home.

Uncle Ben is more than welcome to join even though he slapped some 40 trim on his Mini.

Yes! I hope to be able to make this but it will be tough to make. My wife is due June 30th. It might be too soon to try and take off for a weekend but I hope to be able to make it for one of the days.

FYI...I ran this Cascade last summer and boy was it rocky. My neck was sore for a couple days after. Also, we tried to do Saxon mountain (also very rocky) from Georgetown up but couldn't make it. There was a rock slide that crossed the trail. Rigs had been going over it but it was narrow, steep, off camber, and with some big rocks to climb on the left side. It was just too sketchy for me to try in my truck. Plus there was a bunch of broken window glass and plastic pieces from someone that slipped off the side. So we decided not to do it. I have some pics of it somewhere that I'll try to find.

Call us tentative, by then we'll be down to just the Tacoma so won't be interested in anything difficult.

Like, like, and like. Bazinga

Maybe I can snag the 97 taco from my dad. It's been over engineer and quite possibly this cascade trail before so it should be g2g though it's not a wheeling rig

There will be pre runs and such so as to avoid these issues. You could jump on those too if they work better

That's the plan. Keep it low key and fun for everyone who owns a minitruck.

This is of great interest to me. There's a chance I'd be down for this.
