Alright, so it rhymes.  Maybe it is because I am drinking a Corona with limes?  Beer and the day have left one thought on my mind, we should start planning our annual drive! :)

I would like to start the planning for a July time frame drive / RMCB5 annual GTG.  Please respond back with your thoughts on dates, assuming that most people will have other plans for the 4th of July weekend.  Please feel free to suggest anything, including earlier or later time frames.  I just want to get the ball rolling! :)


POINTS OF INTEREST AND DECISION -

1) Drive date  -  July 9th
2) Drive route                   - The Fort to Boulder
3) Drive distance               - About 250 miles
5) Other thoughts...?


WHAT TO BRING -

1) FRS Radio and batteries (if you have one)
2) Full tank of fuel                
3) Some good music
4) Helmet  (not really, unless you are riding with me)
5) Money for lunch (about $15) breakfast ($5) and trail ridge ($10)


Final Drive Information


The Fort to Boulder

We will meet up at The Fort off 285 and 470 no later than 9:45 AM on Saturday, and stop at Backcountry Brewery for lunch for 1 1/2 hours. The drive would take about 7 hours or less, depending on how fast we drive. The above calculations use the speed limits. Please PM me with any questions.  I will provide paper maps with better detail at The Fort when we meet up.  Please respond in the headcount thread if you are going so I can let Backcountry know and get the right amount of breakfast goodies.

See everyone then!!!

Well July is a bit sketchy for me, but I don't really have anything to drive anyway. I am booked the first three weekends of July.

well, I don't have any of those weekends off, so I am out....

But Jay, if you want something to drive, I would be happy to loan you one of mine for the day so you can enjoy, you just cover cost of gas.

Just a new kid here, but I would really like to get o ut and meet everyone.  I am spoken for from July 16-24.  Vegas here I come!  So anytime before is great for me.  How about the weekend after the 4th?

I am interested.  availability might be an issue as a couple of our weekends are already full, but if it falls on an open weekend, I am in.

I, like you have suggested, have plans for the weekend of the 4th.  Otherwise, I am wide open and would enjoy a drive and GTG.

So far it sounds like either the the 9th or 10th and the 30th and 31st of July work for most people.  - Jon, when do you have a weekend off?

9th++;

actually that would be the 10th, but you know what I mean. One more vote for the 9th. That weekend would work better for me - leaving the last weekend of July for NC.

I would be up for the 9th, but I'd have to leave early for a Rockies game.

I could probably do the 10th, but I might be really hung over, have a wedding to go to on the 9th.

I'd hope they're would be informal drives scattered throughout the summer as in years past. :?

So LEAD!

Declare one!

Say something like, "On Saturday the 9th of July I am going on a drive.  I'll be leaving from the conoco station off of 470 near bandimere at 8:45 in the morning.  Meet there at 8:30.  I figure on driving for about 6 hours with stops for amazing vistas and good food.  join me if you can."

That ought to get things going.

I probably could do both... but would prefer to do the 10th.  9th is my b-day and might have to go out at night... which might not allow a cruise during the day.

I'm open for any weekend in July.
The drive should end somewhere cool -- some national park, a cool drinking hole, etc.

Yeah, I am thinking of a drive that is not of the normal variety that has a lunch break at a good drinking hole / restaurant.  I wanted to pin down a date before we started talking about the details of the drive.  

Any suggestions on drive routes and good eateries?  Anyone want to cross-post on other forums for me?

I still love this route for a day's get away.  kind of long (560 miles) but it does have 100K vertical feet of elevation change.   :D

I was thinking of keeping the drive less than 250 miles, which would be about 3 - 4 hours of actual driving, giving us time for a good lunch break.
