Utards Going to the 2010 Gathering in Montrose, Co.??

I thought I'd start this tread to use as place we can discuss plans for the 2010 VStrom Gathering in Montrose, Co. June 25-27, 2010. I will keep a current list of those Utards that will be attending on this first post.

If you all would like, we should plan a local ride soon and discuss each others plans for the event over lunch. I think it will be a great time and I would like to ride with as many of you as possible sometime during the event.

Utards attending:
ScottG-Wee Strom
Mike Vanderpoel-Suzuki Intruder 1500(ScottG's buddy)
Satch-Wee Strom
Ronin149-Wee Strom
Spineguy-Vee Strom
Cavehamster-Vee Strom
Robishaw-FJR

Current Bikes:
09 BMW F800GS
1978 Yamaha DT250E(project bike)

In addition to the list of "Utards", can you also start a list of just plain old regular guys from Utah that are going and put me on that one?

My room is booked and I will be attending. I just need to pay for my dinners and start getting my gear organized. I like the idea of a ride sometime soon to discuss plans. Of course, the ride would be open to those going and those not. Let's just get a ride going soon!

I will be there.

As I've told you many times before, the journey is the destination. So to answer your question: Yes, we are there.

Scott,
Bravo for stepping up to the plate and putting this together. Ronin 149 and I will be making our way to Montrose via Moab and the LaSal Mountain range.
Cavehamster!! love to have you join us on this trip again this year. I will be out of town quite a bit between then and now, but I will be there.
Still hoping to hear that one of my Utah bretheren will be joining me on my trip to Ankorhage.

Satch and I have a plan to leave Weds June 23rd and head toward Moab spend Weds night camping in the area. Thursday head to the four corners area and then to Durango area for the night at this place http://www.bluesprucervpark.com/index.php we have room for 2 or 3 more riders in the cabin we have reserved. Any of you are welcome to join us that night. Friday we will head to Montrose Via HWY550(million dollar hwy) where we will be staying at the Hoilday Inn Express with the rest of the Sromtroopers for the rally. I'm sure we could meet up along the way somewhere.

I'm going for sure. Right now, I am planning on riding down Thursday evening. Was this your plan as well, spineguy?

There is just too much fun riding to be had in that area, I am really happy they chose to hold it there. I've spent a good deal of time in the area, so if anyone has any questions about roads or etc, feel free to ask.

Cavehamster!!!
Good to hear from you muchacho. I will be leaving sometime Thurs afternoon or evening. Jeff is planning on leaving in the mourning and findind a spot to camp earlier in the day. You can impart you riding recommendations to us on the Thurs over beers.
I was thinking of meeting Jeffery at Moab brewery for dinner, if we can be there by 8 or 9. Keep in touch.
I have to be out of town every other week for the next 5 weeks, so I will be ready to ride when this comes up.

Works for me, I can bail out of work after lunch no problem. I'll probably just gear up and go into work, and you can get in touch with me when you are headed down. I work in North Salt Lake right near the BMW bike dealer.

Alright, getting close to time to figure things out.

I was in Moab for the weekend, and shot up Red Mountain Pass south of Ouray for giggles last night, the road is clear and looking good!

Spineguy, were you planning on camping the whole thing? I finally submitted my cash for the meals and whatnot, just trying to nail down where I will be sleeping and etc

Any further interest in a lunch planning or something soon?

Now off to sort through the 1400 photos I took in Moab this weekend... sheeesh...

Coming from Cali

Hey Scott, Im planning on heading out to Colorado from Southern California on Wednesday and am Gorilla camping all the way. I am heading through Flagstaff and then up through 4 corners and then to Durango myself on Thursday. Maybe we can connect somewhere enroute? Any room left on the porch of your cabin in Durango?
