WOULD be cool to meet the famous Rabid Dingo Dog in the flesh,
I am not going to be near enough Durango town on that date to meet.
However, it should be a great time to visit Durango;
seems that the hordes of Texans and Tourons have begun to dissipate.
Would be cool to have a TR (trip report) of your findings!
Should you ever find the ability to travel north through Silver town (via train to sample Sean's wit)
and then head north over the Red Mountain,
there is the pub/brewery crawl of Ouray (your-RAY for you outa staters)
on to Colorado Boy
and then up to the Gunny brewery of Gunnison
before heading over the ridge of Monarch to the east slope.
It is all the great state of Colorado.
