Move closer to Colorado Springs

Today was moving day.

We wanted to move closer to Colorado Springs where we would have better cell phone and internet access.  We had gone long enough without these conveniences at hand.  It would be good to be back in the 21st century.

Yesterday we mostly stayed close to the coach getting ready to leave.  After being parked in one place for three weeks, there were a bunch of things to do before moving the rig.  By late afternoon, most everything was ready.  As a remembrance of the campground, I took some pictures of the local flora, which I encourage readers to view.  This really was a nice spot, but it was too remote for our purposes.  However, we will miss the peace and quiet.

This morning, we said goodbye to our neighbors and did some last minute preparation.  We fired up the coach around 10:30 AM and set out on the 30 minute drive to the Garden of the Gods Campground in Colorado Springs.  The journey was uneventful and we were parked and set up by 1:00 PM.

This park is very different from the one we just left.  In fact, it is more of a resort.  The rigs are parked closer together, there are two pools, hot tubs, activities, etc.  It should be o.k. for the month we plan to stay.

The weather here is surprising, with the past week being a series of rain storms.  One night it rained so hard we thought we were back in South Florida. The storm lasted for hours complete with thunder and lightening.  Thunderstorms are not uncommon in the late afternoons.  However, after the rainfall, dry air returns and the ground quickly dries out.  I suppose without the dry air, this place would be densely wooded like parts of Arkansas.

Well, that’s the report for today.
