    I'd rather drive a 40ft gooseneck in a 3500 dually than a 20ft tag behind an SUV. Having done both, the big gooseneck is waaaaaay easier to drive.

    However, I'm with you when talking campers specifically, any trailer limits where you can go, but the bigger the trailer, the more limiting it is.

    I've never driven something like that so I'll take your word that it is easier to drive. But I don't have to worry if I turn off the highway, I know that I can make it down any old street that doesn't have a "no outlet" sign. Can't say the same for a monster rig.

    No, I drive a lifted Tundra with a truck camper in the bed, while wearing a flatbrim.

    The van market is for flatbrim wearing bro brahs who want to stay on paved roads, like simple.

    If unpaved parking lots count, I'm the king of the off-road vanlife .

    I heard the guy is looking for a 25 year old 2500 or 3500 pick up to get with the program

    I think he enjoys working on Van's and trucks in auto zone and Walmart parking lots

    My wife was headed back from Denver and saw the traffic so took Squaw pass and avoided the shitshow. Ended up being a pretty damn good move apparently.

    Holy shit, we saw remnants of hail on 285 on Friday, but was offline all weekend at the Sand Dunes so had no idea. Left Boulder at 3:45, sounds like we might have dodged a bullet!

    driving out of DIA around 11 AM on Thursday. Heading for Wolf Creek. What is the best route? Got stuck in the 70 construction in March. Is this avoidable? Rather drive 285 but open to 25 if it will be faster out of the city.

    I-225 to I-25N to Hampden (Hwy 285). I'd check Google Maps and Waze to see on the morning of to see if this option is required...

    You could do 225 to 25 to 285 in town if you really wanted to avoid any time on 70. Although in the middle of the day you're probably better off just taking 70 to 470 to 285.
    go upside down.

    I'd go ahead and just switch your flight to ABQ

    285 route is prettier but is more weather prone you have 190 miles of mostly 2 lane road.

    E470->I25->US160 sounds much more straightforward driving and avoids traversing Denver... I mean unless there is a blizzard hitting CS/Pueblo.

    Yea do ABQ, or COS, or SAF, if it doesn't add an airport connection. Cuts an hour off your drive. But not worth adding a connection. That time of year there might be UA or AA direct flights to DRO from big places like ORD, DFW, LAX, PHX and HOU... but flying to Durango can be pricey. You can fly from DEN. Don't fly inside CO. One little storm over CO and your lil bitty regional turbo prop is delayed or cancelled.

    Have you driven I-25 to/from CoSpgs lately? It's a total crapshoot whether you're going to end up in a clusterfuck on par with other I-70/I-25 shitshows.

    No I haven't driven that lately I try to avoid driving east of Idaho Springs unless there is an airport involved.
    Good to know
