What happened to peace, quiet?

Judy and Phil Baum, Oklahoma City

One of the slogans on the Keystone Resort Web site reads, “A Mountain Experience Unlike Any Other.” And for the second straight day that slogan has taken on a much different meaning than the Keystone folks had in mind. This week, the otherwise tranquil Keystone valley has been turned in to a noisy, raucous BMW race track complete with roaring hot rod engines, screeching tires and a high pitched announcer calling every turn of every car as if he was trying to compete with the race track roar.

I suspect the affair is referred to as a BMW “conference,” but to the average Keystone vacationer it is nothing more than noise pollution driving people off their decks, into their condos in hopes of getting some peace and quiet. That’s exactly what my wife and I did yesterday until we realized the noise was almost as loud inside as it was outside. So, what did we do? We went to Vail and spent our money there. As I write this, I am inside my condo finding it hard to concentrate as the race roars on and on and on. We came to this quiet valley for some hard earned peace and quiet. It’s doubtful that we will return.
