Hitting the Rainbow really, really soon

Friday morning around 8 a.m. we will once again hit the road. The picture that Sarah W posted of the campground in Dolores, CO got our feet to itchin'.

With two of our grandkids (Grace age 14 and Dru age 8) we are headed west. St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Amarillo, Flagstaff, and finally the Grand Canyon. From there to Durango, CO and hopefully Priest Gulch CG. Then it's to Pike Peak. Next comes Rocky Mountain National Park. The kids should love it. They're never been past St. Louis. Seeing the reactions will be PRICELESS!

No time for mini-C's unfortunately. We have to cover a lot of territory in 14 - 18 days.

The Rainbow awaits.

Awning fixed, toilet fixed and bedroom slide fixed!

While at home and nosing around I found a front wheel bearing seal leaking on The Discovery. Now a trip to Freightliner! Man how I love to spend money.

Hi Steve,
If you get a chance when in Amarillo, take the kids to Palo Duro Canyon, it is the Grand Canyon of Texas. They also put on an outdoor play and it is worth the viewing.

For a place to stay, we stayed at the Oaisis RV Resort in Amarillo. It was a 30 mile drive to Palo Duro. Also, Palo Duro has campgrounds. Make sure the brakes work going down into the canyon, if you go. It is a 10% grade going down.

I have a keyboard of ton of emotes on my Galaxy too. Just haven't figured out how to get them to work here. The are all rugs there on text message.

And the drop down from the app only has a few rows of smileys. No etc. So far I have not found anything the iPhone can do that the Galaxy can't - but some things are in different places. And in this instance I think it's a user error - learning curve.

Still having fun learning!

Thanx Wayne, will keep that in mind and see if it fits into our tight schedule to make the far west. We'll obviously be bypassing numerous note worthy sites along the way that we just can't take time for this time out.

Really want the kids to see something totally awesome. A hill higher than 300 feet tall. A natural wonder that's breathtaking to see. etc. etc. etc.

The experience might cause these youngsters to come back home and give "the traveling bug" to their parents. The Journey is the Destination.

OK. You need a mascot named "Wally."

That's a nice looking Beaver. Love the mid-side entry. We have that on our bus, which is as rare as hens teeth. One of the great advantages is having a nice smooth floor for the co-pilot; no step well.
