Welcome to the forum. I wouldn't say I'm close, but I live in NW Nebraska so not terribly far. I usually drive through Laramie a couple times a year as my wife has some relatives in NW Colorado. My in-laws went to the Utah-Wyoming game this last weekend, well most of it They had to leave before they started yelling profanities at Joe Glenn like everybody else.

I bet there is some great trails to walk through Fox Park. Did they convert the railway into trails there? It was very sickening to see how much beetle kill was happening in Fox Park, they're going to loose about 80% of the trees is my guess.

There was another new member on here from Laramie. Wyogirl is looking for a golden in that area.

I unfortunately was at the UW-Utah game. Dixie grew up around the time I was still playing football. She is very good at shagging the footballs, as I used to be a placekicker for a semi-pro team when I was still in Nashville.

I have done the rail trails through fox park. They have done a really nice job converting them into some great biking, horse, hiking trails. We did 25 miles of biking a couple weekends ago on them. The problem i hear with the pine beetle, is that the winters aren't cold enough anymore to kill them off and control the population of them like they used to.

oh and btw. I hear Joe Glenn will be announcing his resignation real soon! "Joe Must Go!"

Welcome to the forum! Not many people in Iowa, either and we also enjoy the outdoors in all seasons. I could wait a while for winter though.....

Still crazy after all these years.
