Oct 12, 2018 - Denver, CO to Evanston, WY

Josh was so sweet! He got Bob a bagel for breakfast! Love this kid. I went across the street to Hot Box Roasters and Donuts to get coffee while they loaded up the van. A bit chilly but gloriously clear. We drove Hwy 25 to Fort Collins where we picked up CO 287 to Laramie Wyoming which we think shortened the trip by 20 miles rather than taking Hwy 25 to Cheyenne and Hwy 80. Don’t believe we have ever taken that route. Beautiful red rock mesa formations in the distance and wind that was posted at 50+ mph. Bob did an excellent job of keeping...

Jul 3, 2018 - Evanston, Wyoming

We left Idaho Falls this morning and decided to stop and spend the night in Evanston, Wyoming. Evanston is on Interstate-80 and is just a stop for us. We are staying at Phillips RV Park. It is a pretty nice place, but the scenery is limited. But, the price is right. On to Rawlins, WY tomorrow.

Apr 28, 2018 - Heading to Oregon . . .Via Texas

We aren't in Oregon yet!!! But we are still on our way! The start of the bicycle trip feels like another life, another dream at the moment, we needed to take a small detour for a very special reason. Wednesday morning as we were packed and ready to walk out the door to pick up our one way rental car and we got word that a very dear friend had been moved to hospice. Those of you who know us, know we have been in the Fredericksburg RV Park for 3 years and worked closely with our managers and friends Carolyn and Charlie. Charlie has been...

May 19, 2017 - Phillips RV Park

Just 1 night here What a mess. I80 Eastbound was closed to TRUCK traffic at Laramie, WY. As we drove Westbound on I80 every parking area Eastbound, Every Truck Stop, and parking area were full of Big Rigs. As we approached Evanston someone opened the gate as trucks were headed East. A couple of the pictures show the trucks departing and waiting to depart at Exit 6 and to the RV park.

Sep 19, 2016 - Making progress

I’ve covered quite a bit of ground in the past two days. I left Enumclaw around 8 am Sunday morning, having made the somewhat difficult decision of taking the long route around Mt. Rainier National Park. The locals told me that would be much better than the route through the mountains that Mapquest seemed to think was best. I’ve had reason to doubt Mapquest in the past but locals are usually reliable. The ironic thing to me was how mountainous the better route turned out to be. If that was truly a big improvement over the other route, I am...

Jul 23, 2016 - Eastbound Idaho - On Our Marq

We crossed the lower part of Idaho today, cut across the northeast corner of Utah and landed just into Wyoming. It was a 393 mile day, we did leave early and I got to drive a short stint. We checked into Phillips RV Park in Evanston, Wy. It's not a resort; Our front view is of the highway and railroad tracks. It's an older well-worn RV park but good for the night. Marian

Jun 16, 2015 - Utah travel day...

Today we traveled over 400 miles, way further than we like to drive on any one day. We are trying to make up for the extra time spent in Vegas this year & temps are rising quickly as summer heads in full steam. I talked to Mom after we got settled in this evening & even Ely is over 90 degrees, almost unheard of at their 6500 foot elevation. Especially this early in the year. Sis says it's going to be a hot one since they pretty much had no winter this past year. We'll see I guess. Maybe she knows more than the Almanac, lol! Thunderheads...

Oct 8, 2014 - Evanston, WY - Southwestern Wyoming

(Ron Writing) The wind was calm this morning so we ate breakfast and headed west on I-80. Our plan was to drive to Rock Springs, WY and spend the night there. We got there early this afternoon, ate some lunch and then decided to drive on further. The weather was so nice, the winds were favorable, and we ended up driving all the way to Evanston, WY right near the UT border. That was a beautiful drive through the Green River Valley and the Flaming Gorge area. We got to Evanston around 4:30 and are spending the night here. Fuel price: $3.299...

Aug 13, 2014 - Not happy campers

From Phillips RV Park It has been an interesting day. We got off to an early start because we wanted to meet up with the grandchildren so they could ride back home with us from SLC. About halfway between Cheyenne, WY and Rawlings, WY the motor home went into its safe mode with reduced power. It happened when we were trying to climb a mountain. The engine light also came on. Bill pulled off and turned the MH off. When he restarted it, it had reset. This had happened when we first bought the MH in Oregon and did the same thing when we crossed...

Jun 11, 2014 - Prairie Life In Wyoming

After a workout and healthy breakfast we were ready to hit the road. The leg from Colorado Springs to Denver was beautiful and mostly down hill. The little Prius did great getting 62 mpg as we mostly coasted down. It wasn't long before we were crossing into yet another state - Wyoming. Now we were getting headwinds and our mpg fell slightly below 50. We had a quick lunch in Cheyenne then headed out once again. Today we were only driving 525 miles which now seems easier (never thought I'd say that). So by now you're probably wondering how...

May 9, 2014 - Evanston, WY

Left Wells, NV around 10am (good time for us it seems to hit the road) enroute to Evanston, WY. Boring part of this leg was after passing thru Wendover you go across the Bonneville salt flats which is a drive of about 20 miles or more of straight monotonous road. Lots of rain on this leg going thru Utah and wondering where this system is headed...is it going to be going East along our route? Previously decided not to stop in Utah and continue into Wyoming stopping at Evanston just across the Utah/Wyoming border. Stayed at an OK...

May 27, 2013 - Through the Desert and Salt Flats

Off in the morning and through Salt Lake City with ease…yay! We arrived at the RV park in Evanston, WY, about 2PM. Time for lunch! It's the same RV park that Topper and I stopped at a year ago....it's still very cool and super windy, but no snowfall this time, so Topper and I enjoyed a nice walk.
