Colorado Rocky Mountain Jeep Safari
July 17th-25th 2021
Ride is complete here are the Photos
This is a one week Jeep overland style adventure around the best areas of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
This safari is designed for couples or families to enjoy
Each evening the adventure will end in a comfortable cabin or motel.
Ouray Jeep Jamboree
This is not tough jeeping but rather backroad exploring of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. There are route options built into this adventure so riders can choose the adventure lever that fits them best..
Invite your friends or just come along and meet new folks.
Each signup is for a couple or family in one Jeep or similar 4x4. The signup includes one private cabin or hotel room with two beds. This 7 day ride is $1,975. The fee covers your lodging for the 8 nights and includes your ride guide booklet, a custom Garmin GPS Map on a micro SD card and printed ride maps. And a lot of fun.
Sorry the ride is full, but I often get cancellations, so add your name to the Waiting list and you can still possible join.
After your signup riders will receive an email from me with further ride information and instructions.
Note: Riders must make full payment by June 5th, 2021
Riders will receive ride packets in the mail one week before the ride.
Do not sign up for this ride unless you are serious about coming. I take your signup very seriously and start planning for you the minute you sign up. If you need to cancel up to one month prior to the ride start date I will give you a full refund but I will keep $100 to cover the planning work. Sorry but I make non refundable commitments myself so it gets hard for me. "I hate this world of non refundable deals myself." If you need to cancel within one month of the ride I cannot give a refund unless I can find a replacement rider. In the case of finding a replacement rider, I will gladly give you the full refund minus the $100 to cover the planning work. In the event of ride cancellation, you will be given a full refund.
View the ride maps below
OK since many of you like to study more detail about the ride, below are the ride maps.
I put these ride maps on the web page because I know a few of you love looking at the ride detail and dreaming about the ride. At first glance these maps do not look so impressive, but they are way cool. If you start zooming in, you can see the ride in incredible detail. I have spent a ton of hours sorting through the details of the ride for each day, so for those of you that enjoy this sort of thing, well enjoy!

Rent a Jeep for this adventure?
Yes you can but you are on your own to make arrangements
I checked with Avis and I found this:
I see there are other companies that rent Jeeps, But make them commit to a Jeep and not a similar vehicle
How does the ride navigation work?
This is a self-led GPS ride; all riding is on your own. You are responsible for your own riding. You will be given a GPS map file and instructions on how to use your Garmin GPS unit. People will hook up in small groups of less than 6 riders and tend to ride together. You are not encouraged to ride alone. You are responsible for your own riding and yourself.

Are you right for this ride?
When something goes wrong on a ride, would your riding friends say that you are more likely to need help or more likely to give help? You should be in the more likely to offer help camp. This ride is filled with riders that are more likely to give help, so most of the time the riders never need help. Additionally there is all the normal stuff, come prepared to maintain your bike, fix your bike on the trail, repair flat tires, deal with bad weather and rain and make a joke or two.
How do I make the GPS stuff so easy?
I develop very high quality ride maps custom for our ride. They come from much of what I and others have ridden. I take the best from all my rides and make new ones.
