    Default Introduction



    Looking forward to meeting members to share information on trucks and rigs and doing some wheeling together. Started driving trails at least 40 years ago by renting Jeeps in Southwest Colorado. Since then, age has made me more fearful and cautious. I enjoy doing trails rated easy to moderate in the manuals by Charles Wells, although I sometimes question his ratings. We live in the Red Feather Lakes area, but spend more time cutting trees than running the Jeep. About the Jeep: Bought this 98 Grand Cherokee Limited on Ebay. Not a month goes by that we don't need to try and fix a bug in this extensively modified thing. Before the Jeep, we ran a Suzuki Samurai that we pulled behind a motor home. At least I could fix the Samurai and the parts were cheap. We would like to pair up with some members this summer and do some trails on the bucket list, mainly Mosquito Pass and the loop in the Ouray/Siloverton area. Of course all of this is dependent on the gas guzzling 5.9 in the jeep, with lockers front and rear and 4.88 gearing, staying cool and not leaving me stranded on a trail.

    Welcome! I was up on Mosquito Pass for father's day and it was still snowed in at the top; its open now and on my TO DO list this summer as well.

    When would you like to go? Presently I do not have anything to camp with, son has the motor home, so I need to make motel reservations? Maybe there are others that would like to make the trip.

    Welcome to the group!

    Mosquito and Birdseye are high on my list, I've yet to run either.

    There's a group of us heading to Ouray the first weekend of August:

    Welcome to our group. August 3-6th we are planning to go down to
    Ouray I will be camping along our route doing the alpine loop while
    others are staying in motels. This has been on my bucket list for quite
    some time, wheeling in Moab is also high on my list! Look forward to
    meeting you!

    Welcome! Right there with you on age and caution. Plus, I'm cheap. Not being cautious can sometimes be expensive.
