Polaris ATV Forum July 2022 Colorado Trip

For all of you that may need to pick vacations for next year, July 20-31, 2022 will be the ride dates for out west.

Unknown at this time if we will ride in Colorado, Utah, or Arizona or a combination of all 3 states.

Any input for preference for planning purposes will be appreciated.

What is known at this time is you will need extra gas, a tent, camera, food to share, a ATV/UTV in good mechanical condition and want to ride and explore some beautiful scenery and have fun doing it.

LOL... You'll have to go now just for spite after those comments TN.
I've got hundreds of miles of some of the best mountain trails to be found anywhere right out my garage door. But there's nothing like riding in the BIG mountains. Its a long hard trip to get out there but I, and now apparently FPD, was hooked after the first trip several years ago. So much so that its become a regular summer pilgrimage for my crew to go hang out a couple weeks to ride in natural air conditioning with low humidity when its 100 degrees with 100% humidity around here and no fun at all to ride. 馃サ
I start bouncing around ideas about the next years trip and which other trails I may want to run or what I may do different while I'm still there lol. Not to mention you'll be right in the middle of some of the most awesome scenery to be found anywhere in the world.

What did you do with all that gas money you saved last year when the price got near $1.00. Or did you forget about that? You should have been putting that money in the bank for when the gas price once again went back up.
One of my old riding buddies saves his pocket change all year in a big jug. A couple weeks before travel time he lugs it to the bank to cash it in. Pretty much covers his trip every year lol.
We tease him a little about robbing the wife's piggy bank to go riding but whatever works for him is fine with me. :unsure:

Fuel prices may sorta put a damper on things FPD. I really love the high elevations, but we were considering the Black Hills this year. I've got forum friends that invited me to stay in their back yards lol. But its still kinda up in the air right now for my crew.
I'm not letting fuel prices determine if I go or not. One never knows if you'll be alive next year to still enjoy it.
Oh, I agree totally. Fuel prices are only a small annoyance as far as I'm personally concerned. It is more of a factor for some of my riding buddies though. I'm pretty sure I'll be out that way if I have to hitch a ride with one of my cross-country trucker friends lol. Just not sure what the final plans will be yet. I should know something more definite in the near future as I press them to get a plan together.
One started a new job a few months ago so he's got to get his boss used to the idea of him being gone for a couple weeks and the other has a spouse and grown kids telling him he's too old to be running across the country acting like a 20 something. I ain't buying either of those excuses and will be pressing them hard in the next few weeks lol. 馃榿

Do they measure true to size now they're mounted FPD?
Looks like my crew is going to have to postpone for about a month this year FPD. I just can't get everybody lined up for July. I want to see some detailed pics and a play by play of the action. I'm especially curious about the Black Hills... camping options, access to trails, crowds, trail conditions, etc. Be safe on the road and on the trail.
I appreciate the invite but I guess I'll have to wait. Thanks
