|Wed, 23 Aug: Continuing west, but not too far...
Time to move on. Our courtesy camping permit has expired so we needed to decide if it was time to move on or to pay to extend our stay. We still had plenty of essentials, e.g. water, food, etc. After discussing the situation we decided to head a short distance west where a Passport America 50% discount park had room for us. Turns out that the PA rate for a full hookup 50 amp site was only a few dollars more than the non-resident boondocking rate at the State Park. Time for some creature comforts...
So, we got ready for the road. Since today's drive was a short one, we took our time and didn't roll wheels till 0930. We drove thru the now-deserted State Park to the equally lonely town of Glendo and on Interstate 25 north. Actually, I 25 runs east/west here, but it is considered a north/south Interstate (it runs from I 10 in Los Cruces NM to I 90 in Buffalo WY).
I 25 was mostly deserted, a far cry from post-eclipse on Monday when it was a miles-long parking lot. We made excellent time and 49 miles after getting on we exited at the town of Glenrock. A few more miles we arrived at the Elk Creek Village RV park. Today's run was a short 57 miles with an overall fuel economy of 7¾ mpg.
We plan to stay here for a few days. First order of business was to dump and flush our holding tanks. We're now getting started on our laundry backlog and enjoying the luxury of air conditioning.
Tomorrow we plan to drive twenty-some miles west to Casper for some victualling. Possibly sightseeing will also be on our plate. We'll see...
