I made my first trip to Colorado this fall for a late September archery hunt in unit 25 ... and plan on returning next fall. My father is US Army retired / disabled and has decided he would like to accompany me this next fall. His disability is from Vietnam ... bullet through the neck severing 3 vertebrae. He is as able bodied as most late 50 year old men and has full use of all of his limbs with very limited muscle strength. He has applied for and recieved a crossbow permit from the state of CO. I am planning on applying for units 23, 24 and 33 and heading out in mid September for a two week hunt. Here is where things get more interesting ... he is not crazy about the idea of sleeping in a tent for 10-14 days and wants me to take out my 5th wheel camper. Unit is 27 feet long ... does anyone have any personal experiance with the access roads leading into the White River National Forest from the Meeker area? We will have atv's with us so it is not necessary to really get back into the back country to camp ... but within 10 miles or so would be nice. I think if you take route 8 out of Meeker .... there is a road that turns south and goes into the Forest ... is this road in good enough shape to pull a camper?
By the way ... looks to be a great forum you have here and I would like to thank you in advance for any information you might have.
