    I just added a vehicle limit of 8. IMO that is only prudent.

    The first 8 confirmed yes' on the sign up page. Maybes don't count as a yes...

    Any committed 'yes' folks willing to take a passenger? It's been years since I've been in the hills and will be coming up to visit my kids & grandkids. I honestly don't know my availability but would love to get in on this run if possible and if I find I can breathe at altitude.

    I have room. Would you be able to meet at Keystone parking? Otherwise Golden at Hwy 6 and 93 parking area?

    We had chatter/noise issues on frs 4 on Kinston Peak, so I have added privacy code 14 to the frs channel for this run.

    Also saw snow drift at the top of Webster Pass has been shoveled clear by side by side off road.

    Its a week out but the weather forecast on weather.com is 40% chance of thunderstorms beginning about noon. Day before is a 70% chance. I am not certain upper Webster’s South side would be safe after that much rain knowing how narrow and off camber it is.

    Just my .02

    I just noticed the parking area I was thinking of just West of the light at 93 and 6 just as you enter clear creek canyon is closed. So if Golden area is best we’ll have to figure out where.

    I'm might be running Red Cone from the 285 side, I was Planning on camping at Twin Cone and running Red Cone/Webster on Saturday. It is tentative due to I'm in the middle of welding in mid-frame stiffiners.

    I was going to meet someone up there in the morning, do a little shake down on Friday evening (Twin Cone) came there meet him Saturday morning. He lives in Bailey. That's if it works out.
    Looking like you will meet the 8 rig limit anyway. Just hope to do Red Cone this year. And Twin Cone because that's one that they may close. (I heard)?

    i believe it is all but closed. You can go through the private property, then it is closed? Make sure to check the MVUM.

    I also believe Twin Cone has been closed at the end of the private property access - which is basically the 2wd dirt road portion.

    There is no gate or closed sign at the closure. There may be some sign just after the entrance. If you hit tree line you are for sure passed the closure.

    I made that mistake back in 2017. You don’t want to make the same one. Maybe call the forest service.

    quote from trail damage
    "This had to be the first time we went to a trail with some regret. We knew that Twin Cone had drastically changed since we saw it, with a permanent closure in the middle before the obstacles and the big view at the top. We've lost some favorite trails over the years, but Twin Cone had to be the biggest loss for us. We had to see it for ourselves, so we headed out to run it at the start of our day."

    I'm basically going up there to camp close to the Red Cone. Might just camp and then hike some of Colorado trail Friday evening. Still not sure if I'll do Red Cone. Just want to drive my Xj after I put it back together. I have a camping/overlanding trip planned for the following weekend and don't want any surprises. Seems like my old jeep has needed a lot of attention lately.
