Damn, I wish I was out there with you guys. My Dad called yesterday bragging up releasing 27 trout, including Browns up to 28 inch. I so want to drive my GTO out for a summer. His place is down 24 close to the "Fairplay/Hartsel/Jefferson metropolitin"area....
That run to Decker/285 is sweet.

Dang.

So what is Hwy-105 (Perry Park Rd), from Monument to Seladia like?

.
Its pretty good, but depending on the day has lots of traffic. some corners, some straights, a good mix of stuff.

So, to meet in Castlerock at the Factory Outlets (unless someone knows a better spot) Mapquest says it will take ~45 minutes to reach Garden of the Gods from there. I am think leave the Outlets at 10:00am to be safe. So show up around 9:45am. The address is:

[873-899] New Memphis Ct
Castle Rock, CO 80108

I attached a map, meet in the parking lot where the red X is. Make a post if you plan on meeting up there, so we have a head count. So far the list is:

The List:
Scyry, Ryan, 05' IBM
CHA-LEE, ???, 05' QS
Havoc1979, ???, 06' ???

*EDIT*

Forgot to add, if anyone on the SE side of Denver wants a ride down there and back, let me know. I know we have a few gimpy goats around atm, and don't want to keep people from going because of it.

Yeah the construction on 67 sucks. I thought it was going to be done sooner than that. Also I am not sure about Garden of the Gods road I believe it was under construction when I was up there in aug.

Are you talking about the road that goes from I-25 to the Park?
Or are you talking about the road that goes thru the park?

I think he means the road to the park. It is under construction. Much better now (as of this past weekend) than before (last weekend).

That whole section of I-25 between Woodmen and Garden of the Gods is also being completely reworked, so traffic is always a bear.

Yeah people coming down from denver make sure to give yourself some extra time. Traffic is terrible depending on the time and day. it always seems to be backed up though.

I will be meeting everyone at the visitor center. I'm like 3 miles from there.

That way will be traffic and construction free. Shouldn't be a problem at all.
