10/05 Colorado Springs

Finally! Our trip begins "for real" in Colorado Springs. We are staying at the Mountaindale Campground and RV Resort.  With the words, "RV Resort" you might have some horrible thoughts, but I did a lot of research before I went on this trip, and this campsite's secluded location + amenities (fenced in dog area LOL) really help us.  So far, it's exactly what we expected--quiet, clean, and in the mountains.  Nora is sitting by me right now as I type out this blog post in the middle of her dog area. She's wiped out again, but she loves being off the leash!
Sam and I are doing well. He's being the amazing driver that we love, and I am the obsessed navigator.  Currently, I am fixated on the large scale Rand McNally road atlas.  It's my job to get us where we need to go, so I take my duties very, very serously! Heheh.
Tomorrow, I think our sight-seeing official begins. We have a lot of ideas, but we'll have to decide. Have a great night!


  1. Glad you made it. Enjoy exploring the place.

  2. Wow! What great driving and navigating to make it to your CO destination in spite of delays.
    Don't blow away today (10/6) while exploring!!!

  3. Thanks, Moms! I love the fact that you both are following the trip so closely!
