I'm starting to go over maps to decide if I'm going to head to Colorado Springs to visit my granddaughter; or, if it might be better to head south into New Mexico and then start my easterly adventure. I'm very paranoid about getting caught in bad weather.
I'm going to leave Willard Bay SP tomorrow morning and I have an appointment at Camping World in Kayesville (between Brigham and Salt Lake City) on I-15. Depending on what we find there I may have to plan a couple of days getting things done to Floribunda (I hope that's not the case!); then I do want to spend a few days in Salt Lake City.
I called KOA on Temple in SLC; they have lots of spaces available but it's pretty pricey - like $43/day. If anybody has RV park suggestions in SLC, please let me know. I only have one person to possibly visit, but it's been a long time since I did any touristy things there so I'd like to get reacquainted. Suggestions?
My other conundrum is, if I do decide to head to Colorado Springs, which route is best in terms of road conditions, weather, etc. I think I'd be leaving SLC somewhere in the neighborhood of 10/7 or 10/8. I'd also appreciate any suggestions for camping sites between SLC and Colorado Springs. I usually don't like to travel more than about 150-200 miles a day so I'm probably looking at three nights on the road.
I'd also like any suggestions for Colorado Springs camping. I have to find out what part of the city my granddaughter lives; if I go there I'd want to stay for at least 4-5 days. From there I'd head to New Mexico I guess on I-25; then pick up I-40 in Albuquerque for heading east.
On another note, Petunia was badly in need of a bath so this afternoon, a rather overcast day, seemed like as good a time as any; she's pretty easy to wash at 8 feet long! So I washed away and vacuumed the interior. She was beautiful. Just as I got the car cover I'd purchased several weeks ago, it started raining. Oh well, at least there won't be muddy streaks all over; there'll be clean rain spots!
As I was battening down the hatches this evening I saw this rainbow from my door - but it continues to rain.
