Jun 12, 2014 - Denver Airport

We were so excited today, the day to pick Sammy and Vickie up at the airport has finally arrived. :-) We drove about 125 miles to the airport in Denver. The drive to the airport took us over a couple of high passes, it was a beautiful drive with snow-capped mountains and lots of waterfalls. We also enjoyed driving through all the tiny towns we have not visited before. We arrived at the perfect time, Vickie and Sammy were on their way to pick up their bags, we only had to wait a few minutes before they met us at the Delta Terminal. On the...

Jun 1, 2014 - Denver

June 1, 2014 We went downtown to Larimer Street that had been closed off for chalk artists. Lots of food vendors and of course the artists were working. Rain was threatening but it didn’t seem to impact the artists. Not sure what their contingency plans were! Bistro Vendome ( on Larimer Street) was fully booked and the truly had the ambiance of a French bistro. All of us had steak frites except Bob who had a lamb dish. I of course shared my frites with Bob! We didn’t finish until nearly 10:30. Full and tired we went home without it raining...

May 31, 2014 - Burlington to Denver, CO

May 31, 2014 We had a very interesting experience at dinner last night. Burlington, CO is not much of a town (4,000 people with corn/wheat/cattle the principle industry) but it has a very old country club that appears to be run by a few folks from India. The BW recommended it for its steaks so we drove out of town (a few shops and post office) about a mile to find a building that was a little better appointed than the restaurant at the driving range on Arnold Drive. There was one other couple there when we arrived at 6:30 with two fellows...

Apr 29, 2014 - We Leave for Italy

We were up early 5:00 AM to get ready and catch our flight at 7:40 AM. We picked up Jen and she dropped us off at DIA. We were there in good time, got checked in (the United lady told about her aunt and uncle who were in Rome) and we headed for the United Club to have breakfast and wait for the flight. The flight was on time and we were off to Newark - Not the greatest place in the world to make a connection.

Apr 3, 2014 - Final Spring Entry

Sorry for the delay in the final post, but we had a doggie crisis yesterday, and spent much of the day at the Vet's office. Mojo (the garbage gut) ate something toxic in the backyard yesterday (we have no idea what, as all of our chemicals are secured). He started acting like he was having a seizure: jerky movements, unable to walk, eyes all over the place, etc. I've never seen anything like it. It was terrifying to watch his neurological -system all out of whack. He had been fine all day until about 2:30. We rushed him to the vet. She...

Apr 1, 2014 - April 1, Denver

We were planning on spending the night in Limon, but the combination of gaining an hour with Mountain Time, plus the wind and dust in Limon made us decide to push through to Denver. We made it home around 5pm. I will check my phone for any photos I haven't sent tomorrow. Right now, we are going to put our feet up in our Perfect Chair recliners and relax!

Feb 26, 2014 - Back to Denver via Seattle

The flight from Fairbanks to Seattle was a sight to behold. While Dave tried to catch up on his sleep, I sat in the window seat and enjoyed the scenery. It was a sea of white with mountains everywhere and hundreds of miles of glaciers between the mountains. We passed Denali (20,22 feet). In the St. Elias Mountains and Chugach Range we saw Mount Saint Elias ((18,008 feet) and Mount Logan (19,551 feet). I was awed by the hundreds of miles of mountains with virtually no sign of civilization. We eventually came to the southeast part of Alaska...

Jan 26, 2014 - Getting Antsy!

We finally got our rig back from the shop this week. It had been there since November, getting all new awnings and batteries. We are hoping that the new awnings eliminate our water problems (remember the Chinese water torture I persevered in bed when it rained?). Bill has some volunteer work to finish up, which will take at least a week. Once he's free, we are going to watch the weather, find our escape window, and frantically load the rig so we can be on our way! We are planning on heading to south Texas, but we may have to alter our plans...
