So we decided (my parents and I) that the first week of August would be a good time to take a break from it all. And siggy has been nagging me how much of a toll the constant campaigns against the COP have been taking on him, so why not?
About this creation
"The road's buuu--mmmppy."
First day was pretty much spent driving for several hours. Beautiful scenery all around, it is Colorado after all. Ultra kept pestering me to change the page. He was excited to see some of the newer figs coming out...he wanted me to get one of their numbers for me, I declined.
We just took it easy that night, swimming, television, such like that.
I just couldn't resist myself. Ultra didn't like me taking that picture, but I told him it would make him a celebrity.
The next day, we went on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge RR. This is actually a museum piece. He was pretty bummed that he couldn't reach the controls, started whining about me not owning some of the 9v trains so he really could drive one. I politely stopped listening right about then...
Some of the views of the surroundings, it was breathtaking. Ultra said it did something for his muse; I could well believe that, rather thought-provoking.
Next day we did quite a bit of hiking. He took along this get-up and played at being Indiana Jones.
Took it easy that night, he curled up around his cookie and dozed whilst I watched something on the Sci-fi channel.
After that, we went to the Great Sand Dunes National Park where he did some dirt biking. Didn't figure the rangers would mind letting him have some fun since it was a zero-emissions vehicle.
On the road home. Ultra figured since he was a Supreme Commander and all that he could navigate. Got us lost a few times. He was kinda anxious to get home, had a few ideas for renewed offensives against the COP... But he got us there the lllloonnnngggg way.
Well, glad to see you had fun. SOME OF US don't get vacations like that.SOME OF US built stuff in our yards that were halfway done when the county came by and mentioned we weren't allowed to build sheds on our own property....Other than that, I hope Ultra had a chance to refresh himself. I bet the COP troops are mad they didn't get a vacation, or they just took the chance to take over whilst you were away.
