Thursday May 31, 2018-Moving Day-Gunsmoke RV Park to Pueblo South KOA, Pueblo Colorado

We were up early and getting ready to leave here. This is a nice little park that was perfect for our overnight stay, but we stayed here three years ago with Dave & Nancy and Tom & Marti for a few days to explore the area and it worked well for us.

We actually pulled out about 8:30 and had another uneventful day of driving in western Kansas and eastern Colorado. We went through Lamar Colorado, where we stopped with Dave & Nancy after his truck broke down.It actually blew off a turbo hose that he found at the Ford dealership there. Dave bought the part and installed it and we were back on the road the next day. Lucky...

I've gotta tell you that I don't usually complain about highways but I am on this occasion. We traveled about 25 miles on I-25 and I can't think of another time that a major interstate highway was in such bad shape! The Colorado Department of Transportation should be ashamed! We found cabinets thrown open and the contents scattered on the floor and food thrown out of their cabinets. Be very careful traveling I-25 south bound at Pueblo.

We rolled into the KOA about 3 o'clock and were soon set up in our site. I had to ask for another site because they had put us into a heavily wooded site and I couldn't get out on the rooftop antenna. Gotta have TV!

Tomorrow is our last travel, thank goodness! I am tired and wanting to be somewhere that I can rest and relax. so don't expect to hear much from me for a few days. At least today will be a short 160 mile day but it's in the mountains, so that will slow us down. Can't wait to arrive!

So long.
