Today was a total of 235 miles. All Interstate 25. Real nice and the wind was pushing us along. We got gas in Loveland for $2.19 (9.6 mpg) and again later in Douglas, Wy and gas was $2.09 (9.4 mpg). Gas has been running about $2.30 and up a gallon. If I see cheap gas and have less than a 3/4 tank I stop. Got plenty of time and only going short distances each day. Small camper with no real height means I can pull into anywhere just about. I’ve already turned around in 2 lanes road to go look at something. That’s nice….
Our first stop was Ayres Natural Bridge about 20 miles northwest of Douglas, WY. We were gonna spend the night but it was under construction thus no camping. Anything over 30 foot is going to have some problems with the very narrow road. “No camping over 30’” the sign said and I agree.
We drove on another 25 miles or so and ended up in Glenrock, WY at a Passport America. It was $13.50 for 30 AMP electric, free WiFi and cable TV. Well worth the $13.50 at Deer Creek Village, WY (any size). We got WiFi, cell phone and some local TV channels. The park itself was a diamond in the rough.
These turkeys came through again about 5:30AM this morning while I was doing the blog. It was 30 degrees outside also. Oh yea, when we spent the night at the Missile Silo park we had some hollowing coyotes that night. They were close. How close were they? They were so close I wasn’t gonna open the camper door and see where they were.
Retirement is smelling the cow pastures and being glad you can…
See ya wen we see ya….
