Thanks for organizing this run in our "backyard" Perry. We ended the run less than 20 minutes from home and had loads of fun. It was great to see old and make new friends.

Wow. Another fantastic GTR. Thanks, Perry, for putting on another fun run. We actually got into quite a bit of adverse weather, but it was good to see the mountains getting lots of rain.
I’ve got more pictures, but apparently we can only post up to 20 pictures per post.

(FOR THE WEB MASTER= This newer version of the Forum Software MORE THAN SUCKS@@#$%^&*()_ as I tried to put in just 2 photo uploads and continued to get a duplicate of the first one. ANYWAY WE CAN GO BACK TO THE OLD FORUM PAGES THAT ACTUALLY WORKED? I've spent over an 2 hours just trying to post 2 pics from our run! Last time I'll even try to share!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!with this crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dave, we're not going back to vBulletin. It's at the end of life as useful software. I can try to help you diagnose what's going on. It took you 2 hours to post 2 photos, and meanwhile Travis is putting up 20 photos per post.

Are you using a computer or a phone to post photos?
What browser are you using?

I can do a Zoom or GoToMeeting with you if you like. You can share your screen and I can watch your process to identify where things are going sideways. Or I can share my screen and post photos so you can see if there is anything different in my process.

Good trip with good people! Thanks to Perry @bh4rnnr for organising and leading this one. Also thanks to everyone involved, Brandi and I had a ton of fun. 695 miles door to door on the trip odometer.

For everyone that went to the mine Sunday, by chance remember seeing a small brown bag at all? Use it to store my memory cards etc and can't seem to find it. Hope it didn't fall out..,

Awesome, and good to see the 60 out there, hopefully it is serving you well Mike!
Thanks Marco. I am sure you have heard by now of a certain situation and cause of new color. Yes, I love this thing and feel very blessed to have gotten it. Runs like a champ (well, an RPM thing). I am taking the best care of it I can with great help of Brian B. Most everything the same, some different locations.
Hope you will have a chance to see it again, soon. Mike

After everyone left the cabins, Justin, Daine, Ben, and I hiked up to the old mine site to document it.
The over all site looked pretty cool.

There was a bunch of cool old equipment left abandoned outside. Including a really cool old International straight 6 gas powered double dually, which we managed to find the complete old hood for and re-united the two.

The old mill structure seamed extremely unsafe. The top roof was blown off and the top floor was falling down to the floor below along with a lot of heavy looking old equipment The walls looked like they were about to implode at any minute. So we just looked from outside.

Very cool. Where was this mine site? - I have been all over that part of Colorado and wasn't aware of any of this.

Is that chassis an old scout? It looks like old dana axles but that engine is throwing me. Kinda looks like an old Buick motor. (Rochester 2 barrel, front side distributor, fuel pump on driver's side)

Cool pics! It's amazing to see how cramped the cabs are in those huge trucks are compared with modern vehicles.

The mine shaft door was collapsed and crushed causing it to break away and allow access. But the entry is plugged with solid ice almost to the ceiling of the tunnel.
