07/08/09 Limon, CO to Bar Nunn, WY

We're at another KOA near Casper, WY this time.

We started from Limon, CO and began just as soon as Alex got up - and made me breakfast! We got going at the crack of dawn - 10:00am!

Spent $113 on 50gal of gas. I'm not going to fill up until we leave from Billings, MT (tomorrow). This thing will go about 600mi before it needs more gas, even at 8mpg. I've been driving 65mph, I'm in no hurry to get to Billings. Soup's plane doesn't get in until 11:30pm Thu night. Soup is my brother-in-law and he is flying in from Anchorage to take delivery of the RV and help with the driving. I guess I'll have to show him all the driving tricks I've learned, like driving around corners on two wheels, dodging around those pesky orange cones (they are targets aren't they?) and how to out run those little rascal cops driving those Dodge Chargers (sometimes I like to hide from them too!).

All through northern CO and WY Alex has been amazed at how far we can see, how few ranches there are and the size of our country. We had a discussion about global over population - a laugh actually. You miss so much travelling by air. This has really been awesome.

We went swimming tonight. The hot tub sure felt good on my shoulder. My right shoulder is still not quite up to 100% after my car wreck (that's another story). This KOA site cost $32.00.

Check out the pictures:


  1. Yes, we learned ab out the popcorn setting on the microwave. You do it for popcorn and then add another 1m10sec. - we learned the hard way.

  2. Have you taken it through the drive-thru at Burger King yet?

  3. No but we did try one of those small coffee shops. We blocked the whole place for for an hour while we figured out how to back the rig up a few feet and run for the hills!
