Welcome to the forum, [CPRMan] / [Vintage Goose]. How long were you in Denver?
In my first youth, as a hitchhiker, I spent two winters there - I swore each one would be my last. A woman I was keeping company with some years later asked me to move there, and that was the end of that
It's a nice place if you own a car...I had some fun times hitching to work in the ice and snow.
