Hmmm, I remember mentioning a few thousand times that I want to move to Colorado. :p:

And you at least have to come back and get me and the kids. Or at least just me. ;)

Ummm no! I have seen a few too many places already to go wheeling, but I can help you with four Mustangs and two trucks if your interested :p:





47* this morning, man it feels so nice here!!

Well getting loaded and ready to leave Carbondale to head out to Ely, Nevada this morning, but we'll be back here in a few days after the race is over to do some work on this house.

Hate to leave but glad we'll be coming back, and we'll try to get some fishing in while we're here again.

Jeff -

It could be like my own little rally road race driving up the mountains, throwing the rear-end of Reaper out, cruising through curves....*giggle*

Those roads are a blast to drive on if you love to drive.

Yeah, the last time Reaper went through them, SVO played bumper tag with an Audi all the way between Silverton and Durango. You should've seen the looks we were getting from those we passed at high rates of speed...lol. :D

I kept thinking that it looked like Jeff had shaved his head. :p:

However, I wanna see Rick wearing the Burger King crown. :D

Wow, that is real good stuff. I'm glad Jeff got himself into this and out of school.

I am too. Though he enjoyed teaching, this is something new everyday and I don't have to worry about ticked off students threatening to stab him (yes, that did happen :rolleyes:). Plus, he has normal hours now and I get to see him everyday....well, except when he is on trips like this. :cool:

I told him to tear it down and put it in the trailer to bring back to me. We can rebuild it in the backyard. :dpchug:

Sorry, it's me Stang Girl. For some reason, whenever I step away from the computer, it logs SVO back in...lol.

YES!!!!! I see this being a blackmail picture for years to come!

Glad ya'll made it ok. :thumbsup: And remember, you are there to make sure "Edward" and Rick kick everyone's butt!

Oh yeah, I never explained why the car is named Edward for those who are interested. First of all, Rick's wife, Cara, is HUGE into the Twilight books (has read all 4 of them numerous times and is making Rick go on a Twilight cruise in Alaska. :p:). Anyhoo, the Ford color of the Mustang is Vista Blue. If you haven't seen this color in person, it is a pretty blue in the shade or at night, but it sparkles in the sun....can you see where I am going with this? I had teased Rick, when the car was at our house, that it sparkled like Edward. Of course he got it...I had to explain it to Jeff. :rolleyes:

In the movie, Edward the vampire, has a speech which fits this car perfectly...

1) Sparkles in the sun
2) Built for speed....hello...2.8 KB supercharger with over 700 rwhp!
3) Built to draw people in....again, if you saw this car in person, wouldn't you be walking right up to it to check it out? Thought so!
4) Built to kill...well, he's built to kill the competition ;)

So, the car's name is Edward. Though Jeff still calls it "the coupe", he did admit that Rick has slipped a few times and called it Edward. Now if I can just talk Rick into getting personalized plates...:D

Of course you know,
This is now my favorite thread:D

Colorado is a gem for sure, and wow, that is one spectacular home.

Is there a scheme going on here? I vote yes. :thumbsup:

Jeff and I have always planned on moving once the kids were out of high school. At the time, it was the 10-year plan. Five years later, it's still the 10-year plan. :rolleyes: However, the argument has been that I want Colorado (so I can go to all the Avs home games :D ) and Jeff wanted Northern Arizona. I am just wondering if this has changed his mind any? ;)
