The Munchie Report: Rocky Mountain Road Trip Part 2. (Editors Note: We are not paid or sponsored by any of the brands or businesses mentioned in this article.) Welcome back, friends! Let’s finish the tale that I started last week, shall we? To Read The Munchie Report: Rocky Mountain Road Trip Part 1- Click Here When we left off, we had just left Denver. We were headed to a spot in Utah just outside the Colorado border. We were hunting Elk! Now I know a lot of people don’t agree with hunting. That’s ok. We are not vegetarians. We are animal lovers....
Mine was Salted Oreo and Buttermilk Cupcake. His was Salted Maple Pecan and Espresso Fudge. All of them were real af. Nothing is better than legit, whole ingredient ice cream. I could taste the buttermilk and there were chunks of an actual cupcake in my buttermilk cupcake. The salted Oreo tasted as expected but they put in a substantial amount of Oreos. God bless you!
The Ryot dugout comes with a plethora of features to make discreet smoking so much better! Let’s start with the design. Acrylic is always the coolest in my book. It’s more durable than wood and is usually way cooler looking. The lids on acrylic dugouts are a step up from wooden slide lids. You don’t lose them since they are attached. They sure do keep spinning though! I have definitely had to re-tighten my share of lids. With the Ryot dugout, you can only turn the lid one way or you can’t get the hitter out. This is brilliant!
We were inspired to take a 14-day wine/food/reefer road trip across the country that we’ve lovingly named, “Fear and Loathing in the Verde Valley”. The whole trip was epic but I’ll keep to the point, or at least try. Zzzttt. After 3 long days of travel and dabbling at dispensaries in Colorado, we parked our RV at a beautiful campground in Cottonwood, AZ. As soon as that sucker was plugged in and hotboxed proper, we headed to Merkin Osteria for dinner.
We cleansed our palates with some fruity, crystalized kush and headed to this kickass tourist spot. The winery is located at the top of a hill. At the bottom of the hill is a cave where you may picnic.
