    It's hard to find good help. I needed a cable outlet in a room that didn't have one. Yes, I could do it, but Comcast said they could do it for $40. I figure why not. First guy drills a hole through the side of the house, snakes a cable through, and calls it good. I call Comcast...new dude comes out and says that's crazy, and starts to put in an outlet. He's doing things right, but to fix the other dude's screwups, he has to do some work outside, too. Queue the thunderstorm, extremely close lightning, and heavy rain, and I say it's ok to come back the next day. All good there, there's an outlet in place, but not hooked up yet. Third guy comes out, gets to work, and while I'm sitting at my desk, a big ass drill bit comes up through the hardwood floor, about a foot from the wall. "Oops, I thought I was coming up through the wall". Sigh. Eventually everything is connected and cabled correctly, but now I have two "damage to property" claims open with Comcast, one to fix the drywall, and one to fix my floor. Fuck it, I'm done calling people to do stuff that I know I can do.

    Way back in the day I was in my Bronco and my friend in his Scout II... got through a couple of the creek crossings then got to one that was raging. He went first (I'm no dummy) and immediately started getting swept downstream. Wide open throttle of the 390 motor eventually got him up the bank about 30' down the crossing. Almost took him over. Never seen anything like that.

    Of course as soon as I dropped in I went full throttle with the 351 and I too got up the bank about 10' downstream from the crossing.

    It was insane flow.

    Current Road Conditions
    updated June 15, 2019

    The road is currently open only to the first creek crossing, 4.5 miles from the western entrance of the road. Campsites in Medano Canyon are NOT currently accessible by vehicle. The road has had extensive damage from very high runoff.

    He's going to drink Telluride out of their supply of Busch Light while at Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Driving his Boulder car (Subaru). Where have you been? It's like you haven't been bored at work, like I have been...

    Youre
    Youre such an ass hole!!!!! Why would you do that when I am gone????? You know how much I have been looking forward to mutilating that thing.

    I think I may have to re-evaluate our friendship. Friends don’t do friends that way.
