Pending rehab we may go again, but might fly- too soon to say.

Which route and any side trips planned?

route is TBD, but will be hitting Denver either enroute or coming back to visit a friend, with some gratuitous colorado outdoor time enroute. We intend to camp the entire trip. This is a dry run trip testing our gear set before a Central America run. Intend to get my HAM license while there too.

Enroute excursions still TBD. If you fly in, you are welcome to roll with my possy. We are all single driver vehicles right now. It's still early in planning stage and confirming committments.

Pushing for it this year, but rest of family somewhat divided. If they don't go, would like to arrive early and try some of the trails near area.

and well deserved with my smart ass remark to your offer of assistance. I'll bet you guys know some trails I've missed too! I'd like to have a beer with Dsource members in the crown king pub while out there with whoever is in!

I'm planning to get there thur when camping opens to get good spots together.

I'm not driving 2k miles to go to bed early. Cigars and rum til I pass out by the fire is my plan.
