This will be an “off the cuff” event. These are the suggested hotels but meals will be dependent on the COVID situation and of course your level of comfort and risk. Parking lot shenanigans the same. There are no group hotel reservations - call or go online to reserve as an individual unique person. biggrin.gif
Sep 10 Montrose, CO, Red Arrow Inn & Suites, 1702 E Main St, Montrose, CO 81401, 970-249-9641, drive to Durango on Fri.
Sep 11-13 Durango, CO, Caboose Motel, 3363 Main Ave, Durango, CO 81301, 970-946-2518 ask for Maureen (if she doesn't answer, leave a message for Porsche 914 group and she'll call back), drive Sat TBD. BBQ at Moorman’s Sat. (We ❤️ Moormans)
This is the https://www.customink.com/g/dsa0-00ca-9ta0. It’s an order and pay and Custom Ink ships so even if you can’t attend, feel free to order a shirt.
This is, above all, an opportunity to connect with friends and deal crud about our cars, as always. cheer.gif drunk.gif smile.gif We will be wearing masks in situations we can’t socially distance.

I hope to join in, too. But VERY doubtful my 914 will be ready for the party.

Anybody who wants to see it (whatever state it is in then), or gets bored and wants to do some rebuilding, will be welcome!

Of course Jim. I'll leave a day early and stay the night in Mesquite, NV then drive the remainder the next morning. Probably meet up with @http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=481 for that 2nd leg.

This looks very tempting as we've wanted to escape the AZ heat for a while and were thinking of the Durango area.

Probably not in a 914- when you hit 70 you want AC! But it will be in a Porsche of some kind... The roads around there are to die for!

On the way back from Telluride I stopped at all the Outlooks I usually fly past and didn't get home til midnight. So this trip I'm open to an overnight someplace, specially since I expect to be in the little 914. The Partsfinder isn't up for anymore trips.

Sort of. Still overheating. Pretty sure the engine cooling passages are clogged from the coolant evaporating and crystallizing. I'm optimistic I can drop the motor and clean it out / replace things way before Sept.

No Pathy parts... yet laugh.gif . Clutch is starting to go. I've got nicer flips that need smaller fixes.

Now that I think about it, the cargo tie downs have been very useful idea.gif

I haven't asked the hotel in Montrose about this yet.

If my wife comes, we'll be towing behind the Sprinter. There is no way in the world that my wife will drive the Sprinter (or anything else) on 550. So I'm going to need to leave Sprinter in Montrose and come back for it.

Anyone else have this challenge and has made arrangements for your tow vehicle?

When I was a kid my dad drove our old converted airstream bus over 550. One of the most memorable trips we ever had. Coming out of Durango, bus started vapor locking on the way to the top due to the mechanical fuel pump bring on the engine and the tank being some ~40ft behind that (and we think 914s have it bad) My dad winds up pulling a 300 or so point U-turn on that skinny ass road but in order to do so a 12 year old me is hunched over the open engine bay spraying WD-40 into the carb of the 454 to keep the engine running. Pretty sure my mothers heart was stopped the entire time, she doesnt do well with cliffs.
Anyways, back to Durango, dad installed a secondary electric pump on the tank end and a few hours later we were back on the pass (last time my mother allowed us to go that way)

Seriously great memories!!

We did Red Mountain Pass with my then 16 year old son driving our van and towing our tent trailer - on a Bike the Rockies day with bicyclists who thought it was just fine to ride 3 abreast. My wife is NOT a fan (although Mike really did just fine).

6550' ASL. And yes, you will need to adjust those carbs. A few times. beerchug.gif

The other option is to go through Telluride and Dolores. The makes the trip from Rigdway to Durango a 4 hour trip, instead of 2 hours on 550.

Yep - like Bob said. It is 6600 feet ASL in Durango but the mountain passes are closer to 11,000 feet. I have a 2143cc/4 carbed car that does fine over the passes (wide band AFR tuned at 6600 feet) - but you do lose HP at altitude. The worst case is you run rich (washing down the cylinders) which is better than running too lean I think. My 2.7L/6 fuel injected 914 doesn't blink at altitude.

Jeff can probably guide you better. @http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=2744

I drove my carbed car on several mountain rallies and while yes it was a little rich I had no problems keeping up. There were a few time where I had to keep the rpms high and I did adjust the idle speed once or twice but the car was totally driveable and did not leave me stranded. Go for it.

Montrose looked like a good place to get some critical mail as we worked our way across Colorado. Nice place, but too warm at this time of year. I've seen all of Montrose that I need to see for a long time!

Thanks Brant!

It had a pop-off valve installed and it blew it to pieces and put a hole in the air filter.

I cannot get a room in Durango.
I am planning on attending and was able to get a reservation at the Red Arrow Inn & Suites in Montrose.
Durango Downtown Inn is booked all the way into December. The gal on the phone said the dorms are closed so the college students are renting motel rooms. Sounds insane for the college students. Thats all I know. I could maybe tent it.

Any word on t-shirts yet? Is the drive from montrose to Durango the only long drive. Are there going to be day trips in Durango?

It’s close! And yes there will be a Saturday drive. Figuring out options.

Keith and I are staying at the Casa Blanca casino/motel in Mesquite, NV Wednesday nite then meeting with John Thursday morning before driving up to Montrose. The drive on Friday from Montrose to El Dorado is via the Million Dollar Hi Way. I hope you don't miss out on that trip. The view is stunning to say the least. beerchug.gif

That would be great if Rick could make it and I have asked. The only possibility that I can see would work would be to clone him so he could work on his house and get his car ready also. Maybe?

So I actually double booked (found a slightly better rate) and then never canceled my original reservation so at the moment I have 2 rooms reserved at the Durango. It was on my to-do list to call and cancel one of them tomorrow. If anyone is still looking for a room perhaps we can coordinate getting that 2nd reservation transferred.

I will hold off on canceling for now given there seems to be a room shortage.

Well....

sounds like the Durango Downtown Inn may be about to sheeplove.gif sheeplove.gif sheeplove.gif us dry.

Called this morning to see if I could transfer a reservation to another member and was told that they couldn't because not only can new reservations not be made but all existing reservations are going to be invalidated for dorm use during that time.

Hoping the girl I talked to was mistaken, but i guess better to find this out now than after driving 400 miles into the mountains of Colorado in a 50 year old car.

@http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=3920 may want to call and verify this.

Girl I talked to recommended the Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn which looks nice but is going up in price and looks like there are a lot of other options as well. Let me know what the new plan is and i will re-book.


EDIT: Just made backup reservations at the Hampton Inn, just in case until we know what is going on.

Great choice (The Hampton) but not close to downtown. The owner is Porsche guy - has a GT3 Cup Car and used to campaign in the GT4 Clubsport series (came in 2nd in the Western region). Eric Shea sees him at Miller Motorsports track (or whatever it is called now) where he is an instructor.

There is a trolley stop right at The Hampton for a ride into town.

Hi, everyone. I am a volunteer/part time professor at Fort Lewis College. Officially, dorms will be open in the fall. I don't know if the college has talked with hotel owners as a backup plan, or if parents are booking rooms on their own. In any case, most students live off campus anyway.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the update. These are strange times indeed.

New hotel info on Post #1 and here is the https://www.customink.com/g/dsa0-00ca-9ta0!

New motel is Caboose Motel, 3363 Main Ave, Durango, CO 81301, 970-946-2518 ask for Maureen (if she doesn't answer, leave a message for Porsche 914 group and she'll call back). But PLEASE stay wherever you are comfortable. The COVID is a wily beast throwing wrenches in our plans.

Mike and I just stayed in Buena Vista for a long weekend. There are a lot of mask rules (rightly so), restaurants had long lines, some were still closed, and I DO NOT want me, Mike, or any of you to catch the Rona, so we're playing stuff by ear. Drives, no problemo. Meals, TBD still, likely to be a "do what you want" situation so we're not all involved in a sneezing on each other and everyone's pizza catastrophe. (insert sneeze emoji) drooley.gif Parking lot shenanigans, a 6'+ definite.

FLC will lease rooms in the Durango Downtown Inn to accommodate more requests for single dorm rooms. In an email after the meeting, Love said local and corporate representatives helped the school find a solution with a room shortage spurred by the virus.

Yes - it appears that Fort Lewis is following the model adopted by most universities of 1 student per dorm room. That creates the need for more housing needs.
