October 15-21, 2019
After arriving safely at Cheyenne Mountain State Park we headed to one of the Red Robin’s in Colorado Springs, the draw of this one is that our son is a waiter there. After another great lunch there we headed to his place where we got to say hi to his girlfriend before she headed off to work. Plans were made for the next few days and the enjoyment of spending time with Tom, and Krystal, began.
Over the next week we spent their time off enjoying their company and doing a few tourist things.
|Not too many pumpkins due to an early freeze|
We had a couple of days free so we contacted some local friends and arranged some meetups. Unfortunately we due to our time restrictions we weren’t able to catch up with everyone, we’ll try again next year for a longer visit in the area.
We first met Mark & Janell in AZ our first winter there, we’ve caught up with them a few times since. They now have their home base in Salida CO which was about a 2-hour ride from us on a very scenic route. An afternoon of catching up went by way too fast, looking forward to our next catchup.
We met Steve and Cathy on our Alaska Caravan, we had hoped to catch up with them when we were in Ft Collins but alas with our RV issues that wasn’t meant to be. Since there were only about 3 hours between us we decided to meet for lunch in Denver at Rock Bottom Brewery in Centennial, Dave enjoyed his flight A fun few hours and our visit was too quickly over, can’t wait to see them again.
As our departure day neared it was clear that we would be leaving in snow, so once again an adjustment to plans was made and we left Colorado Springs two days early. Very thankful we were able to make it to see Tom and Krystal, going to try and plan our visit a little earlier next year.
Until next time…
