Less then 2 months to go until the Rally.
Remember there is a late for for registrations/payments received after 21 July.
If you haven't registered yet please do. We need a good head count for the various caterers.
Big list of vendors and sponsors this year. Lots of great prizes for the raffle.
We testing out a couple new ideas this year, driver training and a GPS course for example.
We have arrange a large tent for the Vendor Expo and the banquette dinner so plenty of room.
The Expo will have food provided (cookout) and there will be a cash bar set up (first two drinks provided by Off-Rovering).
LRNA is sponsoring the banquette diner.
We have also arrange a shuttle bus to run between the evening social events (Thur, Fri, & Sat) and the Rally hotels.
It's going to be an excellent Rally this year. With over 30 different trails to run over a wide spectrum of difficulty, and 3 nights of social activities.
Thanks again to all of our Sponsors and Venders.

You have less then two weeks to pay for registration without incurring the 30$ late fee.
Anything received after 21 July will need to have the additional $$.

AR,

I've been reading about Black Bear Pass and a couple of sources have said not to attempt it with a full size vehicle because of the final switchback going into Telluride. Is it truly too difficult for a stick-shift D-110?

Thanks,

Doug W.

When starting down Black Bear Pass a few years ago, I noticed a (very stock looking) Suburban parked at the top, while it's occupants enjoyed a picnic lunch. About an hour later, I saw the same truck driving down the main street in Telluride.

Doug,
the 110 is considered a medium size vehicle. It is still a relatively short wheel base when compared to the full size pickups, suburbans, excursions, etc. You will have no problems.

I've seen it done in a full size pick up truck. You will be fine First time scared the crap out of me. It's easier now (literally due to trail improvement).

Another question for anyone who has shipped their truck with McNutt or another shipper -- any hassles about the truck being loaded with equipment boxes and off road gear? Any issues with that?

No worries Doug. I followed this 110 through Black Bear back in 2000. He made it through no problem. This is on the way up to the fun bit.

Black Bear Switch Backs

I preran trails for the Rally over the 4th of July long weekend. Black Bear was closed, but got a great view of the trail from Imogene, (the planned return from blackbear).

It was STILL closed due to snow on the 4th.

Cheers

Mike

I think so. It is so easy to just hitch it up and throw all my gear in. I dont have to oganize, climb on a rack or pack so much crap in the back. And now I can get a beer out of the cooler without unpacking 1/2 the truck.

Still trying to decide if I am going to camp a couple of days before the rally, so I may take the tent off.

Cheers

Mike

We are extending the registration dead line to Monday July 23rd. After Monday morning, all registrations payments will be assessed a $30 late fee. Please get the check in the mail today. Or PayPal. And if you haven't even registered yet...get to it :D

Is anyone interested in running Holy Cross on Sunday August 19th on the way back from Montrose? It is about 20 minutes south of Vail off of I-70.

I can't go to the Rally but I would like to try Holy Cross again this year. there are a lot of camping and hotel options around here.
