Friday fun

Spent Friday afternoon with a good friend.  We drove up to Camping World Longmont to pick up the truck with its new Curt Q20 5th wheel hitch. They did a wonderful job.

While waiting for the paperwork to be processed we went a few miles up the road to Johnsons Corner for lunch. They are a truck stop RV stop just south of Loveland. The food was to die for. Given my heart condition I probably shoiuld not have had the chicken fried steak and eggs.  Today is Monday and I still feel full.

In order to exercies a bit we drove down the road to the LazyDays RV sales yard and drooled over the latest and greatest RV's and 5th wheels.

Down the road again we spotted this place. An RV park, RV Retreat, where we can pull in short or long term with full hookups, sewer and close enough to a bus line so I can still get downtown for the time being. I took several pics  around there so when I showed them to the wife that evening she decided she wanted to go up there, So Saturday afternoon we got the kids and took a drive.  The RV park met her approval and we will be making reservations for the month of July. 600 a month with all hookups.  Not a bad price and still close enough to Denver so I can get to work.

On the way home we spotted Vrain Lake Park and decided that this weekend we will take a drive there to scope it out as a potential weekend spot to test out the RV and work the quirks out of it and the truck . Easy pull thru spots and gorgeous scenery.  30 a night with hookups.  Great deal to break Clara in to the phamily.

Other than those events it was a quiet weekend.
