We should throw a meet N greet around that time. I would love to meet you. Blake lives in Longmont and if he isn't wheeling, he would probably be in.

Is there a day that works better for you? Generally weekends will work better for a meet N greet for the Denver guys.

Or should we go wheelin Middle St. Vrain/Coney flats? I have a spare seat you could use. I will have to check and see when MSV/Coney flats will be open... Or maybe Blake and I can open it up!

I will post up on Colorado Full Size Jeep with a link to this thread to keep it current.

XJChad, could you come a little early?

I will be busy for about 3-4 hours in the middle of each week day, but don't have plans for Saturday the 18th. We will be in the "city Jeep"(98 Grand) and the wife is having treatments done, so don't think she'll want to do a run, though it does sound like a reason to return...
LMAO, I just asked the youngest if we should do a meet and greet and his response was" hell yah!!!" That's my boy...
We are staying in the Value Place Denver, CO (Firestone), in Firestone. Don't know if that helps any plans...
Wow, this is where I miss the dancing banana...

June 18th sounds good to me!

If it's a Meet n Greet, I can bring the limo. If it's mild wheeling', I can bring the Touareg.

Forgive my potential ignorance, but why not wheeling and a meet up? Surely there'd be somewhere close and quick?

Maybe we could meet up somewhere a little more Colorado esque? With some altitude?

There is a possibility we could be there on the 18th but it is all pending on my wifes work schedule.
The business she works for now is in the process of being purchased by a much larger company which she is crucial to the changeover. She manages the business and does all of the payroll, scheduling and whatnot. So if they get everything smoothed out early enough we should be able to be there a little sooner. If they hit any bumps it will delay our plans. The actuall purchase and changeover is supposed to begin later this week.

I did post this up on Colorado Full Size Jeep board.

I can do a meetup on the 18th. Maybe we could take your kids off your hands for the day after the meet & greet! Wear them out for the trip home or something.

XJChad... if you can't make it its not the end of the world. Maybe next time. I understand about work transitions... you just never know what is going to come up and what level of involvement is needed at any given time.

Ethan, you can bring the limo the MSV/Coney flats... just take the turns wider than normal! I wanna see the looks on peoples faces when you wheel that rig! hilarious!

Gabe, I know you will be there! LOL

If you can't fix it with a hammer or duct tape you have an electrical problem.

I would be up for something on the 18th. Hopefully MSV and Coney will be open. There is also Switzerland trail. Nice easy ride.

Well lets schedule something... I think we should do the meet and greet a the Value Place parking lot at 119 and I25 on the north east corner of the intersection at 9:00am on Saturday June 18, 2016. That gives everyone a little time to muster and get some breakfast and you (Jeff) can sleep in and we will just appear in the parking lot.

Maybe from there, those that want to go wheel can head to Switzerland trail (I have never run) or MSV if it is open.

Sound like a plan?

We could meet up at my place in Longmont too, if that works for everyone. Closer to the trails and many of you have been there before.

BTW there is no way MSV will be open. We had a ton of snow this year and they usually don't open it until 4th of July ish anyway. But it would be nice if it was open.

I blew a hole in the Honcho's oil pan and the crank it hitting it, so I may not be able to take that out. Does anyone in the local area have an oil pan?

Yeah, and we can install it in the parking lot during the meet n greet. And then go break it some more.
