F150 instead of tj
Coming to colorado in 3 weeks, staying in drake. Our plan is to hike and tour rmnp. Along with some easy 4wheels drive trails in the area. I was ok with this until I spent all morning looking at jeep pics in colorado! Now I'm thinking I am going to want my jeep out there. So I need advise from people that have been to the area, will I enjoy the area just as much in my f150 or will I wish I brought the jeep with us. Major issues with bringing the jeep are; doubles the fuel bill to and from Michigan,more stressful trip with a heavy trailer in tow. Thanks, Mike
Depends how gnarly you want the trip to be. I'd suggest checking out http://www.traildamage.com and figuring out what trails you want to run. Based on that, decide if it's worth dealing with the jeep and trailer, or running easier trails (while still having fun!) but having a less stressful and expensive trip. Keep in mind that anything of high altitude is likely to still have snow on it in 3 weeks, which may make it either really hard, or impossible.
Thanks guys, I'm thinking of the easier stuff anyhow, also bringing dirtbikes out to ride mx at a few tracks to the east. So I think the truck and bikes will be good. Not into pin striping the brand new f150!
Not a smoker, this applies to campfires I assume also. Any suggestions to destinations in the area. We have at train ride planned in Georgetown. I also have the funtrecs book for the area and plan on driving the old Fall River road and some of the storm mountain since we are staying near there. How much snow is on trail ridge?
