things to not forget

Jut a few things that i may have forgotten last year had someone not made some sugestions. If you think you may need it an extra memory card and batteries for the camera. Extra film if you are using a non digital camera. Sun screen I didnt put it on for the drive up and got a nasty burnlast year. It is easy to do at the higher elivations. Burn cream just incase you forget the sun screen . Your radios and extra batteries if you dont have the rechargable kind. Your extra car key this is a good time to make certain it is recharges. For thoes who did the mount evans opening day dont forget your hats . Ok that is the last of the motherley things. See everyone there safe trip up.

All good suggestions Teresa. Another item usually forgotten is a light jacket (fleece) for the cool nights or the top of Mt Evans, where it will be cold (guaranteed). Good way to cool off!

Baby reminded me this morning for the few things for your baby. Double check tirer presure and all fluids. She also has a spunge in fact 2 of them to get bugs off. She will be very happy to share just like last year but wanted to remind everyone to not forget if they have one. The light jacket for the top of evans is a really good idea. I completley forgot about that. LOL well moms can forget things too. . I am shure though we will hear from Papa Jonathan soon too.

Looks like some rain gear may be in order also. Afternoon rains in the Colorado mountains are great for nap time.

I would strongly recommend a winter coat for the top of Evans. It was in the upper 30's last year at midnight and the wind was blowing big time (of course the top was down but still).
Cell phone car charger, bottle opener, camp chair, umbrella, sun glasses, hat and sweatshirt - other things to remember.

What about FRS/GMRS radios? Are they used and useful during the drives?
