    Why don't we go wheeling locally, maybe in the Puerco and get Stacey familiar with this hobby? There is no reason to bash her Taco so don't implant that type of thinking into her head! Have her purchase a recovery kit, first aid kit (for humans+dogs), air comp as well as a fire extinguisher and these things can stay in the vehicle full time. I think she has ample under rear seat storage.

    That's good news Steve and Bruce. Unfortunately, I can't edit my posts anymore.

    Ouray News.... Stace and I did a flyby through Ouray on our Gunnison/Crested Butte/Montrose trip. 4J was dead quiet and empty as of the 15th.
    The hot springs are getting a face lift!

    Still lots of snow of course, Black Bear had snow up to the road.
    [​IMG][​IMG]My Uber awesome Babe and her new truck! Truck performed stellar, no surprises there.
    Runnoff was very strong everywhere, rivers were fast and muddy. Oddly, Ridgway Reservoir was very low however.
    Thinking about going up a day early and camping at Molas Pass and Lake
    [​IMG] Black Canyon outside of Montrose (one hour from Ouray)-- 2,700ft deep and 40 yards wide at narrowest point- super twisty, steep, narrow decent to the river and campgrounds below.
    [​IMG]Planning on doing a mountain bike ride through Ironton Park Nordic Trails at some point if anyone wants to join.
