Jul 26, 2008 - Colorado

As usual, we failed to get out early as we had planned (although we did break down the tent in record time today). Once we finally got moving from our campsite in Vernal, we went to Dinosaur National Monument Park, the area in which many fossils and dinosaurs, such as diplodocus and allosaurus, were found. We were planning on going for a hike, but when we got there there was a Ranger tour of the park. Since it was already really hot at 10:30 am (and we didn't have a great breakfast) we opted for the tour, which ironically, did not include...

Jul 25, 2008 - Pushing back home, Denver, Colorado

Well we really feel we are heading back now that we have left Oklahoma and the last of the relatives. It was a priority to see both of Sandy's sisters on the trip plan and we wish we had more time with both of them. I decided to suffer today with a long drive to get to Denver so that we could have an extra day in Utah next week. It was a little tough driving 12 hours, you know it's always longer driving back home from somewhere exciting that you were going too. I am sad that this trip is coming to an end but at the same time life can't be...

Jun 30, 2008 - Casa Bonita!!!

Went to Casa Bonita tonight for dinner. For those of you do not watch South Park, it is a famous mexican restaurant in Denver. Apart from the HUGE line that was there when we got there - it was very cool in a daggy kind of way!!!! I had fun - of course!!! It is deceptively big. Inside it has - a waterfall and cliff divers, black bart's cave (very scary!!! heheehee), a jail area to get the essential wanted photos, a magic show, fire juggling, a mariachi band (I think that's what they are called!) walking around playing music! It was very...

Jun 24, 2008 - Denver

The day began at 4:00 am. We almost missed our flight from Charleston due to a crazy security line. We landed in Denver around 9:30 am. We finally left the airport at 12:00 pm after another never ending line to pick up our car rental. We drove to Alamosa, Co today. The day ended early- in the bed by 8:00 pm.

Jun 18, 2008 - A Walk Downtown

From Cherry Creek State Park – Aurora, CO Our day started by riding the Light Rail System to downtown Denver. The park & ride used for the Nine Mile station is located just 3 miles from the park. With the help of 3 locals at and about the station, we got the tickets purchased, punched and aboard the correct train for our destination. The ride was very pleasant and took just 36 minutes. We both decided that if we lived in the area, this for sure would be the way to move about the city. The State Capitol was our first destination in the...

Home Sweet RV - 2008

Jun 15, 2008 - Leaving Seattle, heading to Denver

Hello everyone, We made it to Denver! Feels great! Lots of sun and great friends! Getting out of Seattle was an adventure. Everything worked out according to plan! Thank you to everyone who made it happen! The drive was fine. Seattle gave us a nice going away present with a little rain on Saturday just as we left. Can you say sunshine, sunshine and sunshine? It hasn’t stopped since we got here. The funny part is – when will it be cloudy again??? I honestly do not know. We have been very busy getting last minute things completed. We were...

Jun 11, 2008 - The Big Leagues

Audrey asked us if we wanted to see a Major League baseball game and we answered ‘Yes!’ immediately. I had never been to a big league game in a large stadium although I have always liked baseball and used to watch the World Series when I was in high school and university. Audrey picked up tickets for a mid-week game and we made plans to meet up with her son Jordan for drinks after the game. The tickets were a steal; in fact we ended up paying almost as much for parking close to the Coors Stadium as we did for the tickets. We were blessed...

Jun 9, 2008 - Musings from the Denver Airport

Sitting in Denver waiting for my mother's flight. Internet is terrible here. Will continue to post without pics until I get to the hotel in Boulder this week. I was going to stop in Vail and work on the blog, but was not impressed at all. So, I am here, wandering around, looking for an electrical outlet and trying to steal internet from a guy named Paul. Cheers, Mel

Jun 4, 2008 - Denver, CO

We arrived in Denver today at our dear friend's house, John and Anita. They have allowed us to park our beast in their driveway and we are actually living in a house for a few days. I fear Don may never leave. They are great hosts! On Thursday, we toured the Coors Brewery in Golden, CO. Its the largest single brewery in the country. Of course, we had samples. Then we walked around the town of Golden. They also drove us to the Red Rocks Amphitheater. Its quite an impressive place. We did not see a concert there, but you could walk all the...

Jun 3, 2008 - Denver With Audrey Hawn

Audrey picked us up outside the terminal and we had a happy reunion right there on the sidewalk. It was only three weeks since we said goodbye to her in Tokyo, but after spending five weeks travelling together, we were happy to visit with her again in her home in Denver and catch up on all her roaming around during the intervening time. She had made a quick trip to Pittsburgh to see her older son Darin, his wife Kristen, and their three children and had also nursed her younger son, Jordan, through painful back surgery. She was more than...

Jun 3, 2008 - Denver

Denver Hotel Best Western Inn Gateway & Suites Tijdsverschil 8 uur (vroeger dan in NL) Vanmorgen zijn we op onze laatste dag in dit mooie land naar Denver Downtown gereden. Denver is de hoofdstad van Colorado gelegen aan de voet van de Rocky Mountains. Denver is één van de hoogst gelegen steden van de VS. De 15e trede van de westelijke trap van het State Capitol ligt precies 1 mijl boven de zeespiegel en Denver wordt daarom ook “Mile High City” genoemd. Denver/Aurora telt ruim 2,4 miljoen inwoners. We hebben als eerste het Colorado’s...

May 30, 2008 - Denver, CO

We arrived at Denver and found our destination easily, since it is right off the highway. The Glass House was like an oasis in the desert of driving. We hardly knew what day it was after having driven so far with some ridiculous hours. We gathered the energy to clean up and head down 16th street looking for somewhere to eat. Since we were in a new destination we wanted to stay away from the chain restaurants. I agreed with Matt, that we did not want to eat at Qdoba. In the distance we caught sight of a neon cactus sign. Suddenly having a...
