    2008 Colorado Convention.

    I'm nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rockin chairs. Do you guys mind not having free time on Saturday? I'd like to pile us all on a bus Sat. Morning, and head for the Rocky Mountains. It'll be a long dang day.

    Ft Morgan, to Estes Park. http://www.estes-park.com/
    over trail ridge road http://www.nps.gov/archive/romo/visi...nicdrives.html
    to grand lake/gramby area http://www.grand-county.com/Grand_Lake.aspx
    then back down hill towards Denver to Cenrtal City/Blackhawk http://www.blackhawkcolorado.com/
    Then a late night drive through Denver back to the Ft Morgan hotel.

    Well everyone has a year to decide. But I say let the option be open. I know I would love to see the sites but the bf likes to sleep late so he may not even be out of bed till noon. Hell if I can get him on a plane I would be good.

    Thats why I'm asking now. Dice had a bus in Pittsburgh [with a full bar] and it was a gas!

    No, I just really would like to get you guys up to the mountains. Trail Ridge Road goes to almost 13,000 ft. It's pretty rare to be eye to eye with the clouds and still standing on the ground. 65 miles long through some of the most amazing scenery. One of the top 10 scenic mountain drives in the whole wide world I'm sure. Not going to the rockies while in Colorado would be like going to Vermont and not tasting the syrup, or so I think. Ft morgan has nothing to do or see cept alcohol. I gues I could take ya all arrowhead hunting.

    I get all of your e-mails. 10 since April, and I reply every time. It's your computer that kicks mine out.

    Well I know I would be in. I would be a fool to miss out on such beautiful scenery.

    You forgot an exhaust fan. There is a member or two that like to smoke.

    We used to vacation there twice a summer when I was in junior and senior high. The path Jack is proposing has phenomenal views. You will absolutely love the tour. I've made nearly the same loop several times. One of my favorite views is above the visitor center at Rocky Mountain National Park.
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    Now that's a cool idea there, Jack. I'd be in on that for sure.
