Welcome from a fellow Colorado Cruiser Wannabee

You'll like it here. Very helpful, informative and entertaining bunch of folks. We took our first sail on Dillon Reservoir. Then bought a 30 year old leaky trailer sailer with wrung out sails and taught ourselves a few things over the summer. Will head to Blue Mesa this summer for more fun in the sun. Eventually plan to sell the south 40 and head to warmer climes as well. Best wishes to you both.

Welcome to the forum welder guy...from what I've seen on the weather reports, you've gotten 20 years worth of snow in just the last couple weeks.
