Turbo has put a lot of time and effort into these rides so please thank him by enjoying some of them. On the Colorado run the ladies are flying into Colorado and shuttling to the hotel to save seat time. There are a few of us that are sharing rooms to keep the cost down. So, let us know if we might be able to assist in pairing, at this time we have one open queen side bed. It makes for a very afordable 2 week vacation!!
