OK guys, so far this is what I have found out about Gunnison facilities.

I made a few phone calls today. The first being to the Tall Texan. They are way off the beaten path to any dirt bike trails. Your looking at 20 - 60 miles of trailering your bikes. Real nice lady to speak to though.

I tried another place, the Tomichi Creek Trading Post; booked solid due to black powder and bow hunting season.

The next place and this sounds and looks like "the place" was the Three Rivers Resort http://www.3riversresort.com/. They have cabins available in September. They have trail access from the property and more trail access within 10-20 miles of the place. They also have a large place for all of the gather and hang out or have a group dinner (Bobzilla's World Famous Chili").

I was told to call back on Monday and speak with the reservation manager, which I will do for more details.

So please take a look at the web site and let me/us know what you think.

Mike

No RV spots or tent spots from what I can tell would be an issue, I would think.

I had talked to 3rivers months ago and to me it sounded like a go. They had all the facilities we needed and were up for the challenge.The location was right in between Gunnison and Crested Butte. The down sides...
1) Not much going on around them, restaurants etc..
2 )No camping facilities

I then thought at the time that that may not be an issue with fuel at $4 plus a gallon. Who wants to haul an RV or toy hauler when you could split a cabin for $100-200 for the whole trip depending on how many stay with you.Really not cost effective to camp, plus everyone would be together. They did say there was a state camp ground about 2 miles away which I didnt think was to bad.
Where ever we end up you can plan on trailering the bikes to the trail heads.

P.S.
Just reread the thread....I guess I just keep repeating myself. I guess I am waiting for someone to say" forget about 3rivers, it wont work".

How much additional time and money will it take to get your toy hauler up there Dale? then you have to pay to camp, dump ect..
It lookes like rooms could be had from $40-65 a night depending on how you go about it. Less if you dont mind being cozy....me I'm not the cozy type.....not with guys anyways

Not worried about time or money when it comes to this trip. As the force ride is only part of my trip. I'll be off for a few weeks and will be on walk about so to speak. Going to be heading to Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and possibly Washington in addition to Colorado.

But to answer your question directly to take my toy hauler would take me 14.5 hours drive time, and $173 worth of fuel. Averaging 55mph and 11.5 mpg.

Without toyhauler 11.5 hours drive time, and $117 worth of fuel, averaging 70mph and 17mpg.

Difference 3.1hours drive time, and $57 worth of fuel, one way. Being able to stop where ever I want and spend the night, and having all my stuff locked up inside out of sight.........priceless.
