It stopped snowing, the sun is out, the birds are singing
We finally ventured out of our cozy shell. We also moved to another park in downtown Golden - Clear Creek RV Park. What a nice little town. Except for that ugly big factory with the smokestacks ... ooops, that's the Coors brewery. Coors is what puts Golden on the map, and apparently they are a very good community citizen. They also give a great 1.5 hour tour with free beer. You can bet we'll do that - as soon as we finish our seminars tomorrow. Jim tells a great story of a road trip when he was 21 ... at that time, they didn't sell Coors east of the Mississippi - so it was kinda special to him and his friends in LBI, New Jersey. 3 guys took off in Jim's truck and, after 36 straight hours of driving, they toured the Coors brewery. Then they drove home with a couple of cases. Here's Jim standing with a statue of Adolph Coors. The Clear Creek RV park feels more like a campground. There are only 31 sites and it's right on the banks of this beautiful creek. And, this creek is developed as a course for kayaks!I hope we get to see a kayak in the water before we leave. No, we're not going to try this with our Ocean Kayak! Ocean Kayaks are meant for just that - oceans - not for quick maneuvers. Ok, back to our computer work ... Isn't this a great t-shirt for Jim? Thanx Frankie!
