I Made it to Denver!

Apparently I don’t have to actually walk up 78 flights of stairs to get credit on my Fitbit. I only have to drive to Denver!

Yeah, surprised the heck out of me, too.

But I made it and the drive really wasn’t all that bad. Once we hit Kansas (which I realized I had never been through before), we drove between 80-90 mph (zoom-zoom— speed limit is 75). Traffic was light and there really is a bunch of nothing in that big state. One straight road and no trees! Same for Colorado. It wasn’t until we hit the Denver Airport area when traffic picked up.

Even though we’re at a mile high, I’m still waiting to see the mountains. Can’t tell if the clouds were covering them or if they can even be seen from here. Maybe I’ll see them today. That’s if I even go outside.

I gotta con to go to!

Now, I brought my camera, but we’ll see if I use it. Hahahaha!

So… We noticed that there were numerous places on I-70 in Kansas and Colorado that said if the lights were flashing, you were forced to get off the road. I can only imagine that’s during a snow storm (what else could it be?). With no trees, there’s nothing to stop the snow from blowing across the road. And man, it was windy yesterday. I could picture the snow falling sideways. Glad temps were in the 70s! No threat of snow.

Happy Friday!

Glad you made it safely, have a great time!

My wife and I drove through New Brunswick, Canada many years ago, and much of the drive being through this great flatland, with a lot of wind. There were a few "hang on to the wheel and fight to keep the car straight" moments on that drive!

Jeff - If we had been driving the Xterra, I might have experienced a little of that. Luckily, we had the Solara. It's much lower to the ground!
