If You Happen To Be In Salida...(Smoke and Steel)

Rate this Entry
Had some business to take care of in Pueblo, CO
Decided to take the long way back to Conejos County
The road from Canon City to Salida was very scenic
The road follows the Arkansas River

I finally got a chance to visit my DREAM retail establishment
Salida Cutlery & Smoke Shop

    Yes I was there!!
    I had a great time
    2 hr drive from Conejos County
    Got a hotel room
    Rode my bike downtown
    Had Moonlight Pizza

    The owner, Twyla (think I spelled it right) hooked me up with a free t shirt and hoodie
    I've gotten all kinds of comments/questions on the t shirt....

    hahaha, sounds like a nice night for sure. My first knife store was a smoke shop. My grandpa, and my dad were pipe smokers when I was young. I don't think a house can smell better than having a pipe tabaccoo can around the living room. Macho popouri !!

    Nice post! Looks like a good time. There is a chance my wife and I will be in Salida when we travel in CO at the end of Sept, and will visit this store if so.
