    It was, FYI...the ice pics were from my Sub Zero cooler. Put it in the back of my truck Friday night. Didn't pre-freeze cooler...but as you can see the ice I put in melded to my blue ice packs. Pic taken after I got back. This is a good example why I don't give a rat's behind about what "roto-molded" hi end cooler is better. I totally ignore reviews. I used pre- frozen blue ice pacs and one $1 bag of ice from Save-A-Lot. I had at least 2 to 3 days left keeping my food preserved.

    Just took this pic. I have video of Manny hiking up Dakota "Hill" @ 11K ft with my grand daughters. Only 150 yards up from camp site but almost 490ft gain in altitude. Breaking his a** in early. Manny gets to sleep in. I'm up in 6 hours. Great..............

    Don't remember all the words to what I think was a Visa card commercial, but it ends in: "priceless". You will never lose memories of a great trip like that Matt !

    Went up to my friends property above Central City. Took the Sub Zero cooler. Removed the casters. The non skid feet are the same as Yeti's. (IE= very good). I re-used a large clump of ice left over from last weekend. Around 1 o'clock we got hit with a 25 minute thunder /hail storm. It was crazy. We all hunkered in my friends canopy. We couldn't hear each other talk. Looked like it snowed. Got the kids wool blankets to keep warm. Got back into Denver. 90 degrees.o_O

    I almost forgot...Turned over 79K miles today. Not bad for a 10 year old Tundra.

    Pretty much everything I've added came off Craig's List except for the OME coilovers/rear shocks and the wheels from ToyTec by way of Sean, tires from Big O. It is sick..as in fracked up bumper, fender, headlight, and a few other smaller pieces. Hope to get all that squared away soon.

    Yeah. I've been mulling some serious changes though. I already have a replacement OEM "sport" bumper I got off Craig's List, but now "Toy"ing with the thought again of going with aftermarket winch bumper. $$$$:(

    I figured now is a good time to make any changes. Definitely a good excuse to change headlights too since drivers side head light brackets are fracked up too.

    Zach can turn that burnt field into potato gold pretty quick. My $ tree won't even make good smoking chips.

    It only requires $5,000-7,000 per acre to potentially make $9,100. Plus a few million dollars worth of equipment.

    Going to be posting some awesome pics shortly why I love CO. Why I'm breaking in my grandkids to this wonderful state. No offense, I'm a Texan and love AK. Really love AK. 2 1/2 times larger than Texas by the way and not flat like TX. CO definitely not flat. No offense...But I choose to live here.....in CO.

    Unfortunately I don't think we have enough consistently high humidity to grow em here Matt. The only place that might come even remotely close is Rocky Ford, and melons seem to be the winning ticket there.

    We can grow damn near anything here, hell I have a customer that owns a vineyard here! but I don't think mangos are possible.

    Rocky Ford melons just started to appear in our local King Soup. Cantaloupes to die for. Well..almost. R Ford produces the best melons anywhere IMHO and a few million others.

    Didn't make it to truck fest yesterday. Ended up having to redo rear brakes. My brakes and tires take a hell of a beating every time I go up.Took some PTO from work today to take gkids back "up" since they got screwed over yesterday. Mushrooms finally starting to show up with all the monsoon activity going on lately. Found some giant Magic mushrooms that some folks would love to poison their brain cells with...literally..for that "high". Largest I've come across. Explained to the kids to avoid these. No King Boletes yet. Maybe next week. Went to drop down to my friends property....Access blocked off by Forest Service during sometime last week. Sent pic to my friend. Not Happy. His main access to his property since 1994. To make it even more stupid there is a very nice vacation home down that way too. Needless to say the Forest Service is going to get an ear full tomorrow and most likely two lawyers wll be getting phone calls. There is a law here in CO that if you utilize a property with no interference, complaints, anything..for "X" amount of years..(17 I think) then you can claim ownership. This should get interesting indeed. This is not an isolated incident. I've seen several other access roads now blocked off. Nothing in the news, FS website, etc.....Feds sneaking around and doing things without letting anyone know about it? Never happens...:spy::spy::spy:

    a lot of trails are being shut down by lawsuits from ecoterrorist groups funded by people that don't even live in this state (ex: barking dog and twin cone). it's easier for the fs to cave in to the lawsuit if no one is there to fight for the trail and the 4x4 community is becoming less and less involved in the politics and they're not supporting the groups fighting to keep the trails open. it's sad, but we'll lose a lot more trails. there's a chance that this is one of those instances. rs2477 doesn't apply in those cases. i'm guessing this is in an area that's not adopted by a club.

    The thing is this road has been a property access for decades although getting heavier use nowadays by folks who don't own property there. It's a FS road that runs through private property and public land. If you were to look at a map for that area you would be totally confused. There are so many private lots dating pre 1900 interspersed with public land. Some people have built homes/cabins there. Most folks up there do not want a club to adopt. Be hard to. They don't want them going thru their property even though the road is a public road. Crazy situation indeed. I'm thinking the FS service will re-open the access road to my friends property. He has has unfettered access to for over 20 years. Doesn't make logical sense to suddenly without notice to close it knowing people are using it to get to their property. Biggest problem is the "without any notice". There are usually public hearings about road closures that truly restrict access to everyone's property.
