Motto: “People Create the Quality of Their Government – Through Participation or Neglect” 1. Take a risk at Lakeside Amusement Park The family owned amusement park, home to Cyclone Coaster, Wild Chipmunk Coaster, Zoom Drop Tower is the cheaper alternative to Elitch’s, with notoriously older, bumpier, and fun-ner rides.

Lakeside has been in operation since 1908, and generations of Coloradans have been coming ever since. 2. Go antiquing at the Brass Armadillo With... Read More

Colorado Visitors Surprised by Wild Wedding Guest

May 24th, 2019

A couple from Illinois visited Rocky Mountain National Park this week to get married and were startled when a moose came into view in their snowy May background. The couple made several attempts to take pictures and say their vows, but the stubborn guest continued to meander closer and closer. The couple said that they had never seen a moose before, and their photographer noted that the couple was terrified; she kept trying to get them to pay attention to their pictures, but they were in awe of the wildlife. The surprise guest and late spring snowstorm led to some stunning wedding pictures for... Read More

Gender Equality Mechanics–Bikes Together

May 21st, 2019

Bikes are a splendid example of a thing that unites a community and offers a network of caring and support. Cities that plan and build for bicycle transit have a higher quality of life. People that ride bikes are happier than those that don’t. Bikes are the closest thing we can get to human-powered flight. This last statement is subjective, but I stand by it. Bikes are not God per se, but they are goddamned fun! This premise might come across as a bit hokey; clearly, bikes are not omniscient deities. But I really do believe in the power of bikes to do really important things in the world. For... Read More

3 Colorado CannaFitness Getaways

May 11th, 2019

It’s nice to get away. We all need a good recharge, away from the complexities of modern life. We’re spending more time inside than any other period in history, and we almost continuously have our eyes glued to a screen. These are just a couple reasons some doctors are starting to prescribe nature to improve overall health. Unplugging from electronics and taking time outdoors is shown to have several health benefits. If you’re reading this column, chances are you already know a bit about the benefits of cannabis for fitness, so wouldn’t it make sense to combine nature with more nature?... Read More

Cannabis consumers are typically portrayed as lazy, and have had the couch locked stigma association in mainstream media over the years.

In the Pursuit of Home

December 20th, 2018

Four hours ago, I blew a fuse on my inverter. Four hours and twenty minutes ago, I didn’t even know what an inverter was or that half the plugs in my Airstream were powered by an inverter, which is monumentally different (and altogether far less powerful) than those plugs that are grounded. Learning. Don’t plug a space heater into an inverter circuit. If you’re worried about my lack of electric plugs at this point in the story, don’t be. My grounded plugs are still working and my Airstream itself has power (praise God because it’s a whopping seven degrees outside). The major concern here... Read More
