    I'm definitely interested in this one. Have been wanting to head back west and this looks like about the right time frame.
    When will we need to confirm and pay to get in on this and a tee shirt?

I'm not going to turn anybody away because I know we can be "a last minute, cant make up my mind, oh shit is that this weekend" group:D, but I'll need to let the Dude know how many shirts to print a couple of weeks out........

    The annual family trip to Taylor Park is the same week. Would it be okay if I slid in on a ride or two while escaping from the fam?
    It would be good to meet a few of you and see some of the areas I haven't seen.

    Will be new to the ADV world come next spring when my new ride shows up. Rode CO in 2010 and planning another trip next year for some alpine roads. I am wondering if there are routes in mind yet and if I'll need to swap out tires. I would really like to make this. I used to do the West Bash with the XX forum guys and hosted one in Wyoming. I'll keep on eye on this. Thanks

    Gee, I guess I should go...
    It's 1/4 mile from my home to the KOA...
    Know the owner well, GREAT KOA...
    Haven't been to a WF since 09...
    I know a little (OK, I know a lot) about the area, 40 years worth...

    OK, I'll go...

    I actually like Gunnison a lot. Not touristy, good folks. Was there this past Summer kicking around and then checked out the CB Vinotok festival. Damn fun and hordes of the prettiest girls I've seen.
