Escape to New Mexico
Ever wanted to be a hero, a villain, or a wild West outlaw! Here's your chance at a fantasy adventure of a lifetime. Get your group of your best and wildest friends together for a unique fantasy adventure in the Mountains of Southern Colorado this Summer
Proposed itinerary for 5-day 4 night fantasy adventure. (Note trip can be adjusted to 4 days per client request.)
This is fantastic fantasy vacation like none other designed to promote adventure, camaraderie, and keep you guessing!
The Fantasy scenario!
You and 4 friends arrive in Denver, or Colorado Springs and meet for lunch at an outdoor café. One of your friends has some incredible news and they need your help and secrecy. One of your friends has amazingly stolen the Queen’s jewels in a slide of hand maneuver and is on the escape. However you are in hot pursuit. Your friend needs your help to get to the New Mexico border, where the precious jewels can be handed over to his accomplice.
Before your lunchtime discussion is over on what to do, you are chased out of the café by hired goons, that seek to take back the jewels and destroy all of you. Your team of five is on the run, literally. You run down the street and jump into a van that waits for you. Narrowly avoiding capture! The driver, now part of your team, takes you out of town and explains the scenario of your escape. She explains that in order to evade capture, your team must cross over a remote mountain range by trail and continue heading south once on the other side. You must take two days to cross in order to successfully evade your captors, before continuing South in vehicles towards the New Mexico border.
That evening, you are dropped off with a trail Guide, backpacks and supplies for two days. The guide helps you find your way and camp where your won’t be discovered.
Your team of six banditos continues the trek up over the ridge to the West. Best to spend the afternoon laying low and enjoying the mountain scenery, for tomorrow we are back on the escape.
Your team finishes the trail and arrives at a vehicle in the morning. Your driver informs you that the chase back on! The goons know you're in Southern Colorado headed for New Mexico and they're on the lookout to cut you off. The driver takes you to a secret high desert campsite to avoid capture. Here you may try out mountain bikes or even horses that may assist you in your final leg to New Mexico.
You jump in the Van and continue southward towards the border. A text from your allies tells you that the goons have secured every road into New Mexico and are waiting for you to cross the border. You must cross into New Mexico off-road. Either by foot or bike or horseback along the high desert sage. Or by water…
You and your group either make it, get captured, or get turned around by the elements. If you are able to across the New Mexico border, you can safely hand over the jewels to your New Mexican ally and rid yourself of the stress the jewels have caused.
Your driver will take you back to southern Colorado where amongst the wild horses and coyotes you will celebrate your last night. Bonfire, Music, Barbecue, etc.
You will enjoy a leisurely morning. Possibly a short hike, bike ride etc. Then the ride van back to Denver or Colorado Springs. On the way back, you will get to stop to bathe and freshen up at one of Southern Colorado's finest Hot Springs pools.
This is sure to be an epic adventure trip that the five of you will remember forever.
