303 vs 970 my 2 cents on a boring as hell 719 afternoon -
Like Mang said it is 719 that leads the pack, 970 is a close 2nd and the rangers down in 303 should be considered part of Kansas not Colorado! Denver, Ft Collins, Hugo, Limon, whatever - 303ers seriously need to look around at their peers.
As for you in Ft Collins you should belong to your closest peer group - the great sage fields and blowing wind of Wyo. A hair cut complete with the Wyo tail or mullet will ensure that you are accepted into this similar yet very different landscape. Northern Colorado = Where the men are men and the sheep are scared
We know that most of you 303ers cant hang up here for a winter you have to migrate east to the rolling plains known as the Front Range/W. Kansas. This migration can be seen every Sunday evening slowly rolling along I-70 in the summer and every Sat and Sun evening during ski season. MOOOOOOOOOO. Someone should remedy this problem by the installation of drive through liquor stores every mile or so to make the migration as painless as possible. Never been to Golden but it seems to be ruled by ego maniacs playboatin in tubes. If that is not bad enough pitt bulls are free to run and attack whoever they like (this part I like). Fun but not my cup-o-tea.
I am jealous of the 970 crowd It is not fair that you get the best ski area(s) in the state - complete with the best parks also these area(s) are chuck full of tall, blond, rich, one piece ski out fit, with a accent, tourist women. YOU SUCK ASPEN. But you also have Rifle, Silt, Delta, and dare I say Montrose, - pillars of redneck society this is why I am truly jealous.
Yes as 719ers we are lumped with all the worst kind of weirdos in the worst ranger city next to Aurora Colorado Springs. The Focus on the Family cult gives the rest of us a bad name this is why I choose to hang out with the rednecks A higher class of people up here in the 719 area code.
Here in 719 Lake Creek was runnin 200 cfs or so about day break today when I was drivin the pass - one cast and blast season just got over with another around the corner. The fishin is great, there are more ducks than ever, and deer season starts Sat. With all the great sunny afternoons the dirtbiken has been epic this year. Oh yea later this week I have to put my new M-7 snowmobile together I will probably only get in about 90 days in the BC this year.
970 is sweet and 303 is full of sweet guys
but 719 is truly a neck paradise!
