Over too fast!

Our time near Glenwood Springs, Colorado, was over before we knew it and unfortunately obligations had us moving on.  We could have easily stayed another week or two….. or even three and been quite content.  My view every evening……ahhhh!sunset in Colorado

Alas, we needed to return to Grand Junction for some appointments.  Let’s check out our new antenna flying proud as we mosey on down the road.  Although we don’t need to raise and lower this new antenna, it is a good idea to have the pointy end of the boomerang design pointed forward for aerodynamic reasons.RV travel in Colorado

With all the fixes on the RV complete, we scheduled some normal maintenance in Grand Junction for the F-250, the Tacoma, and hubby.  In early April when Al initially contacted the VA for his yearly physical, he was told they couldn’t get him in until September and then low and behold an end of May opening became available.  I’m sure this whole VA investigation stuff had something to do with the timely opening.

Regardless, Al is in tip top shape.  The trucks are in tip top shape.  The RV is hopefully in tip top shape and we’re antsy to embrace our summer travels.  Fingers crossed all the mishaps are behind us because I’d like to go back to feeling excited on moving day instead of feeling fear or dread….. “Will Murphy get us today?”RV cartoonThat said and appointments behind us, we find ourselves back in one of our favorite spots; Ridgway State Park.  The San Juan Mountains are still covered in a deep layer of snow making for a beautiful sight.Ridgway State ParkWe have some hiking planned and social get togethers scheduled.  Should be a fun week….Ridgway State Park

  1. Can’t wait to the day we can spend some real time in CO, not too many more summers and we will be in the west.

  2. Yep getting back to ‘normal’ can be somewhat elusive at times. I think we have a handle on our over heating issue. Fan Clutch, sure seems like that may be it, I have been told we should have heard a loud roar when it locked up and cooled down things on those long climbs. We never heard any loud roar. Anyway we have the new fan clutch and unless we have an extremely hot day, we will not know till we pull out with the 5er hooked up. Fingers crossed.
    That antenna pointed in the right direction should give you just a little lift too!! LOL

    • I never imagined how social RVing along with the blogosphere could be. We’ve met some amazing people and developed some lasting friendships along the way. A sense of camaraderie for sure!

  3. What a gorgeous place! Isn’t it wonderful to have so many options when we’re full-timing? From one beautiful location to another. Our revisit list is getting longer and longer, too. πŸ™‚

    • I have to admit, I am feeling pretty fortunate these days. The Colorado mountains usually have that effect on me. We’re discovering how much we enjoy ‘revisits’ πŸ™‚

    • We love it here as well, and much to our surprise there are wildflowers blooming. Not quite as stunning as in mid July, but beautiful all the same.

  4. Your month sounds just like ours! My RV checklist of little things to fix is complete, the F250 is all tuned up, and we have been cleaning everything in the RV. Last doctor appointment was this morning and now I am ready to leave in two days for our summer adventure. Safe travels to you guys, and may there be many stunnung views!

    • It always feels good to get those necessary tasks taken care of. I look forward to following your summer travels. So many places, so little time πŸ™‚

  5. You are sad to leave the one beautiful view to go to another beautiful view… how lucky can one be… glad all things, including Al, checked out as being in tip top condition…

    • I know…..tough job isn’t it? It’s always reassuring to have everything including hubby in good working order πŸ™‚

  6. Leaving that location would also make me sad. But, there seems to always be another great one just up the road.

  7. Ingrid both spots look stunning! What views you have outside your window. Glad everyone is in tip top shape including the antennae! πŸ™‚

    • Tough job to go from one stunning view to another but I’m up for the task πŸ™‚ Yep, good to have everything working again!

    • We’ve called Colorado ‘home’ for nearly 20 years and never tire of it. Let me know if I can offer any recommendations πŸ™‚

  8. I can see why you are sad to leave that gorgeous scene but it looks like more breathtaking scenery out your door. You seem to be in the perfect location for some stunning landscape shots. Looking forward to many more. πŸ™‚ We will be in the Denver area late September for a wedding. It will be good to be back in Colorado, even if only for a short time.
