Friday night, probably staying with my buddy cause it will be dark when we get in town.What did you settle on for Friday/Sat. Most on here are located south of Denver.
That might a bit far north for the time I have this weekend, need to think about it.Friday night, probably staying with my buddy cause it will be dark when we get in town.
Saturday, Argentine pass in the morning, ?? for lunch, Bill Moore for the afternoon and camping
Sunday, Pickle (??), T-33 and then TBD for camping and dinner.
Are you up for a day/afternoon of wheeling?
Wouldn't mind having a contact in the event something goes wrong if anybody is willing to be that contact.
Like most, I use mine for super basic comms on the trail (practicing basic etiquette and am licensed...) but hitting repeaters isn’t something I’m familiar enough to do. Plus my little handheld doesn’t put out the most wattage.That might a bit far north for the time I have this weekend, need to think about it.
As for contacts, do you have a HAM radio and if so know how to use it other than like a CB? I ask because its not the case for too many 4x4 IMHO. If so, I can give you repeater info and a widely used simplex frequency. Other than that use your buddy or calling the sheriffs office is better than relying on someone that may or may be available. Sheriff may wind up calling these guys if you can't get out for some reason.

Luke has more insight on how they coordinate
If it makes you feel better I can PM you my number.
Likewise! I was telling Sylvia that experience is what the Mud and wheeling community is all about. We'll let you guys know the next time we're in the area - a little more in advance this time - so we can plan some more trails.Glad you enjoyed MSV! It’s definitely high on my list of favorite trails. Had a great day meeting and wheeling with you two on Argentine. Couldn’t have asked for a better day.
Also quite impressed with the ATRAC on both the hill climb and where you were flexed out and traction would generally be an issue. It's an impressive system.Great time, will wheel with you anytime. BTW, Luke is @black95 . First time up Argentine for me as well, nice trail.
For the record, I was not stuck in that pic, Luke was checking the brake lines and bump stops as I am still getting used to this build. I was able to test the ATRAC some more on the tailings pile. Loose and steep with a hole at the top. It took a couple of tries but I made it. I’m getting more impressed with ATRAC.
That would be awesome! We enjoyed running with @CO_Hunter last time we were out there. Unfortunately, we can't push the trip back to the 5th. We'll be out there August 30th - September 2nd so if the dates change up a bit, we might make the extra trek to Silverton area.Our club will be doing a San Juan Trip Sept 5-9 (dates may be a bit flexible still). We have a free dispersed camping area (Golden Horn) just north of Silverton. We'll be running different trails (depending on what is open). If you are out here during that time frame, feel free to join us!
