A Traveling We Will Go…..

Mr. T and I loaded up the Minnie with food, adult beverages, dogs, quarters and the required electronic gear: Kindle, 3 laptops, iPod, 2 radios,2 cell phones, 3 cameras, chargers for all the above–you know, the stuff you can’t live without. We’ve been on the road 4 weeks now and I’m writing from Lake Superior. I thought a picture update would bring my 12 faithful readers up to date.
Day 2
Blew a tire in Nevada and had to replace all 6 RV tires. We’d asked for this to be done before leaving California but had been reassured that the tires were all good to go.

Wyoming–pipes began to freeze and break

Wyoming–snow really hits and we spend a night on I-80. Truckers do not turn off their engines. It was a giant parking lot.

Still Wyoming! Still Snowing!

We got out! 2 days behind schedule and finally into Colorado. We have had to stop 3 times for repairs to the RV. My first snow experience was good the first 15 minutes. By the 4th day, I wanted my sunshine, patio tomatoes and umbrella drinks back in my life.

Three days spent at National Jewish Health being tested and re-tested. The place is amazing. Fire Congress and put them in charge of running the country!

Meanwhile, after 5 snowy days, we push onward towards Wisconsin. Who knew there were so many states between Colorado and Wisconsin?

More later–Nebraska nearly did me in. However, the Bailey Train Yard was incredible and gets an A+. Railroad buffs find a slice of heaven.

More to come……..At least it had stopped snowing.

    I suspect you have far more than 12 readers! You have two in Poulsbo, WA and a 74 y.o. farmer in Kansas who read you regularly, even if we don’t comment. She has commented that she feels she knows you. She’s afraid of the internet, so likely won’t ever comment, but she’s out there pulling for you through your travels, and travails.
