    I don't know what the snow situation will be like in July, but I thought the North Loop in the Indian Peaks Wilderness was awesome. There's a report in Trip Reports forum from 2 years ago.

    Info on the web says all overnight camping in the back country requires a permit. We had to have one a few years ago when we hiked the north loop.

    THFKAfood can tell you where to get permits.

    Nice trail and looked to be a fun outing.

    Maybe it's just me, but I'm not understanding why you would set your stove down amongst all the dry leaves and ground cover and not clear an area around...

    After our lunch, Bob took me back to the Judy Gaskill bridge and the west TH of section 1. He told me it was about 3 miles to the top where I could make camp for night. Didn't ride much of that 3...

    As you will see in the video, Lance came up to a sharp right turn downhill, unsure of how to negotiate it. He stops to look at it while Bob rides up behind him and you can hear Bob giving him advice....

    Forgot to mention, Lance aquired his trail name this trip. Gourdhead.

    I made a video of our section 2 ride and hang. Chuck and Lance did pretty good for being on borrowed bikes. I think Lance went down a few times, mostly due to the bike not being set up for what we...

    That all sounds great Bob. Glad to hear we'll have some options for exploring after setting up camp.

    50-70 mph winds? Is that what you guys dealt with last weekend?

    I won't be using a fly rod, but a spinning real. Easier to use in the wind.

    Have you tried the Klemheist? Holds better than a Prussic and its what I use on my tarp. Turned Flexytoy on to it on our winter hang, altho I couldn't tie it properly for the life of me at the time....

    Glad you guys had a nice meet up. Sorry to hear about the wind. You must be getting it from us down here in Texas, as the last few days has been rediculously windy.

    75% chance of snow on Sunday. No estimate on how much. Hi of 45*. Then for those of us staying another day, sec 1 may be iffy.

    Given current forecast, I vote to see how next week shapes up.

    Have to say, I was actually hoping for a couple of bluebird days.

    What locations are you looking up in your weather search?

    I think my quilts are just 40*. But they're what I've been using on all my trips, even our winter hangs.

    No worries Donna, I knew when I ordered it it was too late for this trip. Enjoy your down...

    Just ordered a 2qzq UQP myself. Don't know what their delivery time is like so I may not get to use it for this trip.

    Its a lot easier on my *** than the original seat. Bought some 50mm rise bars too that I'm waiting on.

    I've been able to lower my pannier weight to 8.5 lbs per side with carrying just a liter of water per side instead of a half gallon. I've moved my quilts onto the handlebars to get some weight off...

    If you want it to be able to support 2 people you need to be sure of a stands weight rating. The specific hammock too. I see no rating info on the rig at that link.

    I would think you'd want to look at something like the Byer hammock stand. There are less expensive types of this stand but still, I think $100 for stand and hammock is going to be hard to find.

    I agree you should go ahead and opt for doors. You're only thinking about this specific trip. If you don't use the doors this trip, you may wish you had them on others.

    Doors make it nice if you...

    The bag is "water resistant". If I don't come up with a "dry" bag of the right size before the trip, I guess I could line it with a plastic bag.

    Right now the panniers are 11 lbs per side with a...

    I think I have my bike ready. I could change things up a bit by the time the trip rolls around but I think it would do well as it sits.

    Whats the capacity of a large bike bottle?

    Meeting at your house Bob sounds good to me.

    I have a double cab truck that will seat 4 comfortably and we can get the bikes and gear in the back.

    Cool video. Enjoyed it. I'd like to try hanging "up" in a tree sometime like that. Doesn't look like your rope system is all that elaborate, so no serious suspension system knowledge required.

    I saw that, but I'm thinking, it being a 1 lane road each direction, and it being so twisty, getting behind a local thats in no hurry, that going on to Idaho Springs might be faster. You think?
