  1. Leadville/Lake County OHV use - town hall meeting

    Hey folks, I figured y'all might like to hear about the happenings up here regarding off-road use from a local's perspective.

    Last night, there was a town hall meeting discussing OHV use in the...

    Re: The Campfire.

    It sounds like you'll be getting out before we do - it's a bit of a drive for us and we're not morning people, but say hi if you see us! You'll see us in either an old 2-door Explorer with mismatched...

    Re: The Campfire.

    Yikes @ British off-roading. Most of that looked like it would've been do-able in my Explorer in 2hi, and that last hill climb looks like a typical trail here that wouldn't be a problem with decent...

    Re: The Campfire.

    I was there in Greeley a couple of days prior to see it along its stop on its way to Denver.

    I love seeing old steam locomotives in operation, and this is by far the biggest I've seen. It was just...

    Re: The Campfire.

    Interesting narration, but wow the video itself is remarkably useless - very spastic cuts of stock footage and they re-used the same footage at least 3 times. I think this information would've been...

    Re: Communications -what do you use?

    This is good to know but may be tricky to deal with. I originally used a very small magnetic NMO mount but quickly replaced it with a much larger one since the small one was easily knocked over.

    The crossings were fine. It was beautiful indeed.

    Re: Communications -what do you use?

    It looks like that just uses a PL-259 connector, which is pretty standard for any vehicle antenna/mount.

    My solution is to use an NMO mount for both VHF/UHF and CB. NMO is the form factor of the...

    7/2/2022 Halfmoon Creek

    After waiting for the others RSVPs at the meeting point for 25 minutes with no success, Hugh and I decided to head on to the trail.

    Lots of traffic was encountered among the early part of the...

    Re: Clutch Questions

    I'm not mechanically savvy but I do mostly only drive manuals so I may be able to at least tell you if I notice anything too odd in a test drive. I'd think the trick would be getting together since...

    Re: Wheelin this weekend?

    Please do - that's what this website is all about!

    Since moving to Leadville I've been less inclined to head east to trails, given that there's trails up here that are generally very nice anyway....
  14. Re: My Electric Hummer has a HUGE Problem... and its all my fault

    It seems like a benefit of taking an EV off-road would be how quiet they are - helping to enjoy the sounds of the trail and nature. Hopefully newer EVs wouldn't do it in their off-road modes or I'd...
  15. Re: My Electric Hummer has a HUGE Problem... and its all my fault

    Neat rig. I wonder why it makes a high-pitched whining noise whereas other EVs don't seem to, at least not that I've noticed in videos but I don't have any EV experience.

    I've looked at getting plates from elsewhere for similar reasons if I have to move back to the Denver area. It's absolutely insane how impossible they make it for non-USDM vehicles like my Jimny to...

    Back in ye olden days of May 2018, my first spring in Colorado, I got this 1995 Nissan Pathfinder SE.

    Re: The Campfire.

    Not surprising, given that they've already barred kei trucks from registration, which is too bad given that they do have legitimate good uses.

    Case in point - Winter Park uses one to haul wagons.

    Halfmoon - after staying closed all last year, it's finally open! I'm only interested in doing the easier side to the right/north (110 I think) that goes to the mill. Beautiful scenery as you drive...

    Re: Fourmile Saturday 5/28

    I'll still be out of town then. If nothing else I could do the weekend after that, though by then we might have even more exciting options like Tincup or Halfmoon.
