Week of Camping and biking/hiking in Crested Butte. Such an amazing place.

Crested Butte stinks, tell your friends not to go! ;)

Im headed to Colorado to rescue my van this weekend, if I wasn’t pulling it home on a trailer I would detour back to Crested Butte. One of my favorite places to go.

OK I’m pretty sure there’s a forum rule you can’t show up with a name like 2.8 RSR and not show pictures if you have one. Just saying…

LOL, not everyone gets that reference....

Back before Porsche prices went crazy in the late 90's I had a few 911's while working at The Racer's Group and S-Car-Go Racing. My favorite was a '74 with a twin plug 2.8 motor, Weber carbs, wide RSR flares and 15"x11" & 9" reproduction Fuchs filling them. It was a blast and bought off eBay for a ridiculous now price of $13k. Sold it after turning it into a track day car at a NASA/PCA event a year later.

I have pictures in a shoebox somewhere, bringing them out makes me sad...... 😭

Sigh. I know the feeling. I sold a '63 Nova SS Convertible for $3500 to go to Europe once. And later a frame-off restored '73 2002 for $12K. Probably more than $50K worth of cars these days. I also didn't buy Bitcoin when I started following it...at $28. Doh!

14 hours one way empty, a lot longer coming home. 2020 is the worst!!!!!!!

My wife and kid got a ride back to town via park ranger. Two guys showed up in wrecker, no room for me???? I walked 4.7 miles back to ranger station where I was stopped for hitch hiking, he took pity on me and gave me a ride to our condo. THANK YOU PARK SERVICE ! Even walking back I still beat the wrecker by an hour.
