Hey Mikey; I wonder if that 310 owner knows he hit a silver Smart-for-two?

Cheers
Tony

Those pictures make me miss Colorado. My house is in the background. Well, the mountains in the back yard anyway. Been cold, gray, and depressing here in Michigan. Driving out there in a couple days to move some furniture and close on the sale of the house.

HEYYYYYYY, THATS US!!!!! Whatdya know..
Well, gandbaby duties are over for now and was time to move on. BIG SNOW STORM forecasted for later today so we bugged out of Cherry Creek at 6:30am and headed north to Lyons Colorado. A very cool and sleepy little town on one of the main routes up to Estes Park. They have a very small, city run campground that we've been wanting to get to and they had some space for us. Tucked in among some pretty high rock cliffs. Stunningly beautiful. Supposed to get about a foot of snow today and tomorrow so we are tucked in here and will wait it out. Supposed to be back in the fifties in a few days.

We were thinking about you Dave as we drove through Boulder on the way up here.

Lots of time on the web Bob. A lot of times Ill get off the typical Camping Apps and search individual towns that look interesting. Its amazing how many of these small towns have campgrounds with 10-15 spaces. Again full hookups here in Lyons. Many of these spots arent listed on Allstays or Good Sam. Helps to get off the interstate also and watch for the small camping signs passing through the small towns. This park will be a zoo come summer Im sure. They hold one of the best bluegrass festivals in the country here.

Beautiful baby Mike! You must be a proud Papa.

How's your rig handling the white stuff? How does she handle when the fronts lock up; or do they?

Cheers
Tony

Thank you Tony, I think the family has decided to keep the little booger!

Yesterday we left Cherry Creek early enough that we beat the storm blowing in. It was just starting to come down heavy when we arrived in Lyons so didnt drive on any snow pack. Its been snowing hard ever since though, we must have a foot or so and still snowing! Its beautiful....as long as we are tucked in here. The little park here is on the edge of the town on the St Vrain river. We will venture out if it warms up a little today and get some pics. Here's what its looking like outside our door this morning.

We have full hookups Bob. I wouldn't attempt to boondock in these conditions. Though I have exersized it several times while on the road here. She's running better than ever since I completed the tune up and got those pesky points changed out and adjusted.

I noticed in a previous post that you are a fan of TCM as we are as well...just wondering if you use satellite like us through DirectV or you have some other means of getting it. Regards, Bob

Huge TCM fans Bob. Anything released from 1930 to 1960. We just hope for an internet connection on the road and occasionally chew up mega data streaming. Another advantage of traveling this time of year is that the parks that do offer internet, aren't overloaded with users. We haven't solved this yet. Going to have to do something though. We should check out your system at the get together..Ive never had satellite before.

No kidding! It was ccccccold out this morning. Still not like central Illinois cold though, I think it's the lack of humidity out here and the solar heating during the day. The sun is SOOOO powerful here. It can be 20 degrees and sunny and I'm in a light jacket.

I miss that. 6000 feet closer to the sun helps too. 20 degrees, humid, overcast, 10kts of wind back here is the coldest I've been in the 30 years since I left Michigan.

Mike -14F is pretty cold in an Airstream. I was working in Siberia a few years ago and it typically was -16 to -20 F. It hurt to breath. One two day period it dipped down to -41 F. Even the Russians had to admit it was in their words 'Uncommonly Cold'. What kind of temperature were you able to maintain in your coach.
