Heading Down The Road

We reluctantly left Fort Collins on Tuesday.  We spent just over two weeks there and the weather was definitely changing for the worse.  We experienced a few days of snow and it was below freezing every night for the last few nights.  Time to head out!  I’m excited to come back in the summer when we’ll get to explore more of this beautiful state.

Can’t drive in this stuff!

It was a good day to travel.  The sun was shining and the wind was light.  We drove a few hours to Lamar which is in the southeast part of Colorado.  We had planned on staying just one night but when we got there the winds picked up and we rocked and rolled ALL night long.  We decided the next day it was NOT a good day to travel.  The wind was coming out of the north and we were heading east so that meant a side wind.  Not good in a RV.  Luckily, we don’t always have to stick to a plan.  We are free to wait out the weather.

We left the next day and headed to Plains, Kansas where our good friends, Mac & Lynette (Netters) were visiting their family.  We hadn’t seen them in such a long time and since we were so close we decided to stop in.  They invited us to their Granddaughter’s basketball game and then to their daughter’s house afterwards.  What a nice surprise.  Dana had cooked a roast with mashed potatoes, brussell sprouts, salad and even dessert!!  We certainly didn’t intend on intruding on their family time but they insisted.  We had a GREAT time with Dana and her family.

So today we have left Plains and as I write this we are following Mac and Netters to Amarillo where they will be staying for awhile.  We are only staying the weekend but we’ll get to meet more of their family while we’re there.

See?  We really WERE in Kansas

We had to pass through the Oklahoma panhandle to get to Texas.  This is one of the lamest State signs I’ve seen

Then we finally made it to Texas where we’ll be staying most of the winter.
