leave no trace, camping and 2 more...

As we head into the heart of summer many of us will be venturing out to campgrounds and backcountry destinations. I'm confident that our community (and your friends and their friends) is well-practiced and well-versed in Leave No Trace Ethics.
And it's because you're already applying these best practices that I both encourage and challenge you to d...

Trail Kitchen - What do you bring?

Posted by ProTrails in ProTrails Blog, 07 March 2015 · 1,418 views

Hey everyone - happy almost Spring Forward! 
As we prepare here for the upcoming season, we like to go out and buy some food in bulk for the inevitable long days on the trail. Tastes evolve as do body needs so over the years, the food in our ProTrails backpacks have changed. 
We've shifted to a more whole foods diet on the trail -...


a more comprehensive update

Posted by waterrat in waterrat's Blog, 24 February 2015 · 1,283 views

Most forum communities I'm a part of I tend to stay for a season, move on and come back as the mood and time fit.  I never intend for RMNP to be one of those, though.  I draw a certain level of sanity, peace, and just the ability to breathe without stress for a moment or two in looking at the photos, even when I don't comment.  Especially i...


Long time, no blog... (have I used that title already?)

Posted by podunkboy in In Podunk There Lived a Boy, 29 May 2014 · 975 views

I've popped in on occasion to look around but somehow never got around to posting an update...for 2 years. (I'm ashamed.)
First off, GOOD NEWS, in July 2012, I accepted a position with the competitor of my old employer, doing similar work on 3rd shift/weekends. Pay is good, social life took a hit. Now, almost two years later, we're undergoing a com...


Time for a Return to Rocky ....

Posted by Gojhawks in Gojhawks' Blog, 22 May 2014 · 1,235 views

If all goes as planned, less than 48 hours from now I will be breathing in the air of Rocky Mountain National Park. This will be my first visit since Fall 2011.  For "normal" people that is not too long, but for us confirmed RMNP addicts, that is much, much too long.  My wife Amy and I will be flying into Denver Saturday afternoon and flying out...


I have THREE families!

Posted by foxfire in foxfire's Blog, 10 February 2014 · 1,577 views

I have THREE families! I want to share this story with my Forums family.

A miracle happened to me in the summer of 2012. I found my birth family at the age of 61. I was told at an early age that I was adopted. My adoptive father was a Hy-Vee manager and my mother a housewife. We moved with Hy-Vee transfers to several locations in Iowa, then settled in Clarinda when I was 10. I...


Reflections of Time and Floods

floods, big thompson, lyons

I won't post pictures as most have seen some variation, but to reflect and compare.
In 76, I had just graduated from High School and was working for the town.   I spent the summer working getting saving money for college and was looking forward to a new adventure.  The 76 flood was devestating but was somewhat limited to the Estes Va...


The Case of the Missing Teeth

Posted by hector in Hector's Blog, 23 May 2013 · 1,155 views

The Case of the Missing Teeth First, I haven't been to the blogs in a LONG time, and I have so much to catch up on! So I'll start here. Samantha has been losing teeth left and right.

First it was this tooth, out after biting on a sucker. She had 30 minutes to pull it before we went to swimming lessons:


Spring Has Sprung

Posted by B-Jay in B-Jay's Blog, 02 May 2013 · 942 views

It looks like spring is finally here.  It is surprising to see how quickly things are changing .  I guess all the downpours we got in April have really helped to make this a colorful time in early May.  I couldn't help but go out to take a few pictures and enjoy the nice weather.  I figured I'd better do it quickly before Marsha sends...


Advanced Primer on Dog Showing

Posted by Scrapinator in Scrapinator's Ramblings, 13 April 2013 · 926 views

I promised in the last blog that when Pippin got points I would explain the point system.  Well, today, Pippin went Winners Dog and got 1 point toward the 15 required to be a Champion.  Last blog I talked about Winners Dogs and Reserve Winners Dogs, Best of Winners, Best of Opposite Sex and Best in Breed or Variety.  Points are based on number of dogs...


"Dallas Blooms" at the Arboretum

Posted by Rhonda in Rhonda's Blog, 08 April 2013 · 1,488 views

On the Monday after Easter, April 1st, two friends and I went to the Dallas Arboretum to see the last of the "Dallas Blooms" Festival, which is mostly tulips, azaleas and Japanese Cherry Blossoms.

We were like kids at Disney World, it was fantastic.  It was a warm and sunny day, no wind, and it couldn't have been any more perfect.

We walked...

Stomp Disappointment

Posted by mwilson in mwilson's Blog, 19 February 2013 · 1,092 views

For a few weeks now I have wondered about the wisdom of venturing west for this year's Stomp. It is so much fun and there are so many great people that are part of the Forum and every gathering is special. At the last minute, and I do mean the last minute, I finally realized that I was being foolish and we changed our plans.

Let's just say the...


The Scrapyard

Posted by zzcoop in Coop Bloggy Blogg, 06 January 2013 · 1,276 views

Hey, gang!

I know I've been pretty lazy lately, forums-wise, but believe me… it hasn't been for a lack of trying! Figured now was as good a time as any to update the ol' Bloggy Blogg with a few recent pics from my neck of the weeds. I went out shooting on New Year's Day, in hopes of capturing a tremendous sunset with all of...


Here's Hoping You Get That Puppy

  Posted by Bill 007 in Bill 007 - Junk Mail, 24 December 2012 · 987 views

It's been a long time since I felt like writing anything.
Typically at Christmas I like to get all creative and knock out a piece of nonsensical blabber....not so much this time.
Probably the Mayan end of the world thing.
I guess this year I'll just let it slide.
We went to our son's churches Christmas Eve services tonite. No small feat by the...


My Daughter's Wedding

Posted by John in John's Blog, 28 September 2012 · 905 views

I'm getting ready to go to the rehearsal dinner. Tomorrow, my daughter gets married. She is our oldest (we have a 17 year old son). At birth, I held her before my wife did. I changed her first messy diaper. (I didn't hold both of her legs right, and she stuck her heel in the poo poo.)  I took her to her first day of preschool.  I helped her invite...


Good News II

Posted by Marvman in Marvman's Blah Blah Blahg, 27 September 2012 · 1,197 views

Past history would indicate that we should NOT have things going our way for this amount of time. Since my earlier "Good News" post in June, we have had a number of positive things happening to us. At the risk of "jinxing" it all, I will share more of this good news.

We closed on the new house on the 23rd of July. Had the kitchen and...

Just in case you missed it.... My last bit of 'media' work for Denali this week has broken all "Likes" and "Shares" records for a single photo posted on Facebook by Denali. The media team has a little unspoken competition to see who can get the most attention to their posts.... My baby bear cubs pictures have broken all previous records. Today's picture is...
