Budge Road Budges

Ron,

Do I remember correctly? Is your shop at the base of East Gros Ventre Butte? Is all well?

Re: Budge Road Budges

I see that Ron is in Moab this weekend.
Link didn't work, well it takes you to the page but the article isn't there. Any updates?

Try this link for newer info: http://bit.ly/1gpHhn7. Also, it's going to rain so there's some concern how that will affect the hillside. Here's the Google Maps location: http://bit.ly/1gpI1sC. The hole across Hwy 26 is where the Walgreens is now located, I presume. I also presume Walgreens and its site engineer may be having earnest conversations soon.

According to his address but I don't see his shop in street view. He did have an older address but I think it was even further south. I imagine you're right, though.

Re: Budge Road Budges

I dropped by his shop after leaving the Teton meetup last summer (because he was standing in the parking lot) so we wheeled in and talked. Here's the link to his shop a few blocks south on the opposite side of the road and you can see his van in the pic, unless he's moved? Anyone know if he has?

Re: Budge Road Budges

No, Ron hasn't moved. His shop is south of town and far enough away that I don't think it should be a problem. I'd say he is about 1/2 mile south of the Albertson's grocery store which is just down the road from where the slide is.

Re: Budge Road Budges

not sure if any of you that freqent that area are familiar with the slide that happened nearby in the mid 20's, but its worth checking out if you visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gros_Ventre_landslide
