I decided to start an adventure thread for Peryl.

First post:

Today Lil P and I took the bus on a 100 mile cruise to break in the engine and transaxle a little more before we hit the road tomorrow for 9 days. We took a nice drive north through the mountains to Vallecito Reservoir. Bus was quite, temps were good and it ran smooth.

Chilling in the bus, during a rain storm. Seems like a good time to update.


We left Friday afternoon to 4CORE, the bus event I put on. We showed up to camp outside of Silverton, Co around 5ish. Most of the guys were there already and the got us a nice spot. We chilled, ate and shared stories over a fire. Saturday we got going around 10ish. We went over Red Mountain Pass into Ouray where we stopped at K J Rovers distillery for a private tour and tasting. After that we all went to lunch then headed towards Ridgway in a major rain storm. We gassed up in Ridgway and headed over Owl Creek Pass. We found a nice spacious camp spot that had plenty of room for all 10 vehicles. Sunday we headed out around 10 again and headed towards Rt 50, where 7 of the buses split off to head home. Greg, Bob and I headed south on a dirt road for 28 miles and had a nice lunch in Lake City. Sunday night we found a nice spot on the banks of Lake San Cristable, man was it beautiful. Today we took Hwy149 south to Creede where we stopped for lunch and some shopping. From Creede we headed south to North Clear Creek Falls the west to Penitente Canyon to camp. Still have 5 more nights of camping in this adventure to come.
