Hey everyone, thanks for checking back in. Brian and I had a great time in CO springs and the surrounding area. We arrived on Tuesday and are leaving today. I would have liked to stay longer, but there is just too much more to see and do. We’ve posted some pics on Facebook and have now downloaded a new plugin so I can link them in right here!!

Thanks for visiting… wish you were here with us!

Day 1 adventures

Our Path

You’ve got to love technology. On the road with this new Sprint Mobile WiFi hotspot and while on our way to CO our friend Angel says: “you are definitely going to see the Garden of Eden in Lucas, Kansas, right? It’s a trip” and we said, “well, why the hell not.” We actually were in for a big surprise!! Not only was the Garden of Eden really cool but the Worlds Largest Collection of the Worlds Smallest Versions of the Worlds Largest Things Traveling Roadside Attraction and Museum by artist Erika Nelson, was even better! Thanks to Erika, we will now be adding other random Worlds Largest Stops on our adventure.

The Largest Ball of Twine*

Just like the Barry Bonds #73 home run ball has an asterisk so too should the largest ball of twine in Cawker, KS. As it turns out, according to Wiki there are actually a few cities that claim the largest ball of twine and Cawker can more specifically claim the largest ball of twine built by a community. I say this is nearly as impressive as the largest ball of twine built by one person in Darwin, Minnesota, big ups to Francis A. Johnson. Nevertheless we will drive a little out of our way to say we’ve seen it and surely will never recognize the wiki claim that Branson, Missouri believes they too have the largest ball of twine. Good try Missouri, we know you only have one thing that is bigger than KS… idiots!

Thanks for following… we are on our way. more posts this week to include renovation stages and the newly improved Stanley pics! 😉

Where will we go??

The answer is West! We generally know the spots we want to hit but haven’t planned each spot yet.

We know we will start in CO and spend at least a couple weeks there. As many of you know we are big microbrew fans and there are plenty of microbreweries to hit all over CO. We also have family, my Aunt Betsy and Uncle Dave and my cousin, Heidi, her husband, Zeb and their daughter Maya, who is just starting high school and their three doggies and our friends Lauren and Kyle to visit. No doubt we will have plenty to keep us busy the first few weeks.

From there we will head north go through WY, most likely hit Jackson Hole and Yellowstone, then through Montana for a few days and then head up to Vancouver. I know most people would think the place for an RV is in the backwoods of MT but I was just talking to Brian the other day and I am antsy to get to the West coast. There is so much to see before rainy season starts up north. I had lunch with my boss yesterday and he was telling me all these fantastic places to visit in Vancouver, it sure sounds like we could spend a few weeks there and be completely satisfied. The hard part will probably be knowing when to pick up and go on to the next one.

In the meantime we want to hear from YOU! If you’ve been anywhere in the general area that we are going and you think there is a place we just can’t miss, please let us know!! So far huge recommendations on Tahoe, Sedona, Monterey and Eugene stand out as must hits, but I know there are more! Comment on any post you see and let us know if we must take a detour. Thanks for following we look forward to hearing from you.
