Jun 18, 2018 - Loveland CO

We hit the bricks about 10:30 Wednesday morning and headed west on U.S. 34 through Big Thompson Canyon and in about 40 minutes we were in Estes Park and on our way to the Fall River entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. After purchasing one of our most used items, the National Parks Annual Pass, we pushed onward and upward on an awesome ribbon of pavement, Trail Ridge Road, the highest continually paved road in the U.S. https://www.myrockymountainpark.com/road-trips/tour-trail-ridge-road. It gives, as one would expect, amazing views of...

Jun 13, 2018 - Loveland CO

Sunday afternoon I did a little recon mission to make sure I could find the repair shop…and I’m glad I did. First attempt by the GPS took me to a school playground...wrong. Second attempt by entering the address I had in another spot in the GPS took me to a farm...wrong again. Third time was the charm. I used another address that I found online and this time Google Maps was right. If this would have happened in the coach on Monday, I would have been mightily upset to say the least. Since my appointment wasn’t until 2:00, I just hung around...

Jun 3, 2018 - Loveland CO

We decided to not go sightseeing Friday but maybe we should have. Michele ended up cleaning the house while I did some minor tinkering things then washed and detailed the outside of the Jeep so we are more tired than we should be. I have been watching the smoke from the Pass Creek Fire that is burning 8 miles southwest of us. There wasn’t anything on the Denver news about it so maybe it isn’t of interest to them but our neighboring campers have been peering that direction a lot and there are air tankers dropping water and retardant on it....

Jul 23, 2015 - Colorado - a new state for us

On Sunday, the 19th, it was time to head to Coloraddie – a new state for us. We took secondary roads of course, except for a short segment of I-76. Once crossing into Colorado it was a continuation of farms and ranches. It was pretty much the same as NE with one exception – the roads are NOT as good! Some segments were quite rough. But we covered the 160 miles in good time and with no problems. We passed several historical markers as we often do. There are some very large feedyards in this area - not a place to live close to! We also passed...

Jun 20, 2015 - Returning To Loveland, Colorado

Having left Loveland two years ago, we acknowledge that it is a booming place. We were surprised by the growth that has occurred. Traffic seems to have increased by two-fold. We found ourselves avoiding Hwy 34 (Eisenhower St) whenever possible. It was stop and go regardless of the time of day. It was great seeing so many friends and yet we left town before we could connect with everyone we had hoped to see. We spent Sunday – Thursday each week at Boyd Lake Campground and the weekends at Sams which allowed us to extend our time from two...

Jun 17, 2015 - Mountain Drive

We drove 300 miles yesterday. The first segment was from our campground 12 miles west of Gunnison to the top of Monarch Pass at 11,300 feet. We decided to drive the car separately from the RV. It was a beautiful drive. As we made our way east, we went through many lush valleys with beautiful ranches featuring cattle and horses. (Note that the map does not show our route correctly. We went east on US 50 to Canon City, near Pueblo and then north on I 25 to Loveland which is north of Denver.) The drive up the pass, which was about 12 miles...

Jun 13, 2015 - Plan B ... Or C?

Not getting the truck repaired until Friday, we realized we had run out of time to enjoy Durango. We have reservations in West Yellowstone that have been in place for months. Knowing how crowded Yellowstone gets as July approaches we doubted we could change our reservations satisfactorily at this late date. So Plan A was out. That leaves us 4 days to get to West Yellowstone. Plan B - head west over Wolf Creek Pass, spend one day in Durango then drive thru Utah to West Yellowstone. Plan C -head east back to Walsenburg then north to Wyoming...

Dec 7, 2014 - Radio Control in Longmont, Colorado

12-7-14 The Longmont RC scene The last few days have been busy ones. More of the same. Dealing with the pressing matters of closing an estate in a limited time frame. Today Julie said, “Why don’t you go find some flying fields and hobby shops today?" I always do what I’m damn well told, so I was out of there after breakfast. Julie plans to hole up in the room and wade through paperwork and work her phone. According to the AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) web site, there are seven Model airplane clubs within 25 miles of our hotel in...

Dec 6, 2014 - On North Fork Road

12-6-14 On North Fork Road in Glen Haven Went up to North Fork Rd in Glen Haven today to unload the vehicles of the items we moved out of Bill’s apartment in Loveland. Turns out that Sandy, Doug, Leslie, and John had already unloaded Doug’s truck and moved everything in the garage over to one side so Bill’s Yukon could be parked inside. They were supposed to wait for us to help . I think I have mentioned before that Bill has great friends and neighbors. If you are shy or reclusive, you had better stay out of sight in this community....

Dec 5, 2014 - Celebration of life, Northern Colorado style

11-5-14 The last few days have been very busy ones. Julie has spent all her time on the phone, taking care of a lot of business and making final arrangements. It will be a long process, but she is getting the most urgent things done while we are in Colorado. I’m doing what I can, driving, lifting the heavy stuff, and fetching tea forJulie. The weather has been perfect. During our trip up to Estes Park, we saw Mountain sheep on the road side and lots of elk in town. Our biggest worry was placing Bill’s dog, Charlie. A good friend took...
