Oct 28, 2006 - Driving on the wrong side of the road

Today we woke after the predictable night of restless sleep but not due to the bed, man that was comfy. We had our showers and then Diane took us to a diner, you know the type that's in the movies, for breakie. It was fantastic. Just as we had hoped. Mum ordered the belgium waffle with bananas and cream. Well that gave Diane and I something to laugh at. It looked as though they had emptied an entire can of whipped cream onto it. It was a massive pile of white. I went for the meat omelette which I couldn't finish...too much meat, too little...

Homeless Jobless Bum

Oct 27, 2006 - More snow

Well the flight process was bad from word go. We got to the airport after being ripped off by the taxi (there had to be one bad person in Memphis), and then found out that everything we owned was going to be gone through. Do they have any idea how long it takes to pack those bags? So privacy violated, treated like a terrorist and we haven't even gone through the customs part yet. Oh yeah, we had that still to come. So we take off our shoes and jackets etc, etc, etc. I take my computer out of it's bag into it's own seperate tray and we do...

Oct 18, 2006 - Mile High City

Mile High City We all three made it to Denver and due to circumstances; we all did not stay in the same RV park. Larry and I and Tony and Juliann all stayed in Englewood, while the Fine's stayed at a state park in Aurora. We are about 15 miles apart. While we were here in Denver, Tony and Juliann spent the better part of two days visiting with friends they have here in the area. Larry and I toured the Coors factory. I guess once you have taken a brewery tour, they are pretty much all the same. I felt this one was very nice and they did...

Oct 16, 2006 - Home at last!

After another day of driving, we're home at last. We left Amarillo at about 8:30am stopping at Lamar Community College to do a short birding of the Willow Creek Nature Area behind the college. Found a few new birds to pad our list. Dave then suggested we eat our lunch in the college cafeteria, which we did! The lunch was as good as any we'd eaten on the road this past month. We arrived home at about 5:30pm and began unloading the car. By about 5:45pm the FedEx truck drove into the neighborhood and delivered our tandem bike in it's case to...

TANDEM TRIP 06

Oct 13, 2006 - Denver airport

We had a 3-hour lay-over in Denver. There is a pedestrian bridge from the main terminal to the first terminal with gates (which seems redundant since all the terminals are connected by subway). It's a very long span since it goes over an active taxiway. You don't often get to watch planes pass directly underneath you, and it seems as though their tails will hit the bridge since there's only a few feet of clearance.

Oct 8, 2006 - Day 1 of planning our trip

Mike and Jenn just laying around, watching Sunday football today. harry's been up in bed all day except for when he hears us in the kitchen....he makes regular visits down here when he hears food! He doesn't know what to expect on his big adventure, but he seems pretty excited to hit the road. He's resting up while Mom & Dad get all the trip details and necessity's together. Leaving in 14 days!

Oct 1, 2006 - Golden, Colorado

Sunday, October 1, 2006 We left at 9:40 am with it being cloudy and 59 degrees. We stopped for diesel in Grand Junction before getting on I-70 and calculated that we were getting about 9 miles per gallon. From Grand Junction to Dotsero, which is one-half of the way to Golden, we were following the Colorado River. Groups and individuals were rafting on the river and there were lots of people fishing. One section of the river was very still so the scenery of red and yellow trees and canyon walls were reflected in the water. We wished there...

Sep 26, 2006 - Denver, Colorado

Ryan managed to get us tickets to the Broncos season opener on September 17th. We arranged a nice kennel in Boulder for Guinness and we booked a lovely suite at the Magnolia downtown. As we drove into Denver on Sunday morning, we could not help but notice the cleanliness of the city. Luckily, the freezing cold weather in Estes did not follow us to the city. The sun was shining and by the time we arrived at Mile High Stadium, the temperature had risen to a warm 70 degrees. All the pre-game festivities were underway by 11am. Ryan was a bit...

Sep 12, 2006 - Kenzy's Trip and All About It

Hey guys! We went our first flight! AT 11:00 O' CLOCK AT NIGHT! We were all tired, but amazingly, we were up all night. They had the little TV's on the seats in front of us, so we convinced mom we weren't tired. We watched Cars, and I found myself watching an infomercial about the "Magic Bullet", a multi-purpose kitchen appliance. It actually looked kind of cool. We slept in Denver for an hour, and then we got on the plane. In L.A, we settled in our hotel, resting a little bit. Then we walked to subway to eat lunch. We watched Hoot, in our...

Aug 25, 2006 - Friends in Denver, CO

We took a day away from the Oregon Trail and drove down to Denver to visit some friends, Ken and Rita Stout. Ken is a retired high executive in a major oil company and Rita was one of my best friends in college and was my bridesmaid in my wedding to my first husband, Don. Rita was a teacher, as I was, and then in educational book sales. She wrote a book a couple of years ago about the death of her daughter from leukemia. We had a very pleasant evening drinking manhattans and a lovely dinner of steak and many vegetables. It was so much fun...

The Kyser Chronicles

Aug 4, 2006 - Littleton, CO

The Great Alaskan Adventure of 2006 is over. Final stats for nearly 120 days: 12,558 miles total 130 miles per day $8,500 total expense (approximate) $ 75 per day (budgeted $100) $1,500 for food purchased in restaurants $2,000 for campgrounds $4,900 for fuel. $ 500 misc. expenses (tires, tours, etc.) I know, it doesn't add up. Big deal. Would I do it again? Yes, but I'd take a boat and a smaller RV. The only problem I encountered was replacement of two tires. Both times close to repair shops.

Jul 28, 2006 - It's a Small World After All

The people you meet on the road can really make the trip for you. On our journey especially, we've met and talked to thousands of people. Most we're meeting for the first time, and some, like friends and family, we've planned to meet along the way. But often it's the most random little connections that make for the most interesting interactions.Arches National Park was a great stop. After spending a night next to Balanced Rock, we hiked "The Windows" (Arches is full of magnificent, naturally formed sandstone mountains, arches, and windows),...
