August 6th...spent the night at Rock Springs KOA...we had been there in May..ok place to spend the night but nothing special. Alot of locals live there, working people. Still a nice night! Don's birthday today, he turned 52! I remember when he was 6 and I was his reading buddy! WOW!
August 7th...Got up and left fairly early and ended up in Strasburg Co just outside of Denver. We stopped at a rest area and had a nice lunch. WE were trying to meet up with Don and Dana somewhere as we're going east and they're going west. Didn't happen as we took the 287 from Laramie WY and they stayed on 25. Enjoyed our evening and decided not to set the alarm. I've had a horrible cough and it's just taken the wind out of my sails.
August 8th...Well, we slept in and it was about 1100 when we left the KOA! Great, easy morning. We drove on I70 and when we hit the town of Stratton we decided to see if Paul's friends were home. (Ken, KC and Paul visited with them in Sept 2009) Mom and her almost dau in law, Britteny were there, so we visited for about an hour. Very nice people and a nice visit. We left and by then, we decided we weren't going too far. So we came 19 mi over the border of KS and ended up at the KOA in Goodland. Had a really nice afternoon, swimming in the pool (we were the only ones there) did a load of laundry (yes reality catches up )...but a nice relaxing day!!
Saw on FB that Jacob and Aaron started school today! Hope all went well! Jacob in the 6th and Aaron in the 2nd! They grow up way to quickly!!!
