Big family group, 12 of us. 7 adults and 5 kids.

from chicago in the morning. We overnighted in a Best Western close
to the airport.
Day 2 Early next morning back to the airport and picked up the
missing case. A fleet of Taxis then took us to Moturis RV hire on the
Boulder Highway to pick up two Class C 31 foot RV's

City stopping off at Leeds for some photographs along the way. On

hooked up we walked to the main building and had our evening meal.
Walking back to the RVs in the woods in the dark, the sky was
impossibly bright and ablaze with more stars than I believe I have
