This trip was formerly called the SW Colorado Off Road Adventure. But the guys pushed for a new name and 4CORE (4 Corners Off Road Event) was born.

This years trip will start in Silverton, Co. Friday nights camp out will be on FR585, South Mineral Creek rd. There is dispersed camping along the road and we値l pick a spot that痴 large enough for the group. Saturday we値l head north on HWY 550 north over Red Mountain Pass and descend into Ouray. We値l continue through Ouray to Ridgway. From Ridgway we値l Head west on FR858 to Owl Creek Pass. We値l cross the pass and camp along the road near Silver Jack Reservoir on Saturday night. Sunday we値l continue north on 858 to HWY 50 and head west to CR 887, Alpine Plateau Rd. We値l take CR 887 south to HWY 149 and head south to Lake City. We値l break off at Lake City and head our separate ways.

This trip is open to all VW buses or Vanagons stock height or higher, Baja bugs and any other street legal Vw that can handle off roading. This is a fun family event, so bring your kids and dogs (good dogs only please). It's all about the fun!

Dates: 7/26 - 7/28
Location: FR585 (South Mineral Creek Rd)
Weather: might be sunny, might rain, might hale, might snow, be prepared!
Final departure: 9am Sat
Any changes, even minor ones, will be posted

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Rich P.

Hey Rischparker-
I live in Ouray. I drive a '78 DC and also happen to own the distillery here in town. If you guys want/need a breakfast/lunch stop let me know!

I can coordinate a food truck buddy of mine to provide food for the stop and also have tools for folks as needed! I'll try and plan to join you guys, but it's the busy season!!

Cheers,
John

Another John with a '78 DC, here. Now that the truck is back on the road, we might actually make it on this trip! Smile

Is anyone up for doing a Facebook event for it? I think Mike did it two years ago.

Hi everyone! I added the event in two groups to try to spread the word.

SouthWesty (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2064970426933325/)

Buses on the Rio: VW Bus Camp (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2268899516674256/)

I made SouthWesty for VW people in Southwest CO, Four Corners, etc. so we can get information about events and have caravans.

Please join the groups if you're interested and check out the Events! Also feel free to share the events and also let me know about any other events so I can add them.

Smile

Happy to see you local Vanagon guys chime in and show interest. Pretty sure I met owokie last summer near Test Tracks, don稚 think I know rbrock.

Don稚 think I知 gonna have the 71 done this summer, it is currently completely covered it snow. So, I値l most likely be in the 68.

I sold my bus and I知 not 100% sure if my new bus will be finished in time for the event. If it痴 not done it won稚 be from a lack of trying. I ordered just about every part I need for it today. If the bus is not done I think I値l be able to borrow one for the event, so I知 covered there.

I sent John in Ouray a text last week, he said he壇 get back to me with some options but I haven稚 heard back from him yet. I値l contact him again in a week or so but I知 hoping for a tour of the distillery and maybe a breakfast truck. Ouray is small, I figure we can hang out there for an hour or two there doing the tourist thing.

Here痴 a pic of Peryl, the 71 patina wagon.

Looking forward to hanging out again! See you in 2ish months!

New Bus looks great! Good luck with it!

Peryl went to the shop today! I致e spent countless hours on it already and still hoping to have her done by the event. Transaxle is done and the engine is 90% complete. Still lots to do, but things are moving along.
