Colorado Rockies - Mini Epic Road Tour July 11 - July 15 2016

Colorado Rockies - Mini Epic Road Tour
July 11 - July 15 2016


Disclaimer:
---------------------------------------------
This a pay your own way event. This means even me the organizer pays my own way to attend. Organizing drives is my hobby and I enjoy putting the events on. I also pay for the website and store system out of my own pocket to make sharing information and registering easier on everyone.
---------------------------------------------


The Epic road trip event is a bi-yearly event that is focused on the spirit of having an adventure and making friends. The first Epic was a week in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons in 2013. The second Epic in 2015 was a 10 day grand tour of the many national parks of the southwest states. A rather informal survey concluded that many Participants of these two events could not wait 2 long years until the next Epic, and so here we go.

This will be a five day road adventure to drive as many of the scenic mountain roads and highways of the Colorado Rockies. While the focus will be on driving, we will be making stops to check out the scenery, historic small towns and railroads, ski resorts (gondola rides), etc. as time allows. You are welcome to join or leave the event at any point if you are not able to make all five days. With what we have planned, I strongly suggest you attend all five days as this will be one amazing driving adventure.

Unlike rallies and road course events, we encourage people to stay in a group and stop at the planned destinations, as this is a road trip not a rally. However, the stops and activities are suggestions, not mandates. Our format is for those individuals, couples or families, who want to have an adventure as well as make new friends with fellow enthusiasts. We mix the day up between driving sections, photo stops and sightseeing opportunities for everyone. This is not a race, so if you are looking for a competitive event this is not for you.

NOTE: Rooms are limited and it is first come first serve. So if you wish to go make sure to join ASAP!

Admins, the reason for the post in each region is these are national meet ups. A chance to make new friends from across the country and to share in a road tour adventure.

Radio to buy for these trips

VHF radio. We use the Boefang U5r with the longer antenna. This is an investment that you and your buddies can use to go on future drives as well. We use open frequencies to comply with using bigger radios. These can be found on Amazon for $26 dollars. Add the long antenna for more range and its $50 or less.

BaoFeng UV-5R Dual Band Two Way Radio (Black)

Friendly reminder to sign up for the event. At the end of April we have to release the rooms we did not sell. This means you are on your own for a room and will be paying around 15% more than the rest of the group. You also might not find a room.

We do have some good news, we were able to negotiate down one hotel more to save an additional $85 off the price. Website has been updated to show this great news.

Current numbers claimed.
