Escapades 2011

Yesterday, we were up early so we could wiggle our way out of and around Denver.  Once we were on I-25 heading north things begin to settle down and soon we


were just about the only ones on the road.

We reached the


Wyoming State line and the


scenery changed from the rugged Rockies to this.  And, those cool mountain temps were left behind as well.

By the time we reached the


North Platte River and the turn off to Gillette, the thermometer was reading 95 degrees.

By mid-afternoon, we reached the


High Plains Campground.  This is our


home until we move to the Cam-Plex on Thursday.

Once we were settled, we had a great visit with old friends...there was Keith and Donna, Joe and Marsha, and Rich and MaryAnn.

Later in the evening, we had a  yummy dinner and great visit with Molly and Bob.  When we returned to the campground, we caught up with Roger and Barb and Bob and Barb.  Lots of good hugs and visiting to finish off the day.

This morning Donna and Keith moved over to the


Cam-Plex with the early staff arrivals. 

Today, we met with the rest of our Customer Service team...


Dave and Ann and


Harold and Ruthann.

Always great meeting new folks and we are looking forward to working with them throughout the week.  After a little discussion about ourselves, we were down to working out the plans for the next few days.  Of, course, the planning continued over dinner at the local Mexican food restaurant.  Ann, Ruthann, and I decided we needed to make a stop at Wal-Mart on the way back to the campground.  Then, we all called it a night and headed to our rigs to get things organized for our move in the morning.

We are looking forward to getting set up and organized for what promises to be a fun week at the 2011 Escapades.  We have a beautiful


facility to enjoy where a lot of activity will take place.

  If you are on your way to Gillette, just look for the


welcome sign at the end of the road.  And, if not...know that you will be missed!
