Colorado meetup?!?!

seems like a growing number of Coloradans on the forum....

any interest in a meeting?

maybe a rally at dove valley?
somewhere pretty in the mountains?

im way out east on the flat plains, but id be happy to host. North Sterling state park is just around the corner from me.

lets do something!

next time i'm gonna tow my atv too.

traffic was the the only issue, there were temporary jams that heated the tranny way up. the tranny slipped a couple of times under the load, but groaned and kept going. the picture is the next day, monday morning 8 am, return trip, no traffic, no problem.

I'm down! We are in Fort Collins! We're going to be full timing in like, 17 days!

Might have to do this in the off-season ...unless we can plan for next year? I know the RV parks around here are PACKED! Anywhere else in CO a good place to park? Not 'native' to here so I am not sure.

Wow, congrats! We're still like a year or so away from that lofty goal.

Might just have to be a Walmart parking lot, lol! Or maybe red rocks when nothing is going on, that would be a great photo.
