Catching Up

We spent four wonderful days with our friends, Roger & Elaine in Burdett, KS. We first met them in 1972 at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary when Roger and Dan were both studying for the ministry. Circumstances have taken us in different directions over the years, but every time we get together we just pick up where we left off. Roger arranged for Erin to do some horseback riding and ride in a combine. She sure enjoyed the horses; and was calling her Dad to see if he would buy one of them for her. NO, we aren't pulling a horse trailer. :)

While in Burdett, we parked our rig at the city park. There was a 50amp electrical service and after some adapting of electrical connections by Leonard, who works for the city, we were able to use both air conditioners. The weather really wasn't as hot as we were expecting for June. Cool nights and daytime temps in the 80's.

We left Burdett on Monday and stayed at Shady Grove RV Park in Seibert, CO last night. It's a Passport America park. The sites are gravel, but fairly level with FHU's. Seibert is a VERY small town with not much to see or do, but it's a nice overnight stop before starting across Colorado.

We are now at Cherry Creek State Park in Denver. This park is on the southeast side of Denver, but inside the loop. It is so big, you don't even know the city is just a short distance away. The roads are asphalt with concrete, level pads. And there is quite a bit of space between the sites. There are lots of trees, but most sites are fairly open. We're visiting my sister and her husband for a few days before we move on to help Tim and Karen get moved in to their new home in Carbondale, CO.

Our site at Cherry Creek State Park, Denver, CO. They really need rain as you can tell by the dry grass.

We'll be in a National Forest campground just south of Carbondale with no hookups. We'll see how that goes. :) Hoping that someone cancels and we'll have electricity. Otherwise will have to run the generator every day to keep the freezer going. Will keep posted as to how that works.

More later......
