Boston has old timey charm in certain parts, but in others it's a crumbling shit hole. I'm sure you could say this about most cities though.

Seriously, I was last in Beantown 3 years ago, and it wasn't a pretty site. There was a lot of construction going on and the roads were a tremendous cluster****.

Well Boston is always good for a race riot, a massacre or a tea party. I suppose bad moods and Boston go together like peas and carrots.

August for Boston....October for San Diego.

Boston sucks, but it's not a bad place to visit once. I visited once for 4 months. Couldn't wait to leave.

I voted Sandy Eggo even though I've been quite a bit.

Steamy hot Boston in August, or San Diego in October, where it's sure to be 80 and perfect every day.

I like Boston plenty (obviously, since I'm from here), but unless you've never been and REALLY want to catch a Red Sox game or something, I think I'd take SD in Oct over Boston in August.

I picked San Diego,if for nothing else,maybe a good story from Black's Beach.Not somewhere I think you would be interested in anymore. Pretty sure that other than a voyuerist POV Jenny would not enjoy it anymore either as the interest in her would be virtually nil. Pretty much a gay male hangout for several years now. Used to be it was pretty hetero on weekends but I have heard from some of the younger folks I work with that it is pretty much not the case anymore. Was always too dangerous to negotiate the Cliff path down for this old man anyways.

Besides as you and I both know, Earthquakes are pretty fun to experience here in San Diego. Never any damage, it is always sort of like a unexpect mini-ride. I actually find them enjoyable to experience, there are so many different types to experience. The movies do a horrible job of portraying them. I have seen the floor roll like a wave, the sharp bang where you really feel nothing but the glass makes a sharp bang it is so short and sharp, the trembling several second variety, rumbling type where it is more noise than motion. The swaying type where the whole building seems to sway right or left, or front to back. We are lucky that we don't seem to get the catastrophic variety. The chances of actually experiencing one in San Diego while a person is visiting is actually pretty remote as the most I can remember in a single year is about 5 and they seem to be spaced randomly across the year. It is not like there is an earthquake season, like there is a tornado season.

I definitely agree about the weather in August... I moved into my dorm in Cambridge (5 min walk to Boston) and it was pretty nasty, and the driving is even worse. That said, the T is very accessible/painless and is a huge plus if you're not planning to rent a car.

HemiEd
07-11-2005, 09:22 AM
I do trade shows in both towns each year. It makes a big difference what time of year you are going. I love Boston in the summer for a few days, leave your "r"s at home. I was just there in May, a lot of the construction is finally getting finished. I love the food there, and the culture is all by itself.
San Diego is a nice place , I usually go in January. Sea food choices are good there as well. It is much more laid back than Boston.

I left your coffee at Dunkin Donuts sorry, and I was thinking about the whole bike messanger thing, saw two on my travels and it looked like they rode through a sprinkler. The worst has to be the construction workers on the Congress Street Bridge welding new steel conections. They look like they are gonna die.

Humidity is tough. After living in Denver for 10+ years, it's hard for me to go to hot, humid places. It gets hot here, but we really only need air conditioning a couple of weeks a year, and even then our humidity is so low that makes it much more tolerable anyway.

Are you staying in Denver? If so, expect mid-90s during the day and low to mid 60s during the evening/overnight.

Oh, and brief thunderstorms are common in the afternoons.

I'm going to be here and there,Colorado City,Pueblo etc.I'm looking for something to do while the mrs and her sisters go to a race.

Funny you'd mention that when the trip first came about I asked the mrs wtf am I supposed to do while you guys are off Nascarin'.She told me I should just park and take in the beauty for 6+ hours opposed to worrying about finding a bar.

Eh, Colorado Springs has some great bars....with scenery as good or better than what's at the top of Pike's Peak...

Well, the little "nip" in the air can make things interesting there though... :hmmm:

Think they'd mind if I brought along my DVD of the 1994 MNF game with Montana and Elway? :D

There's nothing to do in Pueblo. Nothing with a capital N. If you had six hours and you were in Colorado Springs, I'd definitely recommend taking the cog railroad to the top of Pike's Peak. The problem is, Colorado Springs is 70 or 80 miles from Pueblo. Honestly, everything is 70 or 80 miles from Pueblo.

Like RM said, I'd recommend taking the cog railway to the summit of Pike's Peak. Also, check out Garden of the Gods if you're into that kind of thing.

Probably not, because then they'd just pull-out the 1997 Playoff game at Arrowhead..... :banghead:

I just asked the mrs and apparently the race is at Pike's Peak Speedway?So it sounds as though I may just follow them in and break off from there.

Holy crap, I am a friggen mess. I may just go home and shower.

I left your coffee at Dunkin Donuts sorry, and I was thinking about the whole bike messanger thing, saw two on my travels and it looked like they rode through a sprinkler. The worst has to be the construction workers on the Congress Street Bridge welding new steel conections. They look like they are gonna die. No better feeling then wearing jeans on a day like this and doing manual labor.

No need to shower. Just hold your shirt up above your head and wring it out. 'bout the same thing. Well, other than the fact that it's your own sweat as opposed to fresh, clean water...

Hey thanks for the coffee. I'll go pick it up right after lunch.

Yeah, I forgot about construction workers. Any kind of outdoor manual laborer is definitely seriously underpaid today...

Oh. Check that. My mistake. Colorado Springs is only about 45 miles from Pueblo. I always mix up the distances between the Springs, Pueblo, and the state border.

You still can't make it to the top of Pike's Peak and back in six hours, but you could come close.

If you ride it, remember that the temperature at the summit is approximately 30 degrees cooler than at the station.

No problem. I rode it the weekend we moved out here. It was 68 at Manitou and 34 at the summit with 30 mph winds. It was unpleasant, but the views are tremendous.

F*ck me, this sucks. It is so humid outside right now that you can actualy wipe the moisture off my body. Its no even sweat, its the air. I can't breathe, the air is so thick I'm choking.

Wow. You should write copy for the Boston Board of Tourism.
