First warm day in Colorado.

The heater has been doing the job. I talked to Ray @ Espar of Michigan and he said it was most likely the high altitude that is giving us trouble. There is a high elevation sensor you can wire in that detects elevation and adjusts the fuel pump to give you the optimal fuel/air mixture. Unfortunately, it is $300, which is too expensive.

On the bright side, it was actually warm enough to be outside today. So I went on a bike ride.

After the bike ride we met up with Jordan Priebe who introduced us to both Foos and Erik. Connor Morley and Josh Miranda were also in Ft. Collins and realized we were around when they saw our van parked downtown. So we met up with them and end up going to DJ Avalon, a spaced themed electronic dance party.

Warm days after cold days are much appreciated.
