    Let’s talk about the weather.

    For all who are effected, how are the monsoons treating you?

    I’m so sick of rain. Especially, since I decided to run my Jeep topless all year. I know it’s a stupid thing to do when living in Colorado at 8000ft, but I like to challenge myself.

    It’s part of me being a modern mountain man. Back in the day the mountain men just had horses and mules. They didn’t have tops. 😀

    There’s no turning back now. I gave my top and doors to a young guy who just bought a Jeep that didn’t have a top/doors. It would cost me $2000 to buy it again, and that isn’t going to ever happen. So, i’m Topless Pete now.

    No destruction from PM thunderstorms here, thankfully. Unless you count allergies, which are in high gear thanks to long-dormant weeds sprouting everywhere.

    And a desert dog who sees rain so rarely he’s afraid to go out in it and do his business. Thunder doesn’t bother him, but it could be raining battery acid and he wouldn’t want to avoid it more.

    A dog that’s not afraid of thunderstorms, but afraid of rain. That’s somewhat new to me.

    Creek, I think you’re awesome man, but you big dummy, what were you thinking? You better hope winter shows you some mercy.

    We have had afternoon storms. Friday we had a small storm roll in with really bad wind. Some tree’s have broken branches, fences took a good hit along with some street signs.

    They are calling for temps in the 70’s this week with rain. Maybe it’ll be a positive thing for the fishing.

    I’ll laugh at winter through chattering teeth. :)

    Creek: I’m not sure the horses and mules of yesteryear had as many electronics and moving parts that are affected by moisture and rust. Keep us posted.

    That’s true. I wonder every time I get in the Jeep if it’s going to start. It’s been in some good thunderstorms and is still kicking. Time will tell.

    One thing that happens that I haven’t found a cure for yet. Driving in the rain the wiper clear the windshield of course. However, they only clear the outside of it. The rain curls over the top of the windshield and hits the inside too. I have no way to keep the rain off the inside of the glass. I could lay the windshield down, but then i’d get a faceful. I’d have to wear goggles and that would look silly. I’m still working on that problem. Maybe a small squeegee will work.

    Is that only because its a soft shell, or does it also happen with a hard top?

    It wouldn’t happen with any top on the Jeep. I don’t have any kind of top or doors on the Jeep Scotty.

    Like this.

    I remember you saying you gave the top and doors to someone who didn’t have any. For some reason I thought you meant when you still had a top. That’s why I mentioned both styles. My bad.

    I have a question about the Ark. Where does the lower and upper section of the river meet, is it Salida? Or is the lower section down by Canon City to Pueblo?

    It’s in Salida. If what you’re talking about is what they call the small Ark. It’s just a creek. I’ve fished it right behind ArkAnglers store in Salida. It was private land owned by the owner of ArkAnglers.

    The heat in Vegas is now bearable compared to last month.

    The weather was tough, but definitely, we’re safe now.
