Longmont to Lamar Colorado…

We pulled out of the Boulder County fair grounds early this morning, with a few stops for email, and supplies we headed south and east, east and south for 237 miles till we parked at Sportsman RV park in Lamar Colorado. It is a nice park and priced very affordable. We drove by where we used to live in eastern Aurora and almost did not recognize anything. As we were driving south and east through the vast flatland that is eastern Colorado, a real contrast to where we spent most of August and September, we pulled into Kit Carson Colorado. Looked for a post office sign, at least the government didn’t take those down, made a right turn and came face to face with a tumbleweed invasion of the little town! Norm and I started to bail out to assist the town’s folks battle these nasty bushes. But, as you can see from the photo, they had every tool from the local area brought to bear on the round weeds. They had men, they had women, they even had kids, they had fire, they had rakes, they had riding mowers, and they had a back hoe! We have never been more proud to be Americans! Slowly, we walked to the post office to buy some post card stamps, you guessed it,2013 10 11_1503 closed at noon for the day. Cursed administration…

We live and travel full time in our fifth wheel or cargo trailer. We work for the Lord Jesus Christ in Disaster Relief Ministry. When not doing any of the above we try to have as much fun as we can. Possible items you might find here, in no particular order, dirt bikes, quads, hiking, camping, desert living, building projects, stained glass projects, our family, Bible study, RVing stuff, nutrition comments, and just about anything else we can think of....
