May 30, 2015 - Let the Shopping Begin

It is our first full day in Indiana so we ate a nice breakfast and went to hit the US 40 800 mile yard sale - we started in Greenfield, IN. Since we are the junk collecting members of this family - we created a scavenger hunt so my sister, her husband and her daughter could join in on the treasure hunt. My niece Sara won and was SO EXCITED, but not as excited as Gene was when he found the 25 point thigh master. He yelled so loud you would have thought he won the lotto - I think he scared the vendor a little. One of the items to find was...

May 27, 2015 - Will it ever be tomorrow?

Just getting ready for an adventure like this is a challenge. Treasure hunting requires special tools - our magnifying glass, UV flashlight (not just to check the hotel room!), shopping bags, 8 - 35 gallon Rubbermaid bins with lids, rope, tarp, duct tape (don't leave home without it), our SMART phone (which doesn't always work in Kentucky), a pull cart, tape measure, hats, rain ponchos, umbrellas, a case of water, cooler, a bushel of snacks, and toilet paper (don't ask!). Then, we have to pack. LOL. We have a shopping list of things friends...

Jan 20, 2015 - Packing for the Big Trip

Today is the day that the balloon will be shipped to Frankfurt, Germany. Our Pilot, Jon and all the crew and support staff have been preparing for this day. The crate will reunite with us in Frankfurt where we will meet Alfred and Renata who have been wonderful balloon friends over the past several festivals. We utilize their basket, tanks, burners, fan and great trailer. Then we are off for the long drive to Chateau d' Oex. We will all be ready for a good nights sleep after an all night flight and 7 hour drive.

Sep 21, 2014 - Denver

September 21, 2014 Another relaxing morning. Josh went to work and we cooked, cleaned and read the NYT until 2:30 when Josh got home. Melissa had arranged for us to go to a friend’s house to watch the Bronco/Seahawks game. Good group of young people and a very exciting game. Unfortunately, the Broncos lost in overtime. We still had fun! Got home a little after 6:00 to finish dinner before Ann Dederer arrived. Great to see her other than the one time a year at Christmas dinner in Tahoe. We had cucumber soup, baked polenta with spicy short...

Sep 20, 2014 - Denver

September 20, 2014 Another great weather day in Denver! I worked out and then we walked to the store for our Red Rock Concert tailgating party food. Josh worked in the morning so Melissa picked us up for an afternoon at the LodDo Michigan bar which we have always enjoyed. Great snacks, local beers and energy. Hooked up with Steph Josh’s friend who we also have known over the years. Utah was winning when the game was called for rain and lightning. Good time anyway. Drove past the lot in RiNo (River North)where Josh’s townhome will be built....

Sep 19, 2014 - Denver

September 19, 2014 Beautiful morning so we took a walk on the Cherry Hill bike/walking path. It’s 6 miles to downtown on the path. (Josh bikes this path to work each day. Has a neat saddlebag where he can role up his pants/shirt/tie). Walked to Whole Foods for breakfast and then home Bob washed the rig and I made cucumber soup for Sunday dinner. Lazy day. Sat by the pool and read for most of the afternoon. Tonight we went to Table 6 for dinner. Very eclectic menu and wine list. Josh had Cheesesteak Tator Tots, Griddled Onions, Green...

Sep 18, 2014 - Estes Park to Denver, CO

September 18, 2014 Was REALLY dark last night with wonderful stars. Oh, and Bob is ahead in the cribbage tournament by one game. I no longer am going to give him the points he misses! Left camp about 8:00 without breakfast in order to get a parking spot for hiking to Cub Lake. Another gorgeous fall day. Just as we started on the trail a big bugling bull elk walked in front of us. Did not see any ladies around so not his lucky day! The whole time we were hiking we could hear the bulls bugling. Fun! We saw a few bulls across the meadow just...

Aug 30, 2014 - Denver CO

After settling in at Cherry Creek State Park and doing some much needed chores around the RV we made our way to Mac and Ginny McCaffrey's house for an outstanding dinner. Ginny loves to make lamb chops for Richard. Does she feel that I deprive him of his favorite lamb? ( really don't. But she was very gracious and made a steak for me. All in all a great meal! The next day was dinner at Benny's Restaurant and Tequila Bar, 301 E. 7th Ave., our favorite in Denver, for another incredible dinner. Mac always takes us on a tour around Denver...

Aug 4, 2014 - Day 4 Fruita Co. to Denver Co.

Day 4 August 4, 2014 The journey home August 4th 2014. After getting a good night's sleep we were ready for our 4 hour 254 mile journery home. There's really not a whole lot to say about this day, as all we did was drive home. We got started as late as possible it was around noon before we got on the road. It was kind of a dreary, overcast, rainy day. We drove straight home only stopping so the kids could stretch, and use the restroom. It was a good drive. Luckly we stayed pretty much in front of the storm the whole way. We...

Aug 1, 2014 - Day 1 Denver Co. to Vernal Ut.

Day 1 August 1 2014 We set out on our 320 mile drive at 8:30 am, in search of dinosaurs. At about 2:30pm we had made it to Dinosaur National Monument. We should have stopped at the visitors center, but we didn't. We continued on our drive up the main road into the park. Harpers corner rd. is a 22 mile (one way, 44 total) loop that takes you north into the center of the park and back again. The first overlook was very beautiful. The rest of the scenery I would rate as just average it was pretty, just not breathtaking like the...

Jul 31, 2014 - Trailer water heater broke

Water heater stopped working. We have had the trailer for only a month. Went to a Lance dealership in Denver. They squeezed us in and found that the LP line had been kinked. Assembling error. After six hours it was fixed and we finally got back on the road.

Jul 4, 2014 - Colorado, Denver Stop

I spent a week in Gering/Scottsbluff, Nebraska recovering from the trip up into the Big Horns. Hummm, maybe I forgot to include that portion of the trip in the journal. Oh well, Nebraska is pretty forgettable anyway. I then headed toward Colorado. Along the way I happened upon Cabela's world head quarters and made my first visit to a Cabela's store. That's no big deal either. I stayed at North Sterling State Park in Colorado for two reasons: 1)I get into Colorado State Parks for free and 2) because there's nowhere else to stay in that...
