Of his 37th year.
Ok, it was May. But I was 37 the first time I saw the Rockies as an adult. I'd gone out to Denver with Vicki to a conference.
Have you ever seen that Subaru commercial, "Call of the Wild" where all the animals are calling "Ricky!"? (I really like the porcupine, by the way).
Well that's what the mountains did to me in 2001, much to Vicki's chagrin. Actually, no, it precipitated our first real vacation (where you take a whole week off and go somewhere besides a relative's house) then following year. And she likes the mountains just fine. She just wants to go somewhere else now. So do I. But mountains are cheaper! Plus, I promised myself back in 2001 I'd go out there once every year.
Headed out to RMNP with Mark tomorrow morning. Vicki's not going this year. Her mom is having some procedure done to her heart to stop the fluttering.
So at any rate, don't expect any posts for at least a week. Although we will have a laptop and we might find a wireless hotspot. So you never know.
