Lafayette, CO (near Boulder) - looking for a flexible holiday swap, ~2-7 days, anywhere within 8 hours drive

2020.10.17 17:54 Grant_DaGlove_Payton Lafayette, CO (near Boulder) - looking for a flexible holiday swap, ~2-7 days, anywhere within 8 hours drive

Hi all,
We live in a small but cozy 2 bedroom house in the Old Town neighborhood of Lafayette, CO, which is a really cute town near Boulder, CO. We're just 2 blocks from the main street, ~15 minutes from Boulder, and nearby countless parks, cross-country skiing spots, etc. We have a fenced yard and it's dog friendly (we have a small hypoallergenic Havanese). There is a queen in the main bedroom and two twins plus an office desk in the other bedroom. Fast internet, TV, etc. plus lots of board games.
My fiancé and I are looking to house swap sometime soon, maybe over Christmas, but we're flexible. Just looking to get away at a reasonable price. Somewhere within ~8 hours driving of Denver, so maybe Southern Colorado, Santa Fe, Omaha, who knows. Bonus if you have a hot tub!
Maybe you have family in the area and want to see them? Send me a message!

MSFS Includes Hundreds of Photorealistic Cities
As we have learned, the entire Earth of the next-generation Microsoft Flight Simulator is based on Bing Maps satellite imagery, filled with Blackshark.ai’s auto-generated objects, such as houses, trees, and windmills. A few hundreds of cities, strictly speaking of 341, mostly in North America and Europe, have been presented more accurately by using photogrammetry.
In some cities, the data may be a few years old, which can be seen as old commercials in some of the billboards. More highly modeled cities will come in the future as World Update for sure, although there is no confirmation on this yet. Below is the list of highly modeled cities, organized by countries and states (United States).

2020.09.07 17:00 planty_mcplant Mt Rainier Northern Loop (9/1/2020 - 9/4/2020)

Northern Loop Trip Report

Statistics

Pictures: https://imgur.com/a/aM6WUpu
Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7vCH8lQWpc
Lighterpack: https://lighterpack.com/4v7x8e
Baseweight (without camera): 8.4lbs
Baseweight (with camera): 9lbs
Route: https://caltopo.com/m/F7D8
Total mileage:
We had some confusion around mileage on this trip. The TL;DR is it felt a LOT longer than the 46.5 miles I calculated when planning with CalTopo. We imported the CalTopo maps into Avenza on our phones and found 1-2 places where the actual trail diverged significantly from the CalTopo marking.
We think the reason why it felt so long was a combination of lots of elevation, and some reporting inconsistencies.
Rather than speaking in absolutes, I've provided all the values we collected so future hikers can use them for reference. Its obvious to me that my hiking partner's Fitbit is wrong. My guess is its overestimating due to shorter steps when walking uphill.

Itinerary

Day 1 - Sunrise Visitor Center to Cataract Valley campsite

Mileage:
My hiking partner and I arrived at the Sunrise Visitor Center around 10am on Tuesday Sep 1. We had printed both our parking permit and our backcountry permit ahead of time, so we were able to just use the bathroom and get going on the Sourdough Ridge Trail.
The crowds were thick around Sunrise but thinned out quickly once we had hiked down to the Granite Creek campsite. Once we reached the bottom of the Winthrop Glacier morraine we found the river running extremely high, just a few inches below the tree trunk bridge (see the video). If I had been solo I would have waited for another hiker to watch me hike across so that they could call in a rescue if I fell. We could hear boulders rolling under the water.
From there we climbed up to Mystic Lake where we took a swim, then trucked onwards across the long climb and descent down into the Carbon Glacier valley. Because we started late, we were very tired by the time we reached the suspension bridge and started the climb up to Cataract Valley campsite. We arrived at the campsite just past dusk. The weather was good and there were no bugs so I slept with the tarp doors open and the bivy partially unzipped.
I would not particularly recommend Cataract Valley as a place to camp. Its in a very wet forest and the tent sites are all hardpack and concave. I couldn't get a permit for the Carbon River campsite.

Day 2 - Cataract Valley campsite to Ipsut Creek campground

Mileage:
We were out of camp around 9am and climbed straight up to Spray Park. There were only a few lingering snowfields at the top which were easy to cross with no traction beyond trekking poles. From the top we saw a pair of mountain goats grazing at the lake below.
We descended down Spray Park and followed the trail all the way to Mowich Lake, where we stopped for another swim. Afterwards we went over Ipsut Pass and descended the long forested valley trail to Ipsut Creek campground. This campground used to be a car campground, so it had picnic tables and privy buildings. This was our favorite campsite. The only downside was we had to hike a bit back to the trail to get water, since Carbon River is glacier fed and full of silt.
Again, the weather was good and there were no bugs so I slept with the tarp doors open and the bivy partially unzipped.

Day 3 - Ipsut Creek campground to Fire Creek campsite

Mileage:
Again we slept in a bit and were out of camp around 9am. We hiked up Carbon River a bit then made another harrowing river crossing to start the huge climb up towards Yellowstone Cliffs. This climb is brutal at around 3000ft of gain in 3 miles, and it really aggravated my achilles tendonitis.
We took a break at the Yellowstone Cliffs campsite where we thought we heard but didn't see a bear. Then we continued upwards to an alpine park, then way back down into the West Fork White River valley. At this point my achilles tendons were hurting extremely badly, so the final climb for the day up to Fire Creek was slow and painful. I leaned heavily on my trekking poles to take the weight off my feet, which left me with sore lats and triceps.
We arrived at Fire Creek about two hours before dusk. This was the only campsite on the trip where I got a significant amount of bug bites during golden hour. I think they went away once the sun went down, but I slept with the bivy zipped over my head all night just in case. I did not pitch my tarp at all.

Day 4 - Fire Creek campsite to Sunrise Visitor Center

Mileage:
The last day felt short in comparison to the others, but it was still pretty tiring. We decided to get out early, which ended up being a good choice since the day turned hot and hazy early. We were on the trail by around 7:45am.
We had a moderate climb out of Fire Creek up to Grand Park, then descended into the vally next to Mt. Fremont. Finally, we climbed up to the trail back to Paradise, then fought through the crowds to get back to the car. We were on our way home by 1:30pm.

Gear Talk

Shelter - MLD Solomid XL and TiGoat Kestrel Bivy

Pic from this trip: https://i.imgur.com/J9uHeq7.jpeg
I've been using this 2019 silnylon Solomid XL since March 2020 and so far its my favorite tarp I've ever owned. Its extremely spacious and dead simple to pitch. Combined with the simplicity of the bivy, I had my shelter set up in half the time it took my hiking partner to set up their Big Agnes. I didn't need the protection since the weather was perfect, but at only 14.5oz stripped down I hardly noticed it in my pack when I cowboy camped.
I bought the TiGoat bivy on impulse since I've been wanting one to help me with splashback. I got it never intending to actually use the hood, but it wasn't the end of the world sleeping under it at Fire Creek where there were a few bugs. I noticed that it was really warm when zipped up. It felt like it added 5-10deg to my shelter system. Its weird that people don't mention this when they talk about bivies.
I found that the top of the Kestrel bivy breathed really well. It was a little tight with an XLite though unfortunately, and my quilt footbox got slightly compressed.

Pack - SWD Superior 35L

Pic from this trip: https://i.imgur.com/CEvtKhY.jpeg
This is my seconds hipbeltless SWD Superior, and I like it much better than my first. I've written about it pretty extensively already, but the TL;DR is I have upgraded the fabric durability and capacity since my last pack, and I regret neither for the 3.5oz penalty.
It carried 4 days of food and 2L of water like a champ (not to mention the 2 Rainier beers I had stowed as a treat for our first night). It compressed really well on the last day when I didn't have any food left.
Here are some additional pictures of the pack fully loaded with this hike's gear and food at home before the trip: https://imgur.com/a/v424zoy

Base Layer Top - Mountain Equipment Solar Eclipse

I haven't seen much written about this base layer here, but I think its a great US big-box alternative to the Macpac / KUIU hype train. At 5.2oz for a large 1/4 zip, its very comfortable and warm, and it works really well on its own as summer insulation when paired with a windshirt or rain jacket.

UL Food

Like many on this sub, I was very taken by GearSkeptic's YouTube channel on performance nutrition for backpacking and devoured all of the videos. I decided to use this trip as a testing ground for this style of food management. I cold soaked two dinners, but otherwise consumed only ready-to-eat food and drink mixes.
Overall this methodology worked really well for me. My food came down to about 1.4lbs per day, which is much lighter than what I normally eat.
Not all of my choices were ultralight as defined by GearSkeptic (150 kcal per oz or higher), but I tried to keep it above 100 kcal per oz except for a few pleasure items.
Here's a rough breakdown of the foods I brought. I 0'd low calorie ingredients:
Food Ingredients kcal per oz
Kind Bar (peanut butter dark chocolate) n/a 142
Snickers Bar n/a 134
Clif Blueberry Almond Butter n/a 130
String Cheese n/a 90
Dried apricots n/a 78
Trail mix Almond M&Ms, Peanuts, Macademia Nuts 148, 170, 202
Granola breakfast granola, milk powder 140, 100
Backpacker pad thai instant ramen, peanut butter, sriracha, soy sauce, fresh cillantro 128, 168, 0, 0, 0
Cold soak burritos olive oil, Santa Fe instant refried beans, tortillas, dried vegetable mix, Taco Bell hot sauce 253, 105, 90, 0, 0
"Rocket fuel" drink mix ON whey powder, hot chocolate mix, milk powder 100, 105, 100
Emergen-C n/a 0
Instant coffee n/a 0
My eating schedule was as follows:
I never once felt hungry and was down to my last 1/2 bag of trail mix at the end of the trail. Chef's kiss.

Closing Thoughts

The Northern Loop was cool. I'm glad we did the Spray Park extension. I've done many day hikes and overnights to Rainier, so it was very satisfying to connect all these familiar places together.
This hike has some of the most incredible views I've ever seen of Rainier and its glaciers, but it makes you work for them. We spent as much time sweating at the bottom of cold river valleys 3000ft below the views as we did up in the clouds taking pretty pictures of them.
The steep mountainous terrain within Rainier NP made it hard to estimate difficulty based on mileage. Overall my hiking partner and I both felt much more tired than expected from 10-15 mile days. The two of us normally hike 15-20 miles per day in other parts of the Cascades.
Would I do anything differently?
10/10 hike (if you can get the permits).

2020.08.30 18:47 Maca2166 Complete list of Photo-realistic cities currently in MSFS2020

I went digging and put this together for myself - I thought this would be a good resource for those who find themselves chasing the photo-realism this sim has to offer.

I will try and keep this thread updated as the sim is updated as a constant resource for the community to reference when needed!
Edit - Creds to u/zebenji82 who created this map of Photo-realistic cities! https://www.google.com/maps/d0/viewer?mid=1tUFC3huqqKhPGJqt2szoLNocFyNZnucx&ll=-3.81666561775622e-14%2C-106.14124334999997&z=2

2020.08.16 03:57 Keywhole High vibrational communities (empathetic, artistic, music-oriented, nature loving)

hAUM is where the HeArt is.
Constellations of unique people often seem to be an enclave within various cities (and in the vicinity of Universities), rather than being the defining spirit of a small town.
The early beatniks of Greenwich Village in Manhattan, the hipsters of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, the early hippies of San Francisco, the green anarchists of the Pacific Northwest (Free Cascadia: Vancouver, Seattle, Portland). The artists of Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico. Art districts of Denver and Naropa in Boulder, Colorado. Liberal culture in Burlington, Vermont. And to some extent Asheville and Athens in the Southeastern US. These areas also coincide with the total number of yoga studios and vegetarian restaurants.
And the transient festival cultures like Burning Man, Ozora, and Boom play host to subcultures and fringe eccentricities.
Where else on this pale blue dot are creative, open-minded, future-forward, eclectic people living and gathering these days?

2020.06.24 20:40 hwornick 4Runner or Crossover for an adventurer living in a city?

I'm finally giving up my 2000 Toyota 4Runner. It has served me incredibly well, but I'm hoping that by moving to a newer vehicle, I get features like heated seats, backup camera, nice audio system, bluetooth, etc.
I use it for what I'd guess is a 50-50 split between adventure use and general use. I hike/camp/ski a lot, so I need an outdoor oriented vehicle. Preferably 4x4 or AWD that performs well on mountain roads, in both summer and winter (yes, I know tires make the biggest difference). But I live in a city, so a lot of my driving is around town, or highways within 50 miles.
Everyone I know just says, "Get a newer 4Runner, they're amazing." But I noticed: (1) the new model is even bigger, and I already don't fully utilize the cargo space, and (2) it's really designed for off-roading, and while I drive on snow and dirt occasionally, I've only driven over boulders maybe once or twice. Reviews seem to indicate that you get this only if you off-road all the time.
Given a budget of $35k (+/- $5k), and not wanting to go older than 2016-ish, do I get a newer 4runner, or should I consider a crossover? Or something else entirely?
One other question: how much should I care about a turbocharger?

2020.06.19 06:50 childroid Confused on how to feel in the wake of recovery

Hey everyone!
It's been a while since I've posted. I like to keep you fine people in the loop with my experience, but recently it's been hard to put into words.
I'll start by saying the number one thing I was worried about when I was diagnosed on Nov 1, 2019 was whether I'd be able to climb again. The surgery on my armpit, the impending vein pain, weakness, and neuropathy freaked me out. I told myself I'd be recovered when I can get back to the top of the wall.
Two months of chemo and a few weeks of radiation left me bedridden, immunocompromised (thanks neutropenia!), in pain, and out of work. The day after my last day of radiation I left for family vacation in Santa Fe. It was my grandparents' 60th anniversary and we went to surprise them. This was mid-Feb. I had an incredible time, as exhausted as I was! I was able to go bouldering once while there and felt ok doing it, but I'm not much of a boulderer usually. It's fun, but it doesn't give me the feelings I associate with climbing (achievement, danger, ability, serenity, height), or with feeling myself again.
Once I got home I went back to work. FMLA was done. I took a few weeks to get acclamated at work and then BAM quarantine. Rock gyms are closed. My hair is back, I'm in remission (and feeling great physically, which is amazing). But part of me feels like I'm still a patient.
I'm still worrying about my immune system, I still have to be home most of the time, I still don't go into work, and for god's sake I still can't climb.
I love to top rope and lead climb, preferably outdoors. Lead climbing specifically is challenging, dangerous, and incredibly rewarding. The top of a wall is where I feel my best, and that's where I told myself I'd be able to be by now. By March, really. I haven't climbed for real since early October.
I have a lot to be grateful for, none of it is lost on me. But the chapter of my life that was having cancer is something I would very much like to close.
I've bought a camera (Fuji X-T30 for those of you who want ideas) to encourage me to get outside and explore, and I've taken to exercising and eating healthy, so I'm trying to feel those feelings in other ways. But shit I miss the climb. I miss the supportive community and culture, the challenging routes, the sense of accomplishment.
I'm grateful to have my health and my hair, I'm grateful for what I learned when I had cancer, and I want to make peace with the experience by ending it with proof I can make a full recovery. If that makes sense.
Sorry if this was whiny, I know you all have a lot going on too. Just thought I'd update you with my experience, how far I've come since I last posted, and how I'm doing now. It's a weird time for all of us, and I want to hear how you all are doing!!
Much love.

2020.06.16 09:19 Aus-Sky-Hunter Stanza 1 & 2, WWWH... + a little bit more!

Just my thinking, for what it’s worth (I’ve got a bit more on each point to reinforce the logic but doesn’t really matter now):
Stanza 1 - The Broad Strokes
“As I have gone alone in there And with my treasures bold” • This is stating ,on the surface, that where he hid the chest is somewhere he’s been before. I also think it’s a nod to Santa Fe in going there alone himself then relocating the family (his treasure).
“I can keep my secret where” • this is a question missing a question mark... Questa marks the spot
“And hint of riches new and old” • New = New Mexico, Old = Taos County (Taos Pueblo is the oldest settlement in NM)
Stanza 2 - Where To Physically Start
“Begin it where warm waters halt” • I never had a doubt that warm waters were a thermal spring and I felt FF’s comment about there being “many north of Santa Fe” ruled out almost any other option. So the clue to which one must lie within the “halt” and I’ve already narrowed down my search to Questa, Taos County, NM. Embargo Hot Spring was my spot! Embargo being the temporary enforced halt of Trade... and I feel the “Trade” theme resonates well with old mate FF (spent most of his life doing it to varying degrees and just look at his website’s name).
“And take it in the canyon down Not far but too far to walk Put in below the home of Brown” • OK, so if you are aware of this general area (as I know a couple of you are and have gone BOTG in the very early days) you’ve probably guessed the “Canyon” is Red River Box Canyon (“get back in the box”) that runs down from Embargo Hot Spring, that HOB is just below Red River Fish Hatchery (fed by the Hot Spring to help breed Rainbow Trout and the run-off back into Red River promotes wild Brown Trout to swim up to the Hatchery to spawn), and the NFBTWTW is not only true in that you cannot walk from the Hot Spring to the Hatchery (which is 2.4miles) but have to drive up, around & back down (which is 4miles)... this fits in nicely with the whole “not 4 but 2 4 to walk” interpretation!
What Is”IT”?
Now, for me, the true definition of “It” is absolutely vital from this point. • If “It” is the water then we haven’t moved anywhere and are still standing at Embargo Hot Springs visual observing the water’s travel from the Spring down to below the Hatchery (as described in Stanza 2). • If “It” is your physical journey then you are now standing next to the Red River just downstream of the Hatchery having driven from the Spring to the car park next to it.
“No place for the meek” - adjacent to Pope Lake “End drawing nigh” - coming up on the left “No paddle up your creek” - dry creek “Heavy Loads” - overhead powerlines / boulders “Water High” - lake and La Junta Campground above
They all work from either location... one route puts you about a mile upstream of the Hatchery and the other puts you about 2 miles downstream of it!
So there’s part of my solution... and I did have the rest, but living in Australia I was biding my time to come look and alas it’s all too late.

2020.06.10 16:37 plateaucampChimp Long Time Podcast fan now living not civilized to death

Hi Tangentially speaking crowd. I know most of you are cool people who are open minded. I'm new here and growing my village. Downsized in 2017 and went to Burningman. Then kept living that way out in remote boulder town Utah, living in a yurt off grid, gave up the entitled tourist traveling lifestyle, guess that you would call "settling down". Figured out some shit and want to share and encourage y'all to join and visit my camp in the Santa Fe area of NM to inspire you that you can live free too. Been living on 2.4 acres abandoned property I bought and building up slowly. Its a teaching camp of how to do the complexity of going simple. People want to do what I do but don't. Thought I share here. www.plateaucamp.life
Also have a YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8L9j1v5q6h_9DNUcNG7gMA?view_as=subscriber
Have fun,
Tomas

hey everyone
My wife and i are packing up and out of the bay area to spend a month in each of Bend, Boise, Boulder, Santa Fe and Sedona.
Partly picked these places to explore on foot and bike. Was hoping there was some local riders on here that could offer some advice
Ive gone from Road -> Gravel and was going to take my gravel bike with me that can take up to 42mm on a 700cc but now im wondering if i should invest in a hardtail for these areas? thoughts? suggestions?

2020.05.22 08:12 davhall85 Colorado Springs Solve w/Notes

Just Another Colorado Springs Solve with notes
WWWH – Rocky Mountain Peak, Colorado Springs. Very simple WWWH that even a child would be able to come up with. (Perhaps this was the reason for the inclusion/exclusion of the answer(s) I already know?)
Canyon Down – Down Englemann Canyon to Red Canyon on highway 24. You will be going down in elevation.
Not far but too far – Take 24 keep going down in elevation towards Colorado Springs.
HOB – Bear Creek Canon Park
No place for the meek - (Trail 666 is also high drive / beahigh creek)
End is drawing near - Take the first creek/rivulet on the left as you go south on High Drive from the parking lot. The creek is listed on older maps.
No paddle – Use the small creek that feeds into high/bear creek and rocky. Again, this was the same as the previous it just describes how difficult it is to locate. National Parks maps indicate it exists, but it has no name.
Wise – You Y off the rivulet to the left and head towards the peak. It is also close but not too close to a trail on various maps.
Blaze - Boulder near the peak. The boulder is on border of uninhibited private property just 100 feet down from the peak you can see Gardiners Gulch as well. 38°48'43.19"N, 104°53'13.25"W.
Quickly down – Either at the bouldeblaze and or you will be searching possibly private property that is uninhibited. What is interesting is one parcel next to it is owned by Santa Fe Partners which was previously split up multiple times. The Santa Fe parcel itself was purchased just prior to the release of TTOTC. A parcel search on this general area may give more information. Fenn purchased a parcel somewhere within the 22-14-67 range.
Marvel gaze – This huge rock looks like an out of place marble. The view here is of Colorado Springs which is eerily quiet for being so close to civilization.
Hear me all – May be a reference to either the Ute who inhibited the area, the fact that it is near the top of a small peak or any other number of reasons.
After looking into old boards found it interesting that Fenn had purchased property in Colorado Springs in 1965. At this point in Fenn’s life he was a 15-year veteran who likely contemplated leaving the service (Fenn himself stated he did not want to work for more than 15 years in one career). Perhaps Fenn believed he would come down on orders for Colorado Springs and purchased the land before. Or perhaps Fenn decided to purchase a parcel in Colorado believing it would be his next step in life if he had chosen to leave at that point. Have seen many soon to be retirees do the exact same while in around the 15-year mark. Perhaps the parcel could have been the path Fenn was never afforded due to the Vietnam War which he found himself in. Regardless it seems too odd that Fenn never mentions Colorado given he has had to spend a good deal of time there. If an individual were to bury a treasure where is the last place they would want to discuss?
Thoughts?

2020.05.06 19:19 ItsBOOM SR-06-11: Proportional Districts Resolution

A Resolution to Proportionally Allocate State Assembly Districts

Whereas; The democratic principle of one man, one vote requires that districts have approximately equal population when used in conjunction with district first-past-the-post races;
Whereas; Current Sierran state legislative districts are horribly unbalanced population wise, leading to a dilution of votes in more populous districts, violating the democratic principle of one man, one vote;
Whereas; It is in the best interest of Sierrans that the legislature draw legislative districts that are approximately proportional while preserving the spirit and culture of each district;
Therefore, be it RESOLVED by the general assembly of the state of Sierra

Section I. Findings and Short Title

(a) This resolution may be cited as the “2020 Proportional Districts Resolution”
(b) The Sierran Assembly finds that;
(1) Sierra, as a state, abides by the principles of republican governance, representation, democracy, and any sub-principles thereof; and
(2) It is unjust and undemocratic to deny the citizens of Sierra equal representation based upon the location of their residence and to dilute their voting power thereof as understood in Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. 533 (1964).

Section II. General Provisions

(a) The Sierran General Assembly adopts the following map as the official legislative district map for the General Assembly of the state of Sierra.
