My girlfriend's family has been doing this for years and last summer I got to go along to a fairly small event, but it was such a blast. Sleeping in period correct canvas tents, muzzleloaders, tomahawk throwing contests, sitting around the campfire out in the woods, sausage gravy and eggs from a big cast iron skillet, mmmm. You really see and experience how life was 150+ years ago and how much fun you can have without TV, internet, cellphones etc.

I can totally see a group of unfamiliar wheelers hitting a clearing at the end of a trail stumble upon a rendezvous and seriously think for a second they've traveled back in time haha

The GF got me a muzzleloader kit for christmas and her dad and I are putting it together for this summer

Couple summers ago in Keystone, CO we went up Keystone Gultch Rd. We found a couple old mining shacks around the south bowl of the resort. In the distance you can see Breck.

Restoration = lots of $ & time thrown at the jeep. I know we all know this but it helps in the process to keep things in perspective.

(EDIT: Sorry I quoted the wrong Post. Yes. Those Pictured are F-4 Phantoms. My dad co-piloted on one, i think in Vietnam IIRC.)

I ment to quote this post:
The sole plane in the center photo is an F-101 Voodoo, the one laying on its side is an A-4 Skyhawk, probably a TA-4 judging by the paint scheme. I am a former charter pilot from the southeast and used to find from really neat stuff from the air, mark it on my planes GPS, and then go find it later. I joined the army kinda late in life after the economy went to **** and right now I'm stuck in Korea flying for the Army. I have found a lot of things over the years. I will have to think of some good ones to post to this forum. Great thread.

Mine shafts are not "unusual" Especially in Colorado. Most 4x4 trails were originally to get to the mines.
