Sorry I haven't been around much. Busy with both jobs (anyone ever lost 750GB of data on a RAID array?) and some other things. The garage fire last night didn't help (a post on that in a bit). I'm good to go for driving out there Wednesday, Sept. 2nd and coming back either Sunday the 6th or Monday the 7th.

As for plans, I have to get back to Stranahan's to pick up some whiskey, and since they do tours on Thursday's, that would probably be best. I'd still like to get to at least one of the breweries out there and another mountain drive would be fun. The three major breweries are all open Tues-Sat, so Friday would probably be a good day for that. Not sure if we could work a drive in Firday or if it would be better to do that Sunday. What does everyone's schedules look like for that weekend, if you know yet?

I got your PM but it got lost yesterday...I replied but I don't know if you got it or not. I work Wed - Sat that week which is good! I get off at 9 am in Longmont but I live by DIA. If you want to make plans with the guys for Saturday, then we could go down and see Sean on Sunday. Visiting is from 9:30 - 2:30. We usually make it by 10:15. Depending on traffic (glad it's not Labor Day Weekend!), we should make it back to Denver by 4:30 or 5 pm.

You'll basically have the house to yourself at night since I'll be at work, but the dogs will be happy for the company. Dave (el chicano) lives close by so he can maybe come over and hang out with you. Eric and Sze Lin should have some idea of their plans, I think they might have her moved out here by then. He's in Malaysia with no puter or iphone so we'll have to wait until he gets back to see what's going on with them.

We have a new guy in Stapleton (Jeff), who is bringing his Ti down from Canada. We should invite him on a drive and see if he'd like to go. I'll PM him this link and see what he says. Zippy is still out of commission, Eric hasn't had time to fix the sunroof, he has been a busy guy all summer...so I don't think Zippy will be going anywhere. Too dangerous with the sunroof half open and our crazy weather.

I'm good for those days off, so I'll be driving out there Wednesday and driving home Monday. Sounds like going to visit Sean would work out better on Sunday? If that's the case I'm sure we could find something to do. For some reason I just looked and I see the Rockies are in town playing the Diamondbacks. Looks like plenty of tickets available, and they won't break the bank like tickets at Yankees Stadium.

Edit: So, as much as I love beer and whiskey, I'm not an alcoholic, and I know there's more to Denver than just microbrews/brewpubs. I'm going to e-mail Jake at Stranahan's in the morning. They recently moved to a new location (the old Heavenly Daze brewpub near I-25 & Alameda Ave) and are not currently open for tours. I *have* to get there to buy some special whiskey, and if there's interest I can probably get us a tour if they're still not open yet.

Is there a Denver tourism website? I briefly thought about the Gateway Colorado Automobile Museum (they bought the '54 Olds F-88 Motorama car at auction for $3.24mil a few years back), but it's a 5-hour one-way drive. That'll have to happen some other time. I could always bring my 360 out with me as well (I've got Gears, Halo 3, pretty much all the standard racing games, Rock Band 1/2, and a bunch of others). About six weeks to go, so no real rush, but I'm the kind of person that hates not having things planned out.

Justin - send another visiting app. Sean hasn't heard anything so he thinks they either didn't get it or it was rejected for some reason. Did you send a copy of your driver's license with it? Anyway the plans are good with us so send in your app again ok? :smile:

Borg561 08-03-2009 04:27 PM

Yup, sent a copy of my license with it. Does it need to be a color copy or does B&W suffice? For the address, do I need to just use the PO Box, or do I need the 15125 Highway 24 & 285 as well? Think I just put the PO Box # on it last time.

milehigh96caliti 08-03-2009 04:31 PM

The PO Box works fine. The copy can be either one. It may have just gotten lost in the mail or something. Send it off today and they'll have it by Wednesday and then he should know something in a couple of weeks.

Borg561 08-07-2009 12:30 AM

Got it sent off Tuesday morning. I had a tattoo appointment after work Monday and didn't have time to get to the post office. Could I call them to see if they actually received the app or is that something they'd tell Sean?

Gonna see about setting us up for a tour of New Belgium up in Fort Collins on Friday. Talked with a marketing guy a few weeks ago and he said he could try and get us on one of the VIP tours. Got a friend in Colorado Springs that for sure will go, so I'll tell him 2 definates, and possibly as many as 6 (you, Dave, Eric & his wife as the others).


milehigh96caliti 08-10-2009 05:24 AM

They got it and you're approved! Sean told me today when I went to seen him. YAY! We'll hit up Dave and Eric. Eric's in Chicago this week working...I'll IM him tomorrow and see what's going on. I definitely have to work Thursday and Friday so I can't do the tour and I'm sad! But glad you're finally approved to visit!

elchicano 08-11-2009 12:12 AM

Hello guys, it's been a while. Well I'm not 100% sure if i'll be able to join you guys. As of right now my work schedule is all wacked out. I'll let you guys know when we get closer to the date. Also i talked to clay and he seems to be pretty busy too.

cali-ti 08-11-2009 01:50 AM

My wife, Sze Lin, and I should be in the area, but I'm using the last of my vacation moving her from NJ to CO in August, so I won't be able to do a brewery tour during the week :( We'd certainly be up for a group visit for Sean though!

milehigh96caliti 08-11-2009 02:25 AM

Cool! I really need a head count by Thursday at the latest. If more than 3 adults go he has to request a special visit and he has to list everyone on the request. Justin, Eric, Sze Lin and I make 4 already...Dave if you're going, then we have to add you. Sept. 6th is Labor Day weekend...Sunday...does that help your work schedule any? I hope you can spend a little time with Justin over the weekend, he might be bored with just me! We can definitely go up to Mead and hang out with Eric and Sze Lin on Saturday when I get home from work.

Lemme know k?

elchicano 08-11-2009 02:46 AM

Umm I not really sure i think i might be in nebraska during the labor day weekend. So what day you got to know by sept 4th?

milehigh96caliti 08-11-2009 03:37 AM

He has to put in the special request 14 days prior. It's almost the middle of the month so he should prolly put it in this coming Friday.

elchicano 08-11-2009 11:19 PM

well count me out then i don't want you guys to do extra paper work and in the end for me not to show up, again. So yeah if I don't go I'll do a drive with you guys or something. I still got that car cover to give you cindy and i have a haynes repair manual you can have as well. There may also be something else i might be delivering depending what sean writes back. ha!

elchicano 08-11-2009 11:21 PM

oh yeah i have a question, do any of you guys know if i can make it possible for the Roundel magazine to be delivered to sean instead of me. I don't read them and i know he would get a kick out of them.
