I will not lie.  I have tendancies to speed.  I want to stay with the group so I will...  but it would be nice if the route was somewhat mapped out so those that want to maybe go ahead through some of the more fun sections in the mountains can maybe do so and then pull of, etc to join back up with the group.


If it is felt that this would cause problems within the group and/or for the group I would overcome my urges and stay within 10mph of the limit.

Ditto. Although with trying to get into Law Enforcement, I do have to be careful. I know!  :idea: If I don't change my brakes like I need to, then I'll be good :lol:

Agreed.  The mountain twisties are fair game. :)

I'm going to bump this up since it would be in four or five days, and it would be cool to know if it is going to happen. I don't even really care so much about the route.  There is scenic stuff everywhere.  

In the spirit of contributing and not just bumping, I suggest that we could take a simple route, by heading up through Nederland to Estes Park, and back.  We should be able to find plenty to do. It has been awhile since I last took that route, so I don't remember the exact highway anymore (oops!). But some of you surely know what I am talking about.

Pulling out the map today, and planning the route.  I will plan a stop at some good eatery if everyone is on board for that.  Look for the post later today.

While I REALLY need a day away to drive, I don't think it is in the cards for this weekend (unless the weather really bites).

Landscaping calls.  

Now then, if you guys want to stop by to drive the bobcat...

That is what you were supposed to be doing the past few weekends so you had some spare time for the drive!!! :)  I totally understand because I have just finished installing my new deck and pathway.  Bobcat??  I needed that last week!

this last weekend, I did get the deck stained, and built about 80% of a 3' X 150' retaining wall.  finish the walls this week, so I can backfill next weekend.

____________________________________________________________
Option 1



SUMMARY -
Driving distance:  323.7 miles
Trip duration:  8 hours, 14 minutes
Driving time:  6 hours, 44 minutes
Cost:  $22.66
_____________________________________________________________

Option 2



SUMMARY
Driving distance:  281.6 miles
Trip duration:  7 hours, 24 minutes
Driving time:  5 hours, 54 minutes
Cost:  $19.93

We would meet up at The Fort off 285 and 470, and stop at Backcountry Brewery for lunch for 1 1/2 hours.  The drive would take about 8 hours or less, depending on how fast we drive.  The above calculations use the speed limits.  What are everyone's thoughts?  I am thinking we would meet up and leave The Fort no later than 8:00AM.

Sounds good.  I got a fly in the ointment right now though.  I may be headed to SCR to get reflashed.  If that falls through, I think we are game.  I will know more tomorrow.
