well, if you knew Kremmling, then you would understand why :) However, its about an hour to the boat, and that includes this little thing called Rabbit ears pass..... All is fine when the pass is fine, and when it ain't fine. you aren't fine. It is still about 1.5 hours to Vail and an hour to WP.
Aaahhhh, Kremmling or Leadville ... just jump right on into the deep end, right? Go west young man.
