Highpointers Diane and Charlie Winger’s Colorado-For-Free Website Article

Blogger Diane Winger“The Denver Post” has a profile of Highpointer liaison director Charlie Winger and volunteer coordinator Diane Winger about the launch of their website.

The article is entitled “Take your pick of their freebies you oughta know” By Dana Coffield.

The article notes:

“The cheapskate intelligence gathered for “Highpoint Adventures: The Complete Guide to the 50 State Highpoints” got their editor thinking that another book was in the making, this one about admission- free things to do in Colorado. But by the time the pair had the skinny on 50 or 60 budget activities, the editor was gone, and the publisher was no longer interested. Charlie, unrepentant in his quest to complete lists of things like bagging fourteeners, simply moved on to more lists. Diane decided to parlay the information into and a related blog for skinflint travelers that is especially appealing in the era of $3-per-gallon fuel. She works from their home in Montrose, where free chocolate samples are available year round at the nearby Russell Stover factory.”
