    Keep us updated!
    I've gone to Durango once a year for the last 4 years. Absolutely love it there. Hoping to be able to move out there toward the end of this year or next at latest.
    Biking has been my only form of transportation for 9+ years now and this year, I'd like to take one of my bikes there.
    Sounds like quite the ride you're planning! Only heard good things about Telluride, gotta make it there as well as Ouray.

    And another 'revival' of the thread.

    After a few years of false starts and delays, WE ARE BOOKED BABY! Depart Aug 15. Durango route w/ singletrack option.

    Got trip paid for, plane tickets, hotels paid for, huge plastic bike shipping device, and a new/better rear rack. Also several bulky/heavy gear items were replaced with better/smaller/lighter ones.

    And there's a new bike as well. Nice Orbea Oiz softtail.

    happy dance...

    Will put something in here in next couple of weeks. Have to do a test fit of the gear soon.

    We are going bare bones. Not even carrying an insulated jacket.

    Didn't get enough punishment the first 2 times. Wife (!) and I are going for my 3rd and her 1st trip.

    She mentioned something about pushing me off a cliff. Sure it was a joke...

    Let her know I'm interested in your lights, ......... If it wasn't.

    Got back today around 3am. Had a good time. Was unseasonably cool.

    My hds clicky failed! Refused to turn on. Tried to reset it, no luck. Finally started working again for no reason. Worked a while, then quit again.
