    Sounds like most folks are comfortable with Rampart Res and no one said it doesn't work for them, so let's make it official.

    Fri-Sun, 14-16 Jan 2011
    Rampart Reservoir
    (maps above...I can make more detailed ones if needed)

    Pot Luck Dinner on Saturday Night

    Expect lows of 0F...we'll check the forecast as it gets closer.

    Directions...it's pretty easy to find. Plan on 30 minutes from Woodland Park.
    - Drive to Woodland Park on Hwy 24
    - On the Southeast of Woodland Park, on Hwy 24, you'll see a McDonalds...turn onto Baldwin St (it deadends into 24 at a traffic light).
    - Drive north on Baldwin for about 5 miles, not making any turns. You can just follow the signs from here and ignore the rest of these directions...
    -- You'll pass the school on the right and a few neighborhoods.
    -- After the neighborhoods, this becomes Rampart Range Road.
    -- At one point, you'll come to a "sort-of" Y in the road, where it becomes a dirt road if you go almost-straight, and the paved road curves sharply to the right. STAY ON THE PAVED ROAD. There's a sign here pointing to Rampart Reservoir. You'll start climbing up a pretty steep hill. Look at the house on the right...they have a pretty cool ice garden.
    -- This becomes a dirt road.
    - About 5 miles from McDonald's (I think it's just under 5 miles), you'll see a sign for a right turn towards Rampart Reservoir. Just follow the signs.
    - The road to Rampart Reservoir will be on the left, with a big sign at the intersection. At the intersection, you'll see a small parking area and a big gate across the paved road. Crawl thru the gate and start walking!

    If you want a map of the area, go to Google Maps and "Get Directions" from "McDonalds near Woodland Park" to "Rampart Reservoir."

    I got the hall pass from the wife to go but the schedule at work says NO! I am working nights and I'm scheduled to work both Friday and Saturday night. I'm beginning to think that the group hangs are not in my future... I will try again next time...

    Rampart Reservoir

    Confirming.

    I plan to hit the road about 10AM Friday. That should get me to the TH a little after 11:00 if the roads are clear.
    I will head to the Thunder Ridge CG, dump my gear, and start looking for firewood.

    Jeff - Friday is the 14th. So it should be 14th-16th if it is Fri-Sun. I get back late Saturday, the 15th so probably will not make it.

    If anyone is staying Sunday night into Monday, I might be able to come up Sunday morning.
