    OK

    I am in, I can do any of those weekends.

    Buffalo Creek area along Colorado Trail would be fun.

    I'm pretty sure I'm in for the 8th-9th. Might have to make it a one night event, but I'll see if I've got any wiggle room.

    Ok - we'll leave it open for another day to see if there are any dissenters, before we firm up 8-9 May...need to make a decision tomorrow b/c that date isn't far away!

    We calling it good for 8-9 May, then? We had more than that vote in the poll...does this mess up anyone's plans? Don't forget (my wife reminded me) that it's Mother's Day! But she still gave me the hall pass.

    Any other location suggestions?

    As an aside for Colorado campers, this was posted on whiteblaze:

    Park requires bear-proof canisters for campers

    ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo.—People camping overnight in Rocky Mountain National Park's backcountry will have to carry bear-proof food canisters starting Friday.
    Park officials say increasing numbers of bears have been getting into people's food, resulting in conflicts between the animals and people. Two men were seriously injured in 2003 by a bear that park rangers believe was used to rummaging through campers' food.

    The men had stored their food correctly.

    Food canisters have been required at some backcountry camp sites because of bears. Park officials say some campers don't hang their food from trees to keep bears out of it. Sometimes there are no trees nearby.

    Campers will have to show they have a food canister when they get their backcountry camping permit.

    Any location is fine by me. Somewhere with some good bouldering nearby would be sweet - if it's mostly car camping, we can definitely throw some crash pads in the car.

    I'd kinda like at least a short hike in...maybe 2-5 miles? Anyone else?

    Bumping this one up - any thoughts on locations?


    Also, Jeff or another mod, it might be a good idea to edit my original post in this thread to reflect the date and that we are still looking for locations.
