Monte’s Colorado Ranch is a mystical place to which Monte disappears occasionally. There he engages in an exercise that he calls “trying to get a building permit.” He regales Storm and me with tales of his construction plans and his ongoing battle to move that project forward. After giving him a few days to get ready for us, we leave T or C and go back through Albuquerque to Colorado for a visit.
Our directions are clear – follow the interstate. At Monte’s exit, turn left on the dirt road and go past the line of mailboxes on the left. Follow the dirt road for seven miles or until we see Monte’s ATV leading us into his driveway. As asphalt disintegrates to gravel, Storm pulls over to install his self-designed air intake “pre-filter.” This precaution should help protect our engine from the dust cloud chasing us relentlessly to the ranch.
We are excited to spend a few days exploring the area around Pueblo with Monte as our guide. If you read my previous posts about visits with Monte, you know his tours mingle just the right amount of scenery with the most mouth watering local cuisine. Enjoy this video of Storm parking the big rig at the ranch. Please forgive the view through the bug covered windshield. Prepare to be amazed as Storm squeezes our huge RV into a very tight space!
