Where are we today

       Another good nights sleep, the only Rv in the corner of this Walmart parking lot and no trucks, gotta love it. Milder last night and bout 50 f when I got up at 5 am. After a walkabout the grounds and the store we secured the coach and hit the road at 8 am then at 8:30 we ran into a bit of fog that only lasted about 30 minutes. The sun came out and the temperatures rose! And they rose.

       Along I-80 we have rest areas at least every hour, perfect. Can get out and stretch feel refreshed and away we go again. Stopped at one about noon, and was so warm shorts and t shirt. made a bite for lunch and heading west. Stopped at a Flying J for fuel (love the rv islands for fuelling). Another hour or so had the air conditioning going in the coach until we arrived at our destination at 3:30 pm.
nice water tower
nice Arch across the road
      Just moving on down the road, satellite radio on we bopping to the tunes, great weather and making good time on the open road. Have I said we love the open road? yup we do.
lots of roads like this
not exciting but very relaxing
Suzie even had a nap
         But now in the mountain time zone it is 2:30. So time to enjoy this wonderful weather 82F ! (28c) who would a thought at this higher elevation and this late in the season. We are not complaining mind you.
       Walkabouts here to stretch some, and more reading done. Research more of our trip, (sure is nice to have our Verizon up and running again) then whipped up supper. Tonight a couple turkey burgers, in the frying pan, not gonna set up our Weber Q in a Walmart parking lot, that is just not right !
     This is perfect weather and we will be looking for more as our journey progresses.
Supper was tasty and hit the spot, now another walkabout and we can relax for the evening.
lotsa trucks over there, we were told to park here
below
no trucks just us = wonderful !
         Quick easy supper and was so tasty, love these Turkey burgers.
perfect way to end the day
        Getting late and time to get comfy for a bit before heading to bed. Blog posted and now can kick back on my recliner in front of the tube for a bit.
        So nice to enjoy the travelling and relaxing at the end of the day. looking forward to being back on the road in the morning.
        And as we reach higher altitudes we will have some colder weather, but our window of opportunity seems to be about right, that was why were rushed to get this far, soon we will slow down a lot more. Smell the roses and enjoy some amazing scenery, at least thats our plan.
         Thanks once again for stopping by and hope you had a great warm fall day too.
343 miles we did today

  2. Glad that the temps suit you... that's a miserable trip if your stop at night is on an asphalt parking lot with the heat rolling off it! You're making good time... won't be long until you're "home".
