One really important tip I can give you about successful RV traveling is you have to learn to take every situation and think about the appropriate action or reaction. You can’t get away with much. For instance…the cockers got to the recliners this morning before I did. That was bad enough, but the cat chased one of them off and got a recliner all to herself. The cockers were now both in MG’s recliner. I can’t chase the cat off because I’m afraid of her.
I’m bummed. I really don’t like this little couch…I almost asked Kip and MG if they would chase Dollie off Kip’s recliner so I could sleep in it, but I noticed Kip was sitting on the floor, so I used the appropriate action. I asked MG if she would chase the cockers off of her chair. She said, “No…I guess you’ll have to be alert and wait for your chance.”
We left Pueblo yesterday and drove to Loveland, Colorado, where we met Kip’s sister, Karlyce, and her husband, Dave, at my favorite restaurant…Cracker Barrel. MG loves their chicken and dumplings, but sometimes she gets an open faced beef sandwich because she knows how well I like beef. It was not to be. MG said it was so good, she forgot and ate it all.

Next, we drove the 120 miles to Laramie where Kip’s 55th high school reunion will be held. The road was one long incline. Laramie is at 7200 ft above sea level. Here are some pictures MG took as we slowly climbed up and up. I was worried I wouldn’t have enough oxygen in Laramie. Dogs need a lot of oxygen to pant.
After lunch, Karlyce and Dave drove up to their cabin in Red Feather, which is off the same highway as Laramie. We actually saw piles of hail along the side of the road. Good thing we didn’t leave earlier.
MG called Karlyce to make sure they missed the hail. By that time the temperature had dropped to 40 degrees. Karlyce asked if we had a fireplace in our bus. MG told her no, but there is a universal burn ban on RV’s anyway…no firewood allowed.
It did get cold during the night, but this morning was beautiful. We get to go on lots of long walks everywhere we travel.
Sammie and Pattie stopped to sniff out a rabbit…I missed the scent. I’m craving beef and I know MG is having a big juicy steak for dinner/supper.
Well, the reunion starts tonight, so I will let you know what I hear about how it went. Sometimes I over eavesdrop.
