    • Safety and a Good Start

      Denver Apr 8, 2014 at 10:50 AM

      I'm moving to Denver with my best friend, from New Orleans with NO car. We are going to take advantage of the transit lines. Can anyone point me in the direction of a safe and cheap part of town walking distance of the Transit line? Thank you, and we would love to meet y'all locals!

    • September Adventure Activities for 18 & 20 year old kids & mom

      Rocky Mountain National Park Apr 10, 2014 at 1:37 PM

      Going to spend a week at a cabin in Estes Park on the river. Although I want to do a lot of hiking & taking photoes & viewing wildlife, my kids are at the age where they also want adventures. They are both very physically fit, outdoorsy & extremely adventurous. In or around Rocky Mtn Park/Estes Park do they offer activities such as off road adventures with ATVs, Jeeps or Rzrs? Maybe some zipline courses through the forest? Rafting? Any other exciting activities? Thanks

      A place to meet outside security at Denver Airport

      Denver Apr 5, 2014 at 7:59 PM

      The Official Spousal Unit is heading to Denver Airport Monday morning on American. Once there, she will meet up with a co-worker coming in from Toronto on United, who will arrive an hour or so later.

      The OSU will pick up checked luggage and wants to find a place like a food place to wait for an hour or so for her compatriot, preferably near the baggage claim and/or the Budget rental car desk.

      However, she complained to me that after looking at the Denver Airport website, she couldn't figure out what was inside security and what was outside, nor why there were six levels (that seems to be at least three more than other airports).

      I said that the Old Experienced Traveler would take a look...and heckfire if she isn't right - the Denver website is remarkably unclear about what's where. Sure, you know what level things are on, but what is airside and what is landside?

      For example, is the Jeppesen Terminal largely landside? Is the food court on Level 6 inside or outside security? It seems like it is, but many US airports have virtually all their services inside security, and the wording here is remarkably fuzzy.

      Or, to put it another way, if you had an hour to kill at 9 in the morning (or whatever) waiting for your ride to show up to go to the Budget counter, where would you wait for him nearby?

      Thanks!

    • Help in Identifying photos

      by Willie_B Online Now Feb 21, 2011 at 3:52 PM

      My family and I visited the Cripple Creek area in the late '60s, and then again in '73, '75 & '84. During these trips we took loads of photos - most are color slides. I'm 72 years old now and have begun a project to digitize our vacation trips to the West (We are Easterners). Unfortunately, one's memory seems to fade when it comes to exact names of locations, etc. I wish I had made better notes now so that I can properly denote my digitized photos. (I'm doing this for my kids who were young back then). The Cripple Creek/Victor Mining District is (was) quite an interesting and unique place to us is is evident by our many returns. Each time we came, we brought neighbors in camper carivans with us nd camped at the old Hospital.

      What I'm asking is for some limited assistance in identifying certain buildings, etc.

      1. There is one building on the right of the rooftop fire lookout building in Cripple Creek. I can see it has a name inscribed near the roofline but cannot make it out completely. Looks like "Sneall & Co 1896". Can you tell me wht it really says?

      2. There was a mining mill? on the right as one travelled from Cripple Creek towards Victor. It had a very long sloping metal roof. Seems like I remember it being Carlton, or Anaconda. Is either correct?

      3 There was an almost new structure that I have an unmarked slide of that I believe was vert near the structure in # 2 above. Do you have any idea what this my be?

      4. On my slide listings I have a listing for a "Church of Christ Scientist" building in Victor. None of my slides have this marking, but I believe it to be a building I have pictured that looks like it was intended to look "Greek" with several large colums in front. Is this it?

      5. One trip we took a mine tour down into a mine that I have marked as the "Molly Kathleen". I can't seem to find it listed now. Has this mine changed names, or was I wrong with the name?

      When I am through, I would be happy to share my digitized photos with you either over the internet or on a CD/DVD. They are turning out to be fairly good photos to be from color slides and negatives that are over 30 years old.

      Again, Thanks for any help you might give.
