Hey Porkchop! Weekend Warrior is pretty accurate so far . . .
13 or 14 days was about about what I've been able to get in this year (little putt-putt place north of town here).
Out west I would (ideally) be aiming at arriving on a Saturday or Sunday and putting in four or five days each trip and (I hope) missing the worst of the crowds.
Monarch seems to come up repeatedly here, and I'm happy to deal with the relative isolation and time it would take to get there, since I've got a ways to go anyway. Any thoughts on Loveland? I was scoping it out online last night, and it looks big, cheap and convenient, though driving in and out each day would be a minor hassle.
Not looking for a scene per. se. As far as skills, I'm mostly corduroy so far, but looking to move on and learn from there.
