"The other line always moves faster until you get in it."
WHERE I'VE BEEN LATELY...
It's been a busy spring and summer. In March, Dianne and I headed down to Scottsdale to research an assigned story about Colorado Rockies spring training.
In April it was off to San Francisco for Canada Media Marketplace where I talked to PR folks about our planned 2015 camping journey across the Great White North.
On May 2nd, Dianne retired from 30+ years of nursing, an event we celebrated with four friends on a chartered yacht cruise around the Virgin Islands.
In June, I was off to Canyons of the Ancients and Hovenweep National Monuments in southwestern Colorado followed by a five-day float trip down the Yampa River in Dinosaur National Monument.
That was followed by a 95-degree backpacking photo shoot in the Dominguez Canyon Wilderness Area near Grand Junction. In July, we made an 11-day trailer camping trip to five nearby Colorado State Parks.
WHERE I'M GOING…
August will find us on a 17-day "Summer Fun" road trip to eight Colorado towns interspersed with a few days of camping along the Alpine Loop 4x4 Scenic Byway in the San Juan Mountains near Durango.
We'll also be exploring Colorado brewpubs along the way for my Denver Post column.
That will almost immediately be followed by a two-week road trip to California for Dianne's annual family campout. We'll be trailer camping on the way there and doing a Summer Fun exploration of Grand Junction on the way back.
Then it's horsing around in fall color at four Colorado dude ranches. That will be followed, I hope, by three months of rest and relaxation.
