    There's designated prerunning days where everything is open. They basically let you run wherever you want as long as you stay off the course on race days and off the qualifying course on qualifying days. Between king of the motos, UTVs, EMC, and unlimited class, the week of the races is pretty much shot. We were able to go prerun cougar buttes and a couple of the rock trails, but being that I was running around with wrenches in my hand I didn't get too many opportunities to go drive the trails myself. Unfortunately I couldn't take more than a week off of work, so my time out there was limited to focusing on the race. I'd love to get my truck out there again to go run those trails

    They're the old school Coleman stoves. As I understand it, white gas is just gasoline without any additives. I have the green 2 burner and I bought one of the single burner stoves for making coffee in the morning.

    https://www.coleman.com/camp-kitche...ries-powerhouse-414-stove/COL_3000003655.html

    https://www.coleman.com/camp-kitche...s-compact-dual-fuel-stove/COL_3000003654.html

    There is an adapter for the two burner so you can use propane too.

    The nice thing is that they can run regular unleaded. I tested it out with the ethanol free from Murphys and it works just as good.

    White gas is more wind resistant. The only experience I have with it is for my MSR pocket rocket (don't mind the name). It heated up coffee all hunting season with ~40mph sustained winds. Coffee didn't do shit to warm me up most days tho :p

    Edit / Correction: I have the WhisperLite burner. The Pocket Rocket is similar to a Jetboil.

    What’s the best dealer in the Denver area?

    I just went to have my ToyotaCare service done. I am very religious about keeping up on my maintenance.

    I have about 70k miles. I went in today for the standard service and the service guy comes out, greets me and says I’ll get the usual oil change, tire rotation, inspection, etc. no big deal, right? I showed him the wheel lock key was in the console and then asked a question that appeared to give the guy a hard reset.

    I told him that I was very OCD and asked if he could ask the tech that should the center caps fall out during the rotation, if they could orient them in a certain way. I showed him how they already were and said all they have to do is make sure it’s rotated correctly.

    He told me to hold on, left and then came back and advised me that tire rotations weren’t covered under my specific ToyotaCare package. I thought that was weird but turned over the keys and proceeded to wait the 1.5 hours it took them to do a 15 minute oil change.

    During my wait, looked up ToyotaCare online and saw that tire rotations were covered. When my truck was done, I went to the dudes desk. As I waited for him to print up the invoice, I saw one of those tabletop standup cards advertising ToyotaCare. On both packages, they both included tire rotations. I asked him again if tire rotations were covered. He said no, I have the “classic” package which does not cover tire rotations.
    I picked up the card and showed it to him saying, “that’s funny because according to your own card here it does.” He stumbled a bit and said bc I bought it from a different dealer, they sold me a different package. To which I pointed out why would their dealership accept another dealers in-house package if that were true. Plus I have never had a problem with it until now.

    he continued to say it wasn’t covered.

    I left and called the previous dealer who said he was on crack and it was the standard ToyotaCare package. I called ToyotaUSA customer service who apologized for him and said that tire rotations were indeed covered.

    Not that tire rotations are a big thing, but these bastards want to skate out of something as simple as a tire rotation, what other shortcuts are they taking?

    simply out I don’t ever wanna go back.

    Sorry. This is why I do almost all of my own work. Last night I was laying on the 29 degree concrete on a sheet of cardboard draining my diffs and transfer case…

    Cool. I spent many years as a mechanic. I’d rather pay people to do it for me.

    This is a simple case of charging for a service and then not performing said service.

    I used an MSR white gas stove for years for my backpacking load out until I got caught in a bad August storm and couldn't light the stove inside the tent vestibule without setting myself on fire. I had hypothermia because of it and barely made it back out.

    I switched to a SOTO propane stove and haven't looked back but I still have the pocket rocket and fuel for it on hand. The SOTO out performs a jet boil at high altitude and on winter trips because it keeps the can pressurized as you go through fuel. It does need wind shelter if there's too much wind but I found that true of all stoves to some degree.

    OK. I have seen those (and had one in the family as a kid) just didn’t realize that was what the fuel was called. I can deal with propane for cooking, especially knowing they make panties for them now, but it’s propane fires that suck more than they should.
    Im glad your pocket rocket warmed you up.

    I didn't have any issues with Mountain States Toyota off I25 and US36 in my one and only time taking a vehicle in for service. I took the valve stem caps off the front wheels to see if they'd rotate the tires and when they gave the truck back to me, all tires had caps on them so I have no idea if they rotated them or not. I'm assuming so since they noticed two of the tires were missing caps lol.

    I love my powerhouse stove. Works better than propane stoves when it's cold out.

    If you were going to take a week off in two weeks, where would you go within 6-8 hrs of Denver (excluding snowboarding/skiing)?
    It's my wife and I and 2 teenagers.
    Just trying to go somewhere new and figured someone might have a good idea.

    Lifted, Armored, needs more lights.
    Tossing out winter sports, its Moab or New Mexico (Carlsbad, White Sands, Chaco or Bandelier, Roswell).

    But I agree, if Mexico is letting people in go where its Warm. :thumbsup:
