Pulled this excerpt from colorado4x4.org:

"The 11th Annual Christmas Caravan for Kids This year’s event will be held on Saturday, December 7th, at Lincoln College of Technology from 10 am – 2 pm. Please save the date and plan to join us. Lincoln College of Technology is located at 11194 E. 45th Ave, Denver, CO 80239. That’s just off of I-70 and Havana. A little background info— In 2003, an ongoing community service project entitled “Christmas Caravan for Kids” was begun. Each year, in conjunction with area vendors and 4-Wheelers throughout Colorado’s Front Range, we sponsor a toy drive and “meet and greet” to benefit the Marine’s Toys for Tots Campaign. 4-Wheelers from around the Front Range meet in pre-determined locations and “caravan” to the event site where the USMC’s MACS 23rd Air Unit from Buckley Air Force Base is waiting to receive the toys donated by participants. For each of our first two events, we were the second largest single day toy donation the Marines received (second only to the Denver Bronco Toy Drive). In 2005, we became the largest single day donation ever received by Denver’s Toys for Tots campaign. Following the toy drive, participants are treated to a “meet and greet” with area vendors which includes a FREE lunch and FREE raffle drawing. All vehicles are welcome—daily drivers, trail rigs, tow rigs, buggies, trailer queens, trucks, hot rods, muscle cars, bikes, family sedans, and…… bring your ride along with new unwrapped toys to donate to help assure no child goes without a Christmas. Again this year, the USMC’s CLB-453 unit is host to the Toys for Tots campaign.. We also have different caravan locations, with the move to Lincoln College of Technology. Also, the northern location is now official!!! Again this year Southwest Metro Location will be Les Schwab Tires. The Southeast Metro Location again stages at Fay Myers Motorcycle World. Since the event is now east, the Aurora location will not officially gather, instead we’ve added a WEST location at Trails Jeep at 850 Brickyard Circle in Golden. Locations: All Metro Caravans leave their meeting site at 10:00 am, Longmont leaves at 9:00 am North Metro: Quaker Stake & Lube Just West of US-36 on 104th 10392 Read Street Westminster, CO 80021 West Metro: Trails Jeep 850 Brickyard Circle Golden, CO 80021 South Metro: Fay Myers Motorcycle World 3 lights east of I-25 on Arapahoe Road 9700 E. Arapahoe Road Greenwood Village, CO 80112 Southwest Metro: Les Schwab Tire Just East of C-470 on Bowles Ave. 13331 W. Bowles Ave. Littleton, CO 80021 Brighton – Buffalo WIld Wings Just West of I-76 on 144th 2025 Prairie Center Parkway Brighton, CO 80601 Longmont – Park and Ride Just Southwest of I-25 & CO-66 Take CO-66 West to Foster Drive, Take Foster Drive South to Highland Drive, Take Highland Drive East to Park and Ride Please check back for updates over the month. I’ll try to remember to update the date in the title as well. As always, thanks to everyone for all of your support over the years and a huge thanks in advance for this year’s event. Paula"

Well looks like the ebrake was binding up in the rear passenger brake. Seems like the problem is fixed. We should be there. I'll try to find a c springs meet up spot.
