Extended stay in the Denver area

On June 6 we departed South Dakota for Colorado via Wyoming. Our route took us to Wheatland, Wyoming where we stop from a day of traveling. Wheatland is a small town on Interstate 25, north of Cheyenne with a small city park (Lewis Park) where they allow you to park your RV for up to 3 days. Better yet, 6 of the sites have electrical and water for your rig FREE of charge! An added benefit was the public swimming pool was located in the same park, so Karen was able to get in some lap swimming the next morning before we left for Denver.

Our first two days in the Denver area were at the Calvary Community Baptist Church in Northglenn about 4.6 miles from our son's Erik's home in Thornton. Pastor Robb of the church was welcoming and OK'd an addition day for us in their parking lot.

Erik, Tori and the grandkids were just returning from a trip to Disneyland, so we waited until Wednesday, June 8 to see the gang. From there we were moving to the west to Standley Lake Regional Park in Bloomfield, CO., but before the move on June 9th, I took Karen to the Denver International Airport. She was on her way to New York to go on a all-girls cruise to Bermuda. After dropping her off at the departure terminal I headed back to the church to pick up the rig and move. I was at Standley Lake for five days, and have moved three more times since arriving. Two Days at Chatfield State Park, one day at Cherry Creek State Park and most recently Valley View Christian Church (Harvest Host). All of the facilities have been first-class, I just wish I'd scheduled them for longer periods of time. Moving the rig by myself and so often is getting old. I have I more move to make tomorrow, Father's Day to Buckley Space Force Base. Fortunately, that reservation is for five days and Karen returns on Tuesday, June 21 from her trip. Looking forward to getting my partner back.
