Hope you continue having a good trip Robert. I didn't realize you had the 2WD, our new 2.7 Eco is a 4x4 so think I am going to have to drop my B&W Patriot to lowest setting. Due to helping our daughter pack her house into storage at Fort Leavenworth for ten days I still haven't got the mounting rails in the bed yet so no pulling trailer for a while. Fortunately have no camping plans until August. Wish we were off to Osoyoos but that might happen next year.

San Antonio to Canada - Part Deaux

In a podunk RV park at Lake De Smet in northern Wyoming tonight. Not much of a view from the campsite (unless we look behind us) but they have a bar and a restaurant so we're enjoying that. More strong headwinds all the way through Wyoming today, which knocked our gas mileage down to 10 or 11.

Yep, Escape sent us a little gift Robert. Enjoy your new trailer!

The chamber of commerce boys and girls often get in a little bit of a hurry on their state slogan. It's really, Big , wide wonderful, WINDY , Wyoming.
Read up on Father DeSmet, he was quite a camper in his own right.

A state without trees isn't fit for a dog.

Tons of trees here though - especially in the mountains.

You would, except it's a bit chilly and the sun is most welcome!

That's the spirit. Spent the past two days in the Humbolt Redwoods. They are pretty impressive. I've been there before and they must have grown some but it's hard to tell. I had to pack a lunch to walk around a few of them
