Aug 25, 2013 - church

Grace had to work. We were real excited when Zack asked to go to church with us. We are so proud of that boy. We went to New Life of Christ FBC. We really enjoyed it everyone was real friendly. After lunch we got on the lite rail and rode all over Denver it is a easy town to get around in because of easy access to transportation. You can rent bicycles and smart cars at different places. I really like riding trams,trolley's and buses. We are having a great time with our grandson and his girlfriend.

Aug 25, 2013 - Colorado and onto Denver.

We left on time and there were no problems with bikes today! In fact Gary and I exchanged ours for fully functional ones in Denver. Gary's was starting to crab down the road and my issues were sorted with a new model Fatboy! No comments from the peanut gallery. First stage was a bit barren, but then we got into the hills and rode our way across the Rocky Mountains on way to Denver. The scenery was awesome. Not many photos because cops moved on people stopping on the highway. Rain was also chasing us again. But will get Steve's video...

Aug 24, 2013 - touring Denver

Zack's girlfriend Grace had to work today so Zack took us up into the mountains. We made our trip to Sam's then went to a mall up the street from the RV Park. It is probably the biggest mall I have ever been in. It has a small train you can ride on thru the mall. I think it is mainly for kids but adults will fit in it. Denver people are real friendly unless they are behind the wheel. Sometimes we think the gas is hooked to the horn. I think if I lived here I would try to use the light rail or the bus all the time. The mountains are...

Aug 22, 2013 - Traffic

Had a good ride to Denver but traffic was terrible once we got in town. The camp ground we had picked out was full but they were kind enough to call another one to see if they had space and they had a few back ins left. It is a real nice park but its the most we have ever paid in almost 3 years of traveling $48 a night. The Rocky Mountains are right behind us. We will be here through Sunday night. We haven't seen Zack or Grace he is working tonight. Zack will be off the next 4 days we hadn't seen them in a year. Had a dandy storm this...

Aug 13, 2013 - Denver, CO

We made it home late last night. Left Regina yesterday morning and spend 15 hours on the road (stopping at every other town for pee breaks). Today, Chris and I spent 3 hours washing the bugs and cleaning the car. Kids unpacked and we are all still doing laundry. Had a great trip but good to be home and feel clean again. Thanks for following our journey. Until next time.....

Aug 13, 2013 - What a day!

Today was a very surprising and productive day. We drove 100 miles from Pueblo, CO to Englewood, CO (outside Denver), much different from yesterday. We had a great breakfast before we left camp and went straight to the gas station. As we were pulling in, Garry and I both noticed a young girl getting out of a van, on the side of the road, with a very large backpack and two other carrying bags. I remained in the RV while Garry pumped gas. The girl came up to him and said hello. Garry proceeds to ask her where she's headed. She replies,...

Aug 7, 2013 - Denver to Glenwood Springs to Aspen

An auto trip to Glenwood Springs then to Aspen begins with Denver traffic to the highway, west. It then moves on past Lake Dillon, to Copper Mountain, up to Vail Pass, then down a thousand feet or so continuing past Vail, Avon, Edwards, Eagle, Gypsom finally to and through Glenwood Canyon where we depart Interstate 70 and enter Glenwood Springs. It's nearly impossible to describe the drive through the canyon. The Colorado River cut through the White River Plateau to form Glenwood Canyon, which is about 12 miles long. One of the canyon's...

Jul 25, 2013 - Downtown Denver

Wed., July 24th – With the airport more than an hour away, we gave ourselves plenty of time to meet the boys…actually ended up with a couple extra hours to stroll around DIA. I had time to do some research on the RTD public transportation system as an option for avoiding driving through the downtown traffic tomorrow for our city sightseeing with the boys. The connection with the boys was a “no hassle” experience, and we were grateful for their safety in travel. They were hungry and pooped after a long day of flying, so after a stop at...

Jul 21, 2013 - Tom arrives back to Colorado

Left this morning at 8am for a 2 1/2 hour drive to pick up Tom at the Denver airport. What a fiasco, went to "arriving" and we could not find each other. This airport is NOT an easy one to know where to go. He was on the forth level and I was on the third. So the guard made me leave and re-circle and try again. I was not a happy camper. Anyway next path we found each other. Tom came down to the third level. And then all was good. Did some shopping and had lunch while in the Denver area. Not much in Fairplay, or Buena Vista, CO its sort of...

Jul 18, 2013 - Kitty Cottingham

The entire idea of our trip came from an old friend from Leland and Sandestin--Kitty Cottingham. Kitty and her husband, George, lived for many years in Greenville. But we did't get to meet and know them until they became our neighbors in Sandestin Resort, MIramar Beach Florida. In short order we became pretty good friends. After George passed on, Kitty moved from their lovely home in Steamboat Springs, Co., another home just south of Denver. We stay in touch by phone on a regular basis. It was Kttty who suggested that we go to Cheyenne for...

Jul 17, 2013 - PIKE'S PEAK

PIKES PEAK This morning we left the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Denver and drove Southbound on I-25 about 50 miles to Manitou Springs adjacent to Colorado Springs, home of the Air Force Academy and Pikes Peak. The Peak tops at 14,111 ft above sea level. To get to the top, we join more than a hundred passengers who board the 5:02 P.M., bright red COG train that’s been taking visitors to the top of the peak for decades. The sunset will occur around 8:35 PM and Dee and I think it might be cool to see the top of the world near the end of the...
