Denver Mini I&i


Recommended Posts

Sunday will be visiting Denver May 12th to the 19th. No tank stuff on offer but plenty of airplanes to look at, trains to look and ride, the Air Force Acadamy and several mining museums nearby. Also at least some range time at http://www.dragonmans.com/content/shooting_rangebring your own guns or rent on site.

I will not bring guns! Seriously. Here I invite TSA to have a very close look to my luggage.

 

I am kind of interested on going to Pikes Peak. Where else you could find a 10,000ft peak that you could climb by car?

Seriously tempted to show up for a quick break (kind of need one), is there something like a plan of activities yet?

 

Not really. Plan is more or less to decide every day, but there are two days planned in Colorado Springs, with visit to AFA, Pikes Peak, the local mineral springs, and a range known by Mike S.

Everything sounds great. Except I have to have my euro vacation in july and this might be too much. I'll think about it.

 

You should have enough air miles for a quick get away.

Back home to what now feels like oppressively tropical climate.

 

A very fun if fairly short trip. There were mountains and rocks, and there was meat, and mines and stones, and some USAF here and there, and steam trains, and Mike Steele refusing to let us pay for our damn food, and hippies, but also guns, and Archer, and also lack of oxygen. 6 fridge magnets in total should give a good indication on how much stuff we packed into 4.5 days. The Joneses are the nicest people and have my deep gratitude for hosting this mini get together. I would love to visit again but with a bit more research and planning on my end and be able to do some actual hiking.
