Moving On...

After a great evening with Jim and Ellie, plus getting a good night's sleep, we were up this morning and ready to move on.  However, before we could leave, Mark and Jim needed to make a trip to Camping World.  Never turn two guys loose in Camping World...

When they returned, it was time for us to pack up and truly say, "see you guys tomorrow"...more about that later!

Our travel today would only take us about 30 miles


up hills and


around rocks to the town


Woodland Park.  Once we made our way through town and a turn on Hwy 67, we found ourselves arriving at Diamond Campground and RV Park.  This is the park were Jack and Danielle Mayer work for the summer season.  They are also one of our neighbors from Retama.

We were excited to see them, and I laughed and told them they didn't have to go overboard with the


welcome!   LOL

Once we were settled into our beautiful site, it was time to take care of a few necessities...such as


lunch (Mark's choice),


washing the Jeep, and


restocking the pantry and fridge!

Then, it was back to the RV Park where we spent a nice quite afternoon.  Mark found the lawn chair very comfy, while Danielle and I took a nice walk around the park.  By the time we made it back, Jack had wandered over and found the other lawn chair, and he and Mark were in deep conversation.  Danielle and I joined them until time to call it a night.

Tomorrow, Jim and Ellie are coming to Woodland Park and the four of us are taking off for the back roads and who knows where they might lead.


  1. Looks like a great place and how fun that Jim & Ellie are coming there too!!!
    Have fun & Travel safe

  2. What a wonderful time with friends. I can't wait to see where you end up. I'll be following the journey.
