Living and working in Tollgate, I get a TON of people who say they want to live simply and without debt.  Tiny homes seem to be a go to option for people these days…however how do you do it?  I have collected a ton of stuff over the course of my life and don’t know where you put it in a tiny home.  The Mr jokes often about going into the business of Tiny Home additions.  This cracks me up.  Here is a great article from FB that answered a few of my qs on actually doing this.  click HERE to read.

Pats vs Broncos

Pats vs Broncos

 

One of my favorite places on my trip has been….Breckenridge Colorado.  This cool town is a great place to live and ski.  It is very close to Keystone, A-Basin and Breckenridge ski resorts and has several others close by.  Downtown Johnny D and I were able to take in a Pats/Broncos game at the local sports pub…Ollie’s.  Here we found the highest concentration of Broncos fans.  It was fun to be there cheering for the Pats.  Unfortunately we left before Tom Brady could turn the game around for the win.  Great game!

Park City is experiencing the same road difficulties we deal with in Tollgate Canyon. Pay tax money and get no services.  Not that I am saying Pine Meadows Ranch does not do a good job with the HOA’s money, but when you pay money to the county and they do not help…..

The same day I was at the meeting for the ‘dogs off leash on the trail issue’.  My sassy, sexy friend Amy T was taking note to try and get some assistance with their community roads.  Phil has now started a petition to require the repair of the roads that the government has been taxing them for.  Makes sense to me.  GO GET ‘EM PHIL!  Below is a link to the article in the Park Record.

Dogs, dog owners and mean nasty smelly douche-bag dog haters (with guns) are up in arms about dogs off leash on trails in Park City.  Summit county has a leash law, however Park City has been a dog friendly town for years.  With the influx of people we are all feeling the heat on this issue.  A Summit County Council meeting to discuss the county leash laws is scheduled Wednesday, April 17 at 1:35 p.m. at the Sheldon Richins Building, located at 1885 West Ute Boulevard.

As the parent of two well trained active Weimaraner biking dogs, you can guess this is an upsetting topic for me.  I can understand that some people have a real fear of these animals and you ALWAYS need to exercise caution when approaching any animal…cat, dog, fish, monkey, bear  I have been bit by many things, nothing serious and all my fault.  HOWEVER…..some animals need to run.

When you are on a trail you give the horse the right of way and respect others on the trail.  As a dog owner I feel it is my responsibility to make my animals model citizens and unfortunately other owners are more lax about this.  I repeatedly have other trail users compliment my animals behavior-and this is no accident.   And any bad behavior has been when I encounter a lax owner.

please don’t take our trail privileges away……

I think that it is really sad that our town has grown so much that this decision is being made due to the two complete opposite groups in the minority that can’t respect others.    And by respect others I mean train their animals or grow a pair and deal with your fears.    One woman was threatened by a man to pull a gun and shoot her dog this winter.  Be nice people…

TO THE HATERS…Keep in mind that an dog on a leash is sometimes more dangerous than one off.  AND you moved to a dog friendly town illustrated by the  book called “dogs on main st” and the fact that is was once referred to as BARK CITY at what point did you think that would stop when you moved your pansy ass from the city.

Interested in heading down to the meeting tomorrow at 1?  Kurbi and I may be going.

This winter I picked up a GoPro camera for videos for my BLOG.  I was excited to get going and immediately tried to get it working with the recommended update.  I fried the SD card and the camera.  WOW.  How difficult can this be?  As it turns out pretty difficult, the camera is still un updated and sitting in a bag.  I am waiting for a computer savvy friend to help me and bike season.  Sorry about the ski videos my friends.  My good old iphone took this shot.
