We’re Back!

The move is over and we’re finally getting settled into our new place in Leadville, Colorado.  While we arrived about two weeks ago, we’ve been furiously cleaning, unpacking, and I’ve even started my new job.   The transition was eerily much easier than I could have ever imaged.  Our house in Montana sold in 1.5 days and similar doors and hurtles have all been crossed exactly as needed.  We don’t know why, but we’re pretty sure this is exactly where we are supposed to be right now.

 

Apart from my new job (which is very cool) I’m most looking forward to the nearby proximity to everything outdoors.  We’ve got season passes to Breckinridge, Keystone, and Arapahoe Basin.  Dozens of miles of groomed cross country ski trails surround our home.  I can look out of just about any window in any building and see several of the highest peaks in the nation.  The two highest in Colorado (Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive) are literally across the valley.  Ice climbing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, mountaineering… This is a winter sports fanatic’s Holy Land.

 

We’d like to thank you for sticking with us through September and the big transition.  As the blog comes back to life I’ll be working on setting up several more give-away’s.   We’ve got several amazing adventures to share from the past couple months, and are thrilled at all the new adventures that await us in Colorado.   We’ll be hitting the slopes hard, but also desperately trying to find creative new ways to stay in shape for our summer adventures.  Treadmills?  Spin Classes (not sure those exist here.)?  We do have a great swimming pool, but as far as we can see, that’s about it.

New Adventures — And FREE STUFF

Thanks again for sticking with us through September while we moved to Colorado.  I’m working hard on setting up a sweet November give-away contest.   Any requests????  Also, I wanted to let everyone in on one of the next big adventures we have planned.

This spring or summer, Veronica and I have been planning for several months now to take a foreign travel adventure.  At first we were thinking about a European bike/train tour, but the more we started reading, the more we started falling in love with the idea of a Bike/Train Tour in Ireland and Scotland.  We’ll spend at least two full weeks traveling by train and bike around as much of the two countries as possible.   Flat tires, rough country roads, and lots and lots of rain will surely be encountered; as will colorful locals, incredible castles, and breathtaking scenery.

We hope you’ll stick with us, and enjoy what is to come.  As always, if you have any adventures you’d like to share, we’d LOVE to have you write a guest post.  Just shoot us an e-mail at OurEverydayAdventures@gmail.com
