    I am going to be in Colorado for a wedding in June of 2020. I am on track to be able to take 2 weeks off after and trying to decide where to go and explore.
    I will be starting in Denver on a Friday. Would like to camp and fish the majority of the time. Share your thoughts on what you would see or where you would go. And of course if someone wants to meet up for some or part I am good with that.

    Idea 1: Make my way from Denver to the other side of the state near Ouray by way of back roads and passes. Then head home from there.

    Idea 2: Go to Moab and wheel/camp. Stop in Ouray area on the way home.

    Idea 3: Go up to Mount Rushmore, head west to Jackson Hole, down to Zion and Grand Staircase Escalante, North Rim of the grand canyon and head home from there.

    1. How the fuck can you get two weeks off in a row?
    2. Where do you work?
    3. Are they hiring?

    Moab will be too hot to have fun. That's when we went and we lasted two days before GTFO and hauling ass to Colorado. The heat takes a toll on yourself and your rig.

    I would cruise around the trails that are open and do some fishing.

    I'm Actually taking off 2 weeks and 3 days. This plan would only work if I can not take off the rest of the year and roll some days into next year.

    Good to know about Moab. That's also a place I want to go with other people.

    I understand that. I didn't have the "time" at my last company so I know what you mean.
    Also I think I saw one of your buses on the back of a truck up here on 20 last week.

    Spend more time in the back CO country and camp, less traveling to those further areas.

    I highly recommend a white water rafting trip in the Arkansas River/Royal Gorge near Cañon City, CO. We used this outfitter, medium size raft company, family owned with excellent staff and I think they do guided fish trips as well.
    Google Maps Journey Quest - Royal Gorge Office
    559 County Rd 3A Unit #B, Cañon City, CO 81212 (719) 276-2227

    From our trip last month, one of the 3 weeks we spent in CO was is this area; beautiful area and lots of fishing options,
    Google Maps Eleven Mile Canyon Recreation Area
    Co Rd 96, Florissant, CO 80816
    Google Maps Eleven Mile State Park
    4229 Co Rd 92, Lake George, CO 80827
    (719) 748-3401
    This picture is at the top of Blue Mountain in that area, Pikes Peak is the background.

    I’m working on an itinerary for a 9 week+ trip:rolleyes:.

    I miss my old schedule before I went straight days. I could use 48 hours of vacation and be off for 15 days. Those were the days. Trying as hard as I can to get back on that schedule.

    160 hours, not days :facepalm:

    You gotta start making time to use those days. It's not healthy to go that long without an extended vacation.

    I try. Once my boss retires it will be much easier to get out of here
