You'll be in Denver, as in you are moving there? I'm game. I'd say October or November for Moab/Arches. I don't think I'd have enough time to do much driving around, but I could show you around Arches for a day. It just depends on how much vacation time I still have at that point. I should have a day or two, but I'd still go even if only for the weekend (leave after work on a Friday, spend Saturday there, come back on Sunday).doctahjones wrote:so uh....first off great shots....
second, we'll be in denver starting 2/25. moab, slick rock, and arches are on my list to visit sometime within the first 12 months. you down for a rendezvous? the wife will definitely be with me so coed is just fine with me.
I'd love to work remote myself. Only so much amusement to be had whilst working in an office full of clucking hens and mentally incapacitated clients.doctahjones wrote:yah, moving to denver. it's like a dream come true. been wanting to move there since i was like 12.
everything finally came together and we're able to move. i get to keep my job (already work remote), but the wife will have to find another one. she's got a couple of bites on her resume that she's working on now.
cool deal. i'll circle back with you in sept, if we hadn't already gone by then
I know it gets hot in Texas, but the dry heat out here is pretty harsh to most people when actively doing something. With humidty, you just feel wet, but with dry air, you feel every single molecule of radiation from the sun on your skin. Let's just say I wouldn't suggest visiting in July (average high of 99) if you are planning to hike some of the longer trails. I don't have a problem with the heat and exertion, but I have been with a few people (very fit and athletic people, mind you) on various adventures here who wound up sick as a dog. All of the above only applies if you are planning on hiking some of the longer trails. If you don't expect to do much hiking, then no worries whatsoever.doctahjones wrote:whys that? remember i'm coming from a place where we have 45+ straight days of over 100F weather in the summers (with 50%+ humidity). it's brutal.
it's not that my body can't handle the summers down here in texas, it's just that i don't -want- to anymore.
however in visiting something like the arches i wouldn't mind the heat for a few days.
