"If you want a shorter day, it could be an in-and-out, turning back at the chutes,"
that just means less trail time for the same amount of hwy driving...its the hwy driving that I was originally trying to keep to a minimum - and will probably get stuck in rush hour on the way home, but Jen is working late Fri I believe.
Weather looks perfect, so I'd say lets give it a go, then I will spend the weekend winterizing the house and jeep before heading out of town (and maybe a ski day on Monday). Best place to meet at Ted's place at hwy 14 and 287? I am good with an early start, although I will have over a 2 hour drive to get to Teds and probably will need some gas there as well.
