I’ve been back for a week now, and yet I still haven’t managed to post a single thing about my trip out to Colorado. I spent a whole week out there this month, and I was so busy having a good time that I never got around to writing about it.
The weather is interesting east of the Front Range. In the time that it took us to build a single raised planter bed, I got sunburned and snowed on. It was about 72 degrees one day and snowing the next. Then there was hail, and by the time I left it had warmed up again. I kind of liked it, California’s weather is fairly boring by comparison.
Beer themed activities were as always a big hit. We brewed up a batch of dunkelweisen to try out some new equipment, and we also planted hops in a couple halves of an old port barrel by the side fence.
BBQ and ice cream are mandatory in Colorado. I don’t thing I am able to go out there without patronizing LuLu’s and Sweet Cow in Louisville, both of which were has this time around. The brisket nachos really hit the spot.
I think I’d like to live in Louisville. I don’t know what I would do there exactly, there doesn’t seem to be a huge demand for software and without a family of my own I wouldn’t really get so much benefit out of the surroundings. It just seems like a nice place to live, or at least to visit. Yeah, I’ll stick with visiting. For myself, I would be happier with a quarter section of land and a hobby farm. I’d probably go broke on the endeavor but the fantasy of living on a farm seems nice compared to sitting in an office all day.
Anyway, now that I’ve been back for a week I sure miss the peeps out there! I can’t wait to go back!
