I started to run it last July when we were out there, but figured being by ourselves and no winch it might be better to leave that one alone..

There are signs throughout the trail noting each time the trail gets more difficult. They also note how much it costs to get your vehicle towed from that spot on.

Yeah I recall passing some of those signs in CO.. One of 'em said "Minimum Recovery Fee Beyond This Point $1500"

Is kinda funny.. We actually had to call a tow truck due to some engine problems and he was bragging about how he had a tow rig that could get on most of the trials in the state.. Bottom was nothing but a skid plate and he had four 16,000 Warns on it.. One on each corner.. He never said he could DRIVE there, but skidding it with the winches was an option.. I still didn't beleive him.. There's some turns up in those mountains that no matter how many times you try or how you winch it, you just don't have room to turn a truck that long..

No.. There was one trail we went up outside of Georgetown called Saxon Mountain.. Wasn't a very rough trail, but it had some hairy overhangs with 1000ft+ drops and a few narrow places.. Tooks us about 2 or 3 hours to make the top.. Got up top and found a cell tower.. Of course it figures I had no signal at all.. Thought it was kinda interesting and wondered about how long it took a crew to set that thing up.. 2 or 3 hours up, 2 or 3 hours down.. Didn't leave much of an 8 hour day to do any work.. Imagine it would be kinda frustrating being about to look over the edge and 4000ft down being able to see a hardware store in Georgetown and knowing it'd be a 6 hour round trip to get a box of screws..

Helo-drop, parts and all. Saves lots of time, especially if there's no chance of getting a crane up there. Plus, you can pre-assemble a lot of the major parts and drop them.

I feel sorry for all the soldiers and intelligence officers who over the last century have worked hard to defeat communism, only to have it elected by "choice".

I got my H2 about ¾ of the way through the trail but we ran out of time (it’s a there and back trail not a loop). I hope to get up there this year again.
