For those joining the Convoy this year I'll fill you in.
We have plenty of room for you to camp out here. Have restrooms and a shower also. All are welcome to stay or get a room in town.
Saturday night will be on BLM land near the Great SandDunes NP. It is primitive with no facilities. It is a dark sky preserve and the stars are amazing. We will be fueling up Sunday morning in Alamosa CO if anyone wants to stay there.
From there to Classic Cruisrs and lunch at Elevation Brewery just down the road from his shop. Up and over Monatch Pass and the Continental Divide to Gunnison. Shooting for a late afternoon arrival at the KOA.

I want to do it again but can't get out of work a day early unfortunately. I'm gonna try to push hard across to make Classic Cruisers on Sunday and see y'all there. Will jump in line at that point. Towing my 60. That great plains stretch is just too much with so little time to enjoy the ride!

It actually looks like I’m going to have to pull out this year. Not just from the convoy but from SAS altogether.

I’m sure there’s a waiting lister out there that would be thrilled to hear about the opportunity 10+ days before the event.

Also, I have a 3 night/4 day (Aug 1-Aug 4, site 55) res at the KOA that is up to the highest bidder. Maybe someone in here is interested?


UPDATE: They just canceled my res so no way of transferring. 055 is available as of right now.

Is this only open to SAS 100’s? I have a mostly stock lx450. I’d be interested in at least the trip to overnight at Great Sand Dunes.

A 10:30 am or so arrival in Alamosa, plus time for fuel, would put you at Classic Cruisers right at noon. Kay and I could easily time it to tag along behind the convoy from Alamosa - we'll probably be driving the truck and camper on this trip, and maybe towing the FJ60. Does the timing seem about right?

LX 450 is basically a 80 with extra doodads and whizbangs. If you would like to hang out with the group at the Dunes and or Salida please do. We are a very welcoming group.

That should be real close John. We usually fill up at the Loaf and Jug at the corner of hwy 160 and hwy 70.

Casey, I am doing what I can to find trades/vacation/coverage for my work. Beer and cash doesn't barter like it used to
Im about 50/50 that I can make this trip happen but will let you know either way as soon as I find out. Fingers crossed
