I'm finishing packing tomorrow. I'll be heading out Sunday morning since it's only a 6 hour drive for me.

What route are you taking? I'm planning to head SW out of the Springs to US 50 and head west from there.

We got pushed back to Wednesday, wife got suckered into a meeting. We typically go the 285 route, but will make that determination based on traffic conditions at RT. I'll have APRS kicking, KE0LSU. :)
