got your message and your current location. Is that you on google earth street view and what is it like having a patio area and grilling right next to the street?

So the drive to zion was pretty cool yesterday. The kids were finally able to walk all the way to the end of the paved trail going to the narrows. Texas Roadhouse was awesome as usual. The old tdi rolled over 20k. Drove a little over 350 miles with an average of 43.7mpg. It was at 47 until we hit mesquite, then we hit that horrible head wind. Drove most of the way between 80 and 85mph, so it was not like I was babying it.


And I forgot that MST does not observe daylight savings time, so we got into St George early... thus forcing me to go into best buy and get a Kindle Fire for the wife. The kicker of the whole thing is once we got home the dchp on my old router (mn-700) does not work with the Kindle for some odd reason. I was able to get it to work by using a static IP address, but that is a big ol pain in my arse

I don't know. My neighbors do that. I'm afraid of having my grill stolen. It's a nice neighborhood. We looked at apartments before we moved into this place, but a smaller apartment cost more. We'd rather have the privacy of a single family home. We have a one car garage, but at least we have a garage.

We've lived better, but this place fits our needs and it's a good area. We even have security guards that contantly roam the streets. For what we pay, I didn't expect that.

We'd like to move up into a bigger place, but for now, we're content with what we have. Sometimes, I go on Craigslist real estate section and set the search features to an outrageous starting price just to see how others live. It's amazing the kinds of homes you can buy with 300k now. Just five years ago, that same 300k home sold for 500k and a 300k home five years ago is now 150k. These are sad days, men.

How long is the drive and is it a good day trip or something we'd have to overnight?

Where's the pictures? I have a short attention span. The internet is always better with pictures.

There was a 3 story house near us with an elevator that recently sold for 105k. No idea what the build price for that was. I can't imagine it was cheap. The neighborhood is less than 5 years old.

For only 8.5mil, you can have this home with a 12 car garage. Even for Spanish Hills, that seems high for this market.

Pretty tacky looking but the back yard is nice. I would never pay that much to live 10feet from my neighbors though.

Here you go ysb. We go up a few times a year, so most of the pics are of the family. It was the first trip that we went and did not see any deer or turkey though.

not sure, I have looked several times, but I have yet to see any fish in the water. Not sure why, I would think that small fish would be able to survive in that environment, but there might be too much sediment in the water or something. Either that or they just hang out in the deeper sections

from this link, it shows that they have a low population of a few species http://www.nps.gov/zion/naturescience/fish.htm

Also, does anyone know of any fairly close areas with a large concentration of abandoned open mines? Something similar to Goodsprings.

I've been reading about Nelson and Searchlight. Nelson looks like it's still being worked and I don't want to risk straying onto an open claim. Searchlight, I wasn't able to find much info on.

So, if anyone knows the coordinates to a web of trails with mines, please post it up.

It looked like a perfect habitat for trout. They like fast water like that and they'd be hard to spot. Go to Bass Pro and look for the trout next to the escalators. Hard to see when you're looking right at them. Fly fishing would be best for that water, but my fly fishing skills aren't very graceful. It's more like me whipping the water.

I'm going to head south for a few hours. I feel like climbing and shooting.
