You have a nice looking outfit!

I've visited and camped in the Ranchester WY area a number of times - I'm a history buff on the Plains Indian wars from 1865 to 1890. Ranchester is in the heart of many significant historical sites if you are interested in that kind of thing - the Bozeman Trail goes right through where you are going, and the Little Big Horn national monument is an easy day trip if you camp in Ranchester or Sheridan.

I wish I was heading there again - this is a perfect time of year to visit that area

This is the 4th year in a row that we we are camping at Ranchester and visiting the Bighorn National Forest. This is the best area that we have found for Moose viewing. This year, we also plan to camp in Buffalo, and explore the southern regions of the Forest.

If you go through Thermopolis on your journey, be sure and stay at the Fountain of Youth RV Campground just north of town- they have their own huge hot springs pool just steps from your rig. Once there, you won't want to leave! Have fun- tim

We decided to lay over for another day in Hillsboro. The weather forecast for the area into central Oklahoma where we were heading called for severe thunderstorms and hail. Lucy doesn't like hail.

We took a ride down to Waco and had lunch at the club (Sam's Club). We took in the sights in West, Texas, north of Waco. There is an 1890 movie house here that still has its original pressed tin marquee.

We hope to head up to Enid, Oklahoma tomorrow.

We got to Enid, Oklahoma yesterday. We have spent the last couple of days here visiting with an old friend, and touring around the Enid area.

We plan to head out with Lucy tomorrow and travel the center of the Oklahoma Panhandle on US 412.

We took a bunch of pictures in downtown Enid. They have some really neat old buildings.

We have been camped at the High Point RV Park here in Enid. We have stayed here several times. It is very nice and quite reasonable, $45 for two nights including tax. It has full five point hook-ups.

Well, we got out of Enid this morning, and headed west. We did have a problem this morning. Lucy's water heater, which worked last night, would not work this morning. I have already reached out on another thread for some help on this matter.

We did the entire Oklahoma Panhandle on US 412. The road was great. There was some four lane, but mostly two lane. We were about the only ones on the road. This highway is very sparsely traveled. At some points, we went for fifteen minutes without seeing another vehicle in either direction. There is not a lot out there, but there is gas at several of the little towns along the route. As we progressed further west the terrain went from lush farm land to semi arid cattle land. It was an interesting drive, albeit lonely.

We popped out into New Mexico late this afternoon. We are at the KOA in Raton tonight. We're thinking of heading up to Colorado Springs in the morning and laying over there so we can get Lucy's water heater going again.

Here are some shots of the scenery and a New Mexico rest area with two corrals to let your horses out to stretch their legs and get a snack.

I had this problem the second time we used our Airstream when it was new. Apparently the contacts on the igniter had corroded during the few months it was sitting on the lot.

I keep a can of contact cleaner (available at Radio Shack) in the Airstream just in case it happens again. However, part of my "Spring Cleaning" for the Airstream is to clean the contacts on the water heater and on the seven pin connection on the umbilical cord. Haven't had a problem since.

We headed north on I-25 into Colorado. Last night was spent in Colorado Springs. This morning we headed up into the Denver area where we were finally able to get Lucy's water heater repaired.

We continued north on I-25, arriving in Cheyenne, Wyoming, late this afternoon. We got a site for Lucy at the KOA, and headed over to Sierra Trading Company Outlet for some shopping. We toured downtown Cheyenne and took a few pictures of the Capitol. It is really interesting that Wyoming gave women the right to vote in 1869, a full 50 years before it became the law of the country

Tomorrow we will be heading north into Moose country.

What was the cause of the water heater failure to operate?
