I noticed Colorado Powersports here in Boulder has been flying a Klim banner flag outside recently, but I haven't been inside to see what kind of inventory they have.

I just use liners with my lite bag. I have one kind of like this and another that's silk.

With both of them I'm getting down where I want the heavy mountaineering bag---but then I'm not on the bike.

I get 3 bags in one with the two liners and they are compact, especially the silk one that packed is smaller than a roll of TP.

Downside is you can't wear them under riding gear if things get cold like extra underwear. Upside is one of my uses for a sleeping bag is for treating shock in accident victims and then I want all I can get.

Not a thread worthy question so I'm asking it here......

Mrs. Manfu is going to join me for a portion of my summer CO dirt bike and brew tour. We want to spend 4th of July together before she flys back but not sure where in CO we'll be spending the 4th. Last year someone mentioned a great town for fireworks but I can't rememeber???

Any suggestions for a nice 4th of July location?

Scene of numerous adventures from my youth. The first time I rode a motorcycle anywhere it was there, planning to camp out. I tried getting a T500 on street tires up that steep slickrock protecting the jeep road back into the big cirque above town. With a full camping load.

I didn't make it.

They don't have fireworks on the calender (yet?) but there's a church dance on Sunday that ought to be worthwhile.

Good intell, Ouray was my favorite last summer - the trails, the town, the lodging and the obviously the pub. Only 2 night indoors all trip were at Box Canyon Logde - took full advantage of the hot tubs .

This made it back to Daytona with me and I busted it out 48 hours later as I pulled in the driveway......



Thanks!

Steamboat Springs usually puts on a ridiculously long and elaborate show for a small town. There are a couple of wealthy local guys that have taken up the cause, and building fireworks has become a hobby of theirs. The only time that they don't put on the show ........ is when fire danger is extreme. It's rare that they ever have to cancel it.

We just recently celebrated our 101st Winter Carnival. Again, it was another "over the top" fireworks show. The largest fireworks shell ever shot in North America ....... is a 36" shell. We had a 36", 500lb. shell in our fireworks show a few weeks ago! Supposedly they had to get FAA clearance to shoot that shell as it entered the airport flight path! Future plans are for the local guys to build a 54" shell for a TBD local show, and then have the world record in Steamboat. Like I said, "OVER THE TOP". There's a short article in the Feb. 2nd Steamboat Paper about it.

What they spend on fireworks here every year could probably cure cancer or end hunger .............. or at least buy a lot of fuel and farkles!

+1 for Steamboat. Gunnison also does a great show.

Luv it. Wish I could have been there. We used to go to the July 4 show at Mono Lake when I was working out there. They would set off barrels of gasoline with dynamite to start the show off. Low tech stuff, but really inspiring. Then the show went of to lots of big colored blasts over the lake.

Without getting too off color here Rob, this sounds like classic "PD Syndrome!"
