Default Ghost Town Run 2017. July 22 & 23rd

When July 22&23rd 2017.

Where. San Luis Valley.

Basic Route: I'm still going over the route. But decided to change things up a bit this year, as much as I love the passes around Pitkin. Our route will basically be around the old mining town of Bonanza. Though starting on the east side of the Sangre De Christo range, working our way into the San Luis Valley and ultimately, Bonanza.

Group Size: I'm limiting the group size to 12 vehicles. Mainly for the fact that this area is still a bit new to me and want to make sure we have good places for camp. I'll most likely be riding along.

Looking forward to summer.

Who's in:

Nathaniel & Andrea Miller
Perry Loughridge (passanger)
Dan Silbaugh

If it's not unseemly to go every year, I'd like to reserve a spot. I have 'wheeled in that area in the past. There's a nifty plane crash up Hermit Pass that isn't well known - a WWII fighter that takes some significant hiking to get to.

This sounds awesome, I'd love to participate. Any vehicle requirements other than 2+ days self-sufficiency?

Always fun to have you guys along. And this sounds like a fun Friday pregame adventure.

That's a good question. So far everything looks manageable with a stock vehicle and a good driver. Need to look more into it. Got you on the list.

In. There are a few interesting spots I know of. Lots of good camping.

*Edit* Maybe a good one for Lindsey too.
