    Any Colorado people in for some light off-roading during the first week in September? I have a spare seat. This is not an invite to take Tundra trucks on, I wouldn't do that to anyone.

    I have the usual suspects coming out from North Carolina again this year, and Colorado has to represent. The one on the back is a Toyota...pretty bad ass to boot.

    Looking to do Holy Cross city south of Leadville, Carnage canyon in Buena Vista, CO.

    Any takers?

    This will be during the week Brian. Damn, I have know you wanted to go for a while. Next season, we are just going to get it done. Plan it, and go. Bring your kids, and I can bring mine.

    What about 9/2/17? We could head out to Moab or Rangely, might be able to do Montrose on that weekend.

    Hmm. Super tempted. I was just looking at pics of Holy Cross. Trail looks like a fun challenge especially in the rigs you're bringing. Usually, I can pull the mid-week sneak aways but let me double check today. Day job is super nutty right now.

    Actually, Holy Cross is an easy (my idea of easy) until French Creek and Cleveland Rock. Great for someone whose likes to do photography. Just beautiful. If you ever go up there, great hiking, but really packed on the weekends. I have heard of people waiting 6 hours to get back across French Creek.

    Carnage Canyon is....well pretty wild.

    Pictures I was looking at were of the French Creek crossing. There are some sizable boulders. I won't be able to pull that stuff off until I get the locker installed. Looks like fun though. And, yes, I'd like to join you for the photographic opportunities.

    KOH wild?

    No takers still.

    Heading out to Montrose Tuesday to tackle Boulder canyon. Leave your panties at home. This is my buddy Jared saving his own ass on this exit.





    10 Falls in Gypsum looked entertaining today....
