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...

Don't wake me up

Apr 3, 2016 - April 3, 2016

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...

Feb 9, 2016 - In Denver, But Not For Long

We hope to be on our way, headed either south or southeast (whichever way the driver decides to go) by Wednesday afternoon. We are going back down to Kerrville, TX for several weeks. The weather there has been in the 70's, and we can't wait to get away from the snow. We still have snow at our house that never melted from our November storm. I want to be able to wear shorts and sandals in February! Last year, we brought the cold weather down to Texas with us, and we froze our asses off, especially when the RV furnace decided to die once the...

Nov 17, 2015 - Day 1 - Delayed in Denver

We're off to a slow start due to the overnight snow storm in Denver. Traffic coming in to the airport was really light so we were hopeful - but our flight to LA has been delayed about 3 hours. Bright side is that I had two passes to the United Club so we're hanging out in comfy chairs and with free food and drinks. Al's busy catching up on sleep and a Bloody Mary is calling my name.... gotta get this vacation rolling!

Sep 22, 2015 - Rocky Mountain NP

We had a delicious breakfast in Morrisons and then went to the Rocky Mountains NP via Lyons and Estes Park. We were 2 miles above sea level for most of the drive. You could really tell it when you hiked up. It seemed really hard to catch your breath. Tundra has a true meaning now, too high for trees and some snow all year. As everywhere we have been, they are all beautiful in there own way.

Sep 21, 2015 - "Rocky Mountain High"

Bucket list: to see the John Denver statue "Spirit". We stopped at the Colorado Welcome Center and the gentleman gave us a bag of information and said that we would probably want to move here. It is pretty but not Virginia. We stopped in Colorado Springs and toured The Garden of the Gods and the Manitou Cliff Dwellings. Pretty interesting. We got to Denver and quickly sat up camp and ate something because I wanted to get to the Red Rocks Amplitheater. Tonight they were having an invitation only dinner to honor those that got the Colorado...

Sep 19, 2015 - Antelopes!

Denver, CO Cultivated sunflowers are the fourth most common vegetable oil source worldwide. Sunflowers have a long history in the US, dating back at least a thousand years to when they were cultivated in fields by Native Americans. Wyoming has embraced sunflowers as a crop. We saw huge fields of them. Rather than showing us their sunny faces, the heads were all bent, heavy with the mature seeds and ready for harvest. Interesting as the huge fields of sunflowers were, since Jim is heavily into wildlife, the major excitement of the day was...

On the road again

Jul 29, 2015 - Denver, Colorado

We left Douglas, WY after Rocky had a chance to play one more time in the dog park. Now he was tired for the 4 hour drive we had to the Denver area. As we drove through Cheyenne, WY we reminisced about our stops there in the past. And I remembered a very inexpensive fuel stop..... boy, I really do remember very odd things on our trips. So we stopped there to top off the tank. And yes, we didn't pull off the fuel line this time. As soon as we got outside of Denver we hit horrible traffic. It turns out that this is the theme of this area....

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 30, 2015 - Colorado to Indiana

We chased a huge storm across Kansas to Salina. There was hail all over the road and the fields for about 10 miles and there was quite a light show - the lightning was in circles, horizontal (which I have never seen) and the regular vertical variety. It was spectacular. We rolled in about midnight and got up at 5am hoping to get to see part of the Route 40s yard sale in IL and IN before we got to my sister's house. In Missouri, when we stopped, you will see the Cheap Smokes and Liquor Store - what you can't see is that it is in the same...
