Vacation Planning Snafus

I am leaving tomorrow for my vacation to Colorado.  I am planning to spend a week in Saguache County and attend BlancaFest in Fort Garland in neighboring Costilla County.  I have encountered a couple of snafus:

  • There are no buses going to Fort Garland or to Saguache from Denver.  I’ll have to take a bus from Denver to Colorado Springs and spend tomorrow night in Colorado Springs.
  • The only bus from Colorado Springs to Fort Garland leaves Friday Morning.
  • There are no rental car places in either Fort Garland or in Saguache.
  • There are no nudie bars in Fort Garland or Saguache.
  • The rental car place I checked out in Colorado Springs was charging $300/week plus $.15/mile (It is 127 miles from Colorado Springs to Fort Garland and another 78 miles from Fort Garland to Saguache.
  • The only bus that leaves Fort Garland to Colorado Springs leaves Sunday.

I have invested too much in this vacation to cancel it.  I will find a way to get where I have to be.  Next time, I will make sure that either Greyhound or Amtrak goes through the towns I want to visit before visiting.

If you are planning to attend Blanca Fest, I need a ride to Saguache.  I will also need a ride from Saguache to Colorado Springs on Friday morning.

See you at Blanca Fest!

  1. Can’t you just have the driver of your campaign bus take you there?

    • I could if it was a campaign trip. Federal laws prohibit campaign buses from being used for personal vacations.

  2. Pshaw – just call it a working vacation and hand out a few brochures and buttons about your candidacy…come on – I thought we could expect you to think outside the box…or bus as the case may be.

  3. I grew up in Saguache and am now living in Denver. I would totally recommend the Zapata Falls Hike. In my opinion some of the most beautiful scenery this country has to offer. Good luck in your travels, please give the San Luis Valley my love.
