    Instead of complaining, come out and ride this coming Saturday. North of Fort Collins, I'm planning a forest road loop that will take us into the Redfeather Lakes area. We won't be doing any difficult trails, but should end up with plenty of snow/ice. Big adventure bikes not recommended. Inquire within for details.

    No complaints from our household... it's winter in Colorado...it's suppose to snow...we need beer & rafting water for next year!

    Off to ski & ride Eldora this weekend.
    It's snowing now and so I lit the fire pit and drank a beer.

    We took Pingree Park / Pennock Pass / Buckhorn canyon on the way home. Yeah, the 500 is the biggest bike I want to be riding in the snow. I had both tires down to about 10psi. The first year I had my 990 I did snow, ice, and deep sand. It didn't take long to realize that it's the wrong kind of adrenaline rush riding a 600 pound bike in those conditions.

    Bill, it was good to see you the other day. The beer fridge is always well stocked :deal

    Got in a little ride on southern Rampart Rd. yesterday as the seasonal closure will take effect in a few days. Didn't get far before the snow/ice became a little too much for me. Headed over to Jack's, and rode a couple laps on the lower section before heading home.

    Got home to see 12-18" forecast for most of the front range between now and Sunday, so we cancelled our travel plans for the holiday. That amount of snow is nothing to mess with in western Nebraska. Been there, done that, not doing it again.

    Here at Smoky Hill and E470 we are at 14" + with it still coming down hard. Too bad the fuel line fitting I ordered for the snow blower did come yet. :dirtdog

    Guess I made the wise choice not sneaking off to New Mexico to ride with plans to return today for Thanksgiving prep. I would not be happy trying to limp home in this crap...and my wife would be even madder!

    Stay warm Rockies!

    Not much riding today near Red Feathers, maybe tomorrow, actually on top of Kelly Flats is more accurate location. Our deck and still snowing.

    Looking forward to your personal hot spring pic.

    So how does that work? Are you on the source canal and have water rights? Do you drill and have rights? Do you tap off another place?
    Where does your out flow go?
    Are you allowed to heat with like in Pagosa Springs. Can anyone do this? Are there any more properties for sale with this ability????

    Personal hot springs water rights is an extremely rare thing to have in the US as you know.

    The big house up near Strawberry Hot Springs in Steamboat drilled and pumped out from the water seam but has to put back all that water into the ground as a sealed loop closed system so not to affect the flow to the surface exit of water at the hot springs. Big $$$ system to create to do it legally.

    We have a well that taps into the hot water aquifer. Our well is about 35 ft deep, but hits water at around 6 ft. We have a licensed well, and I believe there is a moratorium on new well permits, or it's limited to so many in an area or something. Not exactly sure; the well was already here when we bought the place. There are lots of places in the "water district" in TorC with wells, and I believe you can do whatever you want with it. I don't think you'd want to heat with it; there are so many minerals in this water that I would think it would calcify your pipes pretty quickly. :dunno
