Sep 28, 2007 - Pueblo, CO
Today we traveled to Pueblo, CO to pick up mom's packet of papers so she can get ready to go to work. A few months ago, we took a trip from Colorado to Oregon and back. Dad's buddy CW and his wife Becki traveled with us in the motorhome. Their granddaughter Kennedy also traveled with us. We had a great time with them. So, now that we are in Pueblo, we are going to stay with them. Actually, we are staying with CW's mom, in her driveway. Mom needs to get a physical on Monday for her new job, and CW and Becki want to take us to the Garden of...Jump to full entry
Jun 14, 2007 - Movin' On to Pueblo, CO--Our 20th State!
06-14-2007 Movin' On to Pueblo, CO--Our 20th State! Thursday, June 14, we had a leisurely breakfast, I walked and stretched. Then Carmella and Hershey helped us pack up. Bob caught Carmella red-handed stealing the plastic cover off of our greasy trailer hitch (and we thought the wind got the first one yesterday!) We left at 11:00 saying goodbye to Karen. We had a short run to get up speed for Raton Pass, elevation 7,800 feet. It was all to no avail as road construction slowed all of the traffic to 35 mph at the base of the hill. We made it...Jump to full entry
Jan 9, 2007 - You know you're not near the Equator anymore when.......
We returned to the house about 1:30 am this morning after a very long day! The two four-hour flights were reasonable, but the 9 hours in Miami was not. We did use the time in Miami to update photos to the website, but at a painstakingly slow pace. The WiFi available through the Miami Airport Hotel was almost as slow and unreliable as dial-up! Anyway, we made it home to partially cleared streets from the three major snows we missed by being in South America. Dave's son, who was in the house while we were gone says we missed nearly 40 inches...Jump to full entry
Nov 10, 2006 - Old Colorado City
We began to get the camper van ready for returning. It has been a good little home but man do we have stuff everywhere. It might take us a while to get this sucker ready for returning. After Diane picked us up she took us to Garden of the Gods. It's an open park with rock formations that at least seems to be kept in good condition. It is quite stunning in parts an worth a look if you are in the area. We then headed on to Old Colorado City. There was a lot of little stores and we had fun going from one to the next. One of them had these...Jump to full entry
Aug 11, 2006 - Pueblo West, Colorado
8/11 - 8/13 It was a beautiful 164 mile drive to Pueblo West, Colorado. We crossed the Rocky Mountains and the Continental Divide at Monarch Pass - 11,312 feet above sea level. This is the highest spot on US50 and starts our downhill section which will last until we get to the Missouri River. Pueblo West is a small town just west of Pueblo. Denver is about 110 miles to the north. One day we drove to Denver to visit with Joan's niece Blythe Barney. She lives in a beautiful loft close to downtown. After giving us a tour of her loft she took...Jump to full entry
Jul 15, 2006 - Salida to Pueblo, CO
The group didn't like leaving Salida in the morning as we drove to Westcliffe through beautiful mountain valleys that were framed by the high Sangre de Cristo Mountain range to the south. After starting our ride with a climb, which included Dave's chain breaking; we enjoyed a terrific and quick downhill ride to Pueblo. Enroute we saw to the north Pikes Peak. It was a long way away , but it magnificently dominated the horizon. Pueblo welcomed us as we had a breakfast picnic in their City Park. Meanwhile, Jay packed up his bicycle and shipped...Jump to full entry
Jul 3, 2005 - Colorado
07/01/05 Another early start. We "hit the hay" at sundown and get up at sun up. Janet starts the driving today. The roads here are great and the traffic minimal. In a few miles we will cross into the third time zone since we left Dayton. After about 70 miles we leave the Interstate system and drive the two lane roads for the rest of the day. Janet stays at the wheel for 30 miles or more on the two lane roads before turning the fun over to me. We only have 300 miles to go today; so, we are taking our time and stopping for pictures. We pass...Jump to full entry
