We are going into Colorado to ride a few trails soon and I was wondering what we should take.

Regarding CB radios, do any of you just use those hand held walkie talkies or do you use a real CB? I don't have any idea if they operate on the same frequency but I have used the hand held units off road and had great success.

NC I use "race radios" Icom to be specific and I am able to have a lot of different channels programmed into them. I also like how I can bounce off a "public" channel like on a CB to this.

What trails are you going to do?
If the high country, most are fairly easy honestly, but still pay attention!
Bring a rain coat too!
TP!
Near Canon City. Some friends are going too and plan on renting a Jeep up there for a day or two. So I assume we will stay on more established trails/roads just up in the mountains.

Winch, full mechanics set, and common sense. Don't ever do anything you don't know how to do, it's always good to bring a seasoned wheeling vet on your first few times out.

Will do. We have all been riding quads for years and do some advanced stuff but I know some of that knowledge will cross over and some won't. I plan on taking it easy till I'm sure what I'm doing. I'm thinking just going over the passes will do for this trip, no rock crawling.
