That would be me. 96 Classic.
We did drive up to Longmont Co. on our way back to Michigan to check out Spidertrax where I had ordered the parts to build my spider 9 front axle housing. I can't believe the stuff they make in such a small shop. Very cool.

You were within 10 miles of my house. You should have called. I am known for killing the fatted calf and having a burnt offering.

Re: Ouray Pics

We like the rough stuff, but truth be told thats not what we came for. That area is incredible for scenery, the town itself is fun, the hiking was great. Everything we wanted except for a few extra weeks there to take in more of it! I've beaten on my rigs hard enough at home, although I must admit the trails outside of Montrose intrigued me, although I doubt the 01 would make them in one piece...when my 98 is finished we'll be back to take them, if not before.

This WAS my 98 before I took a saw to it...for an idea of where it's headed , see "RCMan"'s profile and build thread

Re: Ouray Pics

Overall I would say yes, the scenery makes up for the lack of hardcore trails. Poughkeepsie was challenging enough in spots I thought. There were definitely some in the group that had a hard time in a few places.

Montrose is too hard core, for me at least. It looked like the smallest you should have to run there is 37's.

A trail in between in difficulty would have been fun (or with lots of optional stuff), but for me personally, that's not why I went down there. The scenery, and access to to with the Jeep, is very unique and was worth the trip for me.

Re: Ouray Pics

Woops, looks like moving all my pics around to combine them with the GF's and the rents broke the pic links. Anyways, my album is finally done. If anyone wants to check them all out, here is the link...

Some trail I don't know the name of:




Poughkeepsie:

Re: Ouray Pics

Nice pics, Ryan! Got a higher resolution one of the lynx? It would be nice to see what may have been outside our tent that one night

I finally found the time to finish sorting and uploading Cindy's pics.
She took a few on our drive out there. We spent an hour going 5 miles in Iowa, and just as I was regretting not taking that last exit to who knows where, we finally started moving. Just up the road we saw this...







There was one in the median also, but when Cindy took that pic, the camera focused on my nose

Then in Colorado...



Truth in advertising...

Re: Ouray Pics

We spent a few hours Sunday afternoon checking out Colorado National Monument, last time we were there was in '01 so it was nice to see again, and since we weren't going to Moab, this was at least a little similar.
