It cooled off today and only got into the mid-80s, which felt pretty good compared to the 90s we've been having for the last couple of weeks. One things for sure about Colorado the hot weather doesn't last long, the cold does, but not the hot.
I've been giving some thought about whether or not I want to go to the next Hill climb race which is in Grand Junction Colorado, around the 10th of August.
I had a good time at the last race in Monarch, and I assume it would be the same in Grand Junction. But Grand Junction is a 250 mile drive for me, and about 97% of the drive would be just cruising down I-70 which is actually kind of boring for most of the way. It's got some scenic parts but I've made that drive so many times it's not very interesting for me.
Back years ago when Las Vegas was more entertaining, and I enjoyed shoveling money into video poker machines I would make the trip to Las Vegas two or three times a year. And the quickest way to get there was going across Colorado on I-70.
I no longer have much interest in Las Vegas and it's been a while since I made the trip across Colorado on I-70. On my shakedown cruise in the little Bronco last month Vail Colorado was as far west as I got on I-70 so maybe the drive to Grand Junction wouldn't be as boring as I think it would.
The race drivers that I talked to at Monarch described the Grand Junction Hill climb as a spectator's race, because of all the great locations there are to watch the race. That sounds good to me because of the increased opportunity to get more action pictures. Apparently the Grand Junction Hill climb is not as heavily forested as the Monarch Hill climb so more of the course is visible to the spectators.
At the moment I'm leaning towards going to Grand Junction, but a lot depends on what's going on here in Denver at that time, so as usual I probably won't make up my mind into the last minute which is one of the many good things about being an RVer, and especially a boondocking RVer.
