Jan 13, 2010 - Western National Stockshow

Wednesday, Jan 13th Today Wes & Marsha, Mark & Sandi, Linda & I and Nick are going to drive into Denver and go to the Western National Stockshow. This annual event lasts for 16 days every January and it is BIG DEAL to the many ranchers, breeders and competitors of anything that has to do with horses, cattle, goats, sheep, poultry, rabbits, llamas or any other species. In addition to this, there is a waiting list of vendors, of everything from BBQ & Tacos to saddles, feed and home furnishings, to set up their booth to peddle their wares. The...

Dec 15, 2009 - Museums, Parks And Other Lure Places In Denver City

Denver is amazing city. I could leave it at that but let me elaborate. The air is clean and beautiful which there are so many things to do and in such a close proximity. Denver is the capital city of Colorado which the largest city in the United States. I am first time visit in this city. The ballparks and arenas are very near each other, in the downtown area. There must be a million microbreweries with great beer and food which that reason you can get colors for like a buck or 2 all over town. Everything is geared toward sports, outdoor,...

Oct 29, 2009 - Winter in the Higher Elevations

We are in the midst of the first mega storm to hit Colorado. Snowfall varies from 10 inches to 40 inches at higher elevations. Skiers are in heaven. We are holed up in Tortuga at Prospect RV Park with about 50 other RVs. We had to disconnect water and empty our lines so nothing would freeze and burst. Looks like we will be able to move further south by Saturday. Since we did not want to drive we took a bus trip to Black Hawk and Central City, about an hour up into the mountains. These two cities were huge mining towns in the gold rush of...

Oct 28, 2009 - Denver Snow

Most of Colorado is under a winter storm warning. Pictures are from the overnight snow. Predictions are for snow the remainder of the day and into tomorrow. Tortuga will sit this one out. Yesterday we spent the day in Denver and spent a bit of time at the Denver Art Museum(DAM). The structure is meant to depict the mountains with many peaks and an irregular roof line. (We took the bus into town and in our haste to catch the correct bus, I forgot the camera, hence, no pictures of the city.) We also wandered the 16th Ave Mall before catching...

Where is Tortuga?

Oct 25, 2009 - Denver

We are in the MileHigh City. Getting here was an experience of much that Mother Nature has to offer. We started out in rain, which endured the entire day. After drycamping at a Flying J near Des Moines we continued on 80 in rain and wind. Trans Nebraska was another experience of winds, that slowed us down. The sleet and the tad of slipping on the highway prompted us to find a campgrounds with electricity. Heat was welcome. When we returned to the interstate there was evidence that they had plowed the highway and the highway was dry. The sky...

Oct 15, 2009 - Extreme Candy Coasters

Thursday morning we arrived at the Comcast center to watch the Extreme Candy Coasters Challenge. We followed the signs down the hall, and noted that the West 1 studio had it’s red light flashing indicating active filming. Keegan Gerhard, the show’s host, was introducing the challenge. It was funny to see that there were always multiple takes on things. Hershey’s was the sponsor of this challenge, and so the Hershey candies were introduced, and Chef Gerhard told the teams that they needed to incorporate 4 candies into their design. The chefs...

Oct 13, 2009 - Driving to Denver

Tuesday morning we packed up the car to leave on the last big leg of my Great Adventure. Mark and Lauren were crying as they hugged each other goodbye in the driveway. Of course, I couldn’t keep from crying myself—it was so sweet to see. We headed down I-35 and there was a winter fog hanging just above the road. I smiled as we passed 2 Fleet Farm stores—I love that store and want one in Show Low!! Fall was really happening in Minnesota and mist rose off some of the lakes we passed in eerie fingers. Lauren slept most of the way through...

Sep 26, 2009 - Russ and Kathy's last moments in Denver

After dropping us off at the airport R&K drove over to Red Rocks to check out the music scene. Since there was no concert Friday night they had a chance to 'run the stairs' and get in some really good exercise - they had that chance but didn't take it. Instead they sat around and watched others run the stairs and just enjoyed the alone time with some beer, cheese and crackers. Saturday morning they decided to tour the city and walked the length of 16th street, pausing as is their custom, to partake in a local brew. I put all of their photos...

Desert Storm 2009

Sep 26, 2009 - Day 13 - Rome to London to Superior

Our flight out of Rome was on-time (8:15 a.m.), headed to London for a five hour layover and then on to Denver. We took off from London at 3:15 p.m. and arrived in Denver at 6:45 p.m. If it weren't for that darn time change, this would be a reasonable flight time. After 9 1/2 hours of reading and watching some bad movies, I'm happy to report we made it home safely. It was a great trip. We both know we are blessed to have had the opportunity to go on it and to have our friends and family checking in on us every now and then. Now that we've...

Sep 25, 2009 - Back to Denver

This was Mark and Kathy's last day of the trip and we had a couple of stops to make before heading to the airport. The first was to the US Olympic training center in Colorado springs. This 37 acre facility is on the site of a former military base and still has many of the old barracks that are used for housing star athletes 'in residency'. The facility specializes in swimming, weightlifting, wrestling, volleyball, trampoling, shooting, gymnastics and other summer sports. Athletes that are considered in the top 10% of their field can be...

Desert Storm 2009

Sep 14, 2009 - Denver, CO; The Mile High City!

We overnighted in Cheyenne, WY after a day of driving in high winds and continued on to Denver mid-morning Monday. First on our agenda is Transwest Trucking in Dacono to repair/replace the leaking coolant valve. These are always anxious stops when you have no prior experience with the facility but local friends, Bill and Carol, recommended. Transwest was quick and efficient. First, they pressure-tested the cooling system to make sure there were no other leaks (there weren’t), sent a runner over to Cummins for the valve, and had it replaced...

Aug 19, 2009 - Denver

Wednesday, August 19: David and Mary Anne took us on a tour of downtown Denver. We went via the rapid transit metro line from their home into downtown. The rapid transit is quiet, clean and fast. We were downtown in no time. The 16th street mall is for pedestrians and free buses. We walked the mall and then headed to the art museum. Denver has a wonderful art museum and we viewed native American art, modern art etc. On the way into town, Don had spotted the ‘original Denver steakhouse’ that we’d read about. So we stopped there on our way...
