…was a hazy day. The smoke from the burning Pacific Northwest had reached central Colorado. It came in yesterday, but was very noticeable today as we left. The brown that settled over the city made taking pictures out the window of the truck even more fruitless. They all came out blurry because the camera couldn’t focus on anything unless it was less than 10 feet away.

Today we drove the first 350 miles of our home stretch and landed at a campground in Casper, WY. We’ve been in better campgrounds and we’ve been in worse. This one was right next to the interstate AND railroad tracks…double whammy. The train whistle is loud, but at least it doesn’t sound as it’s passing the campground. It’s a bit windy, maybe it’ll blow the smoke away…maybe it’ll just blow more in. We’ll have to see what tomorrow brings.

"Air Force Station. Where the President goes to hide if necessary." "His super-secret hideout?...with exit signs on the highway?" "Yes."

"And guards up the road if you go too far (people do live up the road, but not too far)." "Is there a foam plug like what Sadam had?" "For the President?" "Yes, in the super-secret hideout." "Not that I'm aware of. Lol." "It's probably more like the Bat Cave. It looks like the Bat Cave."

The Brownest Skies You've Ever Seen Are in Colorado Springs

It's not out fault
If the west coast wasn't on fire, we wouldn't have brown skies!
