    Just got back from Silverton and it looks like we will be spending the summer there starting next year. We just purchased the "Rocky Mountain Funnel Cake Cafe" right in the middle of Greene Street. Anyone in the area next year be sure and stop by, it's the only shop in town with a big "ADV" sticker in the front window....

    That's the plan, but we all know what can happen to the best made plans. But I can't think of a better place to be. Are you going camping this weekend??

    Hey good luck on your new venture, it is a great place to wake up to in the morning.

    Well unless like the last time I was there and woke up to a flat tire.

    Good luck with the new venture...

    Rode through Silverton this past August... through the monsoon.

    Enjoyed the ride... plan on repeating the trip next summer, hopefully in sunshine.

    Will try to drop by.

    Man that's awesome! Every time I'm in CO my mind is spinning trying to come up with a way to make a living out there. Best of luck> Now I have another reason to visit that area again.

    I know folks who make their living with a shop in CO for the summer and one in Hawaii in the winter. Sucking up those tourist $$$ in paradise year round. They are always smiling!
