I surprised my son with a visit to Denver to watch baseball at the Coors Field

My son loved everything about baseball.

It was a fun pastime we shared ever since he could hold a ball and glove in his hand.

We’d spend hours talking about our favorite teams and watch different matches on TV. At home, we attended many matches and loved the competitive atmosphere. But I knew my son wanted to tour different places and see other teams play. So, for his thirteenth birthday last year, I planned a surprise for him. We were going to fly to Denver, Colorado, and watch some games at the famous Coors Field. When I gave him his gift, he almost knocked me down, giving me the biggest hug ever. I saw he was fighting back the tears as he thanked me profusely. He was ecstatic to see the Colorado Rockies play. The day of departure came, and he was ready to go hours before our flight. We flew into Denver on a lovely summer afternoon and were greeted by the July heat. We stayed with a friend of mine who was also taking his son to see the games. Their home was in a beautiful area and had a sound HVAC system to keep us cool during the visit. We woke up early the following morning to get to the stadium on time. There were thousands of people attending the match, given that the Coors field could hold 50000 people. My son and his friend were beyond happy, and we all had a merry time cheering for our favorite players. Later we went to the Interactive center, where we got a chance to test our skills in video batting cages. We all got such a kick from all these activities and had a great father-son bonding moment.

Visiting Larimer Square in Denver, CO

My parents were not entirely happy with my decision to take time off college.

It had only been a year, but I felt strongly I was not doing what I wanted to do.

So, I planned to leave college and travel for some time. I found myself in many unique places in the country. Last summer, my adventures took me to Denver, Colorado. I could not wait to behold the mighty rocky mountains that we had learned in high school. I flew into the state and found a nice place to stay. My mom had made me promise not to take significant risks with the places I visited during my travels. She worried about a lone female traveler and called me every day. I got a lovely budget hotel and booked a room to stay. It was so hot outside so imagine my relief when I realized they had an excellent cooling unit in the rooms. In addition, there was a room fan if I needed to use it when I was indoors. That evening I went out for a stroll and found a place to have some dinner. The actual exploration would start the next day, and the top of my list of places to visit was the famous Larimer Square. The area was one of the most visited in Denver and was founded back in 1858. A bunch of native Indian guys had come across an excellent gold deposit, and word spread. Soon many people streamed to the location to try their luck, which led to settlements coming up. The city of Denver developed around Larimer square. My guidebook suggested this area as the best place to start my tour of the lovely Denver city. I was so excited and headed there early the following morning.

Humidity is a problem in the winter.

I couldn’t believe how humid it was when we got to Spokane, WA. My friend had invited me to spend Christmas in his house. The house was located near Manito Park in Spokane, WA. Mom came to Spokane with me, and she brought a friend with her. Her friend couldn’t believe how humid it was, and that’s all she kept saying. She wanted to get inside where there was good heating and not so humid. I couldn’t understand why mom liked her so much. I thought the woman was an oddball and she talked too much, but I didn’t have to spend my time with her. I was going to be on Mt. Spokane with Bill. When we got to Mt. Spokane, I realized I was overdressed. We hadn’t even walked a mile when I had sweat rolling down between my shoulder blades. I didn’t want to complain because it was such a beautiful hiking area, and I was with Bill. He must have noticed my discomfort because he asked if I wanted to go back. I told him I wasn’t tired, it was just that I hadn’t expected humidity in the winter. He told me that they didn’t have any humidity in the summer, so it was a good trade-off. I asked him if they had a dehumidifier in their heating system, and a humidifier in the air conditioning? He laughed at me. He wasn’t sure about the HVAC, but it was comfortable in the house all year round. I apologized for the questions, but my dad was an HVAC technician. The rest of our time in Spokane, WA was so much fun, that we didn’t even notice the humidity.

Traveling back to Albuquerque after living several states north during undergrad

Although I grew up in Albuquerque and graduated from West Mesa High School, I was desperate to leave the state when I moved further north for college.

Although it has a rich history and Native American culture, many people fail to realize that Albuquerque is in the middle of the desert in New Mexico. You can drive to the mountains on the outskirts of town, but the city itself is on desert land. With so many excruciatingly hot summers in New Mexico, I was excited for cooler weather up north. I would have never expected to miss the heat in Albuquerque after being away for several years. When I graduated from college, I started looking for jobs in Albuquerque so I could move back to my hometown and be near my friends and family again. Since cannabis was recently legalized statewide in New Mexico, I was even more eager to get back to the city than I would be to begin with. In recent years I have read about the various Native American tribes located through the city, including the several Apache tribes and the Navajo Nation. Old Town Albuquerque is dominated by shops and businesses owned by various Native American locals who live in the city. There are caves east of the city where you can see prehistoric stone art that has been preserved for tens of thousands of years. If you want entertainment, you can catch a concert at the Sunshine Theater, which was originally Albuquerque’s very first movie theater when it was opened in 1924. I’m proud of Albuquerque and it’s rich history, both culturally and anthropologically.

Recreational Marijuana Shop Albuquerque New Mexico

Just when I thought I was done for the day

Ever since weed was legalized in the state of New Mexico, I’ve been going to the dispensary every Friday after work.

The marijuana shop delivers, but I like to look at the selection and the specials.

They don’t always post the specials online. Prices on medical and recreational marijuana have dropped by thirty percent since weed was legalized for everyone last month. For pot smokers like my friend and I that is really great news. I work for a really busy plumbing company in downtown Albuquerque. Everyday I work from 8am until the jobs are completed. Sometimes we aren’t very busy and I might be done by 3pm. Other days, I am swamped with plumbing repair calls and I don’t get home until 8pm. My girlfriend always finds this schedule to be impossible, because we can’t make any afternoon plans ahead of time. I was working on a plumbing issue for a large restaurant in downtown Albuquerque last Friday. I was finishing up and thought I would be headed over to the dispensary before the happy hour sale was over. I was excited to be done on a Friday before 6pm. I should have known better. Right as I was pulling out of the parking garage, I got a call from my boss. There was one more repair call on the schedule and I was the first person finished. I thought I would make it to the sale on time, but I was wrong. I had to settle for paying full price instead of saving 20% on the entire purchase.

Busch Gardens can be a fun day in winter

My family and I live in a suburb outside of Tampa Florida.

  • One of our favorite things to do on a winter day is go to Busch Gardens.

Busch Gardens is a safari themed amusement park made for families to enjoy. A lot of people visit Busch Gardens in Tampa when they come to Florida for summer vacation. In my opinion, summer is the worst time to visit any Florida tourist attraction. First of all, most places are extremely busy during the summer season. Kids are out of school and parents are taking vacations. The second reason why summer is the worst time to visit places like Busch Gardens in Tampa is because of the Heat and the humidity. There is no access to air conditioning once you are inside the amusement park. The only places with air conditioning are the restaurants and gift shops. None of the ride lines are in an area with air conditioning, so you are forced to stand in line for 1 or 2 hours in 95° temperatures with 95% humidity. Most kids aren’t expecting Busch Gardens or any other theme park to be a miserable experience, so add complaining and whining children to the day. Those are the biggest reasons why I don’t prefer to visit the theme parks during the summer. The weather in Tampa during the winter season is actually quite mild and cool. In my humble opinion, this is the perfect time to hang out with friends and relax at one of the many Tampa Bay tourist attractions like Busch Gardens.

Moving to Tampa was unavoidable

We might have lived there a little bit longer, but we were staying in the garage where there was no Central AC.

When my wife and I met in college, she told me that she planned to graduate and go back home to Tampa, Florida. I always hoped she would change her mind and stay in Colorado, but she missed her mom and her friends. When both of us graduated, I had to make a difficult decision. My girlfriend wanted me to move to Tampa with her, but I knew life was going to be drastically different if I moved to Tampa, Florida. I thought about the decision for weeks, but ultimately I could not say goodbye to my girlfriend so I decided to move to the Florida tourist destination. My girlfriend and I When my girlfriend and I arrived, we stayed with her mom and dad. I was thankful for a cheap place to stay, but I told my girlfriend that I did not want to live there for a long time. I started looking for a job and so did my girlfriend. We lived in her parents house for 5 months and then we found a place of our own. We might have lived there a little bit longer, but we were staying in the garage where there was no Central AC. By the time summer arrived, my girlfriend and I were ready to get out of the garage and into a place with Central AC. It was at the top of our list when we found a realtor. My wife and I still consider the AC to be one of the most important systems in our home. Living in Florida means considering the heat and the humidity and being prepared before the summer months begin.

Tampa, FL is home to one very tall bridge

My wife and I went to Tampa Bay last year for the first time ever.

We started traveling in our RV a couple of years ago and this was our first chance to visit Florida.

We decided to go to Tampa, because my wife has family that lives close by. We were convinced that summer was the best time to visit Florida, because we wanted to see the beach and go to the ocean. It would have been nice if one of our friends would have taken the time to explain how incredibly hot and humid it can get in the Tampa area. The average summer temperature was 93 degrees during the week that we visited. My wife and I stayed in an RV park while we were in Tampa. It was on one side of a very long and tall bridge. The bridge is one of the tallest bridges in the whole country. Driving the RV across the bridge was very nerve-wracking and I wanted to throw up my lunch. After we made it to the RV park, we found out that they only have 30 amp service. Our large RV with three slides and an upstairs bedroom uses 50 amp service. We were unable to run both of the air conditioners and it was impossible to keep the house cool. Both of us learned a very important lesson about visiting Tampa during The summer season. If we ever return to that city, we certainly will wait until the weather is much more mild and cool. I honestly don’t know how people can live in that environment happily.

It's too hot to stay home and do nothing

One of my favorite places to take the kids is Weeki Wachee Springs

During the summer, Tampa Bay is one of the worst places to live. It’s absolutely hot, uncomfortable, and humid. A lot of people don’t prefer living in Florida because of the temperatures. I’ve lived here my whole life and I can’t think of living anywhere else. When I was a kid, the heat did not seem to be as extreme as it is today. I remember growing up without an air conditioner in my bedroom, but now it’s almost impossible to survive without central air conditioning. The average summer temperatures are 90 degrees or higher, but that isn’t the worst part about living in Tampa. The humidity is the absolute worst part about the tropical climate. The humidity is around 100% every single day. I can’t even walk outside without starting to sweat. The moisture collects on my body instantly and makes me feel very uncomfortable. It’s too hot to stay home and do nothing, so my family and I enjoy going to the spring when we have a day without work. There are a lot of natural freshwater springs in Florida and many of them are close to Tampa. Within an hour you can find a number of places to cool down on a hot summer day. One of my favorite places to take the kids is Weeki Wachee Springs. The place has real mermaids that stay underwater and swim. It’s a pretty cool place for the kids to visit and the water is crystal clear and blue. Trust me, if you come to Florida to visit anything but a cold refreshing spring, you’re going to be disappointed and very uncomfortable.

Tampa Bay had a great team last year, but I still hate #13

I have lived in Florida my whole life and I am a die-hard Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan.

I watched them win the championship in 2003 and then I watched them blow their chances every year until number 13 arrived.

Number 13 is the old quarterback from the New England team. I despise the guy so much that I won’t even use his real name. Number 13 is arrogant and full of himself, but he certainly knows how to get the job done. He took the Tampa Bay Team all the way to the Superbowl and won the championship game. Tampa Bay had a great team last year and I got to see a ton of the games. My company services residential and commercial Heating and air conditioning systems. It is extremely hot in Tampa, Florida, even during football season. Most people use their air conditioner all the way up to the championship game. We rarely have a need for heat in this neck of the woods. On the day of the Super Bowl, some of the fans looked miserable and uncomfortable in the cold weather, but I was wearing shorts, flip flops and a t-shirt to the bar where I watched the game. The place is one of my favorite restaurants to eat wings. It is located very close to the Tampa Bay Stadium. The stadium parking lot was packed with people having a tailgate party but it looked like a rowdy mess and an excuse for the police to arrive. I thought the bar was a much safer place to party the night away.
