Talking Road Trip to Carhenge!

I'm thinking its time for a Road Trip!
To Carhenge... Alliance Nebraska



Were all talking about a G2G so how about a G2G/Road Trip/Photo Shoot... to Carhenge! It's free and open 24/7 (donations accepted).
Its about a 4 and a half hour drive (at the speed limit) from Denver, so we could make it out and back in a day.
I'm thinking of the last weekend or so in July, 22nd or 23rd or maybe the 29th or 30th.
Maybe we can get a focus line-up photo with Carhenge as the backdrop, that would be pretty cool.
Anyone interested?
Which day would work best for those interested?

We got 6 people so far from "The Jet" going.
The 22nd of July is the most popular date so far.

If we leave around 9:00am or so we should get to Carhenge around noonish, in time for lunch and some photos before the ride home.

Looks like Saturday July 22nd.
We could meet up at Bandimere Speedway (470 & Morrison Rd.) or at the Conoco on Heritage Road in Golden across the street (6th ave) from the court house.
There is a carwash next to the Conoco in Golden.
Any preferences?

It was a long hot drive but we made it there and back.

Here are some photos:









It was a long 537miles 'round trip!
Anyway here are a few more photos... There wasn't a good place to get the cars in the forground and Carhenge in the background for a photo shoot. The parking area is surrounded by trees.
