This blog was an idea I had just by observing my surrounds. So much of the home ownership was second home ownership. Some lucky devils had amazing features of location. Near Sunlight, or Near Storm King, downtown Glenwood, near the river, with views, with acreage the incredible locations never cease to amaze.
At the same time, I noticed a transportation fail afflicting the entire Valley. Uber and Lyft just don’t fit with the local cost of living. The commercial transportation options are crazy expensive. So, a better rideshare platform was needed. Cheaper than taxi or transport companies, more livable wages than Uber or Lyft. How could I start a site that filled this void?
More voids: Doing errands while on vacation or during just a several month stay is a waste of time. Concierge services a la carte are needed. How can I help?
Sure there are lots of trail tracking and outdoors related apps. But the are almost impossible to use when in the real outdoors because of the way that wifi and the mountains go together like fish and bikes. Handheld gps are so much more fun. Man I love camping, and shopping for camping gear.
I love living here because every weekend I go on an adventure that just would not have been possible in any other epoch of my life, in any other environment beside the Roaring Fork Valley and Western Slope. Rafting, fly fishing, horseback riding, skiing, snowmobiling, ATVing, camping — these are adventures of a lifetime and they are Right Here.
So, I went about it. Making a website that would show off everything there is to do, everything that makes the Roaring Fork Valley and Western Slope so incredible. I have a page on each community I adore and serve, and one on each activity I find incredible. Get Outside, Hit the Trails, Dine and Drink it In, Spotlight on Small Business, Community Matters, and Historical Tales and True Stories.
Find your vacation rental, plan your activities, go get your Western Slope Adventures.
The offerings include concierge services, a local platform for rideshare, vacation rental advertising, and guided activity advertising.
