Thrusdays Drive up

Thursday is anyone getting together for the ride up. I know last year there were several groups that got together to ride up at the same time. Is there any groups doing that this year? It really is more fun in a group.

Teresa and Baby

I'll join you!

Teresa,

I just signed up and I'm also planning on going up on Thursday. What time were you planning on heading up?

Thursday drive up

I'd like to go on Thursday, too--what time and where do we meet to start up?

Besides Golden, are there any folks who are driving up from south or southeast Denver? We'd like to be in a drive up group if we can.

Well i am in the Westminster Arvada Aeria and as far as time i was thinking morning any time between 7am and 11:59am... and we can meet just about anyware. a good place is the parking lots there at I70 and morrison rd. on the south east parking lot. Just a sugestion but i am open on time so when ever anyone want to leave is good..I dont think we will have any trouble spotting each others cars in the parking lot. The other thing is we can meet at a starbuks or someplace like that.

Thurs Drive up

Teresa,
We could meet at the parking lot you mentioned--is that a park n ride? We're not familiar with that area, so any geographical info you can pass on would be helpful. We like the Starbucks idea too--a cuppa for the road sounds good.
How about a meet up at 10am?

Two possibilities

I'm up for 10:00 AM on thursday. Just let me know which parking lot. There are two ways we can go. If we want more twisties we can take highway 6 until it meets up with I-70 or we can take the faster route straight up I-70.

I'm not much for Starbucks. I like my coffee with less burn beans in it. I have a lady friend who has a coffee house in Edgewater. She surves pastries and breakfast there. We could all meet up there if you'd like.

well the parking lot i was thinking about is were I70cuts through the mountain were you can see the diferent rock layers. and even hike up the path to really look at them . there are 3 lots the one i was thinking about is Stegosaurus Lot, I-70 and Morrison Rd . you get off I 70 at Morrison rd go left under the highway and the nterance to the lot is just a little ways past that. The coffie house sounds like a good place too. I am open to eather. 10am sounds like a good time to leave. I dont know the rought up highway 6 but i bet it is beautifull so that puts Manniac in the lead. I have 2 radios incase someone need to barrow one for the drive up. Eather place were we decide to leave from i am shure the drive up will be a good way to start the weekend.

Stegasaurus lot it is

Okay then it's all set 10:00 at the Stegasaurus lot it is. Well have to back track a little bit to get back to highway 6 but not to far

Teresa if you still want to meet at the coffee house we can. It's called Angies Place and it's just West of Sheridan Blvd. on the South side of 25th ave. In the first building West of the Edgewater public parking lot. I'll be there around 8:30 so I can have a chance to get a bit to eat, before heading up the mountain. Let me know if you're planning on joining me
