Victor, CO has been on the radar for some time. An old mining community out side of Creede, CO.

I'm posting this trip up in response to having to postpone the train trip this year due to covid-19. Other than it being a place on the radar to check out ( only have looked at the maps for the area loosely) don't know much about Victor and the surrounding mining community. So lets go explore. My current days off are Friday and Saturday (19th and 20th). so that's when i'll be able to lead this trip.

Current thought is to start outside of Canon City/Penrose to take Phantom Canyon into Victor. From there, it's open. I just need to be back in Denver Saturday evening to be ready for work Sunday.

To keep with current guidelines, will limit this run to 12 vehicles and ask that we practice proper social distancing/face masks when appropriate.

To make it up for the friends that won't be able to attend the C&TS train trip due to me postponing it, i'm giving them first dibs at this run. Then will open to others that want to join.

Current list that I have for the run:

Current list:

Going:

@Corbet
@Old40Dog

I’d like to attend but will not be able to commit until much closer to departure.

So on that note if others want in I’ll give up my spot, just keep me on the “bubble”

Perry, my wife and I are in for this. And since you need to leave on Saturday if anyone wants to go another night we could do Gold Camp rd from Cripple Creek to Colorado Springs and camp on Gold camp somewhere. Tried to run that road years ago in April but got denied with gate closed. I am assuming no real 4wheeling since we would be driving our 4th gen runner for comfort. At least it has some good A/T’s on it now.

Awesome Dave, got you on the list. Will appreciate the help regarding the mines.

Bummer Kurt! Are you guys going to do anything since we've postponed the train run?

Put me in line for next available spot please!

Will save a spot for you just in case.

We planned on taking a few days to camp that weekend with no real agenda, so this sounds like fun if there's room. Kinda depends on how the cruiser is doing. Fired it up for the first time sunday, but it needs an exhaust and some break in time. I'm optimistic.

@kurtnkegger I am not sure when I can get away on the 12th - have business mid-day but lets get a crew together and not have your vaca time go to waste
