    Been Jeeping in Ouray and Telluride

    Oh, it was! There were a number of times when I just closed my eyes and leaned to the side opposite of the abyss (like leaning would actually make a difference, lol). It's definitely a white-knuckle ride. Some spots are quite narrow, and the wheels are about 1 1/2 feet from the edge. What makes it even more challenging is when Jeeps are coming from the opposite direction. There are frequent spots which are wide enough to allow them to squeeze by as you come within inches of touching rearview mirrors. Sometimes, you have to back up to get to these spots. Some Jeeps have axles that are independent, and they can climb the wall and sit sideways as you pass. The temperatures have been great. Between short-sleeve and long-sleeve weather. The temp. changes have not been all that extreme.

    Back in Ouray at our trip headquarters. (Too much sun for my phone's camera.)

    Into Telluride after the descent.

    There are several dilapidated gold and silver mines throughout this area. Constructed and operated before motor vehicles, it is amazing to see the lengths to which people would go to get gold. Unimaginable!

    We made it to the summit.

    Somebody went down for a bad tumble. I think it happened this morning. The occupants were taken out by helicopter. I don't know how bad they were hurt, but it doesn't look good. Hopefully, they will be fine.

    That rocky ridge was big, but that's just a small piece of a much larger mountain. See that mountain in the background? We've been going up, over the top, and back down the other side of stuff like that.

    The last few days, I've literally been at the top of the world. My friends and I took off on a road trip to Ouray, Colorado. They have a Jeep, and we've been going over the highest, most-treacherous mountain passes. I got out and walked up front to get a picture of our ascent. See that rocky ridge behind us?

    Exactly! If you have a few tons of meat, you better be ready. On the other hand, if you don't, you are free to evacuate and go somewhere which is not affected.

    Hurricane Florence 2018

    Other way around. When you see a news reporter in a canoe pretending there's a massive flood as people walk by only ankle deep, that's indeed fake news, and regardless of party affiliation or preference, it should be called-out. Until people hold reporters accountable, they will keep right on playing this game.

    An Aspirin a Day might not be Okay

    That does sound like a good point now that you've repeated it. +1 to the use of other NSAIDs.

    Weak. You could not have been triggered by that. Looks like an attempt to get even.

    Accumulating $1,000's - or even $100's - of meat in a freezer is a liability. Want to see where I store my meat for free until I need it?

    An Aspirin a Day might not be Okay

    It's probably implied by the fact that the median age of the group members was 74, and no members had any history of heart disease.

    An Aspirin a Day might not be Okay

    That's exactly how I feel. It isn't "logical," statistically, I suppose, but there it is. Not rational.
