Did Belford & Oxford Sat. Pretty windy. Got back to Belford around 10:30 still not a cloud in the ski and no wind. Decided to take Missouri too. Still no clouds. Best weather I've ever seen in the high country. Long day but one of the most rewarding.

Saturday was great! Hiked up La Plata. Going to meet some friends to do the tour d massive today, so I camped on halfmoon road. I was woken up by something under my car. It was up in the engine. After poking around with a stick it took off. I woke up to drive to the TH, turned the key and nothing happened!! I'm assuming that little $@&* chewed something!!! :evil: So, I had to have my vehicle towed all the way to Boulder....thank god for AAA!

It was hell. I hate garage sales. Made $71 Saturday. Made $20 Sunday. Didn't sell nearly as much stuff as we wanted. So, between what my wife sold and what I sold, I came out of it with $5 :x

Saturday was a gorgeous day and I couldn't help but think about being out climbing while I sat in my driveway reading all day....oh well.

Damn Boulder hippies won't let me climb Arikaree or Kiowa. But I got them back - I peed in their precious water. :twisted:
