Beautiful Colorado Weather Cooking Backcountry Corn

Post by blogger | April 12, 2005      

We’re having a beautiful string of cold nights and sunny days here in central Colorado — should be setting up a good backcountry skiing snowpack, will find out today or tomorrow and report back. Meanwhile, we’re ramping up for some mountain biking and Jeeping in Moab (yes, between corn snow backcountry skiing descents we usually run off to Moab for a slickrock fix). Rumble Bee Jeep got a new synthetic winch line yesterday (hey, that stuff would make a good randonnee rope!), and gets the front driveshaft shortened a bit this week so it’s totally rock ready.

Will continue to blog every day through spring and see how our website traffic looks. We have some interesting posts planned, so stick around. If readership goes low, I’ll do an every-other-day schedule or something like that. We have a few wilderness trips planned, so won’t be posting here during those — at least one computer free trip this spring and one late summer.

If you’ve enjoyed this winter’s blog, please continue to explore our advertisers so I can take time out of my day to post. And thanks goes out to all who supported this blog throughout last winter. It was a fun experience. I got tons of feedback, 99% positive with a few “eat S and die” comments for spice. Will continue the mix of backcountry skiing gear and opinion, with some summer surprises thrown in. Please continue to send your blog comments and contributions. I read everything and respond to nearly every email I get (some might get blocked by my spam blocker, but I try to prevent that). And of course, get out there and harvest some corn for breakfast!
