Pikes Peak, about 100 miles one way. There may be a fee to get to the top. Mt Evans was free. The mangiest looking sheep up there too.

I hope the 'Group" site has a shitter! From looking at google earth, there is a space isolated from the civilized motor home sites but no place to send one to Cleaveland.
When nature calls, I like to answer, not hike to plug the pipe.

They assured me that extra porta poopers would be brought in as needed. From what I understand they would be closer than Cleveland...

I'm debating tent or cabin. Any suggestions on tents, sleeping bags, etc?

I have a Half Dome Plus from REI. It's a great tent. I bought it a couple years ago as a "last year's model". It was less than half price.

+1 on the half dome plus... I paid $130 for mine and it works great, packs small and is light for its size.
