    Colorado 4x4 Trip | August 2018

    7/15/2018

    I picked up two more campsites in Grand Junction, CO.

    Just need to find a good site for us to use 2-3 days in Boulder and sites are complete IMO. Boise will most likely be me alone or loitering in stiggies driveway.

    Also if any of you are into photography I highly recommend researching a Lens to rent from Lensrentals. I've used their service before and its pretty straightforward and not too expensive. Allows you to rent 3k Lenses for like $120 for a week.

    If those of us joining from Idaho could let me know what they want to do night of the 28th that would be cool, otherwise I'll camp nearby or in someones driveway.

    If all of you could start PM'ing me your phone numbers and what vehicle and camping setup you intend to bring that would be nice, as of now we have 2 sites booked, the most important sites in Ouray, CO. For boulder there is seemingly a lot of walk up sites, but I may try to book something for real around there too. Grand Junction is still a toss up as its not really a popular camping area, but I'm also sure that means it should be easy to find something on the road in or out of town.

    Ill handle getting the rest of the sites over the next few weeks, Ill begin to make more and more posts about what will be useful to bring, and some sights we can see so its not just entirely 4x4'ing, some light breaks in-between.

    OP

    Did some actual homework and started planning this trip that has been mentioned in some of the 4x4 threads here on r3v. I have a pretty set period of time I think would work best for me and potentially most of you who are interested.

    The dates I have planned for are the 28th of August to the 3rd of September, with the actual wheeling portion of the trip taking place from the 30th of August to the 3rd of September.

    To start closing out the details of this trip I'm going to need fairly firm answers on who is coming and who isn't, to try and plan for some campsite reservations as we will be camping at 2 sites over the trip. One site near Ouray, CO, and the second site spanning most of the trip near Boulder, CO.

    Below is a simple image depicting the plan, me coming from Bellingham will have to start on the 28th, meeting anyone near Boise the 29th, and arriving in Grand Junction that night to start the next morning the 30th.


    Please post your interest below, and any trail suggestions around boulder that we could look into doing for the majority of the trip.

      But for reals. We seem to have a pretty solid general plan. The big items left are finding a campsite that works well around the Boulder area (probably west of Boulder, further up into the mountains), and also finding the trails we want to do while we're up in the Boulder area.

      I'm gonna start calling around various, cool looking campsites to see how their reservations work. While we would all prefer to find camping off the side of a trail in a cool location, the practicality of that becomes an issue once there are multiple people, and more importantly, multiple vehicles. So, Will and I thought it's probably best to reserve a place, and on the off chance we find something really cool on the side of a trail, we can just eat the cost of a campground. No biggie.

      So, what this entails is... we really do need a list of people that are committed to the trip. This will also help us determine the schedule for the time up around the Boulder area. It doesn't matter to me since I live close by, but planning departure times for everyone else is important.

              Wish I could commit to this, I would love to make this trip, but I am 99% sure I will be working a job when this is going to happen. I will try and make it if my other commitments will allow.....

                How serious of trails are you looking at? Any specific routes you're leaning towards?

                If it's something I can take my F150 through without destroying it, I would look into moving my vacation days to meet up with you guys.

                    This would be a nice meetup, if I'm not in Germany the weeks before I would consider joining in. Won't know for awhile though.

                            Making me regret selling my Jeep. Sadly my soccer mom mobile Honda Pilot isn't really a 4X4 by any stretch of the imagination.

                              I too will have an open seat, and will be joining in from Northern Arizona.
