New to CO board, but been on TTORA over a year. frequent pot stirrer on teh AZ board and occasionally on the WA board. I'm originally from WA. Moved to AZ in 2000.

Just got back from a week in Ouray. Was my 3rd trip but my g/f's first. last time I went was about 4 years ago for a couple of days at a time. Went to Montrose the previous 2 times as well. Die tryin was our mission in Montrose. the new group I went with this year have done Ouray every year for like 6 years so we are talkin about some new stuff next year, Ouray for a few days, Montrose for a couple, maybe Leadville? or GJ? I'm here to research some areas.

here's my junk, specs are in my sig line;
In Moab

(sorry, can't find directions!)

2 days in Buena Vista, Carnage, Iron Chest, others

Wow, thanks alot Redrunner..... That Holy Cross trail is badass in teh write ups on here. I know where teh Montrose trails are. Well I know where Die ryin is. :D

We'll will definately take this list into consideration. You didn't leave much time for travel between trails? Also we'll all be in campers/trailered rigs and in need of camp areas.

Good lord man! nice pic (the one that's in your avatar). I gotta be there when you try Cleveland Rock on HC.
Thanks, it was taken by a friend who is a photographer by hobby. he got some awesome shots while in Moab. I have a 20 x 30 poster of it as well. It looks alot more dramatic than it was.

It is teh bigger of the 3 hot tubs on Hells revenge.

Montrose -> BV -> Indy -> HC -> GJ

Longest leg is Montrose -> BV I think.

EDIT: Checked on Mapquest, each leg is between 2-3 hrs

Awesome Thanks Mang. Thats the route I figured, the other was BV -> Indy -> HC -> GJ -> Montrose then it's just 10 hours home...... :(

The big problem with this trip in my mind is not breaking your shit so you can do the whole thing!
Most of the guys comin are built well and drive light...... teh specs on my junk are in my sig line.... it holds up pretty well. :rolleyes:

Hopefully we can get a guide at each trail to make life easier? maybe show us teh right lines and not the wrong ones. :D
