    Is there a point at which it’s too late to register?

    Not really, but late registration may not be guaranteed a t shirt. We've placed the order and allowed a few extra. The rest of the items like food are scalable closer to the date.

    So...come and join in the fun!

    I forgot there were shirts, lol. Was that a question to fill out in registration or a comment to add? I don't remember specifying a size, but that doesn't mean I didnt. :loco

    Actually, we discussed this a bit, and it may not be a late to register type thing, as much as a camp capacity. We realistically have about 9 or so more spots before we may exceed the planned capacity of camping. There is always other camping options at the KOA, Ouray Campground, etc, but about 30 is what John is comfortable with camping at the property with the toilets, water allotted, etc.

    So start to get your plans in a row soon, if you haven't already. This is going to be a very fun, low key, laid back event with incredible riding, at the perfect time of year!

    We are cutting off camping at the HQ site at 30 people to keep it manageable. So if you want to camp at the HQ site and have not registered, please do so. There is additional camping very nearby at the Ouray KOA Campground. Of course all will be welcome for Friday evening and Saturday pig roast. After the cap of 30 campers is reached, registration fee will be reduced by $20 for those that register after that. Thanks!

    We're at 20 campers as of now.

    A couple of us WI guys are going to be in Ouray on Sun the 5th thur Thur the 9th. I know we are missing out on the majority of the group activities but if anyone else is around town and wants to ride during the week lmk.

    Also, if anyone has tips on good camping or food - I would love to know what the hidden gems are.

    I’m counting the days and checking this thread several times a day! I think I’m spending more time preparing for this than actually doing anything productive.

    Also, there has been a change with the breakfast venue. The Mine was having some issues with their operation, so we moved it to the Ouray Riverside Resort and RV Park, it is just up the hwy toward Ouray from the Rally Site. For those who attended in 2018, it is the same Cafe we used for one of the breakfasts.

    Breakfast on 9/10 and 9/11 will be from 7:30-10am, inside their cafe. Just show them your wristband. Probably variety of burritos one day, standard breakfast like bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, on the other day, plus coffee, drinks, etc.

    The Sunny San Juan's this morning. Just a reminder to be prepared, you never know what the weather. A few inches on top of Imogene last night, probably will be gone by noon today.

    So what kind of temperature ranges should be expected at camp, and out on the trail?

    "Typically" (please note big air quotes with fingers) I would plan on low 40s potentially at night, 60s-low 70s for the days.
    For riding in the fall, I still tend to dress a bit lighter, but have a rain coat, extra gloves and maybe hand warmers packed.
