|We are getting excited about leaving for our 5 week trip westward at the end of this week. Fred has been working on the RV, and has really made some great changes to it to personalize it for our needs. He has a wheel chock to secure the Harley in the back room, and has built some shelving to store materials more securely in the storage compartment in the front under the 5th wheel area. He added insulation to the storage compartments and built a great clothes rack that is convertible; it hangs up by the ceiling in the back room for indoor use, but also can be attached outside the back of the RV when we are in a park for awhile. He has checked all the hoses, nuts, bolts, and tires as well as lots more that I am probably not even aware of - all I have to do is help pack! During this trip, we will visit several areas: Tulsa, Oklahoma; Dodge City, Kansas; southwestern Colorado, northwestern New Mexico, northern Arizona, and quite a bit of southern and central Utah. As we did last summer, we will explore many national parks and recreational areas, and I am certain we will learn a lot and take some great photos. We hope you will enjoy "traveling" with us this year.
