Bring a CB if you have it.

Be prepared please! Bring a shovel, sand, tow strap, etc. Don't rely on other people to have these items.

Sorry for delay in posting I thought I hit submit before I went to bed.

Where we headed Shawn?
Should be able to make it, think there was something else on the 2nd but not sure. Have to check with the wife.

(I have a brand new never used set of cables for a stock Subaru if anyone needs them, they were in the back of the sedan when I bought it and defintely won't fit on my 29" tires :brow: )

Can't go, I'll be marching with the school's band in the Golden Christmas Parade at 11:00.

If you guys are still in Golden at 11:00, come to Washington Ave along downtown Golden, I'll be there.

Boston's official "Holiday/Christmas" (they can't decide which name is most politically correct and doesn't "offend" anyone... arrrrrgggghhh!) tree is laying on its side, in the grass, due to wet ground that won't support its weight. 42 feet is all... so you know it's wet here, need more than sand a tow rope... blub, blub....

)


I have 2 options I am exploring so that if it dumps snow we aren't SOL....one of the routes would not be good after a foot drops out of the sky and the other wouldnt be any good if it hadnt snowed in the last few days. Ill have it hammered out after Thanksgiving with a few days to spare before the meet.

I'm performing for a corporate Xmas party Dec 1. They get pretty wild. This year the company's doing it in a hotel and they gave me a room......something tells me I may not be alive at that time in the morning.

I can catch up with everyone a little later though, but I'll need a number to call (if there's cell there) to get to your location.

Trying to plan around a family activity...but if it's not super far (and I can get my IAC on the lifted rig somewhat working) I should be there.

Where's the two options at Shawn?


It just started snowing so getting a gauge on how bad (good) it would be might be hard right now but heres my favorite places to go....and we can do both and allow people to break off and go back toward home at the end of option one which might work nicely.

Leg 1 takes you on a short but typically snowy drive that should be passable in virtually any 4wd/AWD Subaru including legacy/XT6, etc, assuming the driver has some snow experience and decent winter tires and sense.

From Golden we head up 93 briefly to Golden Gate Canyon. West up the canyon to Robins Hill Road (Robinson Hill Road on some maps) and make a Left (southish).
A very small town at the crest of RobinsHill road points up into the mountains and might be numbered still as #69 RD. (hehehe--sorry). This is a narrow rural road that isnt well maintained, has lots of little challenges but isnt difficult. Very scenic considering distance from civilization.
At the end of RD 69 is Smith Hill Road (#7). Id go Right (North) and head back to Highway 46 (golden gate canyon road again);this is real close to the south end of Golden Gate Canyon State Park. At this intersection those that need to go back home would have a good option to make a Right and head back to Golden/Denver.

If people want to keep playing they can continue for leg 2 which basically is a side road trip up to Nederland where I would go up RD 128 to Caribou past Cardinal and the old Mine area. Every time I go up there this year there is more snow than the last time but the tracks up are improving. This road is tretcherous at times and will require lots of 1st gear creeping on the decent from Caribou so you dont lose control and slide.....well lets not go there. Safety first...I saw a Large ford expedition that was completely totalled up there from going too fast last time I was up there. And he was lucky total the vehicle it could have been the cliff instead.
