If I knew the XJ would make the trip (questionable at this point) I'd follow you out there.

Back in '04 I took a trip out there in my '04 TJ and wandered all over the Colorado Springs and surrounding area, with a brief trip up to WY where I got lost (in a good way). Since I was solo, I focused more on hiking destinations than wheeling, but I did do some things that I couldn't have done had I not done the '04 Daniel Boone Jeep Jamboree, as far confidence in my ability was concerned. I remember seeing your report on your trip and was truly envious of where you went. The "hardest" thing I did was go up Mt Herman Rd (I think that's what it was) and branched off to several of the forest service roads.

One of these days I should do a 4 year old trip report.

I'm sure my 5 y/o would rather do French Lick in our old TJ than the XJ. Still, it'll be fun to see how the XJ does...
