Stop finding excuses and get on the road. It's been far too long.
So I 'm heading to CO solo and really looking forward to the trip. I have gotten some fantastic recon from The CE (thank you!) and now at least have a destination and sort of plan. I know there's a bunch of Drakians in the Denver area and I'd love to get to fish with as many as possible or at least have a beer. If some fishing spots got mentioned along the way, that'd be all right too. I'm likely to follow my usual MO and stumble from one recommendation to another. CO is fuckin huge and even focusing on the NW of Denver area is crazy figuring where to start.
Hitting the road from WNY Monday 8/28 and looking for somewhere to stop for the night along rt 80 in maybe the Iowa city area or a bit west of there. Making the first day longer to allow for some camp setup when I arrive in CO the second night. Hotel, Bisexual rest area (not gay), farm field, any suggestions welcome. I'd even alter the route slightly for something good. Gonna miss the Corn Palace but I guess I'll survive.
I'll be getting to the land of The CE around 8/29 and camping for a couple of nights, hopefully acclimatizing to the stratosphere, before heading to Denver for some smelly hippy weekend shows. Then it's back to camping and fishing the week of labor day through that next weekend. Might have a couple of other flatlanders with me the last week. They can keep their mouths shut too.
CE has given me some spots to consider and we'll do our best to hit as much as possible. If anyone else wants to join in we'd be grateful for the company.
