Four Corners Unit Boondocking Rally June 22-24

Escape the summer heat in the beautiful Colorado mountains. Lizardhead pass is at 10,200' elevation on Hwy 145 about 12 miles south of Telluride, CO. The highway is very good with some sections of 4-6% grades. The parking area is a dirt and grass meadow on the east side of the highway right at the top of the pass. See picture on the FCU website rally page.


This boondocking rally will be an opportunity to test your stand alone capabilities. There will be no hookups, no restrooms, no picnic tables, no paved parking pads.

Hey 25,

I'd LOVE to get to this one, but I will just be heading out of FL about then. Will miss you by about a week or so. Catch you at the next one, or at the Balloon Fiesta!

OK Lew,
The Balloon Fiesta will be the high point rally of the year for the FCU.

We will be in the hood for the Bluegrass festival

Pretty much the same dates as the Bluegrass Festival. Unfortunately we are already reserved at a local RV park. Hmmm this could be too much fun.

ham radio from the 10,200' pass

Hi Kenneth,
I thought it would be fun to try ham radio from the 10,200' pass. I am just a Tech class so I am restricted to VHF/UHF which needs line of sight.

Jerry,
I think it would be very cool to see how many repeaters you can find at 10,200 feet. I have the latest repeater software and can use that with the GPS to find close ones. We will be in the neighborhood (not sure if we will make it up to the campground for a visit) and will try talking with you.

Jerry,
I hate to miss a rally, but we have another one that weekend. We will be at Big Lake in the AZ White Mountains with my flyfishing club. We made the reservations months ago. The altitude is only 9200 feet, but it too will be cool. Have a great rally!

KL
According to my Repeater Directory, looks like the Silverton repeater is the closest with others in Cortez, Creede, Durango and Pagosa Springs.

Come on all you FCU'ers. Oh that doesn't look right!@!

This will be a great low key rally. In THE most beautiful surroundings. Room to roam or relax. Mountain Climb by foot or bike or sit and keep your chair company. :-)

Welcome aboard AirstreamGypsy. This is your neck of the woods so to speak.

There is a sign up page at:
http://www.airforums.com/forums/cale...-22;&e=331&c=1

Denis4x4 had expressed interest at one time but have not heard from him lately.

I wonder how many are interested in biking the Galloping Goose Trail (all gently downhill) vs. how many want to go to the Bluegrass Festival in Telluride?

We'd be up for both ideas. The bike trail sounds nice, similar to what we do on the Vail pass when we take our truck to the top, drop it off and ride the bikes down. I have a friend that runs a grocery store in Telluride. I spoke with him today to let him know that we'll be in the area. He said the Blue Grass festival was his busiest weekend of the year. He recommended that since the rally is south of town, if we wanted to go into town to try to park at the Mountain Village, and take the gondola into town. They don't have the parking to deal with the volume of cars the festival draws, so they close off the highway, and require people to take a shuttle into town. I haven't been to Telluride for several years, but it's a really cool town to check out.
This will be the first Rally we've been to, so we hope to see several airstreamers. If it's only a few we'll still enjoy it though. This is our kind of camping.
Charlie

Vail Pass

Charlie,
We have spotted cars at Red Cliff then driven around to Vail Pass for the start a day of all downhill cross country skiing. Saw a couple of plush yurts along the way.

Regarding the Lizard Head Pass rally, the suggestion to park at Mountain Village and take the free gondola down to Telluride for the Bluegrass Festival sounds prudent.
