Next month we're staying at the Sheraton Steamboat Resort in Steamboat Springs, CO, paid in part thanks to a conference that my spouse is attending there. We'd like to rent skis for a couple of half-day ski outings, and are wondering what the best option is. The Sheraton has its own attached rental store and we've used them in the past, but we thought they were a bit on the expensive side. Is there anything less expensive within walking distance? (We won't have a car.) [more inside]
This (early 19th century, mississippi river?) oil on canvas painting (large size, 612 Kb) has been in my family for generations. Who painted it, when, where? [more inside]
Steamboat Springs, CO Filter: I want to plan a weekend getaway for my loving hubby and I to a bed and breakfast in or around Steamboat. We are total foodies and live for amazing breakfasts. I've done some preliminary research, but it's hard to tell from websites, etc. how the experience will really be. Can anyone recommend a bed and breakfast in the area where you had an incredible experience overall, but with the food in particular? [more inside]

I've been listening to an audiobook of Life on the Mississippi by Mark Twain, and the descriptions of being a riverboat pilot got me to wondering: has anybody ever released a riverboat/steamship simulator video game?
