I think I must have not passed grammar school spelling, but that's in the past. I saw my son on "find friends" as he went past Lake Norman. I rekon that it was too early in the morning for this particular brain, maybe. He just went past one of our stopping places near Walterboro. Time for a nap.

Day 38....

Jim, I understood the first time. Again, sorry we never connected on your north/south trek by Lake Norman. Someday.

We departed Bardstown at 0730 on Wednesday. Still planning on route 60 and changed our minds and decided to head north. Drove past Paducah, around St Louis to KC, into Iowa and ended up in Nebraska City NE....768 miles. Stayed at a Walmart, nice and quiet. Took Nebraska Rt 2 through Lincoln, then I-80, back on Route 2 through some beautiful countryside. Had a stop at the Nebraska Forest for lunch, BTW, that is a hand planted forest...very interesting. We had been noticing train after train, I mean very long trains loaded with soft coal from the Powder River Basin heading east. Got to Aliance and saw a very large BNSF rail yard. Decided to take a short side trip to Carhenge....pretty neat....good ole USA version of Stonehenge....but with Cadillacs, Desotas, etc. we continued on to Bayard NE, just south of Scottsbluff. We camped at a small rv park with Chimey Rock less than a mile away. Pic here, more to follow.

.....and another. A fun stop.

We spent most of the day in Scottsbluff and Gering. Scottsbluff National Monument is well worth the visit as is Chimney Rock National Historic Site.

We stayed at Chimney Rock Rv Park. Small and very nice. Good ATT cell coverage, no wifi, good air channels. Would recommend.

Tomorrow we head to Cheyenne for several days.

Sorry Gary, we didn't make that one.

Forgot to mention.....at the Chimney Rock campground ground, there is a railroad track about 1/2 mi away.....and an intersection so they blow their whistle, several times at night. Did not bother anyone camped here....just so you know. Also, at night they have flood lights on Chimney Rock....looks great.

Looking for some advice on an upcoming portion of our journey....after five or so days at Cheyenne, we are headed into Colorado. We'll drop down on US 287 from Laramie into the eastern side of Rocky Mointain National Park. Colorado is a truly unknown state to me. Only been to Colorado Springs and Denver. Hope to spend 4 or 5 weeks exploring. Kind of like drinking from a firehouse, I know, but suggestions on camping/boondocking especially appreciated.

There are a lot of small, no hookup, national forest campgrounds in the Rocky Mountains, and we spent a month or so poking around them several years ago.

Temps were cool, and I distinctly recall some being next to rushing mountain rivers, which were beautiful and a source of non-potable water.

There was lots of free firewood, too.

Couldn't tell you which campgrounds, as we didn't keep any records, but at 25' you can probably go anywhere you like, so I would get out and explore.

Have a great time.


Maggie

Ahhh...that would make those NF sites a bit more difficult, but there may be some that are accessible to you.

They are so peaceful and quiet.

Wall Drug...been there, done that in 2014. Huge place. Got some special elixir there from a fellow traveller.

But.....Colorado is the place we want to be. So far nothing in the Rocky Mountain NP for the next three weeks. So we will head to the NFS areas and boondock. Great chance to try out those lift kits....you did tighten everything, right Gary?

It has a driveway warranty. You leave the driveway, warranty expires. Besides the mothership had last hands on it.

Sitting on a muggy back porch, dinner done. Time to start melting some ice.

SilverEagle6: If you get to the Glenwood Springs/Carbondale/Aspen area, stay at the Redstone State Park Campground, Redstone, CO. Some sites are Electric/Water. You're tucked in the red rock and aspens.
