It was a great weekend to be in Steamboat Colorado. Saturday was beautiful and with the snow on the top of the mountain and the sunny skies, it was tough to figure out whether to go skiing on the pass, or get a bike ride in. I opted for the bike ride with my buddy Hans and about 15 miles from town I broke my chain on a quiet country road. I thought I was stranded as neither one of us had a chain tool, but as happens in Steamboat, the two riders that came upon us, Paul and Eric, were bike mechanics. Paul who works at Erickson Cycles and Orange Peel ignored my pleas to do the dirty work and had it fixed so quick it made me feel like rider in the Tour de France.
Halloween was a blast as usual with Main Street closed and families out in full regal. Some great costumes and lots of friends with their kids out Trick or Treating.
There was a great article in the Sunday Steamboat Pilot about vacant lots starting to sell in the steamboat real estate market. That has been the worst category for property sales over the past 2 years. I can feel the momentum starting to swing and some of my well respected aquaintances are beginning to pick up properties for investment.
