The Road Trip Life: A Year on the Road with the Mayor of HeidiTown turned ten this fall and that’s a real milestone for a blog. It’s been a fun ride with many adventures along the way. This year happened to have more than its fair share of plot twists with two big eye surgeries in a span of nine months. That unfortunate turn of events put a real cramp in my travel style. I did, however, manage to make it to a handful of great festivals and wonderful destinations around Colorado and beyond.

Unforgettable Festivals

I attended several stand-out events this year around Colorado. One of the most memorable was Winterfest in Pagosa Springs where each year, hot air balloons take to the air during an ascension event. Last February, I was in one of those hot air balloons and the scenery of the Pagosa Springs area from the air was stunning. Continue reading

Some new changes in town

There’s been a bit of construction here in HeidiTown, so things might look a little different as you cruise around.  

First and foremost, you can now subscribe to HeidiTown.   If you’d like to be notified via  an email from the Mayor  each time  a new and exciting post goes up, please enter your email address into the box at the right.  

Second, you may notice the  Cinema and Eat tabs are missing.    You will now find those sections under the Extra!Extra!  tab.   The Mayor will continue writing movie reviews and the occasional dining review, but these two categories will not be the main focus of this blog.

Also new, the Colorado Festivals & Events  tab.   This section will grow and grow as HeidiTown evolves into your one-stop-shop for all  information on Colorado festivals.   From small town  fairs to big time events, the Mayor intends to dig up all the  great times  Colorado has to offer.

Last, but not least, don’t forget the Travel tab!   This area will also be expanding to include road trips throughout Colorado and beyond.

So put the top down, buckle up and get ready for the ride!   It’s gonna be good.
