First week in Colorado
August 2nd, 2011
Wow- what a crazy week! We arrived in Fort Collins, CO on Sunday night of last week and in one weeks time we. . .
After being on the road for two straight weeks, we were pretty eager to find a place to live so on Monday, we arranged something like 7 showings on the hour every hour for the whole day. Two we liked and the one we got allowed us to move in on Wednesday.
Learned that arriving with all of our stuff in a pickup truck leaves a pretty lonely looking apartment.
To remedy that, we figured out that a little bit of money can buy a lot of really good stuff if you know where to look (Craig’s list, Target, thrift stores, antique stores, and garage sales- in order of preference).
Learned that lotion and hydration is super important and the sun shines here just about all day everyday and if it rains there is often a rainbow.
Figured out that you can get just about anywhere in the city on one of the paved bike paths and biking 14 miles in an hour at a comfortable sight-seeing pace is no big deal.
Now know to watch the sun set to the West every night because the sunsets here over the mountains are truly spectacular.
Went to the Cheyenne Frontier Days on Sunday to see what all of the fuss was about- we agree, the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo probably is the “daddy of em all”. For our first ever rodeo experience, we had a lot of fun. =)
