Jul 5, 2018 - A pretty gnarly day!

We easily survived the heat of last night's camper and it was a pretty pleasant night after all! It did in fact cool down, we left the door propped wide open all night and it was very cozy! When one sleeps in a farm like environment, you don't really need an alarm to wake up! The roosters pretty much take care of that! But I loved it! The roosters and the birds waking up made it so comforting listening to them all come to life outside so I zipped up my bag, rolled over and dozed off! Actually it is a good thing I set my alarm!! Ate a good...

Jun 11, 2017 - Day 43 - Pueblo to Eads, CO

Today’s century-plus road trip to Eads, Colorado was a flat 114-mile ride with ascent of only 1,217’. Other than Kansas, I imagine that there are very few places where you can travel for over 100 miles and only have 1,217’ of climb during the entire course. The conclusion of today’s journey was Eads, Colorado, population 609 at an elevation of 4,219’. The name Eads was in honor of James Buchanan Eads, who built the Eads Bridge that crosses the Mississippi River near St. Louis, Missouri. Eads was established in 1887 after a couple of name...

Apr 8, 2017 - Heading home

Well we are on our way home. We left the park about 9:00 and headed north. We stopped in San Antonio and met Bruce & Diana for lunch at the Original Rudy's BBQ. They know all the good places to eat! The rest of the day was driving. The Texas wildflowers were blooming. We stopped for the night at Lamesa, Tx.

It was already 88F (31C). We stopped at...

May 23, 2013 - Sand Creek Massacre

So, we are off to the State Park. The park is huge 109 sites and nearly completely empty tonight., $27.00 with electric, no water. We can handle that. We get set up and plugged in and then we are off to Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site. Sand Creek is another 70 miles from here and we don’t leave the site until nearly 2:30. We will have about 30 minutes to view the park. As we arrive at the site we are greeted in the parking lot by the Ranger. He asks a few questions and tells us what we need to do to make the most of our small...

May 15, 2007 - High Plains Drifters

Good afternoon/evening to all- We left from Hugo on Monday morning with a wonderful tailwind. After 5 1/2 miles, we had just noticed that we had left behind the flag for our trailer (Bob), when the owner of the motel, Bill Crossman drove up with it in hand. Saved us from having to ride back and get it. What a considerate gesture. Enjoying blue skies, nice temperature, a tailwind and gradual descent. About 25 miles along we were stopped by a nice gentleman who wanted to take our picture and curious as to where we were going. It turns it, his...
