I'm in Northern Utah, so I am as landlocked as they come. Anyone else trapped up here in the Rockies?

I've been through there mate.Personally it wasn't very eye catching for my taste.I don't like being boxed in by land.I have to have plenty of sea shore and ocean to explore. B)

OMG! What a beautiful box!

So, Will, when is the best time of year to treck out there?

...I like the cold my guy likes the heat.

The Spring or Fall. Summer is very hot and Winter is very cold here. Cache Valley is at it's finest in the Spring when it is as green as Ireland or in the Fall when it burns with a thousand different shades of orange and red.

Winter sunsets are also grand. And summer nights are pocked with stars.

Then mid-Spring. The mosquitos haven't formed raiding parties and the mountains are more green than brown.

I finally found a pirate crew in Cache Valley under one Captain Legrand. Quite by accident, but I have found one. Now I'm just waiting for them to join the Pub so that I can buy them a round.

Ahoy, mate!

So other than meself, I know that my Quartermaster, Malachai Armstrong has just joined the Pub, who hails from Castle Rock, CO. I did notice there were some other forum members from Colorado, but most have not been active for quite a while. I do know Sir Nigel recently moved back here though, as he did caricatures for us at this past Buccaneer Bash.

As for Utah, Wyoming, and the other Rocky Mountain states, I'm afraid I don't know that many other pirates from around here/there, either.

Incidentally, this is a brilliant song by Tom Lewis that I must share. I think you'll appreciate it:

Poor old landlocked sailor, washed-up on the shore,

Never been so many miles from the sea before,

Is he dreaming of the surging tide, the rolling swell?

Is he dreaming of the ocean? No - is he hell!

Chorus:

He's a happy landlocked sailor living in the trees,

He swapped the roaring tide-race for the mountain breeze,

With his wife he lives in paradise in the Rockies of B.C.,

How I wish that happy landlocked sailor could be me.

He finds that on the lake he's never bothered by the tide,

All his navigation is done on the mountainside,

Waves of ocean-blue have changed to waves of forest-green,

White horses into snow-capped peaks as far as can be seen.

He used to sail the sea-lanes to exotic ports-of-call,

Now he cruises dusty roads down to the local mall,

His roving day are over, his feet upon the shore,

He's never going back, he's on dry-land for evermore.

(Now you know that happy landlocked sailor's really me.)
