Turns out I am booked (paid in advance) for family week in Steamboat Sept 7-15. So, I may try to "negotiate" an early departure and ride WR250R from there (Google says 277 miles) to Ouray KOA. But then, I have to "negotiate" with wife to drive from Steamboat to pick me up in Ouray for the long trek back to Oklahoma. Seems like a lot uh cooperatin' & understandin' required. It could happen. However, a separate late July monsoon season bike trip might be more conducive for domestic tranquility.
