Denver Agin.

 Snew on the shrubs greeted our latest arrival to Denver!

After closing, all the seller's stuff is gone. We got shoes in! Furniture next week. I'm deciding about the green. Stay or go. We'll see.

Colorado October 2010

Yet another trip to Denver, this time to pick out a condo. We found one all ready to inhabit, renovated, and with a new kitchen. The listing pictures have disappeared from the net, since the unit is sold - to us!. But here are some nice pictures taken on a lazy drive onna Sunday afternoon near Denver.

Windy Update

Gotta call yesterday from Brett at the moho dealer. Due to a lack of Bosch brake calipers, he's ordered some aftermarket parts to git my moho motorating again. Blogs indicate this is a good move. Inna few days, the brakes will be good, the satellite will be receiving, we'll be all washed and polished, and I'll be able to air up all the tyres myself for the first time ever.

Then we'll see about a little interior renov. Perhaps trade out the sofa for an ultra leather model.

Natchez Trace Parkway, a few years ago

Several years ago, I got notice from Efram Zimbalist, Jr. that I'd better pay up on a speedin' ticket in my name writ on the Natchez Trace Parkway. Since this was before the era of Breitbart and Fox Noise, one fone call cleared up the cornfusion. See, I'd never been there! Well, several years later I decided that we should examine this Parkway. I have some pictures of it elsewhere on this blog from a recent drive on the beautiful road, but here are some pictures taken years ago on our first drive on the Natchez Trace Parkway.

A front porch is always a good idea.

The Windy's in the shop

Well, work progresses on getting the Windy suitable once again for campin'. Workhorse has authorized yet another brake caliper replacement and I'm having the shop turn the front rotors, replace the am/cb antenna, adjust the satellite dish, wash 'n polish... That should do it.

Workhorse Brake Recall

Hot brakes are bad brakes!

So the Windy has had brake trouble in the past that is covered by a recall. Smoking, grabbing brakes, soft pedal, grinding noise, and failed anti-lock system. Yikes!

Unfortunately, we thought the problemo was fixed, but a few weeks ago the brakes began acting really bad as we returned to Houston from Galveston.

The Workhorse factory sez they do not know when Bosch will have new brake calipers available and the local dealer doesn't know when they'll have any calipers at all available.

So the Windy sits.

Denver, Colorado

For a few weeks we had been planning a trip with the Windy to camp near Hot Springs, Arkansas. A brake problem forced us to make other plans. I guess the good thing about that is that we might have camped in that area in Hot Springs that flooded, with loss of life. Instead, we headed to Denver in the Tribby.

Denver was on its best behavior with cool evenings and warm, dry days. There was snow in the mountains the week before we got there.

Beastie found his spot for the journey. Guess he was trying to keep his toes warm.

Left foot in Tejas, right foot in New Mexico.

Capulin Mountain, an extinct volcano in New Mexico. You can drive to the caldera and get a great view of the surrounding desert.

City Park

Relaxin' at the B&B. An old brownstone that is being restored.

You gotta drive in the mountains when visiting Denver.

I understand that this is the latest in airliner technology for Southwest Airlines. I'm told it is named after a famous rock group.

More driving in the mountains.

Eating dessert in Vail. Big dessert. Deelishious!

Under the Aspen trees.

Gay pride parade outside the B&B. Lots of fake boobs and underwear. Umm....

Some folks rafting by...

This was as close to off-roadin' that the Tribby got.
