    Well fellow Coloradans, it's time for me to move on.
    Secured a nice job in Michigan, so I'm out this week.
    It will be a big change for this native, but new roads and trails to explore await me back east.
    I'll be back from time to time, y'all can't get rid of me entirely.
    Ride fast, take chances, life is short.

    One of my favorite places in Colorado.
    West side of Black Mountain looking west to the Collegiates.
    Adios!

    Best of luck Bash, maybe see you on a Dino Ride. Not to many of those left as we are looking at the retirement thing in the next few years.

    Good luck on the new job. The UP has some nice areas. Good snowmobile trails through the woods I have heard about. Some good ice fishing, and summer fishing as well.

    Our loss, Michigan's gain. Wish I'd had more time to ride with you. My "Southern" connection moves on. Go 'tag 'em! ; :wave

    Oh man, congrats. Lots of single track in the UP.

    Not sure I could ever move east, up, flatter & in the center. I meet a ton in FoCo who moved here to escape that. They say.
    Cold and humid winters. Hot and humid summers. Amazing long fall seasons & earlier springs than here. The
    older I get I'm yearning for south and westerly.

    Best of luck and thanks!
