less than 24 hrs will be above Ouray at Ironton Park area.
Flint, if ya come up, bring that rear bumper, the one I have is 3 piece and will have to have different brackets to fit this thing, don't see it going on as it is.
Come get drunk and I'll cover ya up with a blanket or whatever I find.
For those that can't make it up here, it must suck to be you. LOL
No really, wish ya'll could make it, last long weekend before it snows. Weather is to be real nice this weekend.

I think I'm going to be out for this trip. I'm having wicked neck pain and don't think bouncing around in the mountains is going to help.

Hey Phil - The bumper is on my GW still and do want it gone. I can pull it while I am hanging with the Attitude of Altitude and even put it on yours if you have good brackets. When am I coming to Ironton? When I get there.

Ryan - you going to zip up and hang too?

I wish Krista was up for this. I understand the neck deal though, good golly, my migraines and all that... I am sending her soft, warm {{{hugs}}}.

Ride On

Heck, sure, I'll take the 3 pc. I need to build a nicer front one for the J20.
I am planning to be at the camp spot Saturday afternoon/eve. We'll get some elevation by Sunday.

Nope..steering on the jeep is still messed up, no $$ for the gas tank, and the Pontiac's going to the dealership next week, it's all jacked up too. Oh well.

campers packed and believe I am ready to go.
One more run around the house to see what I forgot and will get out of here by noon, be there around 2-230.
got the bumper Flint, wished Krista could enjoy it also.
Heck put a strong neck brace on her and I got enough straps we could tie her in so tight she'd never move!!

Sounds like my kind of trip!

As for me, I'd just be happy to get off the pavement once this year...
