I had a couple issues with my poor dog on the trip, but I thoroughly enjoyed the drive on Saturday.

Here are a few of my pics.

These guys were surely enjoying the "parade."

That trailer just seemed to happily bounce along the path.

Camit34, I took nearly the same pic as you, mere moments later! (I saw your bus at the shop, but was in a big hurry to get to Colorado Springs, and was afraid to leave the sick Great Dane alone in the bus!

As much as this is not really an organized event, here are some of the other random trips that I think may be responsible for the past weekend.

big bus Mike inspired us with his
New Mexico: Mt Withington Snow adventure. Feb 3rd-5th, 2012
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=490963

and Chris and I followed up that trip with this one
Colorado: San Juan Mtns trail trip Sept 22-23, 2012
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=523315

and Mike held another Snow Adventure
New Mexico Overland Snow Adventure Mar 8-10 , 2013
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=540323

After a bit of a hiatus Rich & Manfred took up the torch with the
Colorado: Medano Pass Muster July 31-Aug 2, 2015
https://www.thesamba.com/vw//forum/viewtopic.php?t=614296

so we returned to the S.San Juans but in Summer instead of Fall
Colorado: Southern San Juans Trip II, July 29-31, 2016
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=647995

...and that led us to this Southwest Colorado off road adventure.
Thanks for a new route, Rich!

I'm so happy this trip has grown to what it has today. I had no idea BBM put trips on back is 2012 and 13, until this trip. Super stoked the Wander Bus crew make it, it not the same without them! There has to be more pics out there, please post them, we all want to see them.

Hope to see all the front range crew at the Buses at The Brewery event in two weeks. I'm hoping to make the Friday night campout but not 100% on that yet.

Can't wait for next years trip! Gunnison?

It seems as if the whole crew had a blast. Not sure if my type one could have crossed the water due to low clearence. Other then that it would not have been and issue.
If the GMC would have tagged along I would have been banished for sure.

Gunnison has some great territory north and south of town. Good idea. My Bus is running, looks like my distributor is not advancing correctly however.

I think so, Mike is hunting up a good German 009 for me. That is the last barrier to my participation. Sure have missed driving my Bus.
