    But without AWD, how will I manage the drive to the hardware store and back?

    Went to ford.com/maverick last night and built a base model, Cactus Grey with only three options, the 110v outlets, fullsize spare tire and tow package as a potential replacement for my DD. With $2186.00 down, no trade in, it comes out to $21,885.00 or $372.00 a month for 60 months. It's cheaper than a decent used car even at full MSRP. I'm interested to see what the tax credits / incentives are for it, but even without that is very affordable and it's new; I've been looking at used vehicles for a few months and they all look like some degree of project and I'd rather make a payment than turn a wrench. Cool little trucks, can't wait to test drive one.

    I just poked over to Inciweb and see nothing...

    Does anyone know of any current / new forest fire up near FoCo? I'm seeing clouds that just seem like they could be smoke...

    I know of one near Schofield, UT but think one would only see a slight haze from it around here.

    I didn’t see anything up that way, a coupe in the Pike NF. I get an RSS feed for that area which helps me keep an eye on things. You can sign up for alerts for the Arapaho’s/Roosevelt at https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/arp/alerts-notices. These are quicker than Inciweb.

    Pike/San Isabel has more dedicated info, not sure the A/R link I gave will provide much. For reference, the PSICC fire page is https://psiccfireinfo.blogspot.com/p...f-updates.html, and is where I get the RSS feed from.

    Guess it's tick season. Came in from work last night and got ready to take a shower. And just just before I got in, I felt a pinch on my stomach. My immediate reaction was to look at what bit me and pull it off of myself. It was one of the largest ticks I have ever seen. It left a nice small bump/welt even. Thought it was odd as I hadn't been through any grass or trees. Literally worked all day from 7am to 2am except for a short trip to pick up more meds from the vet. But that was at around noon and the tick incident was about 2 or 230am. So not sure where I picked it up from. I did check the dog throughly and no signs of any.

    In line with the nice Colorado history Paul found is this I came across recently - the history of different rail lines, some of which we use as trails today.

    "Had a client ask if I was willing and able to assemble and weld together some Coastal Off Road bumper kits and some sliders from 4x Innovations and document it for them. No worries right? Well the quality of parts we received from Coastal were crap. Laser cut parts with heavy edge burring, and round tubing send out with bends being out of plane to each other. Meaning you can lay the grill hoop on the fab table and it won't lay flat. And that's just with the front bumper so far. Client decided that he didn't want to deal with the manufacturer since they are in Canada so I get to fix things up. Sucks that QC has gone down for so many companies lately. Getting correct and good quality parts has really been a struggle the past few months/year. I have heard the same from many different people in many different fields of work. Any of you experiences issues?"

    Got both the bumpers modified enough to fit well. Can not believe a company would let parts out their door that were this bad. But a little thought and effort got them to where they need to be. Client is very happy and that's all that matters. So now I just need to finish welding them solid and then sand them smooth.

    The Typhoon was one of my dream cars back in the day as a teen, maybe part of the reasons they were so rare to see was them being unreliable lol

    Been spending some time getting my thrills on 2 wheels lately. So glad to have bike back together and getting my normal life back after wreck last year. Made a video clip of a section from last week. Had to cover up the wind noise and the choices on youtube really are not great but better than the constant noise.

    I reserved one of these last week and the dealer is already sending me offers, it may end up being even cheaper. The payments amount to lunch money, about $100.00 a week, and I can take another $20.00 off that for gas savings. It's almost like a free car.
