The Hills are Alive!

Sometimes when you retrace your steps and return to places you've been before, you have your eyes on doing things you meant to do the first time around but didn't. For us, in returning to Central City for a quick stop. We liked the view from the KOA there (spots 1-10 only, if you're looking) so decided to spend half our long weekend there. There was a path where we saw bikers and hikers the year before so decided to check it out.

Fire on the Mountain

There is no better time to do a review of a firepit right after a fire ban, no? You may have seen our area on the news (our families certainly did with people coming out of the woodwork ensuring we were safe...we are!) that there have been some forest fires and evacuations as a result of some careless people. So do as we say, not as we do. Start a fire. And do it without much muss or fuss. What: Flame Genie Wood Pellet Fire Pit Where to Buy: Amazon or direct from manufacturer Price: Around $100 If you're like us,…

Gov’t Surprises

You sometimes don't know what to expect until you actually are doing it. Sure, you can plan and prepare but even then, you come across unexpected good surprises and unexpected bad ones. We will be reviewing what those are, based on subject. The first round is about government-run campgrounds. The Good 1. COE Campgrounds. You may be wondering "what does COE mean?" We'll tell you. "COE" stands for "Corps of Engineers". They are usually located near water and you won't generally find camphosts greeting you and showing you to the non-existent pool, but what bang you get for your buck! These are…

Mess of Mama’s BBQ

The Breckenridge area isn't just about mountains! We were lucky to attend the Frisco BBQ Festival which is a haven if you like BBQ, beer, ice cream or all of the above. [caption id="attachment_1026" align="aligncenter" width="960"] Entrance to the festival[/caption] We saw a few vendors staying in our RV park, along with amazingly huge smokers and trailers. We didn't see the train smoker in our park but found it at the festival. [caption id="attachment_1025" align="aligncenter" width="960"] Smoker disguised as train[/caption] First thing's first: you cannot use cash at this event. You need to buy tickets, called "Hogbacks" (why not Hogcash?…

Stray Cat Strut

The question we see most often within RVing with Pets groups is "What do I do with the kitty litter?" When looking at floorpans, we insisted on having a bath and a half so the half bath would be dedicated to the cats. We intended on taking out the toilet in that bath and capping the plumbing. It would be used for a litter box and storage. As the build came closer, we thought "Hmmmm - it would be nice to be able to have both bathrooms". We found more uses for the second bath, particularly so guests wouldn't have to…

Ally Puppy

We haven't updated in a while because we have gone through a loss that we knew was coming but we were still thrown off by it. We did the research, prepared as much as we could, hired hospice during the last health scare, made judgement calls and enjoyed our time together as much as we could. And even with that, life sometimes sticks its middle finger up at you and says "But can you handle THIS?" Knowing what was going on with Ally internally, we opted to drive from Wyoming to Fort Collins CO to ensure we had access to in-home…
