Jen & JD moved to Colorado from Chicago in May of 2015 for work and brought with them a 2001 stock Jeep Wrangler that had been garage bound for two years. Within a month of arrival, all rusty 170,000 miles of it was shaking on Colorado trails and they've never stopped. As time as gone on, their 2001 TJ has been upgraded and a 2015 Jeep JK has been added to the family. JD works as a Systems Engineer for a cable company and Jen runs a business from their home during the week to pay the bills. When the weekend hits, they're almost always hitting the trail. When Sunday night rolls around, the question turns to, 'so what's next week?!'.

(within last 6 months)
Rule Ridge (05/18/2020)
Ran through here while updating and checking on trails in the area. No changes to note on the writeup but I will note that there was a LOT of ATV and bike traffic in the area. We were stopped from going all the way to Woodland Park as someone had broken their leg and the trail was blocked off. We turned around and headed out via Painted Rocks.
Manchester (Manchester Creek) (05/17/2020)
We were out in the area to get out of the house and check on trails in the area. There are no major changes to the trail to report at this time. There was a significant amount of small vehicle traffic all day.
Boulevard (05/17/2020)
Did this trail while updating trails in the area. No changes to the writeup at this time.
Metberry Gulch (05/17/2020)
A vehicle flipped over this weekend on Metbury. This should serve as a reminder to everyone not to underestimate any trail.
Rampart Range Road (05/06/2020)
Gates are open at the north and south ends of the trail.
Cedar Mountain Road (01/20/2020)
Jen and I went out for the first time in a few months and Cedar Mountain is easy in the winter, especially since there have not been a lot of snowstorms lately. The trail is packed well all the way through and there is more snow in general on the southern end of the trail but nothing very treacherous.
Rule Ridge (12/10/2019)
Rule Ridge was opened this year as part of the cutting area for Christmas Trees in Pike National Forest. My wife and I went out with our newly transplanted in-laws and got some great Christmas trees.
