New Spot in Rocky Mountain National Park area

We are currently at the foot of Rocky Mountain National Park and plan to be here for the next seven days.
Our site backs up to the fast flowing Big Thompson River

We drove 300 miles earlier today from our spot in Fruita, Colorado just outside of Grand Junction.  The good news is, the Roadrunner made it over the mountain without any issues.  It was slow at times and I hate all those miles cresting the mountain up and down from Eisenhower Tunnel but we did it and we are here.
The other good news is that it is a bit cloudy here and we have some relief from the 100+degree weather we have been having in Moab, UT and over in Fruita, CO.

I have started and not completed a number of posts from our travels in the last few months. Over the past few weeks we have seen a lot and taken loads of pictures.  We've found that our wifi/internet has been spotty often out in Utah 'off the beaten path'.  That is usually OK, but it just means I have more to catch up on when I have a good signal.

Other times, when we return to the Roadrunner after a day trip somewhere, I have not been as timely as I'd like to post pictures and a write up on what we did - so I am a little behind.  Which is a common blogger predicament?  That's my story on that and I'm sticking with it...

However, I do have a number of blog posts 'in the queque' that I am working on:

  1. Zion National Park Thoughts
  2. Seeing Bryce Canyon National Park
  3. Petroglyphs National Park Outside of Albuquerque
  4. Pickin' and Grinin' - OKC Banjo Museum
  5. Roadrunner Reflections - 6 Years on the Road!
  6. Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell
  7. Gouldings Museum in Monument Valley
  8. Roadrunner iPad Holder Prototype 
  9. Roadrunner Front Dash/Tray Console
In fact I have 134 blog posts in 'draft' that I have yet to finish or have started and not completed.  I may never finish all of them off, but I am thinking I will get to these at least these nine (in no particular order), so stay tuned!

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!


  1. No rush, we know what it is like to be doing things every day and then wanting to write a blog post about it!

    We have been in Colorado in the Little Blue Car but not the motorhome but we would love to explore this area more. We love driving the mountians, it doesn't bother Kevin a bit and the scenery is always spectacular.

    Hope you take time to relax and enjoy the scenery all around you.

  2. I share your sentiments about getting backed up on writing blogs. Same situation here. I'm about 2 weeks behind and we move again tomorrow.
    Hang in there.

  3. we will enjoy reading them whenever you get around to posting them!
