It seemed important to do something edifying today, so after breakfast we headed down to the Coors Brewery. Alas, no tours today. The best we got was a drive down the main street of Golden on our way out of town.
Things look very different on the east side of the Rocky Mountains, fairly flat, tiny rolling hills, farm land and open spaces. Preparation for Kansas, I guess.
We tried out the air conditioned seats in the truck today. Underwhelming, but then it was only around 80 degrees outside.
Ron got an automated phone call from the Emergency Alert center in Washington County. They were calling to inform us about severe thunderstorms, large hail, and heavy rainfall with flooding. Ron wasn't impressed, but I thought it was cool. I remember signing up for it before we left on the trip.
Since the scenery wasn't so interesting we spent our travel time listening to Radio Classics on Serius. Ron is nostalgic about Hopalong Cassidy, Fibber McGee and Molly, Gunsmoke, etc. Today we listened to Wild Bill Hickok, with Andy Devine playing the role of Jingles. Ron actually listened to some of this stuff when he was a child. I was deprived, I guess, I don't remember listening to the radio at all, but I did have some cool story records: Cinderella, Bozo Under the Sea, and a story about a little boy riding on a trail.
Next door neighbors in the campground today live in Martinsburg, WV. Their daughter teaches at North High. They are on their way to Wyoming.
