Which is non-rustic? Caribou? ....oh...your driveway!! well, we may want to be a little more rustic.

We would of course love something hidden and scenic and quiet and off the beaten path,... but we are also going to need to be close to Boulder so we can see friends and attend the game Saturday night.

This is likely just for one night's accomodations.

Caribou is boondocking at its finest. I took the R turn at the Y in the road while fishing last year and did manage to get the new van is some pretty challenging terrain. My first lesson in 18 point turns with an EB!!



(Ignore the camera hams.)



General idea of the scenery. We were fishing a small creek down in the brush.

I would definitely recommend the Caribou site, Kelly Dahl if it's still open, and Rainbow Lakes. 29 miles sounds like a haul but its really not in the foothills of Colorado. Switzerland trail might be closer by the crow but the drive up Sunshine Canyon will be slower than Boulder Canyon. Gross Reservoir is biking distance from my house and scenic as well and located on the backside of the Flatirons in Boulder. This might be a slightly warmer option than the sites farther west.

I'd love to check out the rig so make sure you post when and where you might be and maybe we can have an impromptu Colorado rally with Jage and Stanton, etc!

We should be arriving in Boulder one week from Friday, on 03 Oct, probably later afternoon.

...but I am not really sure when. We will probably stop by and visit some folks I work with on Friday.

The football game is not until 5pm MT on Saturday, so we will have all Saturday morning and up until it is time for some tailgating. I think a little gathering would be fun.

I'd love to but it looks like we're going to head to Aspen for the weekend to check out the colors.

We were up by Nederland/Caribou/Rocky Mtn Nat Park today and the aspens were absolutely AMAZING! You should be able to catch some of the colors while you're here next weekend.
