    Default Need to get on a trail this weekend....



    I had a horrible week, my brand new Jeep went in for lift, winch, wheels/tires, some skid plates.... basic stuff. Came out looking great but throwing codes and now in limp mode and going to be towed to dealership to investigate. Not getting into the details until things are fixed and resolved, but super not happy that I cannot even use my new and built Jeep for the second weekend after getting outfitted for wheeling'

    Luckily for me, I still have a nicely built TJ and my loved and trusted Powerwagon. I decided to keep the TJ for now since the JL is full of problems at the moment and I don't trust it to pickup some milk at the corner grocery shop (yesterday it went into limp mode every few hundred feet and is un-drivable in its current state).

    So, I need to get out to the mountains and wheel this weekend! I'd be up for an early morning MSV/Coney Flats (to avoid crowds), Kinston Peak, Miners gulch (for the TJ) would be fun along with other Rollinsville area trails........

    Anyone up for some wheeling' up off the Peak-to-Peak highway? I'm up for either day, prefer early to avoid people or late afternoon run would be cool also!

    Might be camping Sat night down near Leadville if we join the Clohesy Lake run. I imagine the power wagon would be just fine for a night of camping on that trail.

    If I don't end up going to Leadville, some of the trails you mentioned would be good.

    That does suck, hope it's not costing you anything more than time and patience. I'm interested for either day, especially MSV / Coney.

    Depends where you want to go, I'm in NW Denver so it might take me some time to get to the trailhead. Whatever you come up with I'll try to make happen, morning or afternoon.

    Let me find out which day my wife prefers & get back to you. Id love to run MSV either early or late. 7-730am start would avoid most of the crowds but it is pretty early. 4 or 5pm is when Most others are heading home for dinner and wed finish around sunset so the lighting would be great. Wed likely see some others but not as much as late morning to late afternoon. Any preference on an early morning or early evening run?

    Afternoon actually sounds fun, I haven't been on an evening trail run in a while.

    There's a "maybe" to me being able to join. The kick with IT is that system changes can happen at low use hours... evenings / overnight / weekends

    That's great, probably the best time for me too. I'd bet on a Sunday afternoon it will be empty.

    I like those Grabbers. Whatever you bring will be fine, all your vehicles are beasts. This is one of my favorite trails on the frontrange, I'm looking forward to it.

    I remember a couple of years ago these guys stacked a couple of hundred rocks at the gatekeeper to get through.

    Yes this is one of my favorite trails also. I anticipate there will be a lot of water crossings and the lake will be the deepest Ive seen in years (based on all the rain weve been getting). Im looking forward to this!
