Day 13 Colorado Flooding….

How do you go from day 9 to day 13? Easy, you move like greased lightening and assess like there is no tomorrow. We did! We were sent by Incident Command to check out 38 homes in Aurora Colorado. We did not want to waste time driving back and forth from Longmont to Aurora and back again. So, we loaded up all our gear and hooked up the little camper that could and headed for Cherry Creek State Park. It was okay, but pricey, I can’t recommend it. A $9.00 daily pass has to be bought, a camp per night fee of $24.00 per night and you get to pay $1.25 for a seven minute luke warm shower. All those fees and the state cannot afford to provide soap for washing your hands. After 2 days I called our friends Bruce and Char, and begged to mooch off them and camped at their place for our last night in Aurora. Upon rising, I discovered a tire that was on it’s last steel belt, so we limped to Sam’s and purchased a new one for our trip back to Longmont. We gave our report, and started to pack up our camper when our I.C. boss brought us three, last homes to look at. Two in Longmont and one at Lyons

We celebrate our last day in Lyons...

and we reported back, got our kit in order and will hit the road to continue our aimless ambling around the country…
