Aston Martin Owners Club – Road Trip to Colorado June 30, 2019

Aston Martin Owners Club – Road Trip to Colorado
The Red River Chapter of the AMOC has organized a 5-day, ~770 mile road trip event through the Colorado Rockies, and all AMOC members are invited to join! We meet in Colorado Springs on June 30th, and from there we make our way up to Estes Park where we will be staying at the historic Stanley Hotel over 4th of July. This event is entirely free – you just pay whatever it costs for hotels, gas, and food. There is a cap of 50 people and there are currently 42 signed up coming from California, Texas, and Colorado, so space is limited and hotel rooms are running low. The full, detailed itinerary is attached along with detailed information about the hotels and how to make your reservations.

If you wish to join us on this epic journey please make your hotel reservations ASAP and then contact Brian Greenstone at brian@amoctexas.orgbrian@amoctexas.org so that you will be added to the official event Evite and receive any updates and information. Optionally, you can RSVP directly on the Evite here: http://evite.me/MqTxWqWfpz http://evite.me/MqTxWqWfpz


COLORADO 2019 ITINERARY

This AMOC Members-only road trip starts in Colorado Springs on Monday, July 1st. Depending on how far you’re driving to get there you may have to leave Saturday or Sunday. From Colorado Springs to Estes Park, the road trip will involve ~770 miles / 15 hours of driving spread out over 4 days. It is imperative that you RSVP on the event event Evite since all communications and updates will be done there.

Our route takes us all over the central Rockies, so the scenery should be quite spectacular! We will be making stops in Crested Butte, Aspen / Snowmass, and Estes Park. Every day has a hiking / sightseeing option. 3 of the 4 hikes are morning hikes, so you can always skip that, sleep in, and meet up with us for the drive later, but these hikes are going to be well worth the effort, and are fairly easy and short.

WEATHER:

Expect daytime highs to be 72-77º with nighttime lows of 39-46º. We will be at 6000-9000’ elevation most of the time, so those coming in from sea level should be careful the first few days. It takes a day per 1000’ of elevation change to acclimate.

CLOTHING:

You do not need to bring anything fancy. Just comfortable driving clothes, hiking clothes & shoes, and whatever you’re comfortable in for dinner. Temperatures will go from cold to warm, so take that into account.

LODGING:

The full details on lodging are in the separate Lodging document, but here’s the summary:

You will need to make your own reservations. You should make your reservations ASAP because we are *not* getting room blocks held for us – just discounted rates. Being 4th of July these rooms will book up sooner rather than later, so you should do this immediately while there is still availability! Here are the four places you need to make reservations:
