Today we went to Yankee Boy Basin, and over Imogene Pass to Telluride, then came back through Ophir Pass. (On the trip to CO yesterday, the new BFG KMs were smooth enough at 75mph to read a book :xozzy: )

Jamie just left... we sorted through 1,015 and got it down to 651. They're exporting/uploading now, so I should be able to post some and a link to the rest in the morning.

And thanks again to Jamie for letting me ride shotgun, and to everyone else we met up with up there. Good times! Even if the hostess didn't wanna hear anything about it... :rolleyes:

No, he's fine, I saw pics of him wheeling afterward. They said no major damage or injuries or anything! I just wanted to hear from him wtf happened. They said it was on a fairly steep and long downhill, and it just came off, bounced around, ran over his hood while passing him?:eek:

Here's Sy's pics
http://s78.photobucket.com/albums/j110/symon623/Colorado8108/

He said it happened pretty much like you posted, the wheel just came off...no tire changes for a couple months! He stole a lug or two from the other wheels, then found some replacements in Ridgeway (I think)

He leaned in the fenderwell to check for damage and without thinking put his hand on the rotor when he was going to look behind it. Pics on the second page shows the burn:eek:

That sucks, no vibration or anything before it came off? I wonder if someone decided they wanted his wheels/tires and got scared off before removing all the lugs or something?

IIRC, he said the steering response was weird just before it happened. Once he retrieved the wheel, he put it back on, the holes weren't fubar-ed too bad. He was surprised the sheetmetal on the truck wasn't damaged more than it was.

Very nice pics! Man that sucks about the dodge.

I`m planning a trip to Moab & Ouray in a couple months. Was Black Bear open? Last year it was closed most of the season. Imogene is really cool, highlight of last years trip.

You stay in Gunnison?-that little cabin looks like a place near Gunnison.

We stayed in Ouray, and Black Bear was open. Both Imogene and Hurricane Passes were really calm this time...barely a breeze.

Well the week has been bad ass so far, outside of the adventure getting here. We were an hour away and my truck decided to try doing it on 3 wheels....:eek:

No major damage to speak of.

We did Poughkeepsie/Cal Pass to Silverton on Saturday, got stuck in road destruction on Red Mountain pass on the way back to Ouray, thats why we were late to dinner with Mark, Loren and the other TTORA guys. Good seein and meetin you guys

Sunday was Engineer to the summit, then back down to Animas Forks up Cal pass backwards then over Huricane and over to Corkscrew.

Monday we did Yankeeboy to the top, started up Governor but there was a snowfield blocking the road so we went up to Sydney Basin.

Today we did Black Bear and Imogene.

Tomorrow is rest day to check out Box Canyon and Cascade falls as well as the amphitheatre and just basically relax.

Not sure what we're doin thursday and friday before coming home saturday as long as the tow rig stays together.

One guy broke a couple of upper link bolts on a TJ and were found and fixed in camp. Other than that no carnage.

It has rained every day and it seems to come sooner and harder everyday.

Pics are in my Photobucket;
