Wow what a week it has been! We ended up going on vacation earlier then expected and spent an amazing 8 days in Silverton Colorado. A week full of off-roading in RubiRed our Jeep and taking on some of the more challenging obstacles that came our way. From Blackbear to Kendell Mountain we saw some amazing views and maybe needed a fresh pair of undies or two! Unfortunately now it is back to the reality of life and trying to survive.
