fyi - I found the Alton that KOA Dave was looking for. He is a return from the 2002 Invasion and hopes to get a Kabin.

Sorry Flint, I can't make it this year. I've got the AMCRC national in Reno just a couple weeks before Ouray and I want to spend some time up there with my grandfather. It would be about a month away from home and a drive all the way from Reno to Ouray, so it's just not happening.


Maybee next year.

No worries Matt. Family is important in life. Jeeps come after that. <Did I say THAT?!> I am looking at some things and hope to meet up some time this year where y'all are attending something. Can't say much yet because plans are in earliest stages at this point. Ride On

OK, at the risk of serious public embarrassment, I'm going way out on a limb and announcing my dog and I are going to try and make it. I have a voice message left with Dave and Debbie, at KOA, to find out what spots are still available.

As of last weekend this is what my Jeep looked like. It had just passed all its alignment checks, so now it just needs to be put back together and debugged.

Let's just say this public announcement is my way of keeping a fire lit under my rearend to finish my project soon. All the hard work is done and I have most all my new parts, so I should be able to finish it in the next 5 1/2 months.

Here's a link to the full photo album of my build-up from Jun 24th, 2011 to New Years day 2012:
I've never tried linking an album before so I hope this works.

Now all I can do is hope for the best and look forward to meeting everyone.

Resbum
P.S.- Sooner or later I'll get around to starting a build thread of this project.

We built Crom in just over 2 months of nights and weekends, in fact he had only been together for a week when I took him to Ouray the first time

I talked with Debra at KOA this evening. I may have to get an RV spot. Might as well tow the 40' 5th wheel down, if I do that. It would be a good first test for the Ol' Gladiator.

That would really be a test of your knuckles on the wheel. Going that way with a trailer that size with my 3500 would be borderline. good luck and hope you get there with no issues on your "test".

We hope you can make it, 5th wheel or not. Were you wanting a tent site and they are all booked up?

KOA sites usually start getting pretty well booked up for summer by February. There is always a chance to catch someone here who has to cancel and work it out to pick up their site.

Hay Martin, the roads in the San Juans will give most folks from the flatlands (me included) white knuckles just driving their Jeep on them. I have towed FSJs over Lizardhead on Hwy 145 but would not want to do Hwy 550 like that.

It's not as bad as it looks. I pretty much have all the parts and know what I need to do. The biggest issue will probably be having the time to debug it and get some mileage on it to break in all the new parts before a major roadtrip. The frame and sheetmetal are about the only things left that are FSJ, so that leaves a lot of possible quirks and debugging.

I popped out to BJ's Offroad yesterday to pick up some parts and told Brent I publicly committed to making the Ouray trip. He was excited for me and said he went in '02 or '03 and I'd have a good time. So now I'll really be pushing to make it.

Yep, no tent spaces available. I'll probably commit to either spot 58A or 61D, then get on the waiting list for cancellations. That's what Debra suggested. Plus, you could let me know if anyone here has to back out.

I was thinking about bringing the 5th wheel because it's the primary reason why I did the major ground up rebuild/modifications to the truck. Hence, this being a good first "test" for it.

I grew up in AK and have done a 2 year stint as a truck driver hauling max-cube doubles around the 11 western states. So, as long as everything fits between the lines I feel confident I can make it. Not saying I won't have white knuckes and numb fingers when I get there.

Being the end of the world is at hand, I do plan to attend this summer. I'll be in the XJ as I am currently FSJ challenged. I do still have a transfercase, 2 doors, an old windshield and a couple WT front fenders so I'm not totally FSJ deficient.

My plans all (obviously) depend on the work situation, but I will be doing what I can to get back out there. In '10 I got just a taste as I (meaning the XJ) wasn't really prepared properly (exhaust system took a beating). I did get a few easy trails in and just loved it.

Lets see, I think the first day (Wed.) was Placer Picayne or something like that (watch out for flat tires on the way down). Then a few of us did Maggie (?). Up the mountain and back down. Spent Thursday morning putting the exhaust system back together in Montrose, then just drove around the area sight-seeing as everyone was gone by the time I got back to the KOA. Friday I drove Last Dollar road solo. I had to head home Saturday morning. I hope to stay for Saturday this time. I did arrive a couple days early and I took the opportunity to ride Durango-Silverton narrow gauge train. I recommend that if you arrive a day or so early.

I'll likely be in a motel in Ouray again. I don't have a tent or camper and the kabins are taken.

Well due to bills created by some medical issues I have had over the first half of winter have wiped out the vacation budget, so unfortunately, we are going to have to drop out. Resbum has taken over our Reservation for Site 49. I wish we could still make the trip, but first things first. Maybe we will be able to make it next year. Time will tell. Flint, can you change the name on the map for site 49 from Knuck to Resbum?

Sure would like to attend

We were there last year and drove in the 4th of July Parade with San Juan Scenic Jeeps. Had a blast! Love to do it again this year. We rented a house just uphill from the KOA.

Thank you Knuck,

I really appreciate you sending me the PM about taking over your tent site. I owe you one. Getting the truck finished and debugged is enough pressure. Dropping the idea of hauling the 5th wheel took a load off my mind.

I look forward to meeting everyone.

Looks like this stuff is only available in Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, and Chicagoland.

Can someone bring some to Ouray in July?
