Jan 25, 2010 - Back home for a short time

As you all know, we traveled back to Colorado on January 25, 2010 to celebrate the life of Chris' mom, Irma Lorene Walker. We spent a month with Dad, first to keep him company after all the rest of the family left and then to just be there for him. Jim got his jury duty out of the way while we were there and on February 26 we headed back to Livingston, where we had left the fifth wheel. We took our time coming back, stopped for a night in Walsenburg to visit with Jim's son, Tom and his family; then stopped for a night in Albuquerque to see...

Jun 10, 2009 - Summer in Colorado (again)

On June 10, we arrived home. We came back to Colorado to get some work done on the RV and to take care of some medical issues.

Jun 21, 2008 - Glad to be back! Sort of

For two nights, Howhee was parked on the street next to Mom and Dad's house. Not wanting to put Mom and Dad to too much trouble, we still slept in our own bed, but availed ourselves of the free laundry facilities and enjoyed seeing Mom and Dad as we hadn't seen them since December. They had been given a new kitten a couple months before and we got to meet "Boots." As the title, indicates, we are glad to be back to Colorado but are also looking forward to continuing our adventures. We are in no way done with our travels!

Dec 17, 2007 - Vacation from vacation

On December 17, 2007, we left our new home in a storage lot in Bullhead City, Arizona. We thought it would be much easier to go back to Colorado for Christmas without Howhee as the weather was not anticipated to be good the whole time we were there. More importantly than being in Colorado for Christmas was being there for Mom and Dad Walker's 60th wedding celebration. 40 people gathered at Farmer's Inn in LaSalle for dinner to celebrate with them. We don't even hold the honor of having traveled the farthest for the celebration as Chris' son...
