Summit Up

Special to the Daily

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column trying but failing to avoid this topic.

Today is Valentine’s Day, and guys, if you haven’t already, you better get it in gear and make sure you do the right thing. We’re talking flowers, candy, perfume, a card … ANYTHING. This is serious business. If you don’t want to feel the icy wrath of a woman scorned, get something, wrap it and get to your girlfriend or wife or significant other before the day is out.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.


We also managed to find some seriously bad Valentine’s Day jokes on the web:

Q: What did one pickle say to the other?

A: You mean a great dill to me.

Q: What did the French chef give his wife for Valentine’s Day?

A: A hug and a quiche.


We hate to report another Scum Alert! Scum Alert!, but we’ve got one of the welded kind to pass along.

Before we begin, we’re a little bit surprised by this one ” don’t all the jibbers out there share a common courtesy for one another? Isn’t there some sort of unspoken shredder code all you little whipper-snappers follow? Have you no decency, you little punk, or punks?

Anyway, here it is:

It seems someone (or some group more likely) walked away with a 24-foot by 4-inch wide, red, adjustable jib rail set up at the Dillon Reservoir for the entertainment of air-craving snowkiters. You know, those ballsy guys who hang around Farmer’s Korner, catching massive airs, causing traffic jams on Highway 9 because of all the rubbernecking that goes on.

Well, the rail in question disappeared Friday night, and Anton at Colorado Kiteforce wants it back ” duh. He’s offering a king’s ransom as a reward, so if you’re invited to a killer jib session with a brand new rail that your stoner host couldn’t possibly afford, you know you’re in the center of a real karmic controversy.

If this is you, call Anton at (970) 485-2296, and help him get his rail back. You’ll get some cash to put toward that new ’64 Unity powder rig you’ve been dreaming about.

And folks, let’s get this one done in a hurry.

Anton’s group is hosting the third annual Therapy Sessions at the Sanitarium snowkiting event on March 11 and 12 at Dillon Reservoir. They should have some iron to ollie on.


We are outta here, looking for Cupid.
