Welcome to Denver! What are your hobbies? Meetup.com has plenty of groups with a wide range of interest/activities. I found a group to play soccer with using it when I first moved to Denver.
What's wild about this whole story is how it got blown out of proportion.
Marvin Heemeyer purchased his muffler shop which did not have a working toilet in it. The city ignored this for almost a decade, until he got mad about the concrete batch plant that was being built across the street. It never blocked his access, and any person with two braincells to rub together would be able to figure out that a lawyer would have been able to EASILY sue the plant owners of they blocked a right of way. Anyways, so Heemeyer made a stink about the plant and started a campaign to halt to batch plant's construction, implicating some city council people in that process as being corrupt. The city turned around and hit Heemeyer with the lack of sewage citation, but still gave him a large amount of time to rectify the problem. Meanwhile Heemeyer leveraged a lawsuit against the concrete business, which in turn offered to settle with him and pay for his sewer hookup and help pave his property. Heemeyer instead skld the property for a huge proft, built his tank and went on his rampage which ended only with his death.
So never forget that small business owners are insane, I guess.
Just like how effective car alarms are?
Instead I suggest pepper spray. I carry this: SABRE RED Pepper Spray Keychain with Quick Release for Easy Access – Max Police Strength OC Spray, Finger Grip for Accurate Aim, 10-Foot (3M) Range https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KFPM619/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_53RSKW2333XDHPG6TWPX?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
No idea. Maine and Oregon have similar legislation to that passed in Colorado. There are apps you can get on your phone now for payday lending at much less predatory rates though. So I assume you lower overhead by going digital and the dinosaurs who are scum die off.
Wish I could upvote this more than once!
For those of you who didn't know, DPL is partnered with OverDrive, another excellent source of free ebooks and audiobooks. They've also designed a mobile app by the name of Libby , which is perfect for knocking out a few chapters during lunch break or commute.
I recently watched a former CIA investigator give a lecture about how to tell when someone is lying. One of the indicators that they stressed was inappropriate demeanor -- as in, smiling when answering a question about something bad. Also, shifting from an "anchor" point (shifting on feet), and other bodily reactions within a few seconds of a question or answer... Watching his interview, it was all right there. You can watch the lecture here (accompanying slides are here). What happened to this poor woman and those innocent children is horrific.
the yampa valley singers is a volunteer choir based in steamboat... maybe you could contact them and see if any of their members would be interested.
Check out c38sg.com. We run busses from the Celtic in downtown for every match with free beer for $12, have a all you can eat (and drink) tailgate starting 3 hours before every kickoff for $10 and tickets to the match as low as $25. Tickets can be bought here. https://www.tickettailor.com/events/centennial38
This is the link to the position, correct?
This does not look like an entry-level role, and a base salary around $100k does not sound unreasonable for a fairly independent-sounding coordinator role requiring a few years' prior experience at a tech company including travel expectations.
>What you should have
>2-3 years of recruiting experience, university / campus experience preferred but not required
>Familiarity with building and engaging with diverse student pipelines
>Passionate about the candidate experience and building inclusive programs
>Willing to potentially travel (when safe to do so), predominantly domestic
>Ability to prioritize, flex, and work in a fast paced, constantly evolving environment
>Detail oriented, ability to multi-task and comfortable using data to drive decision making
I think you've gotten worked-up for no reason.
Go by any autozone/car shop and they'll have these. Stash it up under the bumper or wheel well. Tell your buddy where to find it. Should be fine for a few hours.
Alternatively go to airport lost and found and say you found the key and have your friend know what identifying feature is on the key chain. "it's a subaru key with a blucifer minature" etc.
Nextdoor had a post about a toy aussie on colorado bvld
That's only 12 days away and the forecasts aren't looking promising so I feel safe betting we'll hit that record as well.
Here's a 10-day forecast (we'll see soon what the extra 2 days will show)
Wondering aloud if we can’t use this as an opportunity....
My initial thought is ‘this keeps happening, how do we solve this problem? Is it lack of awareness, lack of good signage, or something else?’
I doubt that this wasn’t done intentionally to inconvenience bicyclists.
What if we were able to run a test and perhaps try different signage/markings?
I’m thinking a car with a big red slash in it on these spots where the parking is offset from the curb. Something like https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/circle-prohibited-sign-no-car-parking-262905011?src=say5guRKKALuqlls60nnww-1-2
In the real parking spots, we can use a similar iconography, except in green
How hard would it be to try this out for the summer months? Pick one or two streets that have the most offenders, try it, if it works, expand it.
Anyone have a contact at The City or with Bike Denver? DM me and I’ll reach out to them.
And, sorry for the lame Shutterstock link, I’m on mobile. :)
Losing weight is more about changing your diet than exercising. Of course, exercise helps, but you MUST get your diet in line. Go download My Fitness Pal and start tracking your calories.
If you don't like cardio (I hate it), go lift instead. Get the book "Starting Strength" and hit the weights 3 times a week. If you do that, while keeping your calories in line, you will lose weight with no trouble at all.
Hit up /r/fitness and /r/progresspics to get some good info and inspiration. Best of luck!!

No, because the actual cost is a fraction of a penny. You can buy 1000 bags on Amazon for around $30. Or $0.003 per bag. https://www.amazon.com/TashiBox-Shopping-Reusable-Disposable-Grocery/dp/B07KWX88NB/ And I'm sure stores buying them in bulk are spending a lot less than that. The fee they will charge isn't the cost of the bag, but a small tax. Or maybe it's a 10,000% tax if you think if it relative to the cost of the bag (assuming they cost around $0.001)
Two years ago Denver recorded its first triple digit day in September in 150 years of record keeping. Before that day the record was 97, which had been recorded five times.
Last year it was 99 on both Sept 5th and 6th.
It was 97 degrees yesterday and 96 today.
Summers really are becoming hotter, drier, and longer and this is only the beginning.
Almost anywhere, having a single drink and then using a firearm, even in self-defense is considered illegal.
Using pepper defenses is not illegal. And you shouldn’t have to hesitate and think about it but that’s the truth￼￼￼.

The bear was actually spotted in Littleton, Englewood and then finally caught in Denver! A few of my neighbors got some footage of the bear in their yards and uploaded to NextDoor.
Bear Spotted in Progress Park Area
Preeety sure that's a gag advertisement on 93.3 FM. Heard it the other day while driving home.
Edit: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/182-LOLs-at-505-27181517/episode/lol-satanic-gardens-29249089/ does this sound like what you heard?
This is what I think of every time I hear the words, "Highlands Ranch". Playing the Elfman score in my head helps keep my mood up when driving through the sprawling dystopia...I mean neighborhood.
Nope, had some anxiety (because of heart palpitations) and doctor suggested talking to a psychologist and oh hey we have one right here. Garden variety behavioral therapy.
No one mentioned it was $1000 an hour until I got a bill 2 months later.
The only memorable thing I got out of it was a recommendation for a book: https://www.amazon.com/Feeling-Good-New-Mood-Therapy/dp/0380810336 which appears to be the beginner's guide to do-it-yourself cognitive behavior therapy.
'Timelapser' here! I produced a time-lapse video last year: A Day in Denver. I have another video coming out very soon for the One Day on Earth campaign and am thinking of starting another video!
>And what do they define as "pending Criminal charge"?
I'd like to know this as well. There was a story yesterday on CPR about an undocumented teenager that was detained and had charges pending. Basically, the judge dismissed the case because it was "here say upon here say". It sounded as if ICE and local law enforcement just wanted to make sure there was some type of criminal charge on record when they picked him up.
It really makes me wonder about the veracity of these "criminal" claims. We know that they have been directly asked to gin up the numbers in the past. It isn't a secret...
Here is the story: https://www.npr.org/2017/08/17/544081085/teens-in-u-s-illegally-say-theyre-falsely-accused-of-being-in-a-gang
I found additional details about this position in the KKK.
Ah! The bank Lofts. I used to live there too. Just left a comment about it a second ago.
About 15 years ago there was a suicide there. Someone went to the top floor and leapt into the center atrium. The individual impacted the edge of the glass roof, flipped backwards, and was decapitated at a window edge. The body remained in the atrium but the head traveled into the first floor hallway.
I believe my apartment was 707, facing the parking garage. I looked down on the roof of it and could see what was the Quest tower at the time.
Edit: I found the pictures of the aftermath on my computer. It looks like I took them sometime around Nov ~~1999~~ 1998, about ~~14~~ 15 years ago. The photos were taken with an old Kodak APS camera and scanned in a few years later. The elevators are to the right in the picture, near the impact. Due to the poor quality of my camera and scanner, the images are a bit blurry. Nonetheless, they are NSFW. Here's a link to the imgur album.
Edit: I did some searching and I found the story in the Westword archives. The incident occurred on 9 Nov 1998. I had my picture album mislabeled by a year. The article didn't mention a decapitation — I guess I assumed as much given that I couldn't see the head, the blood mark on the sill, and the copious amounts of tissue in the hallway. Sad stuff. :(
Edit: Anyways, aside from that morbidity, I love Denver and have very fond memories of living downtown. :)
I’ve got 4 of these for $20 and they’ve lasted me 6 years of weekly groceries. Standing up to some decent abuse too when I used to bike to the store and they’d get caught in the spokes all the time.
I feel similar to you. I'm 38 and my partner broke up with me after ten years a month ago. I'm doing my best to get out, go to bars (I don't drink), coffee shops, meetup.com events, art shows, hanging with friends. I'm eating right and exercising, lost 20lbs and am in better shape than I was at 20. I've given up on dating apps until I can get better photos and I sit down and write a good profile. It's super hard for me not to get discouraged, but If I don't try and get out there and make a new life for myself I might as well go out in the woods and shoot myself. Get busy living or get busy dying. Good luck bro!
Red license. It sounds like he's on probation and only gets to drive to/from work. A cop is definitely going to question him extra.
Try waze. Someone told me google maps did the same if you clicked traffic but I couldn't get the alerts like accidents and cops, only speeds.
Having lived in both Houston and currently in Denver here is a list of the differences:
Will add more as I think of it. Also, there are parts of Denver that are very much politically like Austin(very liberal, try Boulder), and other parts that are much more so like the suburbs of Dallas (Golden/Lakewood/Aurora). On average, the area leans left.
Done and Done!
Here's an etsy listing for someone who is local to Denver and makes eye patches -- maybe they'd be able to work out a custom order?
It's a bit of a hike, but I have yet to see a better place than Willow Lakes in Silverthorne. I've been there the past two summers and it was so picturesque with the pristine lakes.
Good question! The supporters group Centennial 38 has the best prices and no fees. C38 the party bus from the Celtic to the game has beer and the tailgate has food and more beer. Would highly recommend it.
The red flag in the beginning of the video (red flag white circle with a crescent and gear) is a CPUSA flag if anyone is wondering (Communist Party USA).
Meetup.com, lots of different groups, pick a few and try to do at least one a month (better if two) til you find your groove.
You're me, I got out of the service industry and started working a 'real job' (8am - 4pm) so no more late night stuff. Lost all my "friends" but found new ones at work (this was pre-meetup.com). Took a while though!
Upper Chicago Lake. Short, nice drive from Denver to already scenic Echo Lake, then a difficult but rewarding hike ending at an alpine lake beneath Mt Evans
Here's a pic I took and some info:
Tonight I want you to download the free app; Skyview and report back. You literally zoomed into Orion's belt. I'm really saddened that you're and adult and this is the first time you noticed it. Yikes.
Huge open dog park at Cherry Creek Reservoir. They can run, jump and slosh around in a creek.
There is an entry fee but seeing how happy our dog was when we took her there was priceless.
monst posted this pretty comprehensive spreadsheet a while back. I haven't been going out too much lately so I don't have a favorite right now.
It's pretty bad right now, but it doesn't like smell. Visibility is normally much much better. I can't see the mountains from about 20 miles away at work. Normally I can make out all the peaks on the range.
If you haven't already, you can try putting his litter box outside to lure him back.
Hope he makes his way home safe and sound!
Here's a map for those who have the Dining Out Passbook (their website doesn't include one.) If you're not familiar, it's a coupon book type thing that gives you 2-for-1 entrees at a ton of good restaurants in Denver. Color coded - green <$10, yellow $10-20, red >$20.
It's on sale on groupon for $45 right now, even better when you combine with coupon codes (summer20 for 20% off, YMMV.) I'm not affiliated with it and it's not a referral link, but if this isn't allowed I'll remove it.
It includes tons of awesome restaurants like Biju's, Prohibition, Lola, Bubu, Crafty Fox, Ignite burgers, a bunch of the richard sandoval resteraunts (Tamayo is pretty bomb), Los Chingones, Mod Market, Pinche Tacos, etc...
Edit: I also have this overlaid with the TwoParts drink Passport (sold out) to help plan out trips if anyones interested.
Here's a pretty loop you could just stay in your car and drive.
Parts of what you're saying I definitely agree with. I personally put 10% of every paycheck into savings and another 10% into an investment account. I'm not happy if I don't have a solid contingency plan financially. I don't know how people who live paycheck to paycheck can stand it.
How much it's their own fault is still going to be very situational. Funny story, someone with a lot of debt working as a barista is not going to be able to build up much of a savings account. This doesn't just happen to people who major in Art History either. Hell, it was only 5 years ago that a major drop in demand for Aerospace Engineers left people with that particular degree unable to find decent employment (unlike other engineering disciplines, it's very inflexible.) Add all this on to the fact that having less than $1,000 in your savings account makes you AVERAGE! Admittedly, that last article makes me want to go preach personal finance on the corner, street evangelist style, to get people to manage their damn money properly.
I certainly agree that the system in place should protect against true freeloaders, but I have no issue with programs that give people a safety net when something happens. Bear in mind that unemployment isn't always short term either.
If you're determined to drive, you can try Waze.
I don't drive to work, but I've noticed it sometimes suggests taking side-street routes when traffic is heavy - which is kind of cool. However, last time I used it, it told me to get on I-25 which it said was at a "stand-still", I did and traffic seemed typical for that time of day (slow, but moving), so I'm still trying to determine how well it works and how to best use it.
Depends on the elevation where your kitchen is. At 5280 feet, the boiling point is 202F. At 7k it's 199F.
It is impossible to make water hotter than the boiling point at your given elevation outside of some type of pressure vessel.
I use a kettle on my stovetop, it boils the water. I'm at 5320 ft so I can reach 202 F.
Find your altitude here: http://veloroutes.org/elevation/
And you can determine your boiling point based on that here: https://www.omnicalculator.com/chemistry/boiling-point-altitude
Whatever the boiling point is at your elevation is the highest temp you'll be able to achieve.
Do you work in tech? Definitely try checking out tech events in Denver on builtincolorado.com/events or meetup.com, especially events that address diversity in the tech industry. If you're looking to connect with other Blerds here in Denver, it could help you out!
Essentially, the best advice comes from the last link:
> Other cities and counties have local ordinances banning the breed such as Lone Tree and Castle Rock. Please check with the Animal Control Department of any county that you are thinking of relocating to, to ensure that you and your animal friend will not be harassed, exiled, or executed.
I did, but I'm not convinced of the veracity of the ICE claims. They have been caught ginning up their numbers by filing bogus criminal charges. I'd like to know how many of those pending criminal charges are valid.
All of that said, my original point is being undocumented isn't a crime itself. So, not a "known risk when breaking the law".
I sign up for classes and events I'm interested in. For me, that usually means regularly attending dance classes. I find things to do through google, reddit, facebook, meetup.com, eventbrite.com, nextdoor, and local libraries (You can get library cards in any public library in Colorado). Plenty of options for adults.
I don't believe NWS does hourly forecasts, however, you can always check Weather.com and other similar websites for that.

What you are saying is the teachers themselves can not adapt to learn from these materials and then teach the material. They should either feel insulted by that, or be so embarrassed they leave teaching.

I can only assume the other are some combination but maybe some people are riding horses to work.
This week I am curious what you guys like to do outside. If I didn't include your activity, like say gardening, just click other. I tried to keep the list as thorough without getting too lengthy. Thanks and enjoy this silly post.

Check out The Bivvi. It's a "hostel" that a friend of a friend owns. You can get fairly cheap private group rooms that should be able to sleep 4-6. Breakfast included. They have a hot tub, bar area and really great setup. Great spot for meeting people and one of he highest rated accommodations in the Breckenridge area. Otherwise, VRBO or AirBnB
How is that dense at all? What the fuck is your problem? It's a fucking thing we do every year. It doesn't change my schedule at all.
Did you even read the article?
Over 70 countries use DST today, mainly to:
Make better use of natural daylight.
Conserve energy otherwise spent on artificial light.
Decrease road accidents by making sure roads are naturally lit during the hours with most traffic.
So i spent the last 20minutes looking for this Venezuelan place i go to Its a little hole in the wall but its so gud, its the place with the umbrellas on the north corner side of the street :3 My mom is Dominican and its the only place beside Cuba Cuba to get plantains and authentic carribean food. I love it but its a bit pricey ($10-15 a plate)

She's wrong. If you have a good relationship with them, then I would suggest inquiring. Hurry up because open enrollment is happening now, and if they have already picked their plan, it may be too late.
Not trying to discredit global warming but this may be big factor to our dry weather:
Basically, the jet stream is much farther north than usual this time of year so the Pacific Northwest is getting all the weather and we are stuck here with sunny days.
Wal Mart special. $180, brand new, out the door. I can't believe people steal those, and it is even more unbelievable that someone would steal parts off of one.
I know a guy that likes to ride around when he takes business trips, but it is now $125 EACH WAY to take a bike on an airplane, plus the hassle. A few times he has either gone to Wal Mart or hit craigslist for a cheap bike to ride while he is in a city, and when he is done, he either just leaves the bike near the hotel or finds a place to donate it, or just randomly grabs someone on the street and gives it to them.
Deer Trail used to be the “accessible” one. Now the land owner and the local police very actively patrol the site, and aggressively prosecute trespassers. If you try to go, odds are you’ll see the inside of a jail rather than the inside of a missile base.
Hey really, really dig your stuff. I'm starting up my own shoegaze/dreampop project here (most of these songs don't have any vocals because I'm looking for someone to fill that role):
These are just shitty demos recorded in my bedroom. Anyhow, I'm a versatile guitar player, who would be interested in doing something stylistically different in a support role for another band.
I love The National and Sufjan Stevens, and your stuff seems to be more in that vein.

If you don't want to sign up or something, I can post this information there for you. Thanks for looking out! https://nextdoor.com/
Get a hitch receiver lock that covers the tow chains. I had suggested this one on the other stolen trailer. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07B3YBQX4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Nothing is foolpoof, but if you cant hook the trailer up it's going to be a lot harder to steal. It's a minor investment for something like a trailer.
This one . I researched a lot of them. For reference, I am in a 1200' loft. I just happened to put it closest to the window where cigarette smoke and other "scents" waft in most often. I change the air filter every 6 mos.
It's still available according to their website:
Looks like Whole Paycheck has it via Amazon:
You could consider buying one of those portable saunas from Amazon. At a few hundred bucks, you'll pretty quickly pull ahead of whatever session rates you're looking at.

I moved here at the end of March, just in time for the 11 inches we got around April 1st. I was amazed at quickly that snowfall melted, but then again it was ~50 degrees out. This Friday is supposed to be 50 deg. F, so I don't think it'll stick around as long as it did with the New Year snowfall.
I'd stop by Root Down in concourse C for a meal or drink - it's one of the nicer restaurants in the airport. You can also check out some of the art in the airport and, according to this there's an outdoor patio you can hang out on.
Under $300 per night to accommodate 8 people is unreasonable but not impossible.
Stay near the 38th/Blake Street Station on the RTD A-Line. You can take the Train to Union Station and walk to Coors Field area. You can take the Train to Union and get a transfer to Mile High Stadium. You'll be close to all the hip breweries and will be a 10 minute Uber away from Highlands.
Trolling online is one thing, fucking up traffic for 1000's of people is trolling at entirety different level.
You sir need a hug, and snow tires or chains.
Snow tires provide superior traction and stopping over all seasons or AWD, but im sure your anecdotal experience is much more scientific l.
I don't know if they ever found this dog, but I remember the family was frantic.
Don't know if you are a costco member, but they do pretty good floral work. I don't know what kind of lead time they need, but they might be able to help you out given your situation.
Costco deal on 24 Hr Fitness Sport, $399.99 for 24 months, works out to be less than $17.00/month. You don't get the flexibility of paying month by month, but super cheap.
Free hitchhiking to the top of Loveland pass and Berthoud pass and ski down. Lots of people do it, you'll always see people with thumbs out. The snow can be fresh much longer than a resort.
Carpool or hitchhike from one of the park n' rides to save gas money getting there. Total cost would be about $0-40 depending what you rented, borrowed or scored free rides.
> 67% of all home sales nationally, last month were cash. Huge surge in speculative investors and cheap money flowing from China.
67% of homes in cash: "The number of all-cash sales is highest for those residential properties priced below $100,000 — 67% of which are paid for in cash — and homes worth over $2 million — 45% of which are all-cash purchases."
Money from China. WSJ.com site needs a login, but this is the same story: "Purchasers from China made up 16% of international buyers who bought primarily single-family homes and condominiums in the 12-month period that ended in March, according to the survey by the National Association of Realtors.
The Chinese also dominated dollar volume of properties sold. Buyers from China purchased $28.6 billion of properties in the U.S. in the year ending in March 2015."
We don't have a presence on meetup.com but we have a Facebook group.
In the past we have had a general rotation, but recently we have been trying new locations. I don't know of schedule being posted in general but /u/DeviatedNorm posted our probable schedule for the next couple weeks.
As you can see via satellite, tons of parking and some hiking trails. The terrain isn't difficult.
That's one mystery solved.
Anywhere in the mountains thats 100yds from the center of the road, trail head, or camp ground.
Buffalo Creek has a small range.
Summit county has a good one as well behind the dump

Nextdoor is always a solid option. Once you get past the "gunshots or fireworks?" posts, there's usually great connections and resources.
As a Realtor®, this is a guide I've found helpful to many. The company that made it typically sells very high end properties so it doesn't include suburbs and some of the lower prices areas, but I haven't found anything all in one place that is this helpful. http://issuu.com/madisonprops/docs/reviseddenverneighborhoodguide
And here's one of my favorite maps for Denver proper.
Highlands and Wash Park are in transition and many places are being scraped and rebuilt. They're highly desirable areas, especially among young professionals, but come with a premium price tag.
Where do you see that? Both Weather Underground and NOAA are reporting dry/slight chance of rain for Denver.

The first chance for snow in Denver arrives on Saturday.
It seems interesting in one form or another. I took a look at the hashtag myself and only found 50 tweets about this, with nothing about the location.
I did see a Denver Post article about a Lakewood e-Sports arena posted last month, so there’s a possibility it could be related to it.
> I'm not to sure how hiking or trails work so is there a difference between a hiking trail and a trail that goes up a mountain?
For your purposes, probably not. There do exist multi-use trails where you could encounter mountain bikers, jeeps, horses or whatever.
An hour from Aurora limits your options since it takes a decent while just to get to the foothills. You could hike Dakota Ridge, and Red Rocks park. Some nice views of the metro area from there.
Expand your radius out to a couple hours or so and you can hit Mt Evans, St Marys Glacier, Loveland and Berthoud Passes, etc... Do be mindful of the elevation change for your friends, which may hit them quite hard if they haven't acclimated. Tell them to stay well hydrated.
Also, search over at /r/coloradohikers.
Wow, looks like a fun trip! The Med in Boulder is a great place for food, or Avery has good food and beer.
I think you should do Coors + Red Rocks on the same day. Golden and Morrison are right next to each other. In Golden I really like D'Deli for a quick bite or Miner's Saloon to sit down. New Terrain Brewing is great for a beer.
Wandering around Denver, your activities will really depend on the weather. I always enjoy a good walk around City Park or Washington Park if it's nice.
I agree with u/CooterNCville about skipping Garden of the Gods. Definitely not worth the drive. There's lots of other cool things to see! You could do Lookout Mountain in Golden, stop at Lake Dillon in Silverthorne (and then eat at the Dam Brewery), or go for a short hike at St Mary's Glacier.
This is my Boulder route. It's 86 miles, but if you can cut it short a bit if you start further north and stop further south. It's almost 100% on bike paths -- there's one street crossing.
If you or someone you know lives in the neighborhood there, post it on the Nextdoor app. https://nextdoor.com/. I've had neighbors put up lost pet posts there and get a huge response from the community.
Unfortunately, no. Especially now that Westword is sucking more and more.
I've been having a lot of luck with Bandsintown, but a lot of it seems to be familiarizing yourself with the venues in town and checking the calendars for the ones who play the kinds of stuff you're into.
Denver.org is surprisingly decent for festivals too.
>Really don't have many friends outside of work here :-/
That's adult life, I think television is selling everyone a lie that people have tons of compatriots to do things with outside work.
Meetup.com find something you're interested in and participate, or make a group and lead.
Sooo... The new law is one of those that isn't enforced. When you do your smog test, no one goes under your car and looks at the cat. I wouldn't worry about it. Most of the catalytic converters are going to be compliant because California is such a big market.
What year is your Prius? When you look under the car, did they cut your exhaust or did they remove it from the bolts? It looks like most Priuses (Prisi? Prion?) have a quick disconnect with a couple bolts. If they just removed it and did not cut it, you can do the installation yourself. This one might fit.
If they cut your exhaust, it will need to be welded. I have a friend who recommends JD's as a local mechanic. I have no personal experience with any Denver mechanics.
I am sorry people suck.
Same here. I actually have one that has loops to go over my ears, so it doesn't work its way down when I'm talking.
Similar to this.
It's great to always have it handy.
That's a cool and uncommon thing, mainly for the format. There aren't many of the wall maps that survive. I suppose part of it is the size and the ephemeral nature of the wall map as the Denver area was changing, if it was going to be outdated and obsolete... why keep it. And they published a lot of folding pocket maps that could be used for the delivery or address location, without taking up space.
I don't remember off the top of my head when Hotchkiss bought out Clason, I think mid to late 40's(?), but I do know that they took Clason's base maps and kept working from those, erasing the old company's name and adding theirs, but I don't know about their consistency on updating their publications.
The Clason company that came before them was a real local force for promotion in development and settlement. There's actually a gent doing a book on them. But I don't think Hotchkiss had near the momentum or span.
If I remember I think Clason sold out of the map business because he got into a new field of publishing on how to get rich with a book called "The Richest Man in Babylon: Success Secrets of The Ancients"... and he made bank. (And inspired a great title for Thievery Corporation album)
Sorry for rambling.
How big of a rental? There are plenty of 1/1 a bit outside the city around $1,000 but it's hit or miss.
I don't know anything about extended stay hotels here. I'd look into maybe doing a monthly airbnb over one of those, but that's me.
https://www.airbnb.com/s/Denver--CO--United-States/all?refinement_paths%5B%5D=%2Ffor_you&place_id=ChIJzxcfI6qAa4cR1jaKJ_j0jhE&query=Denver%2C%20CO%2C%20United%20States&checkin=2018-06-01&checkout=2018-06-30 you can alter the dates a bit, but it's about the same price as rent, but it's furnished.
Do you live in Denver or are you coming to visit? You don't need a 4wd car to go to the mountains unless conditions are bad. Even then a decent fwd car should be good, unless there are traction control limitations on the highway.
Might I suggest visiting Alamosa and going to the Great Sand Dunes? You can go to a hot water spring nearby and there are a few airbnb in that area to sleep in. We stayed here, and it was a super quiet, nice place to sleep at.
