Before I moved to Colorado.... Someone told me..."everyone has a gun in their car". I took it to heart.

5 killed in slide near Buena Vista.

Be careful out there. A lot of unstable mountains right now. I had a few close calls in my climbing days when stealthy boulders came rolling down a glacier.

Wrong place at the wrong time, whole family except the 13 yr old, sad. I was camped there not long ago, you could see where there had been previous rock falls.

For the other recently born-again bachelors in the room, here was today's moment of Zen.

The phone rings... it's my mom (so, imagine a thick Indian accent).


Mom: It's time you get married, don't you think?

Me: (Laughter)

Mom: (silence and then...) What are you laughing about?


p.s. My divorce was final on August 16th.

But you must marry a nice Indian girl so you don't have these problems again. [/mother]

You better be careful my friend. There's not a woman alive that can resist those M&M pants!

Damn, you beat me to it ROAD DAMAGE. But I might as well add that the cuddly Gunnison County Sheriff seemed to like your M&M pants and she already has handcuffs.

For the record... she was totally hitting on me.

Took my wife up that same trail to view the falls. I made her stand on the right hand side because I recognized the danger in the highly slab jointed nature of the white intrusive rock above the foot of the falls. Too sad, a whole family wiped out.

I predict the demise of your singleness inside of 6 months. Given your good looks and lack of children ( I assume) ....the womenz will seek you out like dung beetles on some steamy hotcakes.

By the way,


I hear the RNMP has some sweet single track opening up here in a few days depending on Congress's mood.
