good luck BZ

in other news,

I will be moving to Colorado by the end of the month! Got me one o dem wildland firefighting jobs. Gonna be stationed in Montrose, between Grand Junction and Telluride. Workin for the BLM on a type 6 engine.

My question is - where do all you FFs ride when you vacation up there? Also, any idea about OHV regulations? Seems they may require a sticker of some sort?

I'm headin out a lil early to acclimate/ride.

Yo Yo PAR riders,
Looks like I can't drag the ButcherMan(K-dub) up with me & Mr. Walker is headed to Tenn this wknd to do a family/nephew ride. So it's a solo round trip 4 bonzo here.

Hope 1-2 pm arrival Fri.aft, Vic PM or Email me with gps route/tracks I will try & load on my garmin dinosaur & let me know where to pasture park, I'll work on getting the PAR ADV flagpole up & wild turkey feathers flying.

Thanks to the duke & club for this offering & all efforts involved. Looking forward to seeing all the gent's & mongrels that I missed last Turkey Trot via mis-diagnosed heart attack bruhaha. ( 1.8 mile , $809 waah-mbulance ride for nought)

Ride till ya puke,
JohnnyP

Badass riding over there.

All you need is a plate and an annual OHV sticker. I think it cost us $15 when we went. We road the Telluride/Ouray areas for six days. There is plenty out there. Start lurking on the Colorado regional page or PM MItrnsplt for some good tracks.

And be warned, Calico Trail and Black Bear Pass are a couple of the most spectacular, treacherous, difficult trails out there.

I'm jealous, I'm only moving to NJ.

Congrats. .

I've only ridden out there twice. Once near the Telluride area and the second in Buena Vista. Awesome, you'll love it. Taylor Park requires a permit and is a must do if you like knarly single track.

Was going to do that years ago, Went over and did the Red Card training with Fl State forestry, took them 7 months to send me my card, and then they had put my fathers name were my name was to go. could not get them to give me a correct card.

Got a like new par. of Black Diamond mod. # 0909 leather wild-land boots, lace up. 14" tall size 11W, used maybe 3 times in small grass fires, no cuts or scraches, paid around $290.00.

I would take a $50

Dont forget your spark arrester , you dont need to create work. and put in for smoke-jumper, They say its REAL EASY.....

Hatch,

Thanks for all the good info, advice and pictures...have a blast with the new terrain (not much sand). There is some elevation change out there I hear...the drive to the top of Mt Evans (14,270') is very nice (highest paved road in North America) but do a little research on elevation sickness, seriously, it can affect those of us who have lived down low (sea level) for a while.
Just don't end up like this guy...I filed it away for future use.

Beasty Ride This Weekend?

If anybody feels like riding the Gulf I think I'm heading to New Orleans Saturday morning. I may spend the night I may not, depends on how I'm feeling. Hell, I may leave Friday after work and ride all weekend.

If anybody is interested let me know. The weather looks great this weekend and I'm ready to ride

-Jake

Perry Mountain DS Ride - April 12

Im in the final stages of preparation. Does anyone have any blinker fluid to spare. I used all mine and Dr Z needs some!

"My Radar" says Sunny for the rest of the week at Perry Mountain. Maybe the woods gods will smile on us and we will have dust and not mud.

YJake - turn north and come join us at Perry Mountain. It aint NOLA but someone is bringing crawfish...and there might be something to drink.
