Jeep Fire Aid Ride discussion

Alright, where do you guys think we should go.

Likely age of the kids will be Jr. High -> High School. So keep that in mind.

Also, no crazy shit, we need everyone to be able to get home....

Also, at the moment it's an idea of being a day trip. So places like BV are not out of the question.

Think scenic and not on fire and not in/around the springs.

Phantom canon and shelf road. Only issue I see with phantom is my wife read that people are stopping an robbing people. I roll armed but I don't think that's a spot anyone wants to get in especially with kids along for the ride.

Anywhere that we'd need to "roll armed" is not a good choice.

Did the whole central city area a while back... Super, Super bumpy/rocky ride. Trying to find a less rocky trail and a more dirt trail.

It would be a boring ride if no one tried to rob us. But back on topic There's also old stage road out to cripple creek.

Good ole BV is gonna pipe in now too. Been thinking about trying to do this trip too. If the trip is somewhere near me up here in the BV area I would love to help out too. So far we don't have any fires up here so the scenery would be nice. A trip in the St elmo area would be beautiful like going to Pomory lake or Hancock lake. Both are near to each other too. These trails can be done by stock Jeeps. For the more hard core guys there is Grizzly lake and Iorn Chest mine too. If you do decide to come up here I would just need to have someone bring a rider or 2 to the meeding place.

Thanks
BV Jeep

Looks like you are going to be going on a Saturday. Well not sure if I can do a Saturday. If it is on a Sunday I would consider it.

Update for you guys:

So far I've gotten a lot of positive response however the main concern and one that really can't be bypassed is that if a church helps connect us to people then they in a sense are vouching for us. This is an issue for them due to many obvious reasons. They would need info on ALL of you if you were going to be driving a Jeep. And honestly I don't have the time to do all that leg work. I was hoping to see if we could make this happen but it was always a long shot.

Bummer, but I'm not overly surprised. WVC still seemed interested in the idea because they apparently do a Motorcycle ride every summer and they never thought of doing a Jeep ride. They also have 25% of the total loss victims in their congregation. So this still has a small chance of happening in a way. But at the moment it's looking slim.

Regardless, thanks a ton for all the support. Would have been fun.

Also on the bummer side, I was thinking about personal liability. Do we make our passengers sign waivers and what not? Not sure if that is necessary, but in today's age, there is always the reality of legal ramifications for injury's.

Waivers are always a must. Especially if most of the riders are children.. Parents sign there kids life away and were good. Helmets are an option as well.
