Apr 9, 2009 - Denver, CO

We unexpectedly stayed in Denver, CO as a snow storm came in over Rt.70 (our route across Colorado)- so we found a great state park right in the center of town and tried out 17 of the 850 miles of paved bike trails (in the Denver area alone). Bob got to try out his new toy, compliments of Amy - the 85 year old lady who ran into us in Massachusetts.

Mar 29, 2009 - Denver-Golden-Centenial, Colorado

Golden, Colorado 3-29-09 Saturday allowed us to sleep in before visiting our friends Dwight and Patty Kline in Centennial (a suburb south of Denver). It was great to see our friends again with the added plus of seeing their grandson, Tavien. We started in true Jodock fashion with our Lori (GPS system) directing us to the street the Klines live on, and Sandy asked me if I needed further directions which I replied “No, I remember which house they live in.” I spotted their house and pulled into their driveway. It was just the way I...

Mar 29, 2009 - Day 2

Day 2 We woke up to clear weather in Salt Lake City, Utah. Great weather for visiting the Aviary and Temple Square before hitting the road. 15 minutes later....what we now refer to “Snail” in the Jackson Mobile began (a cross between snow and hail). Oh bother….15 more minutes….lots more Snail…..15 minutes later and we have snow….lots an lots of snow…and it’s still falling. It continues to fall until we are out of the state, chains are required, semi trucks are spun off the side of the road…you know…the normal. But before we go I am...

Mar 27, 2009 - Golden, Colorado

Golden, Colorado 3-27-09 The day began cold and crisp, about 18 degrees crisp, making the walk back from the shower invigorating. We didn’t connect the water to our rig knowing the freezing temperatures would ruin the filters and hoses. But we never thought it would be THAT cold. As we ready the motor home to begin the next leg of our journey, I pulled a block out from under the rear jack located behind the axle. That’s strange! I don’t remember icicles hanging down from under the holding tanks before. And now I noticed water dripping down...

Mar 17, 2009 - Stopped in Denver to Visit

We had a great visit with the kids. All the kids were able to come and visit and we all went to a neat authentic Mexican restaurant for dinner. We were able to see Aaron , Melissa , Quinn Erin and Grace and meet Mike and Kay. What a great visit. The evening concluded with a harmony session with the Girls and Grampa bringing up the Bass from the rear. The girls have beautiful voices and grampa's isnt too shabby either .

Oct 29, 2008 - Day 67 Colorado

We got to our friend Kelly's house in Colorado just as evening was darkening the sky. It was so good to see her and she had a wonderful bit of refreshment waiting for us! After dinner we did hurry off and drive the hour and a half to Denver to make the proclamation at the Colorado capitol so we could stay on course for being in Washington DC by election day. As we were reading the proclamation Steve had an insight into the Revelation 14 passage that we had not seen before. Rev 14:14 And I saw: and behold a white cloud and upon the cloud...

Oct 23, 2008 - Rocky Mountain High

The setting sun put on a splendid show for us as we neared the Rocky Mountains off in the distance on the far side of Denver. We arrived just before dark and found our way off the interstate with help from a quick call to Audrey. We told her we were near Murphy Creek Golf Course and asked whether we should head north or south from there. Anil and Audrey had played Murphy Creek in May, so I knew we were close. Once we left the I-470 we found our way easily because we had spent two weeks with Audrey following our return to Canada and the US...

Sep 21, 2008 - Back to Colorado

Back In Colorado Since we last posted an update, we have been back to Yellowstone Park for 4 days, down to the Grand Tetons for 11 days, southeast to Rawlins, WY for 5 days, east to Curt Gowdy State Park for 5 days, and are now in Longmont, CO. I’m tired just thinking about it. Oh, I forgot about Cheyenne, WY for one night. Now I’m really tired. In the past month we have seen our first bear (tying Lowell to the tree with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in her pocket actually worked). The doctor said the scratches would heal in no time...

Sep 17, 2008 - Rocky Mtn.National Park ( Colorado )

Rocky Mtn National Park, As Don previously noted, the drive from Moab,UT to Denver,CO was the most scenic 300 miles we have ever traveled and also one of the most challenging. We passed through Vail, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain and other well known ski areas. All had beautiful lodges and chalet-type buildings, and condos galore, a luxurious playground for the rich and famous. Called the "Colorful State, Colorado lives up to it's name. Quite by chance, the "BEST" was saved for last, and here in Colorado, the Rockies are at their...

Sep 16, 2008 - Kansas to Denver in a Day

When I looked at the Road Atlas yesterday, I told Jim we better stock up on supplies 'cause we'd be crossing miles and miles of barren country today! Well, I was partially right. The stretch of highway between Salina, Kansas and Colorado (all the way to Denver, really) is like a flat-line EKG: flat and straight. Fortuntately, in today's world of gas stations and convenience stores, life does exist at exits (even if the rest of the state is barren). So in Colby, KS we found a super-store and bought enough food for the next couple of days....

Sep 10, 2008 - Colorado Is Beautiful - Even In A Thunderstorm

We've arrived in the suburbs of Denver after driving through Colorado mostly in rainstorms. I'm attaching some pictures taken through the windshield in-between thunderstorms. Don P.S. It rained during the best part of the drive. It's a 13 mile section in Garfield County that has been featured on the history channel and is considered one of the most scenic drives in the U.S. Go to the following website to see the pictures.
