Sep 16, 2016 - PT and Peterson's Air Museum

Up early again and this time I really do have a physical therapy appointment at 7:20am. This morning I will be having Cheryl working on me. She starts with a little rubbing on the back, but then goes into working on some exercises. She gives me three new exercises to do at home and has me doing them here for a while. The exercises that Jeff had me do were easy stretching, the ones Cheryl gave me were more strenuous and worked my back to a greater degree. She finishes up with the back rub and then tells me to bring one of my golf clubs on...

Sep 15, 2016 - PT and not much else

Up and out early again this morning for my 7:20am physical therapy appointment, but no one was there. Called Charlotte and she checked my schedule and today was supposed to be at 9am, so I waited in the parking lot. Meeting with Jeff again and he started working on my back again, rubbing and pulling, poking and prodding, rubbing and pulling. He then had me do the exercise he had shown me yesterday and then added a couple of more. I am supposed to be doing these every day at home (RV). Then he finished with the rubbing thing. My back had...

Sep 14, 2016 - Physical Therapy and seeing some of the city

Up early this morning so that we can make my 8am appointment for my physical therapy. This morning I was assigned to Jeff and he asked me many questions and felt up and down my spine. Then he had me lay down on my side and started working my back, rubbing and pulling, poking and prodding, and rubbing and pulling again. Then he had me do a couple of exercises, which I need to keep doing, and then back to the rubbing and pulling. By the time I walked out I felt like a new man. Then we came back to the RV to eat breakfast. Charlotte had work...

Sep 13, 2016 - Moving down to Colorado Springs and dinner with old friends

Up a little later this morning, we have to travel but it is only an hour drive. We are heading to Colorado Springs and the Air Force Academy where we will be staying. The drive went fine and we got a wonderful site to set up on. Looking out the driver side windows, this is the side that most of the windows are on, we see only trees. This park is really nice as we are away from everything, just out in the woods. This base is the home of the Air Force Academy, the Air Force version of West Point and Annapolis, and is one of the most beautiful...

Aug 28, 2016 - Manitou Cliff Dwellings & More

(Note: Click on "View all photos", then double click on first photo to enlarge to size of screen, click on "Slideshow, 5 sec" to automatically advance photos). Saturday, August 27, 2016 - We moved today from Colorado Springs KOA to Garden of the Gods RV Resort, both in Colorado Springs. Colorado Springs KOA couldn't extend our stay there for a few more days as they were completely booked, so we were able to find a space at nearby Garden of the Gods RV Resort, located at 3704 W. Colorado Avenue. We didn't realize how much there was to see...

Aug 26, 2016 - Touring Colorado Springs, CO

(Note: Click on "View all photos", then double click on first photo to open to size of screen, then click on "Slideshow,5 sec" to automatically advance photos). Friday, August, 26, 2016 - Tommy had been saying that he needed a haircut, so I finally volunteered to cut it for him. We've had a set of clippers for years, but it's been a long time since I used them, so I took out the instructions to review how to cut a man's hair. He seemed a little hesitant about the whole haircut idea when he saw me reading the instructions, but I assured him...

Thursday, August 25, 2016 - We were up early this morning because we wanted to eat breakfast at the café here at Terry Bison Ranch before getting on the road to drive to Colorado Springs, CO. We walked over to the café, had some tasty Dunkin Donuts coffee and a good hot breakfast and managed to be on the road by 9:30 a.m. It was an easy drive, south on I-25 for about 140 miles....

Aug 4, 2016 - Colorado Springs CO

August 4 Went back to the Garden of the Gods this morning to check out some trails that I did not see last time we were there. Later we visited Dianna's favorite place, Walmart, to get resupplied before our move to Estes Park tomorrow. It is supposed to rain starting tonight. Don't really need the rain anymore as we ran the truck through a car wash a couple of days ago. It really needed it as over the last weeks it accumulated a lot of dirt, but it is reasonably clean now. Tomorrow we leave for Estes Park which is the little town just...

Aug 3, 2016 - Colorado Springs CO

August 3 This morning we went to a reconstructed cliff dwelling in Manitou Springs. In the early 1900s the town went to the Mesa Verde area and removed some cliff dwelling blocks, moved them to the Manitou Springs area and reconstructed the dwelling. We also went to Miramont Castle, the restored victorian home of a clergyman and his wife. In the afternoon I went to Seven Falls. They are a series of 7 cascading waterfalls in a canyon with 1400 foot walls. It was a nice walk to the falls through the canyon. Tomorrow is our last day in...

Aug 2, 2016 - Colorado Springs CO

July 27 Today we hooked up the trailer and moved to Canon City. It is the home of Royal Gorge, where a bridge spans the gorge hundreds of feet over the Arkansas River. The last part of the trip followed the river through the gorge. It was very scenic with mountains on both sides of the highway. July 28 Did a day trip to Victor and Cripple Creek, old mining towns tucked up in the mountains. We went there via the Phantom Canyon Road, a gravel road built on an old railroad bed. About 20 miles through the mountains with some nice scenery....

Jul 27, 2016 - Home at Mountaindale

Marilyn & I shared our morning coffee inside the RV this morning, with the fireplace on. Outdoors at Raton Pass, it was a beautiful but cool morning. At nearly 8000’ elevation, the temperature in the 50’s was a bit too cool to enjoy sitting outdoors. It was right at 9:00 AM when we followed Eddie & Jan out of the RV Park, heading north into Colorado. We stopped at Trinidad for fuel and continued on through Walsenburg, and Pueblo, where we turned west on Hwy 50 toward the small town of Penrose, where we turned north again, this time on Hwy...

Jul 15, 2016 - Las Vegas to Colorado Springs

After almost a month, we finally left Las Vegas for Utah. The first leg was fairly short, only three hours, and we ended up in the southern part of Utah around Kanab, Utah just past Saint George. My goal was the temple at St George, but Kanab is a great jumping off point for Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon and a few other interesting places. We had already visited most of those so my main concentration was on a temple visit for Julieann. I learn something new at almost every temple I take her to. This trip I learned that the St George...
