I have proclaimed myself Employee of the Decade and designated today as me appreciation day. Thank you self, for all you do to prevent this place from turning into a circus of chaos and disorganization. (At least on the overnights) I ain't goin in and work an extra night tonight. For today, cost of gas, $30. Cost of pay for not working a minimum of 12 hrs. straight OT, $424.00. Cost of living in the mountains, being outdoors, catching fish, and watching the moose, priceless.

You are living large. Looks like you have the place to yourself ( except for the moose. ) Take the rest of the day off.

Pick another day brother. Today is national Boogeyman day. That & about $3 might get me a cup of coffee minus tax!
Too late, I've already started. Course I could say this one turned out to be already taken, so I got to re-schedule for next week, haha!

Lots more people there than you see, Kray, I just kept them out of the pic. Cottonwood Lake, up towards Independence Pass, west of Buena Vista, CO. Non-motorized lake so lots of kayakers and SUP'ers. I like this place as I can catch fish finally there, it's one of the few places I go where I sometimes see girls in bikinis, and the crowd is well behaved. I worked as a Park Ranger in Oklahoma for 7 years, and every weekend was one big beer party at the lake, and some of the trashiest people you ever saw.

Yeah I know where you're talking about Scrounge Wanderer. I haven't been back to Hecla since that campground went all reservation. I had to make that up and give myself that award. Cause just like everything else at work, if I don't do it, it probably won't get done, haha!
