How about this??? (Colorado amenity)

Peak Provisions!! They'll stock the frige/kitchen for us in Colorado! (and it isn't very expenisive!)

My thoughts are just the basics so we have something to eat, without having to go right out and shop, after being on the road all day (like staying at the beach - argh). Those of staying with me, let me have your preferences!

Bottled water - 1 case? 2 cases?
Breakfast stuff - bagels, (english) muffins, jam, juice, COFFEE, tea, (Milk?), creamer.
>We can "pocket" equal/spenda, etc on our travels, huh?
"Munchees" - veggie sticks, fruit, Ranch dip, hummus, chips, salsa, etc.

WINE (red or white, ya'll?) - I prefer the "BLACK BOX" wines. Really good quality. Not a lot of money. One box = 5 bottles of wine for $24.
Beer (check their list - pick TWO?)

I'm figuring that for $150 or less we can have this taken care of for us! (Alcohol extra).

>>How about we arrange to meet at the Keystone Lodge on the 18th? (in the evening, of course). They've got like 16 different restaurants in there. Ida Belle's sounds low key enough to suit, but I haven't been able to find a review. I'm open to suggestions!!

I could not find a reataurant called Ida Belle's. There is a street named that with a lot of restaurants. Some of them have reviews. However...I don't know when the reviews were made.

With any luck CC and I will be there to join you for dinner. :)

Note..Jay's cafe is gone but replaced by a Moon something...?? It had good reviews for breakfast and lunch...

Also...this looks like fun....I have no idea what to expect there or what the activities are....so....I've been looking to see what is offered at keystone.

As a suggestion for all of you low-landers... lol
I've seen a lot of people from lower elevations get altitude sickness from not drinking enough water. You should all go through a case of water each in all probability. Also if you feel lightheaded, dizzy, have a headache, woozy, etc. immediately drink water and sit down for a few minutes.

I full expect to have a headache. When I go visit my friends who live in the interior, I always have a headache the first day.

So, how long does it usually take to adapt?

I've been perusing Peak Provisions. I'm up for coffee, appetizer/munchies, and breakfast foods. Oh, and 2 cases of water. No wine for me, thanks! :wink:

Hopefully, less than four days.:blink:

:laughing: It should take most people about a day or two. I've always been lucky and had no problem adjusting to altitude changes, so I can't tell you for sure, but from what I hear it's usually less than 2 full days.

I knew there was a good reason to arrive a day early!!

My Garmin maps list Ida Belle's, along with about a dozen other restaurants IN the Conference Center/Lodge (I've had a devil of a time finding the relative location of ANY of the food places in relation to the Conference Center.) As I recall, it isn't uncommon for a resort facility to have many different dining options on campus... the better to ensure you spend your money with them, while you stay :wink:

When you pick one, can you email them a reservation under TMW...if you don't mind? It would be cool if we could all meet for dinner.

LL, as good as it sounds, I just can't spend cash for the sake of convenience. As stated before, I'd be very happy to take a grocery list and go shopping FOR US ALL right away as soon as there was access to the room, I actually like doing this kind of thing. I always refill my water from the tap and eat out of a tank bag except for supper, which is usually a fresh salad and good complex carbs.

You've likely never hung out with a more Spartan woman rider than me (who still elects to bathe, there ARE those)... :? !

So...I probably won't jump on the wagon for the folks who will stock the room for ya, but I WILL gladly and reliably go shopping for us gals...and I LOVE box wine! Franzia, the first and BEST!

I'm planning on rolling out a day early to give myself time to acclimate to the altitude. I did this same ride in June of last year, and yes it took a day of hanging out and drinking water to get the headaches out. So it's worth it to me to show up early and so I can be there, rested and ready, when you guys arrive and I can get groceries or not, whatever you other women want. You couldn't ask for an easier-to-please woman than me.

I don't have to, I already married her.

Just sayin'.

So, coffee, you aren't meeting up with Lion Lady and me in St. Louis?? :confused:

+1 :confused:

I'm leaving on Saturday from Baltimore. I've got the ride broken into 3 overnights for me. The first one (Saturday night) west of Cinnicnatti (where I'll connect with MZ33), then @ St. Louis on Sunday night (where we'd expected to connect with you) and Monday night outside Kansass City (where I may have lodgings for all 3 of us with a fellow rider).

Our planned arrival will be in Keystone late on Tuesday.

If ya'll like, I would love to ride back East with you, but I have to stop in Arkansas and it's going to become more miles than I can work to hit you both up...right now.

Because of the rush to work on the bike, I haven't even considered a map yet, I just got started tonight and I'm really feeling rushed. I hate rushing.
:x

May change it all yet again...I'm really glad the bike's running but I sure wish it was running a week ago....
