    Default Up in Allenspark



    Hello wheeling folks,
    I've lived, played and have worked in the front range mountains for almost 4 decades now. I love putting the tent on the Jeep and just taking off for a while. My days off are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so I'm hoping some of you like to wheel during the week when not many other folks are out.

    Last week I got the joy of removing a tree that was blocking Bunce School Rd. I couldn't believe no one else had done it, it was like winning the lottery.

    Welcome to the group! I've been here less than a year, but I've certainly seen some runs during the week. We have some retirees and folks with flexible schedules it seems. Sweet rig, hope to meet you out there sometime!

    Cool, we're practically neighbors. Unfortunately Saturday's and Sundays require me to work. I'll keep an eye out for you Powerwagon and give you a Jeep wave.

    Welcome. I retired a year ago in Jan. Can go wheeling anytime. Not much into snow wheeling though, so donít do much in the winter.

    So, either I'm not crazy or we're both crazy - I have the same mentality (and carry a chain saw). Riding trails, where a fallen tree was not cut back fully - I think - I should stop and take that back another couple feet.

    Don't cut them back too far...55" is all the trail width you need...

    Congratulations on your retirement. I don't mind wheeling in the snow as long as it's not to deep. If there's a semi deep drift that I feel semi confident I won't get stuck I'll give it a try. I look forward to wheeling with you during the week.

    Crazy Jim? I don't think so, normal is what I would say. The crazies are the ones who turn around. I leave my chainsaw at home. Trees in the road just do not happen often enough for me to justify bringing my chain saw.

    Welcome! Good job trimming and moving the tree, looks like a decent amount of work went into that.
