    Still too close.

    I just looked at the map.

    I am going to suggest Grand Teton NP instead. It will add two hours to the trip. But, it's my dog's favorite place on the planet.

    I haven't been to either place. I try to avoid going anywhere near Denver.

    Denver is probably my least favorite place in the US.

    Just too busy for my liking (as most cities are.) The Springs is starting to get busier, too but it isn't nearly as bad. I only ever go up there for the airport nowadays.

    I can never sleep on planes/cars.

    I've gotta hit the gym and then try and get a nap in before my tire appointment at 1.

    Been over 100oF last couple days here in SW Germany...Germans think they will melt the world's polar caps by using AC, so instead they melt from the heat. My office is about 90 degrees. I'm sitting here sweating like somebody doing something they don't want to do but being stared down and about to be called-on, or called-out. :)

    The ones I have are still fairly new. Just been good about getting em rotated every 5k since Discount Tire does it for free.

    I have a portable AC at home - but I don't know any germans who do. See, TheGovt tells its citizens 'somethings are BAD!' and citizens believe and comply. TheGovt tells its citizens 'somethings are GOOD!' and citizens believe and comply. I kinda understand how a despot could rise to power and do awful things. My german friends complain about most of the things going on - their outrageous taxes (19% sales tax on most things, 42% income tax on income over about $60k (USD equivalent), a 5.5% 'Solidarity Tax' on top of income tax, and if you are a registered member of a church, another 8-9% on top of that. Interests, dividends, and capital gains on stocks are subject to a flat tax of 25%, in addition to the solidarity charge and church tax if applicable.), horrible fiscal and infrastructure efficiency (Road crews work on 8hr days, during the day - no weekend nor night-shifts adds untold weeks months or years to projects, very little apparent coordination for road work (often closing all arterial roads simultaneously), dumping money hand-over-fist in unproven but popular technologies and what-not. It's beyond weird. I cannot shop, use a lawn mower, electric drill in my driveway, work on a car if it makes ANY noise, or wash my car on a sunday - "Today is SUNDAY! It is FORBIDDEN!!!", as I was scolded by a Gas Station attendant when i asked about a wash. Yet 15 minutes later i set my dirty car's cruise control on 130mph and drove that way for 40 minutes or so. Nobody I passed cared. Some people passed me - they complain about things, but they refuse to do much about it.

    "We know it's bad but what can we do??" They tell me.

    "Read all you can about 1776 in the western hemisphere" I suggest.
