    2010 Inaugeral Trip... 100% Success!!

    Finally got the BH out of the driveway for a weekend - Colorado has had snow at least one day on the weekends for a month now. Actually snowed this weekend too, but we snuck out in front of the front!

    A simple little trip to Lake Pueblo, provided everything but a water hookup, but that's OK, because I won't de-winterize for another month yet. It's a lot easier to use a water jug for a couple days, than to clean out the pipes and re-winterize, even with the simple valve system Heartland provides.

    Anyway, ignoring the freshwater system... everything was a 100% GO, and worked perfectly. A couple of space heaters ran at 50% power, and kept us just comfy, despite the cold weather (low 20's) and gusty winds (upper 20's).

    Thanks Heartland, for providing us one very fine product!

    We sure thought about you this weekend. We went to Rich and Sons Open House, had pancakes and registered for the VuCube. We didn't win but had a good time visiting. We walked in and they said, There's Chet and Colleen. Makes you feel good when they remember your name. They sold three Landmarks last week. Didn't have any Landmarks left on the lot. Hey, glad you guys got to go camping. Looking forward to seeing you in May. -- Chet and Colleen

    We also slipped out not from the snow but the rain. Camped with a group from Knoxville tn. Had 1 day of great weather and 2 days of rain but who cares. I been wet before. Nabo was there along with 2 other Sundances. Had 26 rigs. Ready to go again.

    Hah! Like I asid Randy - after three weekends and three misfires, I was really chompin at the bit.

    Dang Chet - I was just sure you would come home with that VuCube. I gave thought to the venture up there, but it just wasn't timed right with the storm.... We really enjoyed that little park just a couple blocks away from Rich's.

    Our next venture is mid April to do some stargazin... then Mother's Day rendevous at KOA, you get a free night that weekend. Followed by the Rocky Mountain Spring Rally in Gunnison! Looking forward to that one!! See you guys there!

    Can't wait to show off the new little mascot, Jasper. This was his first time out and he enjoys RVing too!

    Al, Is that at every KOA or just one in particular? -- Colleen

    Colleen - It is "most" KOA's, but not all, I believe. We will be staying at the KOA in Colorado City. It's one of the top KOA's in Colorado, AFAIK, very nice. They will have LOTS of activities!

    Goto koa.com, and see what's available. It's pretty popular, so it may be hard to find reservations - don't know. You are welcome to join us if they got room!

    I was at Rich and Sons this weekend for the open house and pancake feed. Didn't win the VuCube either. I was the one picking up our new Bighorn. Hopefully we are going to be able to take it to Sherman Lake tomorrow and get it set up. We leave it there all summer, if you've never been there it is quite nice in the summer.
