It's up to you
Ed, you do know that we are not hanging with santa up here.

I'd love to tag along Ed. Let me know the details on where to meet up later this week. Sorry northerners I'd love to go with you guys also but don't think I'll have the energy to drive that far. :-(

Where in Larimer are you headed? Did you ever join the Front Range 4x4 club?

Well, I don't know if it will be fun, but with me as tour guide I can guarantee it will be interesting ...

Ostensibly we will be checking out the bunny trails north of Divide to see what trail conditions are for a future fun run.

Thing is that it is very easy to get sidetracked and end up over in Wildcat Canyon...

Let me know if you're interested and I will plan the itinerary accordingly

ther is not a lot open up here this time of the year so we are going to hit sevenmile creek. I believe there are 4 of us total right now. Mo1416;Bonovox;myself;and an add from mike. so it should be a fun trip. There are some rookies with me and just trying to get them out there and experienc some stuff sor the feel of it all. Ed is taking a group by divide on a scouting trip for a run in 2 weeks so we can get the new guys some more experiene on that side. You in?
I went to the meeting and still haven't decided yet. The Mrs healing up OK I hope?

I joined the front range forum. They seem like good people. Kinda takes from the fun of wrangler clubs though. Well I just need to focus on the wheeling not the brand of rig everyone drives.

Yes. I love my little TJ. But I would be just as happy driving an FJ40 or a tricked out early Bronco. Wheeling is about wheeling. Not what brand of rig you wheel in. I wave at Jeeps, sometimes, depends. I will give a wave to a built 'Yota, or early Bronco, or Scout. I like all of them and respect what they do.

It's the sport, not the brand

Of course, I probably better stick with Wrangler Colorado I seriously doubt that the Bronco crowd would put up with a fraction of the crap I throw out here...

Lets meet at I-25 and HWY 52 (Dacono/Fort lupton). there is a resuraunt called the Pepper Jacks on the west side if I-25 at 9am if you want to have breakfast 10 AM if you dont. I will be there at 9. I'll go ahead and set up an official post titled seven mile and see if we can get some more.

I would say allow 3-4 hours out and back. might be less but I wouldnt figure anything less than that. No need to rush when your wheeling.
