July of 2009, the Military stationed us back home in CO. Coming from TX we had a Jetta TDI for a commuter car. But knowing that CO winters can be nasty, we wanted something 4WD. The search began. I wanted something diesel, with 7 passenger capability. Those are hard to come by in the US...
I am doing well. Starting to get insanely busy with the shipments coming up.
Sorry to hear you're leaving CO so soon. Godspeed in Georgia and the rest of your career. I am sure we'll keep in touch here off and on?
You bet. Both worth the trip. Snow on both trails are the issue now, but high water is also an issue with spring runoff on Halfmoon.
It'd be a long day, but you could run Mosquito first thing, then drop into Leadville and hit the Halfmoons. I'd do North Halfmoon first. South halfmoon may...

So sorry I hadn't posted this earlier. I am planning to be there and have registered.
Camping is at Ron's campground and free to military members. The bad news is that up until now we had the whole place reserved, but as of May 1st, Ron asked that we open...
The Air Force is moving us to Germany this summer and while I'd love to keep it, the price of fuel over there could put a damper on the traveling we expect to do. So we're selling and will buy a couple diesel sedans once we get there.
We posted at the same time.
Yeah, I've done South. There is one creek crossing that was knarly at the time, but it changes so much. I thought I saw a thread on CO4x4 of someone running it last fall. South HM starts with a fairly deep creek crossing and from what I hear, is hard to find...
The only time I have been there, the gate was closed to vehicle traffic, but you can get there on foot.
Just to clarify, this is North Half Moon. South Half Moon is just as fun, but no cool mine structure at the end.
I am gaining interest in our 2006 Land Rover LR3 HSE V8. We are considering selling it in the next couple months.

We were on the trail by 10am and headed back thru Nederland around 4:30. We would have been hard to miss LOL!
We also saw a Cow Moose 5 miles North of Nederland. Never seen one that close to civilization - in CO anyway.
Ralph - great video! Been a few years since I've hit that trail! Has changed some. That last obstacle at 11:29 used to be pretty tough. I had heard it was smoothed out :(. That's a huge group! Looking for snow? try Mt. Baldy...
This is my cousin breaking trail chained up on 35's...
