Western NC and upstate SC trip to Colorado Ya'll come!

I am putting together my 3rd trip to Silverton, Co. I have space for a few more riders.
Bikes hauled out by transporter, we fly to Durango and shuttle service to Silverton.
Depart July 6 and return July 14.
Bikes loaded the weekend before and recovered anytime after the 18th.
Check out my facebook page for more details and some pics.
This is not a business, this is just a well organized trip!

airfare looks around $550
bike transport, shuttle the 60 odd miles, gear transport and camping at the "resort"should work out in the $1400 ballpark. Cabins are $60 per night dbl occupancy, Hostel down the road $20 + tax, couple of motel options.
group will be 12 bikes. There is one guy going who is into scenery and less adventurous trails. We plan to hit all the big ones, Ophir, Black Bear, Alpine Loop, Engineer, Last Dollar California Gulch and Animas Forks. I am sure someone will just have to try some of the single tracks. There is something for everyone.
My pace is SAFE!! There are places you can run 50 and places you can run 5. Only prize you win is getting home safe. If you have someone who wants to run stupid fast with you, fine but wait at the designated spots IF you are riding with me. I have no desire to get hurt and out here help is hours away and spare parts are 100 miles!
Most bikes so far are KLRs. I have a 400 zuk and 650 Honda in the wings waiting to drop the $$.
You will book air on one of the flights I will give you the number to. I have a group travel guy working today to get us a better price. I plan on driving out so we will have a truck in the event of a major breakdown.
Ride where you want at your pace. This is YOUR vacation too. I work too hard all year not to do something outstanding when I take off. I just thought that putting together a big trip will work out cheaper for everybody and be a lot more fun than just me and one or two others. Our trip last year proved me right.
