I just spoke with ColoradoLady. She's at the RV dealer in Ft. Worth, camped in their wash bay for protection from the thunderstorms. She has seen Goliath!

Thanks, guys. This is a bit unusual as camp sites go! But, I am here safely, BAMBI is inside and undamaged. If I had been caught in the storm, there may have been a different outcome. I did not mind sitting inside watching the pouring rain with hail.....knowing it could cause no damage.

Had a nice talk with Mimi earlier. I look forward to meeting , in person tomorrow. Seems to be a kindred spirit. Caught up on emails, phone calls, forum. Now, heading to bed, perhaps to dream....of camping with "Goliath"!

You had a long day, Evelyn, and I was getting a bit concerned you'd been caught in those storms somewhere.

Now, you can get to know your new baby and begin a new chapter in your Adventures.

I think you will love the Interstate.

I would say that towing 3 days, and so far south, was a bit of baptism by fire....but, you planned it yourself and executed it flawlessly!

Glad you, Bambi, and Goliath are safe in Ft. Worth. I am sure you are "overloaded" with new things to learn but what a great place to do that, at the dealer. Best of luck.

I know! I forgot to bring wine! I guess I'll wait to get home...then, celebrate. Thanks for all the well wishes, folks! Evelyn.

One thing at a time, Maggie. I did not even think to bring a camera! That time will come.
I did get to celebrate with a bit of wine, provided by my sweet sales guy. He and my service guy, instructor extraordinaire, joined me. It was fitting.

So much to learn, but, Richard was very patient with me and gave me a lengthy, in depth in service. Everyone there at Vogt RV were very nice...treated me like family. I highly recommend them to everyone. Well worth the trip from anywhere!

Wednesday, I fly back to get "Goliath"! It will be so nice to have my own bed with me, and not need to try to find a good safe motel room...(long story)!

Sounds like things are moving along. Good luck with the remainder of the trip.

Evelyn's great adventure will continue....after I spend another night at Vogt RV, then begin my trek back to Denver in "Goliath"! I want to avoid the lengthy drive through lonely plains (and horrible winds) of Kansas...so I may try a route going west through Amarillo to Raton Pass and up I25N to home. So, back to the drawing board...cancel 3 RV sites, and regroup for return trip. Who knows, I may even try a Walmart O/N, or ???

In my long...long...13 1/2 hr drive home yesterday, I did a layover in a truckers parking lot....among the BIG RIGS...waiting for the sun to go down. Driving straight west into the sun was a BEAR!!! When it became intolerable, I followed the truckers, and tucked right in among them....just me in my Pathfinder. Then, they sort of kept me company on the long drive across the plains of Ks and east Co In the dark. I finally reached home at 11:30 last night....tired, hungry, aching, and a bit of a nervous wreck. But, I did get here without any damage and fell into my very own bed.Aaaahhhh! Relief!

I will never make that long a trip without stopping to sleep, (I did get a couple quick 10 minute power naps at rest stops)....among the truckers parked everywhere. Somehow, I felt safe in their anonymous presence. Now, my bed will always be WITH ME when I travel. There is a level of assured safety in knowing that I do not need to exit my home on wheels to rest, eat, attend to private matters, etc. and, certainly, my little Mikki...my little bitty yappy chihuahua will be there as my alert system. "Little Friends" will be available, as well.

I am ready to travel!!! Let the fun begin!!!

Glad you are safely at home, Evelyn.

You might poke and meander a bit on your return trip with your new rig...stretch its legs and yours, find a few spots of interest to stop at.
