For some reason, probably a format thing, I couldn’t post the video our friends took of us leaving. In less than a week, we’ve driven through, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, and are now in Colorado to visit Jeff’s sister and family.
In West Virginia, we stayed in a little campground in Gauley Bridge. Twenty bucks, not a bad deal. We then headed to Loveland, Ohio to see Uncle Ray and Aunt Kathy for a night. They treated us to dinner, I had my first Impossible burger at a nice little restaurant and then the boys beat the girls at Euchre. The next day we landed outside of St. Louis, we didn’t stop to see The Arch, but oh well, who needs to go sideways in an elevator anyway?
Our next night was spent in Junction City, Kansas. Nice little campground. Only thing that was a bit unnerving was the tornado watch that turned into a warning. The campground told us the nearest approved shelter was at a car wash equipment room down the street. I got a “go bag” ready and thankfully the weather never turned nasty enough for us to leave. A neighbor camper said if the sirens went off he would take us, because of course, our battery was dead in the tow car. Rookies, we have since learned how to avoid that happening, charging it over night or running the car during a lunch stop or both.
Last night we stayed just in the Colorado border a small distance in Stratton. Small town but big enough for a night.
More photos to follow, it takes a while to upload them with my internet connection at the moment. Maybe after dinner.
