New tire day! They said I still had about 2,000 left on them but might as well put the new ones on. Jody helped get highway pegs repositioned yesterday and the Ram Mount mounted and reengineered so other than gas, after 12 were ready for tomorrow morning! ... read more

Hello folks, from Salida (pronounced sal-EYE-dah), where Fi and I are enjoying a casual day in one of Colorado's best mountain biking and outdoor sports towns... just a hip, fun town to spend a day or two. From here, our route becomes more remote, mountainous, and arid, so we're soaking up a couple nights of restaurant food and comfy motel beds before we head back out.

One night in Golden and then our as-yet-unnamed RV made it over the Front Range to Salida, where last evening we celebrated Brady and Susie's second wedding anniversary, only a day late, with excellent pizzas and salads. THE FLUFF (I realized how silly, maybe pompous, it is for me to make generalizations about the individual states based on our narrow drive through. But Nebraska did seem more "rugged" than Iowa.) Because of several quirks with the RV, we felt it wiser to go to campgrounds when the temperatures hit 50 or below. At a ... read more
