If that sounds like a plan then i hope to see you there. Here's the address for the location we're gonna meet at so you guys can mapquest it:

I am retarded, all this time I have been thinking this is on Saturday (even though it clearly says Sunday the 30th). I should still be able to do it, but I need to make sure. Renee is gone all day Saturday so I was like, this is perfect.

I may just ride to the Entrance with y'all then head back to cut down on the time.

Also, for those not aware, it is $10 per car to head up the mountain ($3 for MC's). If folks are upset about the cost, maybe leave some cars at the bottom and pile into others to head up and split the cost. I think $10 covers up to 12 people in a car. :) Who knows, maybe we'll get lucky and it will be a free day.

attn Denver Drivers!!!

we Denverites should meet prior to the GTG in Evergreen and drive up together. my proposition is the following (since people from all directions but West will find this a fairly central meeting place);

meet at the I-70 and Morrison Park-and-Ride at 9am sunday morning, depart promptly at 915 to head over to evergreen.  this will give us a few min to chat, then head out and get there in plenty of time to meet and talk to the other drivers.

thoughts?

There is the alternative option, for both Denverites and of course southerners to meet up at the  Conoco in Morrison (Morrison & C-470) and head up the twisties through everygreen and to Bergen park.

Not sure what time to meet there, I know it wont be as high speed as I-70 and the Evergreen exit, but it will be fun.

On a side note, I may have a problem with the BMW which i MUST resolve before I can head out on this drive/ride.

I might actually be able to make it to this. I'm leaving for Montrose Sunday so might as well head out after lunch from Idaho Springs.

I had a good time for the short time I was there. How did it wrap up? Was the drive tot he top okay? How was lunch?

It was neat hearing the turbo (and blow off) Audi 90 (audifreakjim on AW) in front of me. I could hear it over my engine, my helmet on and the wind.

The long line of cars got a lot of looks. My only complaints were the people that kept running off the road and kicking up crap and hte silver jetta that peeled out in the turn out to get in line RIGHT in front of me with all his clouded dusty fury. Fortunately I kinda expected it so I was prepared.  :roll:

The drive up to the top was nice, though with all the weekend traffic and bicylists on the road it wasn't a very spirited drive.  When we got to the top of Mount Evans, people didn't seem to want to stick around for very long. Everyone wanted to head to Beaux Jo's for pizza.  We were running a little late (probably due to the slow start), but the hike to the top took less than 5 minutes and the views are awesome.

The weather was very nice up there (about 65 degress with a nice crisp breeze), so Andrew, Wendy and I hiked up to the top and hung around for a little while and then went to Tommy Knockers for a late lunch afterwards.

strange, but we didn't see you up there Jay. Figured you had to bail or something.

Alan and Wendy and I were hanging out up and when we headed down we found everybody gone. *shrug* We drove back down to Idaho Springs and ate at Tommyknockers since we figured we missed the rest of the group or would catch them just finishing their meals.

Here's some random stuff i took.

I was with the group until you all lined up at the entry gate, i just said my goodbye's before the drive because I knew everyone would be lined up and I just admired the line of cars for a minute and headed back down.

Nice pics, it's mazing how "tame" those mountain goats can be, you can practically stand next to tehm and they don't care.
