So when is the official date? I'll be in to do this trip but I need to know when to come.

Its usually in early October.  They keep the motel open an extra week just to accomodate this gathering.

If the Eagle Motel fills up, there are other motels in the area. So don't dismiss the trip if you can't get a room there. Also, October is probably not a good month to hit some trails, depending on September's snow fall.

Praf,

At least he realizes it...:)

There are times in life when "...discretion is the better part of valor..."  I used to own a BUILT scout(Isuzu 3.9L NPR Turbo Diesel mated to a NV4500 thru a Dana 300) and I DO have a well done XJ with OxTrax lockers front & rear and a 4-1 Atlas T-case, either will/would climb anything short to true vertical,  and there are places & times I'd never think of taking either of them

If the weather is good, a cruise on the Peak to Peak scenic byway would be an enjoyable drive. It takes you from Central City to Estes Park. It's a gourgeous drive.

Hey Guys the Eagle Motel trip is set for October 13th, we will meet at Rambler Ranch at 8am and leave for the Eagle Motel at 10am. Please email me your contact info at nash1954@aol.com if you are planning to join us. I do not have all the activities planned yet but we always have a good time. There will be at least 30 Eagle's at the motel on Saturday night. We only do this every other year, I hope to see lots of Eagle Nesters this year!

There is plenty of motels/hotels within walking distance of the eagle motel. After school starts you can pick up a room just about anywhere near there...and in most cases at a lower rate than during tourist season I grew up just a few miles from there and still live only 20 min. away. If anyone has any questions about other "nesting" sights I can answer any questions ya might have.

Would anyone mind if I slept outside in my Eagle in the parking lot?   If nothing else, I would be there as "Security" , kind of like watching over the "Nest"(when not sleeping of course).

We came pretty close this week to not having an eagle motel...the Waldo canyon fire wiped out 18,000+ acres, 346 homes and claimed 2 lives in colorado springs, and darn near took out manitou springs....over 32,000 evacuees in the area...the whole area is pretty unrecognizable :'( ....it still burning albeit not as bad...Atleast the beloved Eagle motel will still be there for us this october.
