Sep 9, 2016 - Heading to Denver, CO

Today we are up early to travel again. Today we are going to Denver, CO and stay at Buckley AFB. Sun was out and the wind was mild today, so a fairly nice drive. Buckley AFB is east of downtown Denver on the edge of the plains, with the winds blowing most of the time. After getting set up we ran over to the commissary for some groceries and back to put them away. The temp here is so much cooler than what we have been experiencing in the rest of the trip. I spent the rest of the day trying to make an appointment for a doctor to see about my...

To Maine and back

Sep 7, 2016 - Homeless

When I left Massachusetts in July, I knew that I'd be returning in September to attend my niece's wedding. I had decided to drive to a large airport, making it easy to catch a plane back to Massachusetts. After six weeks of heavy driving, I finally reached Denver site of one of the largest airports in the world. I had already made arrangements for a bunny sitter for Pooka. I had contacted the Colorado House Rabbit Society (yes, they really exist). They had recommended a woman who volunteers for the Society and who works part-time at a pet...

Jul 31, 2016 - In Denver

We left Glenwood Springs on Saturday morning about 9:30AM. I-70 East bound from GWS takes you through the beautiful Glenwood Canyon, where the freeway is in an over and under configuration as if follows the Colorado River. It also takes you over two very steep passes--Vail Pass at 10,662 feet and the Eisenhower Tunnel at 11,158 feet. The tunnel is the longest mountain tunnel and the highest point on the Interstate Highway System. The Aire averaged 5.3 MPG from GWS to the tunnel--pretty good I think!! We arrived in the Denver area and parked...

East Coast Bound!

Jul 10, 2016 - Alive & well...

It's been some time since I did a post hasn't it! Oh my, it's been quite a ride lately. But for tonight I'll just say we have landed at the Elk's Lodge in Westminster, Colorado for two nights. It is quite warm (about 100 degrees) but we have AC & enjoyed having dinner here this evening after getting settled in. It was a lovely drive today but I haven't downloaded the pics yet so will get that done sometime tomorrow. We're on our way to South Dakota & will arrive on Tuesday. There's much to chat about but it's 2:30am & I need to go to BED!!!...

May 25, 2016 - Home at last!

We got home Wednesday afternoon. It's been a fun and exciting trip, but as always, the best part of any trip is coming home!

Bill and I are fond of statistics, so here are some fun facts about our trip: Number of days - arrived home on the 58th Number of miles traveled - 6945 Number of States visited - 14 Number of campgrounds - 40 nights at 10 different sites Number of Walmart overnights - 6 Number of nights spent with friends and family -...

May 4, 2016 - Travel Day - Colorado

Tuesday, May 3 Lynd repaired the electrical problems we encountered with the RV on Monday evening. We spent Tuesday morning with him doing that and me doing laundry. Now everything is fine once again, so we did some more exploring. We drove to the small Kansas town of Lindsborg, which is known here as "Little Sweeden". It is very picturesque, with brick streets and artwork decorating the sidewalks in front of local businesses. The town has "The Sweedish Pavilion" that was made in Sweeden and shipped to the US for the 1904 World's Fair held...

2016 RV Trip

Apr 7, 2016 - Pikes Peak

Our ride up Pikes Peak was like every train ride I have been on uneventful. It took one and 1/2 hour to get to the top. Temperature was 21 degrees with the wind chill it was 9 degrees. That was cold and it reminded me how much I hate cold weather. I believe everyone had a good time. Cassidy probably would have been happier at the beach. But she has seen apart of the USA she hasn't seen. We really enjoyed our time with Zack,Grace and Gunnar they grow up so quick. Time just keeps flying by.

Apr 5, 2016 - mountains

We made an effort to go over the Rocky's to Grand Lake at Granby on the western side. We had been there a couple years ago and I was still wanting to see moose there. We had gotten off I70 onto 40 heading up the mountain and it started snowing. Temperatures were in the upper 50's when we left Denver. The snow got harder and the temp went down to 27 degrees we turned around and headed back to Interstate 70. It wasn't snowing their. So we headed west again on the interstate. We stopped at a town visiter center and talked to them about going...

Apr 4, 2016 - Golden CO

Everyone is back to work so that leaves exploring the area until evening. Today we go to Golden which is one of our favorite towns. We enjoy walking the creek and the town. Denver is full of outdoor adventures but that's not for us. We are not getting off the sidewalk. It's like our travels in the 5th wheel I don't care nothing about camping like building a fire for example. I just enjoy living somewhere different all the time. We also road up lookout mountain which is where Buffalo Bill Cody is buried. It's a curvey mountain road with a...

We made it back home this afternoon. We only unloaded the essentials for tonight. There are no remnants of last week's blizzard, except for the lush green lawn. Temps today in the 70's! We hope to take another trip this summer, destination as yet unknown. Have a great Spring, everyone!

Apr 1, 2016 - Denver

Linda and I had got up at 2am to get to Louisville to pick up Tammy and Cassidy for a 5:50am flight. What were we thinking when we made these reservations. This is really the red eye flight. But I will have to say that the traffic wasn't bad or the line at the airport. Truthfully it worked out well. We arrived in Denver at 7am wide awake and ready to go. We had already decided to go down to Colorado Springs 80 miles south. Cassidy's teacher had recommended it. We really enjoyed the area and would return later in the week again to ride the...
