Also, I'm not really interested in the autox or rally but am very interested in the drag. Also, when we drove to Cabo San Lucas a cple summers ago, our first stop was about 1500 miles from Tijuana and I made it there n like 15.5 or 16.5 hours, so I know we should b able 2 cover this trip faster than 23.... hours. How I like 2 drive on road trips is, JUST ROLL, and only stop 4 gas and that's when we get food and watever else we need. Pretty Xtreme lol.

We bring 4 full size spares, but we call them TRACK TIRES

You guys are going to enjoy the section from Grand Junction Colorado to Denver.

So I take it it's a nice scenic stretch? Any recommendations on where to grab some lunch or dinner?

Very nice scenic stretch. Especially though Glenwood canyon:

Don't really have any recommendations for places to eat. Never really stopped anywhere that didn't have a drive through. I plan on spending a lot of time up there this summer.

If anyone takes the same route back home and has some extra time to spare, when you get back into Glenwood Canyon, stop at the Hanging Lake turnoff and hike up to the lake. (more like a large pond) Great stuff. (sorry for the thread jack)

Thanks blackb15... That is super nice! Looks like I'm going to have to pick up a nice camera for this trip.

Depends on the time of year, but sometimes they patrol that canyon pretty hard. I've been fortunate enough to never have a problem through there. Last time on my way back from Denver we got stuck in the canyon for a couple hours while the road was closed. They were in the process of moving a boulder the size of a volkswagen off the road.
