Starting out on a romantic vacation, or treading water hoping someone will notice?

And they lived happily ever after...until Goldilocks arrived

Looking at this photo, you would really have to wonder what kind of a relationship these two could have had, but they look very happy together. The real story is that my dad is one of those guys who will work out some way to do just about anything by himself so he doesn’t have to ask for help…and he can tell everyone later how he managed to pull off these amazing feats all alone. In this case, he was hunting black bear on the Uncompahgre plateau in western Colorado. Back then, Tote Gotes were the poor man’s ATV. For those of you who’ve never seen or heard of one, they’re like short, fat motorcycles with no gears, little tractor tread tires, very little suspension, and a Briggs and Stratton
