Harry and Judy's RV Trip
No Photos 21st Jun 2011 - Summer 2011
Day 66-Canon City, CO

Cool again last night but beautiful and sunny today, cooler here, got up to 85.
A part on the hitch broke, the pin lock, and instead of finding a welder Harry called the manufacturer and they’re sending a new part, free of charge, to be delivered to the campground Thurs. by 11PM, so we’ll be here for a few days.
Stayed around the campground in the morning, Sharon stopped in again for about an hour and made an appointment for me with her chiropractor for tomorrow, I’m having trouble with my leg. We then went downtown to the Chamber of Commerce and found some good info about Canon City. After that we went to Holy Cross Winery about a mile down the road and did a tasting. They had a great wine made from 30 local grapes that tasted like concord grape juice with a kick. From there we did some grocery shopping for tonight (Sharon and a friend are coming to dinner) and then drove through Old Historic Canon City, we’ll probably do more of that later in the week. Lots of shops and restaurants.
Back to the campground we looked at maps and got a general idea of where we’re going next, looks like Dodge City, Kansas and then Tulsa, OK, but we won’t know for sure ‘til we get there. I just like to check mileage between places to make sure it’s doable and see if there’s anything we want to see while we’re there. Also like to make sure there’s campgrounds around places we’re planning on stopping. Nothing looks interesting in either Dodge City (maybe Boot Hill) or Tulsa but nothing looked interesting in Idaho either and we had a great time there.
Dinner was great, we had planned on eating outside but the wind kicked up in the late afternoon and although it was gorgeous out it was too windy to eat out. We all had a good time and laughed quite a bit. Beautiful night out, cooler, we’ll probably need the heat again tonight.
