2010 Ouray FSJ Invasion - July 21-23, 2010



Hey Y'all - Time to start planning for 2010. This will be year 11 above the timberline in the San Juan Mountains for Krista and I and we enjoy your company on the trails up there every summer!

Plan to be checked in to the KOA by Tuesday evening (July 20) because we start hitting the trails Wednesday morning.

We have set aside some tent sites at the KOA again. They will be held open for FSJ Invasion attendees until at least the end of December 2009. Please remember: if you cancel less than 48 hours before your arrival date, you pay KOA for at least two nights. Your bill with KOA is your responsibility. Here is the KOA web site: OURAY KOA We recommend you reserve your KOA site by contacting Dave by email or call 1-800-KOA-8026 and ask for Dave. The office is open 8AM to 10PM until Labor Day. When you contact the KOA, tell them you are with the Full Size Jeep Group (not FSJ group).

FSJ Invasion set aside sites: 44, 45, 46, 46A, 47A through F, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51



Please post up here or PM me when you reserve a KOA site. THANKS!


As always, bring your low range or park your big dawg at the KOA.

I signed up for site 56. I received confirmation of the reservation (automated) but not for my specific site request...

I may rent a trailer from Montrose. Anyone want to make a few bucks and pull it to/from the camp for me???

No, I thought Ralph liked 47? I guess it's a mystery for now...

I may have screwed up then.
I had Dave reserve 47 for us thinking that's where we were in 2008.
We can switch with someone if that's a problem but Dave confirmed for us yesterday afternoon that Tad = 47 for July 21-23, 2010.

Not sure Bryan or BethAnn have been checking in here much lately. It still amazes me they came to Ouray FSJ Invasion on their honeymoon. It would be good to have you back out Jesse.

Mainly lurking. Work's been absolutely crazy for both of us and doesn't show any signs of improving. We're still here, though!

Jesse, I believe you spoke w/ my dad in Joplin a while back. I'll PM you my cell #. A caravan would be nice. We're hoping to make it out to Ouray again this year and if all goes well, with my dad this time since he didn't make it all the way last year.

Let's all hope for the best!

tentatively thinking about giving it a go this year ... probably need to make some trial road trips and overnight stays with baby girl first to see how it goes...

Hoot, try to get 49. It's a good sized site, the shade is good throughout the day and you can park the tow rig across the road on the edge of the grassy area if need be. I know it's closer to those NE rabble-rousers but they were in that site my first year and I remember they had 2 good-sized tents plus a screen tent, a FSJ and tow rig with trailer and didn't look cramped at all.

Go for 49, man! 41-46 are in fact smaller. I was in 45 one year with one tent and 2 FSJ's. Had plenty of room for that, but that's about it. It was pretty sunny in the afternoon too. I may try for 45 next year.

Ed: Actually, 47E might do you well too. I don't recall how big it is but plenty of parking for your rigs.
