Lathrop State Park, Walsenberg, Colorado Yes, we made it! I was aiming for leaving right around 1:00 and, well, it was more like 1:30. But we actually managed to get everything done - packed everything on the list, and a few things that weren’t; got the car fully gassed up, checked the mail, bought a bag of ice, hitched up, took a shower, and then shut down the house electrical and water systems. Makes me tired just thinking of all that! But, in the end, everything got done and it really wasn’t too bad. I think it helped to have a detailed exit plan with dozens of things to check off over the last few days. Yes, probably a bit of OCD shining through, but it helps me cope and not forget things.

Well this is the 2nd time that I am typing this entry...very frustrating! Tom and I left Amarillo this morning at 8:45 and had an easy 5 hour drive through beautiful country on our way to Lathrop State Park. We love staying at this park every year.

We finally left Dodge City @ 8:00am after looking for a radiator repair shop to repair leak and none to be found that was open. The leak kept getting worse and a gallon of water had to be added after every 25-30 miles. We were getting desperate and knew we had to find a radiator shop when we got to Garden City, KS. We went right to Jake's Radiator shop which we'd found on line only to find him closed. We called his number and got the answering machine, meanwhile a man walked up to us, saying he followed us to talk to us ... read more
