    Because then they wouldnít have jobs. Gotta make yourself look busy or you are obsolete. Right?

    Iím not saying donít maintain or improve anything, but stop acting like getting more people to the mountains quicker is our ultimate goal. We canít handle the crowds as is. Towns are cutting their marketing budgets, outlawing Airbnbís, requiring reservations and shuttles to hike a 14er.

    I'm sure it is... but at least the food and wine is better.

    Aspen adopted that as it's identity in 1993.

    Doesn't matter. The line of U-Haul trucks of wealthy folks coming from other states drives the infrastructure boom.

    See comment "no one wants to pay for a solution". We'll slap a shoulder lane toll on this thing and see how it works out.

    The "we can't afford that", "we can't handle the crowds", "we can't engineer that", attitudes are lame. This is probably some fatigue from the last 18 months talking and a mini rant about our society but let's show some fucking ambition, ingenuity and collaboration and figure it out.

    The feds, state, and municipalities are pumping plenty of $ for us to design and build. There are even climate change components included now to make certain types happy.

    BTW i70 east of I25 is gonna be great for the front rangers plus it gets the tourists from the airport to the mtns even faster. Win-win

    Not I70, but NB82 last night. VMS alerted to rocks in the road at mm10. And sure shit there was with one about basketball size. Not emergency vehicles diverting traffic yet and about a dozen cars off the side of the road at that point checking their FSU. Probably a few more added to that tally. Didn’t look like a happy scene.

    Train is fine, airport seemed pretty packed when I flew out/back. Security was definitely fucked when I left on Monday afternoon... but I have TSA Pre-Check and it took 5 minutes. FYI, I believe Pre-Check is only open on the south side for a while.

    Glenwood closed about 5 minutes before getting there when going eastbound yesterday, already had to detour from down south with the closure on 50 as well. But heck, I had never driven over the cottonwood pass going to Gypsum before, quite nice.

    CDOT reported that there were ZERO traffic fatalities over the Labor Day weekend. I thought that was interesting.
    I didn't believe in reincarnation when I was your age either.
