I'm leaving in the morning--early, like 4 a.m. (Old Mikey, do you BELIEVE it?) I'm rooming with Phil Ellis and he mentioned this meetup, so I'm going to try to make it. Crossing NV on 50 tomorrow, then playing around in southern UT and who knows where in Colorado? Should have plenty of time to do that and meet up with this bunch. You can go first and locate the LEOs, 'k? ;)

Be sure to ride Nv 722 just past Middlegate, brings you back to 50 just before Austin. Hwy 141 in Co. gets my vote for a fun ride. Have a good time in Toas!

If you want, pm me and I'll get you my number. I'd be happy to meet you guys in Cimaron for the ride into Toas and if you want a side excursion can show you a nice little twisty, generally uncrowded road (loop). lemme know.

Mike, were you thinking about meeting us in Colorado Springs at 9am? Or try to intercept us somewhere along the way?

Thanks Patch, I'll PM you. Are you referring to the route through Red River? Or something else? I'm thinking we'll probably stop in Raton for lunch and gas, probably around 12:30ish. So, after lunch, and that damn stretch of straight and flat 64 to Cimarron, we'd be there sometime around 2pm or so.

Update: Turns out the Phillips 66 that used to be on the west side of I-25 (toward the mountains) is now a Shell. That means there are two Shell stations on either side of I-25! The one I am referring to is 435 GARDEN OF THE GODS RD COLORADO SPRINGS CO 80907-4217. It's on the EAST side of I-25 (away from the mountains).

Hope your having a good time, count me in for next year, and the hope that the guys choose CO, is pleasing.
