The Hills are Alive!

Sometimes when you retrace your steps and return to places you've been before, you have your eyes on doing things you meant to do the first time around but didn't. For us, in returning to Central City for a quick stop. We liked the view from the KOA there (spots 1-10 only, if you're looking) so decided to spend half our long weekend there. There was a path where we saw bikers and hikers the year before so decided to check it out.

Buh bye!

After spending 4 months in Breckenridge, CO, the time has come to leave to our long trek back to Florida for the winter. We’d love to stay, but there’s this thing called “snow” that we aren’t too fond of. And in the mountains, snow is abundant. It’s not you, Breckenridge, it’s us. We had no intent on visiting Breckenridge last year when friends we met in Red Bay, AL (Tiffin campground, where hopeful sad broken Tiffins go to get fixed) said, “Oh, you’re going to Colorado? You must do Tiger Run!” We were late to the game and only were…

There Goes the Sun

We kind of argued with ourselves in regards to the eclipse. We were in Breckenridge which was supposed to have 90% totality. Having been to Wyoming and not itching to get back there, do we stay? Do we go? We didn't really have equipment to capture the eclipse so even if we were to be there in person, just our memories would need to hold us through. We opted to stay in Breckenridge. Prime eclipse viewing was scheduled for 11:45 Mountain Time. We headed out around 9:45 to search for the prime viewing area. We found it - a field…

Fire on the Mountain

There is no better time to do a review of a firepit right after a fire ban, no? You may have seen our area on the news (our families certainly did with people coming out of the woodwork ensuring we were safe...we are!) that there have been some forest fires and evacuations as a result of some careless people. So do as we say, not as we do. Start a fire. And do it without much muss or fuss. What: Flame Genie Wood Pellet Fire Pit Where to Buy: Amazon or direct from manufacturer Price: Around $100 If you're like us,…

Blue Sky Challenge

We were challenged The Blue Sky Challenge by Chickery's Travels. Challenge accepted! For those of you who don’t know, the Blue Sky Challenge is issued by fellow bloggers to some of their favorite blogs. The Rules As part of it, we must answer 11 questions from my nominator, then nominate 11 blogs that I love and give them 11 new questions. Our Answers 1. What fictional universe would you want to live in? Doctor Who universe. Of course, Kim gets very thrown off by changes from Pacific to Mountain to Central to Eastern time, so it would be a bit challenging.…

Mac & Cheese Festival

You all are probably thinking "Seriously? Another festival?" What did we say? Summer is the time for festivals in the Breckenridge CO area. We had the choice of a wine festival and mac & cheese festival - same day, different places. We opted for mac & cheese because wine festivals happen all the time. Mac & cheese? Not so much. And not every festival has a Friends theme (fake tv show within a fake tv show), so it was a no-brainer. [caption id="attachment_1122" align="aligncenter" width="734"] How YOU doin'? We didn't visit this Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E[/caption] This festival was held at Copper…

Gov’t Surprises

You sometimes don't know what to expect until you actually are doing it. Sure, you can plan and prepare but even then, you come across unexpected good surprises and unexpected bad ones. We will be reviewing what those are, based on subject. The first round is about government-run campgrounds. The Good 1. COE Campgrounds. You may be wondering "what does COE mean?" We'll tell you. "COE" stands for "Corps of Engineers". They are usually located near water and you won't generally find camphosts greeting you and showing you to the non-existent pool, but what bang you get for your buck! These are…

Big Beers

The summer is festival time for the Breckenridge area. Who knew? We aren't ones to be "food" tourists. You know what we mean - you ask people to list places to see in the area and 99% of what they list are restaurants. We aren't those types, but you add the word "festival" to the end of that? We're game. [caption id="attachment_1061" align="aligncenter" width="4032"] Attack of the Big Beers (and Grilled Cheese)[/caption] After the Frisco BBQ festival, we kind of expected it to be a madhouse, although we'd never been to Copper Mountain so didn't know what to expect. "Big…

Mess of Mama’s BBQ

The Breckenridge area isn't just about mountains! We were lucky to attend the Frisco BBQ Festival which is a haven if you like BBQ, beer, ice cream or all of the above. [caption id="attachment_1026" align="aligncenter" width="960"] Entrance to the festival[/caption] We saw a few vendors staying in our RV park, along with amazingly huge smokers and trailers. We didn't see the train smoker in our park but found it at the festival. [caption id="attachment_1025" align="aligncenter" width="960"] Smoker disguised as train[/caption] First thing's first: you cannot use cash at this event. You need to buy tickets, called "Hogbacks" (why not Hogcash?…
