Last one!


We left Central City this morning around 11:00 A.M. We were not in too big a hurry, we only had about 80 miles to drive to Greeley, Colorado. All went well until we took a turn the wrong way and ended up on a dirt road with a very old mine. It also had a truck parked right in the way to keep us from turning around. Jerry had to unhook the car and back up against the dirt wall to turn around. I was moving the car and he decided to back up before I was there to watch for him, he backed right into a rock wall and bent our muffler on the end. From where he was it looked like just dirt, but I could see the rocks from where I was. It could have been worse, I was able to stop him before he did the second back up into that wall.

Once we got turned around and back on the road all went well. We coasted most of the way down from the mountains. The grade down was 8%, he hardly had to use any gas at all. We are already feeling and breathing better at the lower elevation in Greeley, Colorado. We started to see a lot of crops and oil wells the closer we got. We will be in Greeley for a few days, they have a huge rodeo and 4th of July celebration we want to attend. Check back later for more from Colorado.
