    Looking pretty good for me to join you guys.

    Most likely will have to meet first thing Saturday Morning for Wheeler Lake depending on how early you want to start. I think its just over two hours for me to get to Brek, so add another half hour to get over that pass there. I could leave Friday after work if I had to.

    I should be game for Sunday as well, even if you are planning on working your way back to the front range. Maybe you guys could confim, but if I continue on Webster by myself after doing Red Cone I would end back up at Montezuma? That would work out pretty well.

    Brett

    Hey Wishbone,

    I forgot that this trip is the same time that wifey and I are going on our anniversary roadtrip. SO... count me out on this one. Let me know if you head out again, though!

    Sorry guys, I'm gonna have to bail too. The girlfriend made plans that I was suppose to know about or something....
































    Oh wait, I don't have a girlfriend, more time for wheelin! :D
    James, when you solidify your Saturday Morning plans, let me know. I'm game for meeting in Breckenridge or at the trailhead, or wherever. Will probably stop in Breck to grab gas and a few other things though.

    :woot:

    Will do, plan is still to run Wheeler and then head up to Crystal lakes Saturday, and then Sunday I am thinking Georgia pass over to 285 and then Red Cone. I am going to update the first post with meeting times and places for the various legs. Sunday will probably be a later start at Red Cone, it is going to take us a while to get over there, I will tentatively say 10:30 am at the lot before the trail on the left.

    Exactly, back to Hall Valley and return to 285. I stay as far away from 70 as possible as well.
