I passed a Google Earth car headed west on I-40 on Wednesday (4-16-14) in New Mexico. Must be updating their info.

Looks like the Donkey got spooked by the Google Maps vehicles and ran into it. They tend use Subaru Imprezas the most. 2 are parked in Fort Collins today

Felidades. Muy guapa.

I might be up for a Colorado ride some time. Be sure to ride up Turkey Creek Canyon.

Lived in Colorado for the longest stretch of my military career. Colorado Springs.

Something about that state calls me home. Reminds me of Durango (Mexico) and the Sierra. So many of my buds have Colorado connections.

I still have family there.

You, Tom, and SR, RMO, Jimmex, Bill, and tons more of my amigos have Colorado anchors.

I'm hauling the KTM to Telluride and discussing all this with my favorite Hollywood mogul, RMO.

I'm intent on riding the Colorado back country with Bill's map (fantastic). Our "Man From Sayulita" knows maps.

Then jump the border to Utah. South to Arizona. East to New Mexico. Then home.

Tricedaughter (2012 study abroad in Prague)

She starts this summer at Colorado State in Fort Collins for grad school (Occupational Therapy). She's my #1 reason to make Colorado my "home away from home" (again).

David in Telluride

Jimmy in Rico

And Bill, well, right there in Fort Collins!

SR - our graduate of the Colorado School of Mines in Golden

Probably a bunch more

Don't underestimate the Colorado/Mexico connection

Fortunately, now they sell Coors Light at OXXO. So in Mexico we're never more than 2 blocks away from finding a traguito de nuestra tierra! It's very comforting!

Viva Colorado!

And the map pinpointer is, just so you know, for "Arturo's Tacos", not a seismic event
