Drive 4 Corners is excited to put together a loose agenda event in 2022, with this years gathering taking place in Durango, CO during the last weekend in August. Hosting the event in Durango provides large enough meeting spaces for the social side of the event, while still being close to the roads that encompass the spirit of D4C.
Descending into Durango on Friday, we will do our best to provide group led caravans from Denver, CO Springs, AZ, NM and Texas. While we don’t have a central hotel this year, we have outlined a few options for lodging that are nearby each other where you are likely to connect with others attending the event. Of course, you are welcome to stay wherever you like and can re-connect with the larger group for any combination of activities. Friday evening, we will gather at TBD, around 5pm, and then disperse to get food. Anticipating that many restaurants can’t accommodate us all at the same time, we have outlined a few restaurant suggestions (see below).
Saturday morning, we will meet at TBD around 8:30am for conversation and a group photo. From there we will have two group led drives, with the first departing around 9:15am headed East for Feemon’s General Store in Creed, CO. The second will leave around 10:00am heading up highway US-550 to Handlebars restaurant in Silverton, CO. Some may wish to explore Durango, head south to Ute Mountain Casino, head out on their own unique adventure such as Mesa Verde. As a larger group, we will reconvene at the La Plata Fairgrounds (2500 Main Ave, Durango, CO 81301) around TBD for an Ice Cream social with other event participants.
While Sunday is always bittersweet with some participants departing towards home early, we will have a send meet off with Bagels and Coffee for those that wish to spend more time socializing and swapping stories. We plan to meet at Durango Joes (331 S Camino Del Rio, Durango, CO 81303), but realize parking may be limited.
For the event, we will not have an entry fee this year. Hotel accommodations, food, etc are covered by participants. Trying to secure meeting spaces, centralized accommodations and food has proven to still be a challenge in smaller mountain towns. For this reason, the meeting locations do not have prescheduled group reservations.
