    • 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!

      In 1969 I graduated from Colorado Alpine College, Stmbt. I worked at a restaurant which was then called The Gallery. They used to have 2x4's lined with plaques with customers mugs hanging fron them. I was one of the original 'Mug Hangers'and would like to know if they still exist? I don'tknow what the restaurant, if it still exsists, would be called now. Hopefully, someone could help me find the answers. I knew Skeeter & Rusty Warner, Sandy Swinehart(sp) and a Bill Gilbert who used to live there, if that's any help.
      Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

    • Where to stay....

      by September9th Online Now Dec 6, 2006 at 9:56 AM

      Four guys, late 20's, looking for a cool spot to lay our heads at night. We aren't looking for the Ritz Carlton, nor are we looking for a motel. We are thinking either a nice hotel or a condo. We want to do this trip right and by that I mean, a nice place, very convienent to slopes, and walking distance to bars. We would prefer a location with a younger crowd. Any and all recomendations are greatly appreciated. Thanks

    • Place to Stay

      Hello,

      My family and I were planning a trip to Steamboat Springs on February 24, and returning on February 27. We live in Fort Collins Colorado. We were wondering if you happen to know of anyone who has a vacation home or a condo and who is willing to make some extra money, by allowing us to stay that weekend.

      Thanks for at least checking into it. You can reach me through e-mail or you can call me at 970-490-3054.
      Thank you

    • Skiing Steamboat in late March

      by conniefromnc Online Now Jan 14, 2006 at 4:29 PM

      I would like a local's opinion on the ski conditions in late March. We usually ski (and fall a lot) in the NC or VA mountains (which I understand is nothing compared to skiing in CO). I am considering booking a ski trip the last week in March, but am concerned that I may arrive and find there will be very few slopes open (specifically the beginner and intermediate). I've looked at the typical temperatures and snow amounts and it doesn't appear its likely, but I'm not sure I am interpreting the difference between "good" and "great" conditions (they may all seem great to me coming from NC where I ski all weekend on two runs that take about 30 seconds to get down). Please provide some advise if you don't mind. Thanks

    • Shuttle Service

      by massiekj Online Now Dec 21, 2004 at 6:28 PM

      Hi. My ten year old and I fly into Hayden on January 12th. We'll need a shuttle to BW Ptarmigan Inn. Alpine Taxi is usually recommended, but on the return to the airport Monday morning, they want to pick us up at 5:30 AM for an 8:20 AM flight. Seems kind of early. Storm Mountain will pick us up about 6:15 AM. My question is twofold: Is 6:15 AM from BW Ptarmigan enough time? And is Storm Mountain a good shuttle choice? Thanks!!! keith
