    Default Wheeler Lake Friday Aug. 17



    Trailhead by 10 or earlier, wheels up ASAP. Should be a lot of fun!

    It's posted, RSVP if you can.

    Just my 2 Cents, "or earlier" is better. I know it is a haul from the front range, but the activity picked up considerably in the afternoon - both the motorized and hiking crowd was noticeably heavier on our way down. If a group would not have stopped at the bottom of "bowling ball hill" to let us come down, it could have been quite messy giving them the right of way. Again, just MHO.

    I agree the earlier the better, but in any case plan on a long day on the trail just in case. I am 90% sure I can make this run.

    good advice, we'll figure this out closer to the run date. I'd love to get out early, mornings on the trail are magic. If I can I'm going to stay in the area the night or two before.

    I got the day off so I am in. How the heck did you get the calendar set so that it won't take RSVP's?

    Changed.

    There is a checkbox near the bottom left corner of the RSVP window "Allow Users to RSVP". I know of it as it was a box I would accidentally UN-check when editing an RSVP page. It must be an available option to not only the admin but perhaps the person who created the RSVP (and Paul might have UN-checked it w/o realizing - just like me - w/o realizing a few years back).

    I unchecked it this morning and then all hell broke loose. The time was up in the air and no one had committed to the date on the thread so I figured I'd nail down the specifics before anyone said YES to something that would change and annoy them. If I had just waited an hour... I'll change it back, and THANK YOU to everyone who is coming!!!!!!

    looks pretty easy for the most part, seems to be about 1.5 hrs of actual drive time to the lake:

    9 is fine Paul. I was worried when you teased about dawn.
