You've got a Benelli Tomato? Good sauce!

It's richer than I like-- too much fork oil.

Thank you.

I really don't know what that guy's problem is with my choosing to move back to CO-- it's the second thread of mine he has stained with his crap.

Somebody else's project, I guess.

Thanks, man-- we'll see how it works out.

I spent 3 months in Beaumont/Liberty in '05, and seeing mountains for the first time afterwards was a religious experience.

Welcome back! Sounds like a good reason to have a Oscars beer night and meet the local inmates.

It does indeed, but then any reason is a good reason to gather at the pub.

Thanks, BTW.

4 years of Wyoming has been enough for me. Next week I'm off to Texas. I will miss some things, but not the cold or the WIND or the cold wind or the wind. Living in relative isolation sounds good until you want to do things with like minded people and there aren't any. I hope you enjoy Colorado, it's a nice place.

It would be harder to leave after 18 years, but you are still pretty close.

welcome back.

I've been here 14 yrs and still think of myself as a recent transplant.
Jeanne's a Denver native and I'm pretty happy this is where we ended up - though I wouldn't mind having a 2nd (cheap) residence in a thinly populated area in WY or NM to spend some of our down time.

Give me a bit to get all this SHIT moved from Wyo. Man, I had no idea I owned so much crap. Goodwill in Longmont isn't going to know what hit them.

Yeah, I'd love a meet-&-greet-- too long in the Empty Quarter.

Tyler, the wind is one of the main factors for my move: it started out as a challenge, and then just devolved into a plain fight and a nine month-long psychic drain.

Blake, I have your old RS and an extended riding season in which to use it. Once the boxes subside, that's what I plan to do.

cool...though it was Charlie's a lot longer than it was mine - I just went to St. Louis to get it and ride it back thru a snow storm and commute on it for a few weeks before turning it over to him

I wondered where it ended up.

I've wanted one since high school.

It sure is a different breed from the 990. I really want to hit the Peak-to-Peak on it.

There are ~6 thrift stores in Longmont that take stuff, so let me know if you want some names, etc. We just dumped my in-laws stuff after they passed away at several of the stores.
