Sep 30, 2017 - Eisenhower slept here

Denver, CO We started with a bus tour of downtown Denver which included Coors Field, LoDo, Larimer Square, and a guided tour of the Molly Brown house. This 3-story landmark was once the home of American philanthropist, socialite and activist Margaret Brown, known as “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” for surviving the sinking of the Titanic. Our guide was excellent and we learned a few things we had never known. Margaret Brown was quite a lady! We also did a tour of our current lodging, The Brown Palace Hotel, again with a delightful and...

Sep 29, 2017 - Money, money, money

Denver, CO Apparently Amtrak has a reputation for being late. We were delighted, therefore when our train arrived in Omaha a few minutes early. We passengers all piled on, found our respective seats, and settled in for our 12:20 am (yes, that is AM) departure. Then we sat for 1 ½ hours as Amtrak attempted to add another car. The car being added was Union Pacific so, apparently, not all of the connections connected. One of those connections was electrical so we sat for the hour and a half with no power – no lights, no ac, no toilets, and no...

Sep 19, 2017 - We are almost ready!

Here is our 120 page treasure map around the "loup" in Nebraska. This is such a well-organized sale. So much good food, tons of treasures, and 500 miles of opportunities. The number of sales has increased from 720 to 760 this year. My bargaining skills are almost honed to perfection so I figure I can make it on the same amount of money as last year. If not, the guidebooks has so helpfully identified where all of the ATMs are (not the bathrooms, but the ATMs). Please join us on our adventure! We may even eat peanut butter rolls at the Senior...

Trip West 2017

Aug 23, 2017 - Denver CO

Denver, or rather Aurora traffic wasn't too bad getting to Buckley AFB. It got much worse as time progressed. The famcamp has lots of space between the RV spots. Their water wasn't working so camp sites were half priced. There were some fire hydrants that had spigots so you could fill your water tank. Our site was right next to one and we could run our hose to it every time we needed water. I did a couple of loads of wash while we were there. It is fun being on the base. Reveille every morning at 8 AM. Retreat and the Star Spangled Banner...

The Summer of 2017

Aug 19, 2017 - Day in Denver

Had breakfast at the hotel then spent the morning sorting out some phone/banking issues. Also found planned activities in Denver were now no longer an option so by midday returned to Denver Amtrak station and checked bags. Went for a walk for a couple of hours along the Market Street Mall. Met a Tibetan guy and his wife running a stall in a small market area - he told me his brother is Lama Choedak in Canberra. Did some shopping, watched a magician and met an African American guy called Jason who was collecting points for a college...

Eclipse Chasing 2017

Aug 18, 2017 - Arrival in Denver, Colorado

After a poor night's sleep bought some breakfast in the snack bar on the lower level and moved back to the observation lounge. A full day of more incredible scenery - desert, mesas, sheer cliffs, then moving out of the desert, the Colorado River, canyons, chairlifts, hydro stations, and pine forest. Also, if you're quick enough, bald eagles, coyote, jack rabbits and deer. Once in the Rockies, the train goes through 42 tunnels - one of them taking 10 minutes to pass through. Volunteers from the National Parks boarded the train at Grand...

Eclipse Chasing 2017

Aug 14, 2017 - Moab to Denver

MONDAY, AUGUST 14 – TUESDAY, AUGUST 15 Best day! Today Tom received his early birthday present. We motored into Moab for the 8:30 AM shuttle to the Moab Airport. Tom chose a flight in a WACO biplane as his gift. What an experience. We sat in the open front seat with a windshield protecting us. Our pilot, Mark, was seated in the open cockpit behind us. Mark was a bush pilot in Alaska for many years. His passion is flying and old airplanes. Mark took us up for about an hour. We skirted Arches and Canyonland because the plane’s altitude was...

May 30, 2017 - Burlington to Denver, CO

May 30, 2017 Have been very lucky with weather. Another beautiful day for our short (160 mile) drive to Denver. We arrived just in time to help Josh and Melissa load the camper on the truck and to get both out of the backyard gate onto the street. It was a REALLY a tight squeeze but Josh masterfully inched it out. Josh, Bob and I went to Trader Joe’s and King Super to stock up on provisions for the next three days. We will be dry camping which takes a bit more care in meal planning. This is the maiden outing for the “other Kweller rig”...

Apr 17, 2017 - Denver

April 17, 2017 Josh and Melissa were able to get free passes to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science which also had an IMAX theater with two new shows. We had planned to spend the day there so took off at 9:00 after breakfast at Noah’s bagels where Melissa also had a deal! The museum was really comprehensive. There were some amazing wild life displays of animals from Alaska and the Great Smokey Mountains. Since we are going to the GSMNP on this trip it was fun to get a preview and also to revisit our trip last year to Alaska. We really...
