It happens every winter. Sometimes we just forget, but it always comes at some point. The snowcast for the next several days looks incredible (if you like deep snow)

Mitt Romney has received millions of dollars in campaign donations from the oil and gas industry. In Colorado, he has a 50-person energy advisory committee, more than 40 of which are associated with the oil, gas, or coal industry.

100 volunteers are desired for this project, no prior experience is needed. Sept 22-23. You do not have to sign up for both days, and we’ll gladly take only one day if that works better for you. VOC requests that volunteers pre-register if possible to plan for tools, supplies, food, and camping. This is a highly unique trail building weekend.

Cornflakes or Cheerios? Breakfast Blend or French Roast? Do I have time to brush my teeth? Which pants should I wear?

“Yes. In that area — I’m not sure if it’s a designated parking area — in fact, I’m very sure it’s NOT a designated parking area, but it’s been used as a parking and camping area for as long as I’ve lived in this area…”

When you say, ‘open all County roads to OHVs,’ it’s not for recreation; it’s just so someone can ride their OHV into town to get their mail…”
