Rocky Mountian Binders,

Brian Branch and I are spending the week after RHIHR wheeling in south central Colorado and are wondering if any local binders would like to join (or Guide) us. Neither our trails nor our schedule is set but we would like to hit a few of the big name trails. We will be around Buena Vista, Salida, Penrose, Fairplay, and Alamosa. Anyone interested?

We are also camping, if anyone has any good spots they are willing to share I would love to hear about them.

Thanks,

Mike

The trail trip list will be posted Saturday as soon as I get home from the meeting. I haven't seen it yet myself although I believe Wheeler Lake and Mosquito Pass are on the list.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to stay past Monday morning.

The official Trail list for RMIHR 2009 is:

Sunday:
Mosquito Pass
Silver Falls - this is a relatively unknown trail right outside of Fairplay, led by a couple of local boys. Rated 3 out of 5, stock height vehicles should expect body damage.

Monday:
Wheeler Lake
Georgia Pass/Mini Rubicon
Boreas Pass
Twin Cone

Tuesday:
Red Cone/Deer Creek - Need at least 6 trucks signed up or it will be cancelled. Tuesday trail trips have not been popular the last few years and aren't listed on the flyer anymore, but we'll give it one more shot if there is enough interest.

That's it for the Officially sanctioned trails.

There are some folks planning to stay and run Holy Cross later in the week.

Are any of the RMIHR sanctioned runs acceptable for a stock scout with 31's?

Boreas Pass is pretty much graded and graveled old railroad grade, and can be driven in a car. Nice scenic drive.

Mosquito Pass can be done in a stock SII on 31's with some judicious driving. Expect some tire rub.

At one time I'd have said Georgia Pass was a possibility, and certainly would be to the top on the south (Jefferson) and I believe there are suitable bypasses for most of the Mini Rubicon. The north side (Breckenridge) of Georgia Pass would have been pretty hairy in a stock one the last time I was on it (2001), and it's supposed to be even more washed out now. Talk to the trail leader at the show and he would be a better judge of that than I am.

The rest I wouldn't even attempt in one of my 4" lifted SII's, except maybe Silver Falls, I'm just not that hardcore. The 800 with 34's wouldn't have a problem lift wise although having open diff's on both ends might be a problem on Red Cone and Twin Cone and the step at the end of Wheeler Lake.

HTH,

Will Marsh
