Snow Camping - Rock Creek Hills Rd - 3/22/14 Weekend

Can't wait for spring or summer? Getting the itch? Want to test your winter survival skills? Ready to pull your sled behind your SUV? Want to target practice?

Snow camping can be very enjoyable if done properly.

This area is very easy to get to with most cars, but a stock SUV is recommended since the area is so fun to explore. If you don't have an SUV, you can still join us...You can park in Jefferson and we'll pick you up and transport you in. If you choose to do this, please email me offline so we can schedule a pickup time since cell coverage can be spotty.

I'll be arriving at the location on 3/21/14 at about 12:00 to secure our spot for the weekend. We do want the biggest camp ring :-)

All types of camping are allowed and children are too. Please do kind in mind there will be alcohol at this event.

    What a great trip! Snowed a little on Friday night, but the rest of the weekend was beautiful. Tons of Colorado sunshine. Thanks to Mile High Jeep club for taking us on as a stray. I'm glad we went into town to pickup a few things and met such kind people.

      Thanks, we've tested everything and it would seem that it has gone kaput... Without heat we'd freeze to death! LOL I am super bummed about missing this. :(

    Hi, I will not be going on this trip. The group is new to me, and I would feel more comfortable with more people. Thanks.

      Thank you. I hope you had a great trip; can't wait to actually go on one. I have to work hard at work & grad school to be able to go on weekends. Kathleen

    Hi Joe, thanks for letting us know about necessaties to bring like firewood. How many miles in do we need to hike, or are the cars parked at the campsite. I can meet in the designated Sat. am location you suggested. I plan to go if at least another woman goes. Thanks, Kathleen

      Hi Kathleen and all! TGIF! We are leaving at 11 from Denver. I suspect we'll lose a signal by 1 today. I'll check the site at that time to see our meet situation. Thanks Joe

    Is anyone going wee-early Saturday morning?

    March 16, 2014

    • Joe C.

      Well, what type of camping are you going to do? The overnight lows will be in the 20's, so anything warm is very important (including boyfriend!). Please bring plenty of firewood (this applies to everyone), a set of dry clothes is always good and personal chairs for around the campfire. There's a small convenience store in Jefferson (this is where you turn left from 285) that we can meet at. What time would you like for us to meet you there. I'm an early bird, so any time is good.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
