    Default Wow !

    What an amazing adventure, thanks so much for dropping by and sharing your trip with us ! Having travelled through much of the same area in a 29ft class 'C' RV, [including driving over the Trail Ridge road and along the rim and through the tunnels at Colorado NM] it has brought back some great memories and I too, was journeying with you through your report ! Pleased you found Clear creek in Golden, it looked lovely but was booked out when we were there.

    Thanks again !

    Default Thanks, guys. I'll put up pix.

    Wow, I'm amazed someone actually read all that :) Yes, i will try to get some pictures up, if i can whittle it down to a reasonable number. We actually took thousands! And Dave, you are the one to be thanked! I took quite a few pages from your book and used them on this trip. Your "as you went" descriptions of your Four Corners trip were SO helpful in us deciding where to go and possible routes to get there. While ours varied from your route, the descriptions of many of the sights were helpful in figuring out a route we wanted and stops that were "must see". This site is just so helpful!!

    Oh, and by the way, you'll all find this humorous.... 2 weeks after we got back from this trip, we traded in the RV on a bigger/better one. After talking to folks on the road, driving it on the mountains, and living in it for nearly a month, we decided we really did not buy the correct RV for us. I wished i had gotten a diesel and one just a little bigger. We traded it in on a 39 ft Fleetwood Discovery (also used). After crunching the numbers and finding this one online, I knew i was going to lose money on the trade in, but found that if I kept it 2-3 years, I'd lose the same amount. (All that dang Tax down the drain - and then some....) So I went for it! If i'm going to have the use of the one i really want for the next 2 years, it was worth it. I just wish i had bought the right one in the first place. But after having been through this experience, i know it had to happen just the way it did. Had i gone in and the sales man had told me i needed a 39 ft diesel, i'd have laughed. But now i have it and i LOVE it. We took it to Lake Cumberland for 5 days just a week after we got it, towing our boat and it did great. After driving the 32 foot all that way, making the jump to this one was not really a big deal. Yes, seriously hooked.......

    I'm so pleased my report was of use, as yours will be to many other members. Many members old and new will read your report and take the same pleasure and tips from it as we have. Your thread has already had over 1000 views and it will have many more!

    Yes, seriously hooked.......
    You have well and truly caught the bug, great news !! LOL. Would love to see a picture of your new rig. Oh boy, I got it bad now, and can't wait to get over the water and hit the road in an RV again !

    I hope you keep dropping by to share your adventures and knowledge with us, and of course with any trip planning questions you might have.

    Dave.

    Not only did I hang on every word of your trip report I enjoyed all your pictures! What a great trip!

    We also loved the big wind turbines. We saw several of the big blades being transported when we drove back east a couple of years ago. They are enormous!

    I knew where I was in each of your pictures. Everything lookled like I remember except the 4 Corners Monument. It's nothing like it was 25+ years ago! They had the little square with each of the states seals in it, but there was some rinky dink wood platform you could stand on to take a picture and little wooden sheds for the vendors. Looks like they are using the money from the entrance fees to fix it up!

    Default RVs are FUN!

    It was a wonderful report, and we're looking forward to hearing about any upcoming trips you may take. We are "tween RV's" right now, and you made me long for our next one! (We just brought home a "new" tow vehicle - - looking for another 5W, probably.)

    UT, we also saw those turbine blades being transported this summer. AAMOF, we felt like we should have taken photos of all the "weird" things we saw transported this summer. I could have had a whole album of photos!

    It was only around this time last year that the re-construction was completed. What you decribe is how I remember it only 2 years ago.

    Default Four Corners - Old vs New

    Yeah, there was definitely a discrepancy between the very new central part and the older outer ring with the wooden stands as you describe. It is pretty nice, with flags all around and odd that this is literally in the middle of absolute nowhere! I'll look thru my pix and see if I can pull out a few of the overall scene.

    Default Pictures in opposite order.... why?

    Oh yeah, and how do you get your pictures to go up in the right order??? They are exactly backwards of chronological. ..
