The Travelin Man
In Idaho Springs, I bypass the Buffalo....
So, you are saying that you are FROM Maryland, but go to Idaho Springs? This greatly contradicts what our pal wanderingjew has been telling us - here in this post. Let me quote for those who don't want to click the link....
It's entirely doubtful that an out of state tourist would find Idaho Springs, even if the entire town landed on their head...
Can you describe the feeling of an entire town landing on your head? I'd always wondered what that would be like.
"doubtful" is the key phrase
Is Beer n Snausages the "typical tourist"?
Is he originally from Colorado?
Does he have family and friends in Colorado that might have directed him there?
I took a quick survey of 5 well traveled co-workers and asked them if they've heard of Idaho Springs CO- Here are their responses...
Terry- "no, maybe, I don't think so, maybe"
Bob- (in his 60's)- "no, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist"
Patty- "no, i don't think so, why, is it a popular place?"
Kristen- "yes, but I don't know anything about it, my brother lived in Colorado"
Lisa (originally from Nebraska) " no, must be a little hole in the wall"
only 1 out of 5 coworkers have heard of Idaho Springs and the only reason why is becaus her brother lived in Colorado.
again...Idaho Springs is not Denver, Boulder or even Vail...It's a place where local Denverites go for a day trip. I don't even recall seeing any brochures for it at the hotel we were at.
