    Re: Everythings on fire!

    Here's a good website for the Cameron Fire. Looks like some of the Storm Mountain area was burned. We could see flames from our place west of Berthoud which might have been in that area.

    Road 23 near US 40 is close to where my buddy and I used to hunt cow elk in the winter season after Christmas.

  13. Re: Coronavirus-driven ban on mass gatherings voted down in Moab

    Iím bummed that I wonít get a few more days of skiing in this year. But itís just a minor inconvenience compared to just one more person becoming seriously ill or worse from this virus.

    Bighorns with Dash Cam

    On the way to ski last week. They were licking the road (you can see the wet spots), presumably because the leftover deicer tastes salty.

    I installed the Crosstour CR600 in my wife's car. It's the same unit as the Apeman C500, but in a slightly different case. One thing I liked is that the adhesive pad was a dark grey which...
