Jello Plans...

This morning we took our time in getting up and out of Amarillo.  Our jello plan was to travel only to Raton, NM.  But, as we traveled in that direction, we realized that with the time change, we would arrive shortly after noon and that was sort of a waste of good travel time.  So, after little discussion, we decided on the perfect plan.

I made a call to the Colorado Springs KOA and found that they had availability for tonight. Then I sent a text message to Jim and Ellie, knowing that they were staying there, and ask if they would recommend the KOA as a place to stay.  They were excited to find out that we were coming, even it was just for overnight.

We arrived around 3:00pm and were parked just a couple of sites away.  Of course, we quickly set up and were off to get the visiting started. And, the talking, laughing, and visiting lasted the rest of the afternoon, on through dinner, a drive around town, and into the evening.

It has been way too long since we have been together and we enjoyed the day so much.  And, even though we will leave tomorrow to go on to Woodland Park, which is about 30 miles up the road, we have made plans to get together and share in a few adventures over the next couple of days.

So, once again, those plans that were only jello this morning, ended up setting up quite well.
