camping with the matts

Filed under: climbing, fire, Mountains, vacation — mgcg @ 1:28 pm

a few weeks back the bates came back to CO.  cate and i went down to the springs for suzy’s surprise bday party and we had a good time seeing them.  we miss them.  of course, during their stint here, matt HAD to go camping.  so i obliged.  ;p

matty b’s site:

matty g’s site:

time to get a fire going.  found a great fire ring someone put some time/effort into.

now, off to search for boulders to climb.

didn’t have to walk far to see some, but most were unclimbable due to lack of holds or chossy crumbling mess.

we did find a couple that we could flail up!

pretty teeny plants to greet you at the top:

matt also showed off his tree climbing prowess.  you can see why we get along so well.

back to camp to cook some grub and chat and go to bed before dark.  🙂

miss you already, matt.

so, i have lots of pics that have no home and have been stuck on the camera.  so, enjoy these from the past not sure how many weeks.

ikea bed frames = 2 singles or a king!

vail and cate doing what she does so well.

the caulkins’s (one of the founders of vail) front door.  🙂

dryer repair.  busted heating element.  thanks jim!

we ventured to estes park (first time ever) to see what it was like.  just so happens a snow storm blew in.  felt like i was back living at UTR!  as we came into town there was a gathering of people off the side of the road.  then we saw dogs.  BIG dogs.  and sleds.  and you can figure out the rest.

haha…now if only that temp was right, then it would feel like gunnison.  however, my temp sensor has been screwy for months.  it was probably about 10˚f.  🙂

the only pic we took in town was this silly reminder of home.  so tourist-y.

molly is a smart one.  durn blurry!

presenting!  the always willing to help, and ask a billion questions, noah!  aaron’s cool too.

this past weekend’s project.  well, one of them.

removed the edging.  hello scrap money!

cate.  master painter.

it’s like a burn pile, only smaller and more in the city.

installed!

taking advantage of the burn pile coals, cate, amazing me once more, improvises and makes some fish and veggies hobo-pak style.  YEAH!  that’s the old crawlspace hatch frame burning.  heh

the office is taking shape.  closet primer NO wallpaper!
