We were going to go back to Silverton this year since last year was a low turn out. However I found in January that the town of Silverton's lodging was completely booked for our dates. After holding out for a while to see it that would break we decided to move the venue and will be going back to Buena Vista, CO.

SO... July 20th, 21st and 22nd we will be in Buena Vista, CO.

We have always had good time in Buena Vista and of course there are great trails there. Some of us are staying at the Pinion Court Cabins which is under new ownership and seems to be very inviting to us. They say they have plenty of space during that time and it is directly across the road from the park where we will meet each morning.

You can go to http://www.buenavistacolorado.org/ to get plenty of Information for the area and or other lodging places. There are many places to stay in BV.

We will meet each morning at 8:30 Sharp in Mc Phelemy Park which is right on Hwy 24 on the right side as you are going South. As noted it is pretty much strait across from the Pinion Court Cabins.

If you have any questions please ask and I'll do my best to answer them.

I've never been able to make this event, but these dates might work for me this year.

Kim and Ted that would be great, would enjoy meeting both of you. This is a great year to come if you can, being in BV is cool because the trails are a little tougher than other places we go. Some are easier but beautiful and others are harder and beautiful. I think you'd both have a good time. Plus new faces with the other awesome ones we have grown so fond of seeing would certainly help to keep it going. After 13 years, it for sure about the people, and yeah... Our awesome Jeeps too... :drool:

Hey there is a chance I can make it out there this year.

The Son is off to college at Boulder. My old school. I know we have to drop him off somewhere around the first of August. We are working on redoing the 84' scrambler for him to take to college. It will only be mildly built with 32's. What kind of trails are you expecting to run. He leans more mild to scenic but enjoys seeing others on more adventurous ones. What will this years trails be like?

We've only got a couple trails that will be harder so that would be great, hope you can end up making it. Its going to be a fun time.

Plans as of now, the Adams Family (Ken, Jason, Clif) will be attending with 3 Scramblers.

We will run some trails before the event if anyone wants to join us.
Looking at running Holy Cross Friday July 15 and camp in that area that night.

Open for suggestions for other trails to hit in that area.

We are lodging at the Pinion Court cabins in Buena Vista Saturday night July 16 thru July 22.

We'll be coming in on Sunday and will also be at the Pinion Court. Phil is coming out here and going to follow us up. There are not any main trails I know of out by Holy Cross, which is the main reason we have not gone there before but there are bunch of roads out there that are not on anyone's trail radar. There are of course the trails that we ran in Leadville, Halfmoon and Skeeter...

I am going to try and make it with my recently finished Scrambler. Any suggestions as to where I might be able to camp close to the meeting place?

Ok, hopefully we will see you in BV sometime. We are staying (as well as a few others) at the Pinion Court Cabins.
