July 11-13, 2007 ~ Ouray FSJ Invasion

1/2/07 UPDATE


July 11, 12 & 13 - Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for trail runs. Be in Ouray by Tuesday to catch runs beginning Wednesday. This will work best for folks with kids in school. We are still on for folks dropping in our home in Mancos, CO on July 9 & 10 with at least one local Mancos trail ride on Monday the 9th.


NOTE: There is at least one requirement we make for those who join us for the trail rides. You must have a low range transfer case on your vehicle. We take absolutely no responsibility for anyone who ventures to the mountain trails without a low range transfer case in their vehicle.


For 2007, we invade the San Juan Mountains with our FSJs all over again! Please plan to be in Ouray by Tuesday evening (July 10). We will be trail riding Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. There is the option stay another day and get together for a ride on Saturday as well. The socially acceptable FSJ place to camp is at the Ouray KOA. All sites are now open to all who call. Krista and I have site 47A reserved again this year. We are also holding site 47D in our name . 47D is the social gathering place for camp fire meetings. Anyone who wants 47D can contact us.


Since we are not sure how long everyone might be able to stay, be sure and let KOA know which day you plan to depart. It is pretty laid back in the back by the aspens and only a short walk to the bathroom and showers. You are responsible to get and pay for your sites if you stay at the KOA or anywhere else. The best bet is to determine if you can make it to the 2007 Ouray FSJ Invasion and reserve early. Please remember: if you cancel less than 48 hours before your arrival date, you pay Dave for at least two nights any way. There is a change in reservations for 2007. They will charge your credit card for 1 night for each reservation you make. You bill with KOA is your responsibility. Here is the KOA web site: OURAY KOA You can reserve a site by the Internet HERE, by email to Dave or call 1-800-KOA-8026. Dave and Deborah spend the winter in Florida and will be leaving Ouray by the end of October until next Spring. They can take your reservations from where ever they are, but it may take a couple to a few days to make your connection once he has left for Florida. Please be patient. Reserved sites are shown with an asterisk on the map below.



Here is a link to other lodging options. Note: Discounts mentioned at that link only applied to the 2002 Ouray FSJ Invasion.




More info on the unofficial web site here:
2007 Ouray FSJ Invasion

Thanks everyone.

Yep, I have the problem/ complaint that I won't be there. Has to be the week before!!! I vote for July 11,12,13. But I know that it can't be planned to fit everyone's schedule... and we will not likely be driving an FSJ this time, either (so why am I on this site, you ask??). So to be fair, it's not up to me. Just wanted to express my unhappiness with not being able to go, I really had a good time this year. Great people, great scenery, what more could you ask for? Maybe in 2008? I vote to keep it in Ouray, always. Unless someone shows me prettier pictures than the ones I have... and a better time than I had, too! How bout Hawaii wheelin'??? Sure, we can drive there!

I think we could be talked into the week before. Ralph was interested in the week before. The floor is open for discussion on the week before. Did I say we could manage the week before?

Flint, will there be any single women around the stables to hang my hat on? I could use a human female co-pilot this year in and around Colorado. I seem to be in a better mood driving on those long, dusty, bumpy Colorado roads. Come on, help a fellow Texan out!!!

See you in Mancos in '07

Kenny, hon..... seems to me you got to make it across the colorado state line before you can get a "co-pilot".

I wouldn't mind it being a week earlier like 2 years ago. Emily started school the day after we got back this year.
But as long as it is NO LATER than those dates I will be there.
Already looking forward to it again my friends.

Ummm...I've made it across the line a few times. I just like to have a different co-pilot for different area codes, city limits, zip codes, etc.
I can keep them straight that way.

On a serious note, I prefer the way we had it in '02. I don't like the rain and I hate sitting on top of the mountain with lightning all around. Those monsson rains in '04 totally sucked! How long did we have to wait that year for the rains to end and get back on the trail?

How about a poll to see how many families are "all in" this early in the game. That will give us some understanding on "why" where starting so early....Again, didn't I mention the rain sucks on top of the mountain?

Flint,

I will do my best to make it next year. It will be good to see you all again and test out my '89.

OK, a site is started. Next month, I'll get hold of Dave and grab the aspens for us.

2007 Ouray FSJ Invasion

Oh, I checked the pass conditions today. All high country trails around Ouray and Silverton are closed to snow except Yankee Boy Basin, Owl Creek Pass and Last Dollar Road this week.

Dang.

That's the week me and the boys take our annual motorcycle trip. But since I'm the instigator of that activity, I guess I'll have to change it to a couple of weeks later.

I also will be doing Moab with whichever FSJers are going. Preferably a week or two after the EJS. I was there for that this year and there's just too much trail traffic. Seeing all the cool Jeeps around town isn't enough to outweigh the inability to do the trails you want.

Moab the week before, or after, Ouray?

Just a thought from someone who's interrest often exceeds his ability to go do the wheeling....

Maybe we need to get a seperate thread going for the Moab trip. Sounds like Matt wants to go 2 weeks after EJS. Doesn't matter to me either way. I know that Colin wants to go (with us this year!), you, Matt, Shimniok, myself... meet Flinty out there... We could crowd up all the trails we want to with FSJ's!

I will start a thread under "EVENTS" and PM Colin and let him know that I have posted it so he is in the loop. I will edit this post with the link to the Moab thread in case any utahun's, arizonan's, new mexican's, etc, want to join in.

I am definately going to both Ouray and Moab this coming summer. I can't wait!

Our trip itinerary (vague at this point) should put us in Mancos for Monday night and we can head to Ouray with the rest of the clan on Tuesday. We will be leaving Glacier on Sunday... two long driving days should do it... we haven't planned the exact route yet but I believe it includes Hwy 666.

Michael wants to go a week after EJS, which ends on Easter Sunday April 8, 2007 I presume. So I guess that would mean we'd head out there on Sunday the 15th or Monday the 16th and stay until we all break or are broke. I don't really want to go to Moab in the summer. My A/C works okay on the road, but not so great on the trail...

It's like taking a gentle country gravel road to your Grandma's house. Then again there is that obstacle .. Most of what I saw( when my eyes were open) were gravel roads. There were some serious obstacles to clear but these guys know which trails' needs are. I believe Alan and Pams waggy was about all stock and they did alot of wheeling. I don't remember seeing them up on Imogene Pass, that trail would require some lift or else body damage is emminent. I do believe UglyJeepling's Chero was stock height and he done that trail. I just can't get that Rock outcropping, near the top, out of my mind . I was hitching a ride in a J20 with a massive lift,tires and a great driver. Then there was some high mountain hiking done as well. .

In other words you'll be fine. Bring it on out. You won't regret it and neither will your therapist.
