Manitou Springs Casket Races
A few years ago a dead lady washed up on main street. Manitou Springs turned it into a celebration. NOT to be confused with the OTHER town in Colorado where they found a frozen dead guy in a Tuff Shed and turned THAT into a festival. Big difference. (And no, I am not making any of this up.
At the hotel, special thanks to the Red Wing Motel in Manitou Springs for an AWESOME stay. I highly recommend their establishment if you are in town.

FYI, yes, there are going to be an ass ton of pictures of Alexi and the girls. This is because I was the photographer and if I am in charge of taking pictures I am going to be completely biased when there are women in tight clothing around. Any complaints? Direct them to your local monastary.

Rob is afraid of heights and only agreed to get on the hearse if I personally helped him down, which I graciously did, but I did turn down his request to spoon afterwards.
My money is on the kid.
Threatening children, it's just one of our many services.
Tyler driving Alexi since Rob didn't decide to show up until after the race. Not that I am holding it against him or mentioning it incessantly at every opportunity after the fact.
Meanwhile at the pirate hearse.

Three white hearses, we have that...
I don't know what the hell this is, but I submit that we immediately commence with plans to kill it with more fire.
