Day 119: Hanging Rock, NC

I'm back in NC now! Huzzah! Lacey and I went out to the western part of the state and hiked up to Hanging Rock. It was a pretty cool hike, with a nice view. If you go, be sure not to stop where everyone else does - there are a…

Day 115: Trying to get home

I'm returning to NC for a couple weeks to visit folks, and be with my girlfriend Lacey on her birthday. This evening I drove down to Denver with my RV to leave it at my aunt and uncle's house while I'm gone. That was quite the ordeal - we misjudged…

Day 111: Exploring Colorado

The start of today's journey takes me to the Swetsville Zoo, a cool junk art exhibit I used to visit on school trips. Go, rocket turtle, go! Colorado has these things I call "cotton trees". They grow what look like cotton balls, and here you can see the…

Day 110: See ALL THE Wyomings!

So it turns out that the last time I headed up to Wyoming, I totally missed just about everything there is to do in Wyoming, for which my mother chastised me upon my return. Today I rectified this grievous error by returning to Wyoming to do a proper job of…

Day 106: Scooting through the park

Ft. Collins ranks pretty highly nationally for its footpaths and pedestrian/cyclist-friendliness. This evening I took advantage of that by scooting through a park and along the Poudre River for a couple miles. It was very scenic, and a nice ride. This fat groundhog let me get right up to…

Day 104: Where I am

So this is what it looks like when you stay at a used furniture store that has space left over, so it doubles as a trailer park, and still has space left over, so it triples as a small RV park.  Regardless of how weird it is, it's a pretty…

Day 102: Wandering and having good food

Tonight seemed like a night for good Italian food, so I sought some out! Surprisingly, none of the Italian places this side of Denver have plain ol' ravioli alfredo or fettuccini alfredo on their menues. I settled on going to Bisetti's, and just asked for ravioli alfredo when I got…

Day 99: Dinner

It's surprisingly hard to find well-reviewed Mexican places in Fort Collins. I wound up settling on Los Rarascos I asked for a side of queso and was surprised when I got home to find that it wasn't queso dip, but just a cup of shredded cheese! Well then. The rest…

Day 98: Amazing laundromat is amazing

I'm certainly seeing plenty of laundromats it my travels. This one is particularly weird because it's fancy. It's immaculate, it's nicely decorated, they have a card-based payment system instead of piles of quarters, they have a ton of varieties of washers/dryers so you can pay a small amount for…
