We were up at 5:30, and on the road just after 7am. We had to get re-acclimated to hooking up the RV – it’s been over 5 months since we moved! Even though it rained last night, John traveled slowly enough that no Elk Refuge mud was thrown up on either the truck or RV. There was very little fog in Hoback Canyon and the trip was delightful. It wasn’t till we reached I-80, that we ran into wind to any degree, and most of the time it was WSW, which helped to push us forward.
When we arrived at the Laramie KOA around 3 pm, the office was closed, till 4. I made some calls, but to no avail, as 3 other rigs pulled up behind us. So, since there was a list of sites, we picked one. We had to fill with water from the office, as there is no water at the sites, and then set up. We went back to the office at 4 and paid.
Dinner was at the Iron Skillet at the Petro truck stop – John had an excellent meatloaf and I had whitefish – both wonderful and twice as much as we needed. We have got to learn to split at truck stops!!! We are crashed in our cozy, warm RV by the fireplace.
