    Eclipse Viewing Jackson, WY Aug 21, 2017

    So as usual, I'm checking on this site way late. My plans are set in stone just yet, but I live in Granby off 125 & hopefully have a less used back way to & from Wyoming. My plan is to head up either with our popup camper & family to the Medicine Bow just north of Laramie to an established...

    Northern Colorado/Wyoming Trip

    So now there are 7 fires up north and even though it's mostly open, I figure it's best to keep clear of the smoke/haze etc so I'm heading south Friday am to meet some folks in Lake City and tour the alpine loop and then some. From there I'll head up north to the flat tops for a day before...

    Northern Colorado/Wyoming Trip

    Thanks for the input. I've always wanted to turn off onto the trail, but my wife looks at me and says no everytime. Potentially I'll find dirt track from Southwestern Wyoming back towards Steamboat on the return trip if I end up south, I'll document all tracks and pass them along when I'm...

    Northern Colorado/Wyoming Trip

    That fire has been in my sights for weeks. I live in Granby and on certain days the valley is hazy, but I drove thru Walden a few days ago when I left the state for Iowa and I couldn't even see the smoke but on the radar its growing for sure. The wind will really gauge where I'll stay the 1st...

    New Tent

    So what's your thought on the RV-5 with 2 adults, 2 kids and a large dog? I've been looking at these more with Summer around the next 4 snow storms. I sold my Turbo Tent because it was getting tight inside and my RTT is getting too small for us.

    CVT Black Butte Tent

    Skip I'll buy this from you. My RTT sold tomorrow so I'm good. Problem is where I live and my next time to the Front Range? Can I pay you with Pay Pal and then arrange a pickup point in the near future? Are you still doing Ouray in a couple of weeks?

    I'm reselling this tent before I even slept in it if you're interested? I'm up in Winter Park area. The tent was exactly as described however I finally got around to installing it on my roof and it takes up 100% of my rack and will not sit right with my awning. I enjoy the roof space and...
