Hello All.

The attached document is the list of attendees as I have it.
I don't know the last name of a few of you, so if you don't mind send me
a message with that info.  If not, no big deal we will get acquainted in Ouray.

Ouray is called the Switzerland of America.  We think you will enjoy the town and
the trails.  A number of places nearby, Ridgeway, Telluride and even Durango are
available to explore as well.

Looking forward to this.  For those who 'are on the fence' please consider making your
reservations with the KOA as soon as possible.  It is a popular destination for tourists,
hikers and Jeepers.  The KOA will sell out quickly and they have a limited number of
spaces for larger rigs.

Thanks Larry, I appreciate that.

I agree with Larry, if anyone is even contemplating coming and off-roading with us, PLEASE make your reservations as soon as possible to guarantee yourselves a site.  If something comes up down the road you can always cancel and just be out a $10.00 cancellation as per KOA's cancellation policy.

Thanks.

It is a beautiful area. Ridgway State Park, just north of the town of Ridgway (which is about 10 miles north of Ouray) is also a nice place to stay, though you really need to get reservations in 6 months in advance (at least for Friday and Saturday nights), since all Colorado State Parks fill weekends very quickly, often within the first day or two they're available to reserve.

Thanks Mike.  We moved today and I just now got logged on. . . . .
I will update the table and just post it with any updates in the field
rather than as an attachment. . . Marty I am not sophisticated enough to
convert a word document to a .pdf.  It's probably easy once you do it, but
I never have.  I will look into it. . . . .

If you're using a Windows based computer, when doing your "save as", there is a drop box beside the document name that you are saving.  Hit the button on the drop box, scroll through to "pdf", and click on that format. Just that easy.

 No I saw  your response.   You will be  on the creek.  May be helpful to have your names for the roster.  I  think someone just typed too fast in making the list.

It's just me. No worries.

I was just wondering as last week I replied directly to the private message from THE-BigLarry.

I'll be somewhere between sites 2 and 9. A short stroll to where you folks will be with the big rigs.

Dave:  Sorry I missed your reply.  We have had some issues happening around our place and I have not
been paying attention.  Now, more issues are happening, but not to worry.  You're on the list and we will
get acquainted in Ouray.  We had a great time while we were there in 2016 and next year will be just as
good. 

We look forward to wheeling and getting acquainted with EVERYONE. . . . . .

After some words of encouragement from our good friend Mike Zuech, Dee and I have made a reservation for this rally and are going to rent a Jeep for a few of the days we are there.  We want to get our feet wet and see if this Jeeping thing is really for us.  The great friends we have made on this forum are always so willing to impart their knowledge that it makes this possible.  Hope you won't mind spotting the newbie a time or two?

Glad to see you took the plunge Steve.  Newbies are always welcome as we all started somewhere.  You will love the Ouray area as it is more scenic than technical for the most part, although there are some nice extra credits for the thrill seekers. ;D

This past August I think we saw more rental Jeeps on the trails than we did personally owned ones so you won't be alone. 

Just a word of wisdom, don't plan on renting a Jeep and "getting your feet wet", plan on test driving a Jeep and driving it off-road (the way it was meant to be driven) only to go back home and pick out the color of the one you will be buying.

Hey Mike, thanks for the holiday wishes. We and some of the folks on the Ouray list are spending Thanksgiving week jeeping in Fort Mac Dowell, AZ. We all sure missed seeing you guys in Moab, but know you were involved in an exciting endeavor. You guys take care, and have a great holiday.
