I think parking won't be an issue especially so early Friday morning. Saturday may be a bit more busy but getting there before 10:00am should be fine. I take my cat up there often without issue. The snowmobile lot isn't plowed to the ground so the sleds can drive around. It will likely be slick, tight turn around and full of ice potholes. If your cat and trailer are difficult or your tires aren't awesome I recommend two different options to avoid issues in the snowmobile lot. First you can unload and put your cat on the snow, then turn around and park. Second also unload and put cat on snow and park in the rest area lot that is plowed better and easy to turn around in. Shouldn't be an issue but if one person struggles in the lot with truck, cat and trailer it could turn into a cluster fast. Also don't forget that a Colorado OHV sticker is required to run cats on Vail pass. You can usually purchase on site or thru Colorado parks and wildlife. And you also have to pay USFS $6. They have a station to pay the $6 at parking lot.

I ordered 25 stickers yesterday. they cost $2 each. normally i would just cover them in the spirit of the event but if you guys wouldnt mind reimbursing me i would appreciate it. should be extra if anyone wants more than one but i would like to have atleast one for each cat in attendance before handing out extras

Guys- Sorry to say I'm out. Broke my fibula near the ankle (right foot) on Sunday. Can't operate a cat, get my trailer hooked up, or even drive a truck. Bummer to miss out, but maybe it will turn into an annual event.

I thought about it alittle more and I think the cat ride is to much for a keg to handle . all the beer will be shaken up and undrinkable . I will be bringing a bunch of beer , grill and lots of hot dogs for everyone tho .

the stickers turned out great and they were cheaper than expected so dont worry about reimbursement. consider it my contribution to the event. lets make this the first of many colorado cat gatherings that we can look forward to each and every year.

Could we get a show of hands here? Who is coming to V.P. Friday? Is anyone starting out from Camp Hale? Any updates on who is actually going? So far I know of three Thiokols and a Tucker, maybe a Prinoth.

I'll be there Friday, without my cat. I am hoping I can get a ride in someone else's machine (or three).
Mountain Lion Cafe @ 6:30am, right?

I am planing on attending Friday if I can wing it. My first problem is I have to pick up my kids from school at 3:00 in Eagle, unless I take them out of school. I think a cat jamboree is good enough reason right?

I have two tuckers now, my 1642 ( which is in great shape ) and my recently acquired 1544 ( that I have been working on for the last two weeks to get ready, it wont be done but good enough to run )

My 2nd problem is, I think I can haul both of them on my 55 ton lowboy but am worried about trying to turn around and I have to drop the trailer and pull the neck off to unload, So I need roughly 100FT of parking space. The truck is 75 alone with the trailer attached.

I might just end up with one cat up there..... and I did book a hotel room in Dillon at the Hampton for Saturday night.

Put me down for a couple of stickers at least. I will reimburse for sure.

The keg of beer sounds awesome.........What is the Start time for Friday? And Saturday? 7:00?

Can't wait to see everybody and there awesome machines!!!!

I'll be there Friday at Vail Pass to hang out and take pix. My Trooper is temporarily out of commission. Willing to pitch-in helping to pay for munchies and stickers too. Let me know if I need to bring anything.

Good plan. Don't let the school get in the way of your kids education.
