Ramah, CO 80832
Ramah is approximately 100 miles from the host hotel and takes a little under 2 hours to arrive.
The Hunt Test will be at this same location on Sunday, September 29th. We've arranged for parking across the road, a short walk to the draw area. Mishka's oversized garage will be used for the draw. We'll have tables and chairs set up for breakfast and lunch. There are rabbits but it's not like the Beagle grounds many are used to. This is open range with knee high growth. There are cottontails. Llamas, alpacas, goats and a horse are penned in at the front part of the property.
From the Crowne Plaza, take I-70 East 75 miles to US-24 and turn right, drive 27 miles towards the town of Ramah. Turn left on Ramah Highway and go to the intersection of Ramah Highway and Ramah Road. Mishka’s house, with a big green roof, is at the stop sign on the left. Fox and Hare Farm is private property owned by Timberline Basset Hound Club member Mishka Kilgore.

Restaurants, Hotels, RV Park
There are chain hotels in Colorado Springs and Limon. Calhan and Simla are closer to the test grounds and also have a couple of hotels. A few Timberline club members stayed at the Western Lodge in Simla and the consensus was that while it was inexpensive and dog friendly it was also quite "colorful". More research is being done regarding the hotel in Calhan - look for updates! There will be RV parking at the test grounds for self contained RVs.
