I went to the DMV this morning and renewed the tag for the truck. Normal people don't have to do that because they can renew by mail or on the Internet. But since us folks that own older diesel trucks are required to have an emissions test, we have to report in person to give the government minions the paperwork showing that we passed.
But I was told this morning that the DMV is installing some new software, obviously at great expense, in August of this year that will enable all the different emissions testing places to email the results to the DMV so that people like me will be able to renew our tags on the Internet like normal folks. This was very good news to say the very least.
Since I've taken care of this whole tag renewal problem and can relax for a while, I feel that I deserve a minivacation, and have been considering another camping trip. Someplace nearby that's very popular, and I haven't been to in many many years is Rocky Mountain national Park. It's only a few miles northwest of Denver and would be a great three or four day getaway.
Now Rocky Mountain national Park isn't someplace that the Arctic Fox can't go, in fact I'm pretty sure it's full of RVs at the moment, which is one of the reasons I would like to leave the Arctic Fox behind. Rocky Mountain national Park is without a doubt one of the premier places to visit in Colorado and I'm guessing it gets pretty darn busy during the peak summer months which just happens to be about now.
But I believe that since I'm able to take my truck most anyplace, and with the ability to stay in a tent in the small national forest campgrounds, I will stand a better chance of having a fun and stress-free camping experience than trying to find a place to park a 30 foot trailer.
This minivacation hasn't even reached the planning stages yet, it's still just a concept that's slowly coalescing in my mind. In the past concepts have coalesced so slowly that they ran out of my ears before they could completely coalesce, I hope that doesn't happen to this concept because I feel it's a good one.
