Summit Up 9-20-10


Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column having a super-duper time sorting through all our possessions.

Why? Because we’re moving, and we have to box all our worldly possessions to fit in our dog-fur covered car.

What we realized when we started sorting is that we have an awful lot more things than we originally thought. How in the world did we come to have all this crap? Paperwork from

10 years ago, leases from apartments on the East Coast, old skis, a bike we hate, plus numerous seasonal outfits.

We feel like we’re taking crazy pills!

So, we’ve had a few bonfires to burn all our files so we don’t experience identity theft. And we’ve donated a bunch of clothes to local nonprofits.

What else can we do to lessen our load? E-mail us at with any suggestions.


Deb Hage of the Summit County Rotary is also looking for forks.

She writes thusly: “Forks……Forks…..Forks. I don’t think people throw them away but we are always short of forks and I don’t know what happens to them. If you go past a thrift store please stop by and pick some up. They usually cost about a nickel each. They can be dropped off at Lord of the Mountains Church in Dillon.”

Just so you know, she’s talking about the Rotarian Community dinner, which is free and happens every Tuesday at the Elks Lodge in Silverthorne.

She also said: “Shelves. We have been given two commercial kitchen shelving units. They are in a warehouse in Denver and are too large to fit in my van. If you know of someone going down in a truck who could pick them up for us, please let me know. (970) 262-2998. The warehouse is very near I-76 and Federal. It is only about five minutes past the Costco/Sam’s stores on I-70 and Wadsworth.”


We out, enjoying the splendid Summit County. September
