Is it just me....

Or is the forecast for the next week really tempting me to remove top and doors.

I think I'll pass on that. At 8500 feet we'll maybe see low 40's. Might be warm enough in July but only in the middle of the day

Pueblo is suppose to be mid- 70's! Pretty tempting to just spend the day down there...

I've done that a few times when I've totally had it with freaking winter. Get on 25 and start heading south till it warms up. Ended up in Carlsbad once...

Yeah, it was really cool. The one I'd really like to see is the one they won't let anyone in. Have a book about it and the pictures are mind blowing.

Sometime I'd like to check out the caves up on the Rampart. They are all totally wild.

I can only imagine how crazy those caves get if you're lucky enough to explore.

Fulford cave up by Eagle is a nice cave, Groaning cave by Dotsero is fantastic but you need to be a member of Colorado Grotto to get into it.

My top has been off for about a month and a half...

...not my DD though so it stays warm in the garage until days like today and tomorrow. All it does is give you early spring fever lol.

Didn't know there were caves up Rampart. With Cave of the winds it isn't too surprising. Did a summer trip to Missouri, where I think every resident has a cave or two.

My top has been off since last spring, before I went to Moab. Now...I haven't driven it recently, and starting to get restless.

It's the limestone beds in the Midwest that produce all the caves there. It really surprised me that there were caves around here, it's all granite as far as I know. Cave of the Winds is a lot more extensive than what is in the tours. I guess they have trips that go into the wild part of the cave. Really don't know much about the caves up here. The local kids seem to be the experts. One guy I met up here will actually go in exploring for a couple days at a time.

I've been on the "lantern tour" in the caves. They take you much further back than the normal tour shows. It's pretty cool. And you hit your head a lot lol. But I don't know about how "wild" it is. They tell you in this one part about how some lady actually believes she saw a ghost or something and ran out of the cave screaming the whole way about how haunted it was and they offered her free tours and stuff and she still won't go back to the place. Lol i looked in the hole and it's just fine.

You have to go way back to get to the wild part. Wild means you're crawling on your belly not walking

Did some research last night on caves in the area. There are something like sixty known caves in Williams canyon, most of them gated and locked. Gotta be certified or something just to get in. Gotta check with some of the local kids up here, they are the ones who really know what's what up on the Rampart.

As far as ghosts go this whole are is bad news, a lot of old indian spirits. I've been thrown half way across my house and so has my wife by something "just passing through". I was wondering if I had lost more screws than I thought but I was talking to a friend who lives not too far from me and she's been tossed like three times. Go figure...

WHAT? No way? Seriously? Like for real you actually got thrown? Id love to hear everything about it? That's crazy. I've always been a skeptic. Never actually know anyone who experienced anything.
I would be down to go exploring some caves too

The barn in black forest (if it's still standing) justin, supposably it's super haunted. I didn't see anything spooky when I went. But I'm sure we could use ghost boy ed to make them come out

If you all seriously want to meet some spooks up close and personal I think I can arrange that. A friend of mine is a serious paranormal investigator and I can probably arrange a late night tour of the Cripple Creek Museum. In the 1800's it was the city jail Stories I've heard make me not inclined to go anywhere near the place but in the interest of scaring the shit out of you all I'm game Let me know and if there is enough interest I'll try to set something up
