The Colorado Chapter has basically stepped up and said they would like to host the 2007 TakeOver. Last I heard they were doing the research as far as permits/fees/staging goes. I was under the impression that they were close to having some info to give to me but have not heard anything as of yet. We will have a date a location locked down here soon I can promise you that. By soon I mean before the turn of the new year.
It will be in/around Buena Vista, CO. There are a WIDE variety of trails around there
(Go to www.4x4trails.net and search on Chaffee County and/or Arapahoe National Forest)
DriftinCO is heading up the Takeover planning. Questions should be directed to him.
ryguy - snow around here is a major problem for 4Wheeling - it closes most of the trails! Some of the trails we are looking at MAY still have snow on them in the summer.
Note that 'wheeling in Colorado is different in a lot of ways compared to what most people are used to. Some of these trails will be at over 10,000 ft elevation! The engine produces A LOT less power up there. The weather in CO, and especially at high elevation is notoriously fickle. Some of these trails, you may need to be prepared to hunker down overnight if weather comes in. It all pays off though with the most amazing views in the country. The song "America the Beautiful" was written after seeing the view from Pikes Peak (14k+ feet elevation)
the buena vista area is absolutly awesome. great views and trails. may is a hard time been there twice in may and one time half the trails were closed due to snow, the other it was open all the way to the top! and it can come in on top of you in a heart beat.
I will post up when we get read to head that direction. Most likely going to stay in the Salida, Gunneson, Beuna Vista area. Some where between Durango and Colorado Springs, so we can go either way and still do some shopping in between.
