May 25, 2016 - Home at last!

We got home Wednesday afternoon. It's been a fun and exciting trip, but as always, the best part of any trip is coming home! We all agreed our favorite spots were Gulf Island National Seashore, and Bradenton, Florida. Bill and I are fond of statistics, so here are some fun facts about our trip: Number of days - arrived home on the 58th Number of miles traveled - 6945 Number of States visited - 14 Number of campgrounds - 40 nights at 10 different sites Number of Walmart overnights - 6 Number of nights spent with friends and family -...

May 4, 2016 - Travel Day - Colorado

Tuesday, May 3 Lynd repaired the electrical problems we encountered with the RV on Monday evening. We spent Tuesday morning with him doing that and me doing laundry. Now everything is fine once again, so we did some more exploring. We drove to the small Kansas town of Lindsborg, which is known here as "Little Sweeden". It is very picturesque, with brick streets and artwork decorating the sidewalks in front of local businesses. The town has "The Sweedish Pavilion" that was made in Sweeden and shipped to the US for the 1904 World's Fair held...

2016 RV Trip

Apr 7, 2016 - Pikes Peak

Our ride up Pikes Peak was like every train ride I have been on uneventful. It took one and 1/2 hour to get to the top. Temperature was 21 degrees with the wind chill it was 9 degrees. That was cold and it reminded me how much I hate cold weather. I believe everyone had a good time. Cassidy probably would have been happier at the beach. But she has seen apart of the USA she hasn't seen. We really enjoyed our time with Zack,Grace and Gunnar they grow up so quick. Time just keeps flying by.

Apr 5, 2016 - mountains

We made an effort to go over the Rocky's to Grand Lake at Granby on the western side. We had been there a couple years ago and I was still wanting to see moose there. We had gotten off I70 onto 40 heading up the mountain and it started snowing. Temperatures were in the upper 50's when we left Denver. The snow got harder and the temp went down to 27 degrees we turned around and headed back to Interstate 70. It wasn't snowing their. So we headed west again on the interstate. We stopped at a town visiter center and talked to them about going...

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...

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...
