Understood

And we are two years out. If we have even preliminary discussions with the locals and come to a hand shake agreement this year, we will be well ahead when we begin formal planning next summer.

I spoke with my contact at the FJ organization. He said he has already mentioned it to the Hotel manager and we will meet with him next week. Will try to get a price on the rooms and the rental of the tents. If you remember the tent that DDM had at the National, we use them for our nightly meetings at the FJ event. Will fit into your outdoor ideas.

Please try to keep any frequent traveler points for us unless you can trade them for a significant rate reduction from the normal senior rate.

I am isolated up here in Canada, I should of attended the 2015 NASSM event as it was the closest, Arkansas was just a little to far away..... I would certainly entertain coming down to Colorado, seeing as I am 700 miles directly north of Denver.

SF is cruising the mountains looking at locations around Ouray. He sent me a couple of pictures. Don't ask me how he created the rainbow but it is Bob!

Okay the Dragons are for Carol.

The rainbow picture was just as you see it. I had parked the car after my drive, came back to put it in the trailer and there it was. Snapped the picture, and in about 15 seconds the rainbow was gone.

I am not sure if the pot of gold is in the car or I put a pot of gold in the car, most likely the latter. Remember, my Sky is a no mods car. This picture is at the Ute Mountain Casino just inside the state line, about 20 miles from the historic four corners area.

The second photo is near Ouray, Colorado, at Red Mountain Pass, about 15 miles from Ouray on 550.

The group is from down town Ouray. I have not had time to count the restaurants, or the hotels, but seem adequate. We have nearly 400 trucks here this week. And I have no idea how many other off roaders there are, but the streets are packed pretty much all day.

I have not met with the Hotel yet. Plan to do that Saturday. Will try to get some pictures on Saturday of the Hot Springs pool, the KOA and other areas of interest. It has just been a very busy trip, just walked in the door and have another run at 620AM tomorrow.

We are having unusual rainfall this trip. Normally a couple times during the week we are here for this event is clouds up and rains for about a half hour, clears off and is beautiful. So far this week it has rained every single day, and considerably more than I have ever seen it. Been here 10 years with the Summit and came many times before. Hoping it is getting it out of its system this year.

We are going to have some club shirts made. We do this about once a year. Our plan is to include the RMSSC logo and the logo for the 2018 event. Since we don't have a design for 2018 yet, we are inviting input from one and all. Something with a Colorado theme but other than that the aperture is wide open. Share your ideas / designs here and on the 2018 FB page.
