i am open to dates and ideas. i want to avoid holidays.

How about kicking off summer with a June 4-5 get together?

I think we would be up for something in June. Not sure about Mesa Verde though. Last time we were there it was very crowded and the traffic was bad to get to the various interesting sites, so it would not be fun to drive a bus around to look at things. At that time they did not have shuttles and I don't know if they have them now are not. I will look around and see if I can find some interesting alternatives and it would be nice if we can get more people involved.

I have been looking at Trinidad Lake State Park. They have hookups for RVs that want to use them and it looks like there are interesting things to do and look at in the area. It is not very far from civilization but there is some hiking there too. It is a little over 2 hours drive from Colorado Springs and 3 hours from Denver, and unfortunately a long way for Turf to drive (although not as far as Mesa Verde). I could not find any ATV trails near there but I currently do not have an ATV so a may not know where to look. Let me know what you think, I am still looking for other spots also.

Ya I am ready for the snow to go away also, in fact I intended to go there this week and check it out, I had to cancel because of the storm. However, I have talked to people who have camped there and they strongly recommended it. My suggestion for Colorado meetup #2 would be Trinidad Lake State Park on the weekend starting on June 10 through June 12. I hope we can get input from other skoolies in Colorado and hopefully some people and their buses can make the trip to Southern Colorado for a get together.
