Reverse Warning!

Joe, I've been in Colorado & everyone drives fast! Be prepared to be passed or have a line of cars behind you, itching for a passing zone. Be prepared to find overlooks to let the others by.

BTW, they also drive $500 cars with $3,000 mountain bikes mounted on the roofs.

It's common courtesy in the mountains to pull over when you get 3 or 4 cars (or semis) behind you.

Stick around out there for a couple of weeks and I'll let you buy me lunch.

If you end up in Woodland Park/PIkes Peak let me know. If yoyu are riding up the peak this morning it is beautiful. Not a cloud to be seen.

Joe is back home but Colorado is missing one large bird! The scene of the crime will have fragments of his mirror. If Colorado prosecutes bird poaching with a wing, Joe is their man!!
Dumb bird should learn to fly faster than 70 mph. 71 would have done it.
