And so it begins

So last year I took a trip to CO with my great friend Julie…as I stood next to Twin Lakes before crossing Independence Pass I was on the phone with Brad.  I remember vividly telling him…it is so beautiful here, I need to bring you and the girls back next year!  Amazingly enough, we are getting ready to do just that, along with a few other stops…and I couldn’t be more excited!

This site is for updates along the way.  Just what I need, another website to keep up with, right?!  Believe it or not, this is the easiest way for me to share our adventures with anyone interested!  I have included a page on this blog with a pictoral representation of our airstream renovation as well, although many of you have already seen many of the photos.

So Brad left for Colorado on Wednesday before lunch and crossed the state line this morning…his traveling has gone well and I have enjoyed his descriptions of the route.  He chose the most direct version, and understandably!  It is a haul.  He should be arriving at our friend’s house near Longmont around lunchtime.  He has utilized truck stops along the way for parking at night, found a gym in St Louis to get some exercise, and has enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen/refrigerator I sent him off with!

The girls and I are headed to Denver via Southwest airlines Sunday morning and I can tell you it can’t get here soon enough!  I know I have “straightened up” a thousand times…but with two girls running around this place it has been a complete waste of time.  The final walk through will be all that I actually achieve!  Most of our stuff left with the camper on Wednesday, so we are just bringing backpacks and Kimberly’s blends on the plane.

If all goes well, we will be in Rocky Mtn Nat’l Park tomorrow night…we’ll keep you posted!
