Back To Colorado

For whatever reason over many years things just seem to happen on or around March 4. Today climb onto the silver bullet and three and a half hours later land in a state that I truly love.

My five month stay here in Mexico will be sorely missed. Other things are going to be missed for sure and cheap excellent lunches is high on that list. More important people who have become close friends. The way it is but there's Skype.

It will be an adjustment but things need done and that will keep me busy for a bit. Don't know what the year will bring and camping and exploring is in the picture. I plan on returning but too far in the future for date specifics.

I like it here so much too and think Colorado is one of the best places to live in the states it really is. Looking forward to what life brings.

May the future be good for you and me and no matter what it's gonna be a trip. I am and as so many others are as well what Chuck sings about. So many of us came from the plains seeking higher ground. It's true and this is a great day for my birthday.

Have a good one!

The Point Is This

In the last 18 months half has been spent in Mexico. During that time there has been some ups and downs but in the end all turned out pretty decent. Things do work here.

There have been quite a few friendships made both here in El Nogalito and Puerto Vallarta some of which have become pretty tight.

Reiterating what's been said before here continue to be impressed with this area and the people who live here. I have learned much. Friendly,courteous,helpful,caring and more. I am greeted by name often even in town. People smile here and a lot. I like that and there tends to be humor around as well - good humor!

To watch family's interact and especially with children and elderly is different than where I came from and just plain nice to see. Isn't it supposed to be like that? I very much like it here.

Now for the point and this is not nice nor should it be! In recent times all the good has been marred and specifics won't be explained. In that with all that I like so much the bad has to come from a piece of shit fucking gringo from the US and that's the point! It's a fact!

So I will be heading out earlier which I'm fine with as there are things that need done and time to get them out of the way. It will be a much larger adjustment than what it was when I returned here after seven months away.

I will be back but the horse's ass mentioned above won't be allowed back. You prick!
UPDATE APRIL   
 It is I who won't be going back. What the fuck do I know??? Don't think Fly and so much for friendships you thought were real tight.

A few pictures because.

Jebber And Fly

Don't think Fly but for sometime I thought there was a better than average shot of him winning the repug nomination. Lights flashing,bells going off and whistles blowing. WRONG WRONG WRONG !!! He just may be dumber than W. Missed it big time.

How about this - the dynamics changed with the New York prick and outwardly Jebber was not as vile putrid and hateful as he. Old norms has been resurrected in our country and once again it has become fashionable to be ?. Add what you want. There are too many that fit and none are good nor positive.

The odds of a monster win for the Dark Side in November is certainly in play and the Left still can't get it. So certain their intellect will be the deciding factor when stupid, racist, hateful and malice is what so many want.

This sucks on so many levels and being around since 1950 never thought we would be returning to those times of yesteryear to make Merca great again. This is more than just serious.

Oh Happy Day

Scalia is dead the piece of shit!

The debacle that lies ahead - the horror.

Stay away from it and your life will be much better served.

I do not look at this as celebrating. He's gone and I am just fine with that. Didn't ask for it but it happened.

Understanding ANN T

Living here like everywhere outside the US for the most part you meet expats from different places obviously. In the Vallarta area it is primarily Americans and Canadians with those from the north having the edge in numbers.

Local acquaintances cannot understand why Native Americans don't get with the program so to speak and integrate into society. It's not easily nor quickly explained and don't know if I even could but throw this in.

I look at this picture from Wounded Knee and to me ANN T covers a great part of it which I identify with in these times in the United States.

In those terms in solidarity with ANN T One Fly respects nothing that comes from the political Right including the religiously insane (Bart Cop term) and the gun people. Specifically that means the human part of that and this guy wants little or nothing to do with those who think like that and associate with those things.

We'll throw in the gringo prick upstairs as well who has taken away my quality of life, the ugly overweight gringos who walk around with alcohol when I have never seen a local do the same. If there is anyone who does NOT greet or respond it'll be those from north of the border. Es cierto!

Just saying.

Gestapo Joe

Tree Wells Happen And Again

I think about this and just cringe. The kicker about this for me and it's in the post and story from a day back in '08 is that even if you are with a friend who can help you can still die.

There has been a lot of snow in the high country of Colorado. I believe Da Boat got at least a 100" and understand skiing is fantastic.

I'm really sorry bud!

Death In A Tree Well

It happened again yesterday with a very experienced skier who was also an instructor. A post from almost two years ago describes what this about and just how lethal this situation can be if you screw up. It's that simple and that deadly. Two years ago two people died within 10 ten days of each other. Said it back then and saying it again-this really sucks.

Unfortunate to say the least

This is the second one in ten days. At lunch today talking about the first with a good friend and former ski patroller he related several stories he experienced with skiers who fell into tree wells. Exactly what Bill said a few hours ago happened two hours after we talked. You're alone and go in and it's head first and can't get out you are dead. Even with a partner that may not be enough as that is what happened today. His bud couldn't get him out and he didn't make it. That really sucks.

Public Lands Means They Are Yours Not Anyone Else's

And it's pretty much that simple. People along the way did us an amazing thing in that they left these lands for every American and visitor from wherever they may be from unlimited opportunity to see, explore and experience at their leisure and as much as they want and for little and mostly nothing.

Is it all wonderful - no but it works and one must participate and make their voices heard when it comes to management decision making and it does make a difference.


Anyone who has spent time out and about on these lands has run across Bundy Bastard types who threaten and intimidate people into thinking they are trespassing when of course they are not. A lease for grazing in many of these instances does NOT give ownership rights that allow them to do so.

The rational used by these Bundy Bastards is off the wall. Again it's not the gubmit's property but yours and mine and this time I very much want these people out of and off of what is mine and reprimanded for breaking numbers of laws that we would all be held accountable for.

And make no mistake about it the action taken by these Bundy Bastards is religious in nature - Mormon to be specific. LINK

The Right has it's sights on Public Lands like they do other things involving huge amounts of money they see as exploitable. "Oh there is so much a little won't be missed" or something similar is often heard from Bundy types.

I want these lands protected now and forever and you should as well for many obvious reasons all of which are correct unlike the nonsense thrown about by Bundy Bastard types where ever they may be from.

If you have never been to the West a visit may forever change you. If the election goes badly very quickly the face of the West and your lands will be forever changed in huge negative ways and that is a fact!

Happy New Year

Yup the start of another and may it be good for you and yours. The crazy's out there not so much in these times. Later these times will be discussed as history. And we've been watching to me anyway some real shitty stuff since 2000. I do not see if they are honest these times being described as positive. Plus I think the upcoming election will be the culmination of all the efforts of the Right at last.
The best -OF.

A picture - well because. Taken the same one before and just like it.

This guy was cool to see.
