    I see, makes sense. I'm sure he'll find a good spot. I'm not quite sure why Garden of the Gods wouldn't be a good area, but I'm no expert on these things. :)

    Also, you'll be surprised how quickly you may need an UQ. Anything below about 70 degrees at night and my backside feels a bit breezy without it.
