2016 USCA Rigs In The Rockies Rally

For those that may be interested, Horizons Unlimited is holding their rally JULY 15-17, 2016 at
Terry A. Gross Park, Geneva Creek, just off Highway 285, at the foot of Guanella and Kenosha Passes, Pike National Forest, Grant CO

I have attended a couple of these, great rides, wonderful camaraderie, and outstanding food!

Hey Dana,

I'm going to try to ride out on Wednesday if you need any help setting up.

Cheers,

Dan K.

Thanks Dan, I will be there Wednesday also but we do not have the building until Thursday and no tents in the park until Thursday afternoon. Have to put tents in the regular camping area for Wednesday night and move them over to the park on Thursday.

Shouldn't be a lot to do on Wednesday but we can start getting the trash cans out and maybe setting up the barriers so we can fence off that parking area to the East of the park so we can keep it just for sidecar parking.

Will there be a registration form on line?

Short answer is Yes but I am not sure when.

The registration stuff is all ready to go on my end and I think they are waiting to post it online until March when the form will also be published in the magazine. They need to deal with the PayPal and such at the organization level so that is up to the organization whenever they are ready. The web guy also needs to get everything setup on the home page so I am guessing that will all be done by the end of the month.

So, spring last year I bought a rig and drove it cross country home. After that and routine inspections, and a few surprises I think it is ready. I hope to ride it to the National rally in Hotchkiss. However, my confidence in its mechanical integrity is shaken.

Is there anyone traveling from the MN/WI area that would like to travel together, or make routine contact for the trip to Hotchkiss? My original plan was to ride the interstate (I-80) through Colorado Springs. perhaps taking more than one day to make the trip. But I am open to suggestions.

Jim,

We are towing our rig to the rally so we probably wouldn't be traveling at the same pace but we are traveling about the same route and if you get in trouble we would probably be the closest help. Give me a call and we'll see what we can work out. 612-759-4666.

After the rally anyone interested in doing some of the passes? I have a friend with a new Can Am Spyder that will not be able to some of the more challenging.
Any suggestions?

Slabing out of Lancaster, PA on the 5th. Direct to Hwy70. Drop on down, meet for coffee, and then more "bugs in the teeth"!

Safe journey
See you down the road
