    Markie & 11Top go to Colorado............

    My Buddy PhennRock & Myself went to visit Hansomatic a couple of weeks ago. PhennRock took this picture just a couple of miles from the Hansomatic Estate!




    Nice work Phenny!

    Nice shot! What did you guys do besides rock out and take pics? Sounds like a fun trip.

    Went Hiking, went to Wildwood Guitars, watched Steve try on Hats, went to Breckenridge, played every Guitar Hans owns, ate a bunch of food that was bad for us, took a Train to the top of Pikes Peak, ate dinner at The Broadmoor, drove around in the mountains on some "not so safe" dirt roads, & last but not least............... got to hang out with my good friend Eden 'O' Matic for a few hours!

    Someday I'm going to visit again.

    I loved that drive up Pike's Peak. It was a white-knuckled drive down when it started snowing. At least it was before they started putting in the guard rails.

    Wouldn't that be cool?

    Here's a photo of Steve taking the photo above (click to enlarge). That's Markie up on the bridge. Pretty sure Steve got mooned at one point. We're so mature.

    At one point, someone dared someone else to get into the creek. I'm not saying who. All you need to know is there is one guy who volunteered to stay behind and take a photo that proved we did it. This is run-off from the snowy mountain tops a couple miles upstream. I'm still trying to shake my balls out of my abdomen. We were seconds away from going hypothermic. Good thing I'm fat.

    Very cool. Been a long time since I was there - since my sister-in-law bailed on the state before we made a second trip. Didn't get to go up Pike's Peak (to my disappointment - that was a 'next trip' plan because we ran out of time at Garden Of The Gods), but we did get to Seven Falls.

    So that's how it is in your family.

    That just looks like so much fun!

    I spoke with a longstanding guitar playing buddy today about taking a trip to Nashville or Austin, but he didn't seem very enthusiastic, so I guess that's not gonna happen.

    I loved Austin when I played SXSW, but it's been several years. Been a few years since Nashville, too. I want to go back to both places.

    The Hansomatic Hounds are the best pooches in the universe. I miss my buds, Roxie and Hank!!!




    And most well-behaved. Hans has done a heck of a job training his pups.
