A site by the creek at Bridge Campground!

Friday, June 10

The Best Little Trailer finds a home next to a creek in Colorado!

P1120131-001Williams Creek, Bridge Campground, 19 miles north of Pagosa Springs

Upon entering Bridge Campground, I stop the Perfect Tow Vehicle at the kiosk to read notices on the bulletin board.  Of, course, I’m interested in learning the fee for camping: $20 regular/$10 with the Senior Pass discount.

I survey our surroundings and am delighted by what I see! 

P1120135View of the mountains and the main road as seen from the campground entrance

“Gosh, this doesn’t even look like a campground,” I remark to Bridget and Reggie who are anxious to arrive at their new home.  “All this beautiful space . . . . “

Later I read that Bridge Campground is eight-tenths of a mile long.

It contains nineteen campsites which are first come-first serve.  The length of the campground allows each site to be right next to Williams Creek.

P1120136

The road takes us to the first group of campsites. 

The first site is occupied.  Two women and two men are visible near their fifth-wheel.  They’re laughing loudly as one of the men play-fights with a teenage boy.

Although the next site is quite nice, I pass it up to avoid having neighbors.  Another site on a short spur is occupied.

We continue on the dirt road.

It takes us away from the first group of sites to another area of campsites.  We pass a trash bin, a pit toilet building, and a drinking water spigot.

P1120104

The road curves toward the river again.

The first site is occupied by a van, the kind with a top area the goes up.  Looking ahead, around the curve, I see a very large fifth wheel sits in the last site.  Three sites between them are vacant.  I stop at the middle one.

“I like this one! Okay, crew. Let’s check it out!”

The crew scrambles into the passenger seat. 

I go around and place a wiggly Bridget on the ground.  She’s off to explore.  Quickly I attach the tether to Reggie’s camo suit and lift his squirmy body to the ground and he joins Bridget in an intense, zigzagging sniff-around.

I evaluate the site.

Picnic table, kinda’ beat up but that doesn’t matter . .  . a fire ring . . . a shady place to sit under that tree .  Site is nearly level, no problem there . . .plenty of sun for the solar panel . . .  oh, and the creek, what a pretty creek!

P1120144 The camp host pulls up in a golf cart.

A fair-haired fellow who I learn is from Wisconsin steps out of the cart and offers a friendly greeting.  He gives me information about the area.  I ask about camping further up the road.

The campground at Williams Lake is full and the sites next to water at the other campgrounds are taken by this time on a Friday.

I don’t feel like leaving this place anyway. 

I want us to camp at Bridge Campground.  After all, it’s Bridget’s special place!

We discuss the best way to position the Best Little Trailer.  He suggests I pull forward so that the BLT will receive shade and the PTV will be in the sun.

I pay $20 for Friday and Saturday nights.

After some back-and-forth, I find the spot with that mix of sun and afternoon shade suggested by the camp host.

Great!

P1120119The BLT nestled between trees (photo taken the next morning)

After a late lunch, the crew and I walk around our campground loop, followed by playtime with Reggie and relaxation under our shade tree . . . .

It’s time for the crew’s nap.

Bridget, Reggie, and I head toward the door of the BLT.

“AACCCKKK!  SNAKE!”

I jump back and automatically reel in Reggie on his tether.

A brown, skinny snake about three feet long, maybe a little less than that, makes its way from under the PTV and disappears into the brush on its way to the river.  Bridget and Reggie stand next to me.  They stare at the snake and don’t move.

Whew!  It’s harmless . . . even so, I don’t like being close to these bushes.  In the morning, I’ll move the BLT out into the open . . . .

P1120118

Saturday, June 11

Bridget, Reggie and I set out early on our morning walk.  Long shadows reach across the road.  The fresh, cool morning and blue sky promise another beautiful day.

P1120110

The road gradually rises above the creek. 

I’m enchanted by this scene of morning glow. Fingers of shadow reach across the green; light shimmers on the creek.

P1120113

The jaunty pace of Bridget and Reggie tells me they’re both having a great time this morning.

P1120114-001

We return to our camp and I move the BLT.

Now she’s in a clear spot, away from the bushes (also shown in the first photo of this post).

P1120125

Mid-morning, as I sit at my laptop table in the BLT . . . .

A herd of cows moves across the hillside in a chorus of moos.

P1120143

I rush to the doorway with my camera.

I zoom in and take the photo above.  Then I see . . .

Cowboys!  I love cowboys and their horses!

In the second before I take the photo, the cows move out of the frame.  No matter.  I caught the cowboys!

P1120146

The older of the two cowboys hollers “Cow boss!  Hey!  Cow boss!”

P1120147

In the afternoon the crew and I board the Perfect Tow Vehicle.

We drive up a ridge in search of a boondock.

P1120128

In the next post I’ll show you what we find!

    I’m first

  2. Dasher - Tampa Bay says:

    So happy you are back !!!!

  3. How awesome! Campsites by creeks are the best 🙂 I’m glad your website issues are fixed, I was worried there for a bit!

  4. Karen LeMoine says:

    Such a pretty serene green camp. Happy to be in 4th place!

  5. eliza says:

    I was out weeding the garden and got overheated and needed a breather. Came in to cool off and your post shows up on my email – the perfect refresher! Can just hear that creek and sniff that breeze. Wonderful…

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      That is good timing, eliza. 🙂

      Sometimes I miss my garden. Not the big vegetable garden, the little raised bed I had in the back yard where I planted lettuce and radishes. The big one was a lot of work.

      I wish you a healthy garden and an abundant harvest!

  6. Wow, Sue, Bridget has a nice camp ground named after her.
    Very nice post and photos, such blue skies and the cows and Cowboys. We are camping up the Ephraim Canyon till the 28th, Piper loves it, cool and shady for her. Sometime, if you can, would you email me. Have a great weekend and stay safe up in them Rockies, ,,,,,,, rusty

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Rusty,

      I’m sorry I haven’t emailed you yet. I was going to do that and kept forgetting!

      I’m so happy you and Piper like Ephraim Canyon. Those aspens give nice shade. I hope you can find another great camp for 4th of July weekend.

      Enjoy your camp… You stay safe, too!

  7. Deena in Peoria, AZ says:

    Oh my, the road to a new boondock site is inviting. Spent some of my childhood in CO, have lots of fond memories. Creeks and clean air, oh my.
    Finish packing the last few boxes this weekend. Staying inside, it is 106 on the north side patio @ 10:06 A.M., inching up to 111, tomorrow is going to be 118. Enjoy watching golf and the US Open is playing this weekend.
    Take care and thanks for the lovely pictures of Cowboys.

    Deena and Miss Mollie

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Deena and Miss Mollie,

      Good plan to stay inside this weekend. Those temps are brutal! Sounds like you’re about finished with your packing. .. Congratulations!

      I’m glad you liked the photos of the cowboys…

  8. Gail from Buckeye AZ says:

    I love your new camp ground. But SNAKES scare me and I would have packed up and left the area, LOL! So glad the crew did not approach the snake they are pretty smart fellas! The area is just Beautiful, enjoy your weekend!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi Gail,

      Snakes scare me, too. I don’t like being startled. Moving isn’t the answer. You could move to another snake, when the first one has gone somewhere else. 🙂

      I was pleased that Reggie didn’t immediately go for the snake. I know Bridget would never do that. They both seemed to have an instinctive reaction like I did… Stand back, don’t move, and watch.

      Enjoy your weekend, Gail!

  9. Barb from Hoquiam! says:

    Whew! That was a close one! (the snake). Whew!!!

    Gorgeous spot. Amazing that it was not filled to the brim.
    Jim has taken Moosee the trailer out. I was supposed to go, but both of my knees have been hurting so badly and are so wonky that I was afraid of going… He didn’t go far. I may join up with him–they are feeling some better now that I have taken some time off them. Went to the doc and got xrays… I don’t wanna know. 🙁

    Hope you have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

    Hugs from Hoquaim,
    Barb

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Gee, I hate that your knees are hurting, Barb. And Moosee left without you. Well, you were smart not to push yourself to give your knees a chance to feel better. I hope the pain is gone or goes away pronto!

    • Geri says:

      Yuck to painful knees! I had gawd-awful knees and finally I had to get them replaced about 10 years ago and I have never ever been sorry! It is an easy surgery! One thing my neurosurgeon told me was get TUMERIC and take it 3 or 4 times a day! Look in the drugstore vitamin area. It reduces swelling and inflammation. Good luck with yor knees Barb!

  10. Hahaaaa!! Now it officially is Bridget’s Campground!!! 🙂 !! I love your photos… They make me feel as though I am there :)!! Beautiful!!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      You noticed the change in the campground sign! I wondered if anyone had seen that. Thanks re my photos. It’s easier to take good photos than bad ones when in a place like that.

  11. Pamelab says:

    So happy you’re back, Sue. Shade and a creek and wild iris – looks like a winner of a site. Like the cowboy photos, too.
    Happy trails!
    Pamelab in Houston

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Pamelab,

      The wild iris are all over in this area. Remember the photo of the iris in the previous post, the one with the sneaky sticks? That was taken at Bridget’s Campground, too.

      Keep cool!

  12. Susan in Dallas says:

    Wow, those campsites all look picture postcard beautiful! And then COWS! You know how I feel about those bovines. Went out early this morning to do some yardwork and turned right around and came back in. Hotter than you know what and not a whisper of any air moving. It can wait. Love Bridget’s campground sign. Hooray for photoshop!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Susan,

      Ever since you told me about your love of bovines, I think of you when I see them. Gee, I should take a photo of those cows for Susan in Dallas…

      Yeah, yard work can wait. It’s not worth heatstroke. Relax, stay cool, enjoy the cow photo and your weekend. 🙂

  13. Another stunning location!

    Have you been given any advice about when not to camp close to a stream, or what to be on the lookout for, to make sure you don’t get caught up in a flooding situation?

    And on the subject of advice, you haven’t mentioned your hummingbird feeders in a long time. We intend to use one, too, but I also read that they can attract bears. I assume we can take it inside at night and it won’t be a problem, but again, you haven’t mentioned them so maybe you decided they were a risk?

    Thanks in advance for any info!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, kisstab-chick,

      About camping close to a stream… In a campground I assume the potential for flooding is minimal. Otherwise the campsite wouldn’t be set up there.

      As for boondocking, one is usually aware if it’s a flash flood area or an area of flooding because of warning signs along the road on the way in. Of course, one can’t depend upon that. Looking at the riverbank will tell you whether it floods. Often you can see the spring floodline. Camp higher than the stream. Now that we have Reggie, I don’t want to be too close to the water’s edge anyway.

      Hummingbird feeders… I put one out in the winter in the desert when the natural source of food isn’t as abundant as, say, around this camp. Here, at this time of year, they have plenty of food from all the bushes and flowers in bloom. A hummingbird did come and check out my shirt and the tail lights on the BLT and then it took off.

      I didn’t give any thought about bears being attracted to a feeder. One thing I’ve learned…. Don’t spill the liquid or you’ll draw ants.

      • Checking for floodlines is smart! There have been some tragic flooding disasters where campers were caught unaware. Be cautious when there are heavy thunderstorms above you.

        When we camped in Colorado a few years ago our feeder drew so many hummingbirds they were swarming around us. We set it on the picnic table while we were eating and it was amazing!

        Thanks for your feedback. Very helpful, as always.

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          You’re welcome. All those hummers at your feeders and around you… must have been fun!

  14. Very nice pictures of your site and surroundings in this one. Bridget’s camp (liked the editing) looks like a great place. How big of a rig do you think would fit? Looking forward to seeing the next boondock.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Lisa W.,

      There are a couple of sites that can accommodate a large rig. The one on the north end where the big fifth wheel was camped… That’s a very big site.

      If I had a big rig, I’d come up here on a weekday (not a Friday) and, since Bridge Campground comes first, I’d look for a site there. If none were large enough for my big rig or if they were occupied, I’d continue on to the other campgrounds. There are three more. (At this time the road beyond Bridge CG is very washboardy.)

      I should add that I haven’t seen any huge Class As. Big fifth wheels hauled by trucks, yes. Maybe it’s the miles of dirt/gravel road that keep the big Class As away.

      You can do a search for “campgrounds at Williams Lake, CO” and you’ll see the others (or look on your Benchmark) or go to the website for San Juan National Forest.

  15. retiredcajunlady says:

    What a gorgeous place to have camped! But…snake!! You guys sure took its visit like champs. I know it is awful of me, but I see cattle and think, “Steak, medium rare!” It is so nice to see you have your blog moxie back. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, retiredcajunlady,

      Whenever one camps near water, there’s a possibility for seeing a snake, right?

      I consider myself to be fairly observant and I’ve only seen a couple of snakes in 5 years of camping.

      Thanks for the nice note. You have a wonderful weekend, too!

  16. Suzette (TN) says:

    Wow! Your campsites just keep getting better and better. I always fall in love with the ones that have running water nearby. And then when you add such beautiful views…what’s not to love? I am particularly taken by the shot of the fence row with the gorgeous mountain in the background. I already said “Wow!” didn’t I? Can’t wait to see what came of your boondock search…but it would be hard for me to leave this place!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Love your enthusiastic reaction to this camp, Suzette!

      That fence row photo… I find it interesting how certain scenes/pics grab readers. I’m glad you liked that one. I was “grabbed” by the scene of the creek below in the morning light and all that green. 🙂 Fun!

      It was nice spending the weekend at Bridget’s Campground. The camp fee encouraged me to look for a boondock. I admit I’m a tightwad. If we can camp for free instead of $10 a night, that’s what we will do. A mix of the two types of camps works!

  17. Cynthia from San Clemente says:

    I went out shopping for food for a Father’s Day BBQ and was delighted to find a post when I got back. Life is back to normal!! When I looked at the first photo I thought you must have gotten a drone, then realized you probably took it from a ridge above your campsite. This campground is really gorgeous, with the mountains and the stream, and all the green – although the snake would have scared the you-know-what right out of me! I have no idea how to tell poisonous from non-poisonous snakes … hmmmm. I’m assuming you photo-shopped that last modification to the campground sign? Although it would be funny to use some red tape and see how long it stayed up there – LOL.

    I hope all the blogarino dads out there have a wonderful, restful Father’s Day !

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      How nice… a BBQ for Father’s Day. Have a great day, Cynthia…

      Here’s how I tell the difference between venomous and non-venomous snakes. (If I’m wrong, someone will let us know!) The venomous snakes have a triangular head. The good snakes don’t. Their head is an extension of their body. Hope that helps…

      Technically I don’t “photoshop.” The Picasa photo editor I use has a text function. I got a giggle out of that sign. 🙂

  18. rvsueandcrew says:

    MESSAGE TO DENISE AND GRACIE PUP!

    Missing you! Hope your hand is healing well, Denise…

  19. Cinandjules (NY) says:

    Oh this campsite is absolutely gorgeous! The creek is an added bonus! Rightfully so Bridget’s place! The BLT looked so homey tucked away….of course until the snake showed up.

    Does “cow boss” mean something? Round ups look like fun….hahh. Total city girl!

    Nice weather here…except the pollen is so thick it looks like waves of smog haze! Thought AO stuck her nose on the ground but she was just breathing! Her nostrils were PACKED! yikes!!!!!

    Have a wonderful day and evening!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Cinandjules,

      Pat in Rochester has an explanation. She says they could be saying “Co’ Boss.” Many years ago, when I helped my grandfather bring his cows from the lower pasture up to the barn for milking, he taught me to say, “Hey, Boss! Hey, Bossy, Bossy!” That’s the upstate NY version, I guess. 🙂

      Poor AO! I can imagine the pollen bothering her. It’s been thick here, too, although not as bad as that. We’ve been on this ridge for several days, not going anywhere, and the pollen is so thick on the PTV’s windshield that the glass is almost opaque. I hope none at your household has allergies.

      You have a great day, too!

      • Cinandjules (NY) says:

        Did hey bossy bossy work? You know you live in cow country boonies when you see a cow running through town. Happened just the other day…and made the news.

        Actually it bothered me more than her! I didn’t want her snorting it into her lungs. She was bothered when I took a wet Kleenex, made a point and tried to get it out.

        Ever notice, they have a flap on the outer part their nose? Goofy!

        No allergies here!

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          Sure, “hey, bossy, bossy” worked! My grandpa taught me an important technique to make cows mind while yelling that — Act confident even if you aren’t. I use that advice to this day!

          Canine nose flap… hmm… I’ll take a look when one of these two sleepyheads wakes up.

          • Krystina ~ Sutton, Vermont says:

            So happpppy to see you back online!! My sister and I were worried about you. As to acting confident, my mother always said “Walk in like you own the place”!!! 🙂

            • rvsueandcrew says:

              Smart mom. 🙂 Hi, Krystina and Krystina’s sister! Sorry about the Big Snafu.

              Thank you for welcoming new blogorinos the way you do. When one blogorino says something to another blogorino, this community is strengthened more than with anything I could do. I’m sure the new people appreciate your warm welcome.

      • Pat in Rochester says:

        North central PA, actually lol!

      • DesertGinger says:

        Okay, then what does “Co boss” mean?

  20. Pat in Rochester says:

    Hi Sue and crew! I’m procrastinating and lucked upon your post today. But now I suppose I’d better get outside and take care of some weeds. It’s a little too warm this weekend but hey – IT’S NOT SNOW! lol!

    On a different note – when I was a little kid my best friend lived on a dairy farm and my mother’s brother ran a different one. We kids would have to go out each evening to bring the cows in for milking and we’d yell “Co’ Boss Co’ Boss”, meaning “Co(me) Boss(y cow) Co(me) Boss(y cow).” I wonder if cowboys do the same?! The little kid me would have been thrilled beyond belief at the connection, having dreamed of wearing the cap and fringed chaps and spending my day out on a horse.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Be careful out in the heat, Pat. That’s interesting about the call for the cows. (See my reply to Cinandjules). I wonder if there are several variations across the country.

      Those cowboys are well outfitted, right down to the gloves. That young man lives the fantasy of many children (at least those who grew up watching westerns on TV).

      • Pat in Rochester says:

        Maybe it’s like misunderstood song lyrics. Have you ever read articles about what people thought was being sung vs the actual words? Anyway, the very first dairyman in the US said something, and since then people have been saying something that sounds like what they thought they heard.

        I’ve been watching “Longmire” on Netflix. Don’t know if you know that one, or the books on which it’s based. Wyoming. Now I want a horse. Not happening, no way. Maybe I just want the horse to bring me Longmire.

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          The cow calls might even have come over from some place like England with the early settlers…

          No, I’ve never seen Longmire. At least I don’t remember it.

        • Debra (CO) says:

          I watched the Longmire series on netflix also and really liked it – love Lou Diamond Phillips. Then started reading the books. I like the books but I think he really overdoes it on the profanity with the Vic character. Its almost enough to make me quite reading them. Of course they tone that down in the TV series. I guess I’m showing my age, but I really don’t see the need for every other word to be the f word or some other profanity.

  21. DesertGinger says:

    Thank goodness! I thought perhaps I was blocked due to my political comment and I was heartbroken. I’m so glad it wasn’t that. I would never do that again because it scared me to death. I feel so much love for all of you, and don’t want to take any chance of losing you. Thank you Sue.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      I’m so relieved to see you here, Ginger! I just came inside from reading in my lounger because I couldn’t get you out of my head. I had decided to send a message to you, similar to what I sent to Denise and Gracie Pup (above). I’m sorry I got carried away in response to your comment. It wasn’t you — That’s a topic about which I have very strong feelings. I should’ve controlled myself. Gosh, you have so many friends here. I’d hate for you to leave us!

      • DesertGinger says:

        Totally not gonna happen. Love you guys too much. Hard to not get emotional about it n topics that matter so much to us, but I will avoid those in future. Just happy for things being back to normal.

    • Applegirl NY says:

      Hey, DG, How are you feeling these days? I know you’ve had a few bumps in the road, but I get the impression you’re on the mend.

  22. Janis harrison says:

    Love your new campsite and this post!! I felt that I was there too ….LOL
    Huggs
    Grandjan

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      That’s just how I want you to feel when you read my posts, Grandjan. I want you to think you’re riding in the PTV with me and the crew or hanging around the campsite with us listening to the river or watching the stars through the BLT’s window…. 🙂

  23. weather says:

    Gosh, the photo taken from the campground entrance shows what a gorgeous setting that place is in, that’s a great shot. Knowing each site is right by the creek would draw me there to consider a stay. How pretty the one you had was would have convinced me to remain at least overnight. I’m really glad Bridget’s special place was that lovely and that the crew so enjoyed their morning’s walk there. One would expect nothing less at Bridge’s Campground 😉

    Did you find that parking away from the bushes made it quite warm inside the BLT? I don’t mind snakes but wouldn’t want them so close you might step on them, either. I know what you mean about the morning glow -light, shadow and shimmering water…beautiful!Still, the cowboys stole this post, Ha!

    BTW, what did the ten minute fix you found to resolve the blog’s problem consist of?

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      I attempted to reply to your comment earlier. My connection kept dropping. It does that sometimes in the afternoon; don’t know why.

      As for the 10-minute fix…. My webhost shut my blog down because of “extreme CPU usage,” CPU meaning Core Processing Units. After a long and tangled journey through chat rooms and being referred to “admins” for review, I was told to install a captcha log-in box and also to set up a robot text file. I did both within a few minutes. Then I had to wait for the “admins” to review again (several hours, after much begging on my part) and wait for the restriction to be lifted (more begging).

      What took two days could have been handled as follows:

      Webhost: I see your problem. Have you tried this?
      Me: Yes.
      Webhost: Have you tried that?
      Me: Yes.
      Webhost: Have your tried this?
      Me: No, I’ll do that right away.
      Webhost: While you’re at it, also try this if you haven’t already done so.
      Me: Good idea! I’ll do that, too!
      Badda-bing, Badda-bing. Problem solved.

      I believe the robot text file took care of the problem. I don’t know why the log-in box disappeared when the restriction was lifted. Anyway, I’m glad it’s gone. My CPU usage is low again!

      Okay, “Did you find that parking away from the bushes made it quite warm inside the BLT?” Not really. It was fine with the fan on. For a couple hours it was cooler outside than inside and that’s where we like to be anyway. Casitas are well-insulated. People mock the carpet on the walls. I love it for several reasons and insulation is one of them.

      I’m pleased with your reaction to this post and it’s photos. “The coyboys stole this post.” I agree!

      • weather says:

        Wishing you have a wonderful day whether on or offline 🙂 I seem to be encountering a problem replying and am hoping the issue is with my connection. I don’t know if a phone call would help you resolve problems with Hostgator more quickly should any arise. I’d be happy to do whatever I could to help.

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          I’m sorry to hear that’s happening, weather. Something isn’t right. I don’t phone, preferring chat rooms (although slower), is having to put the phone down to do something, then pick it up again, and worse than that, I’m very visual. Audio instructions, especially technical, can be difficult.

          Having the Hostgator website come up has me wondering if the problem isn’t originating here, but with Hostgator. Since you’re able to access both blog and comments, albeit in an annoying process, let’s give it a little time, see if it’s happening to anyone else, or clears up with you, and in the meantime I’ll see what I can do.

          Thanks for letting me know. BTW, good morning! 🙂

          • weather says:

            Good morning 🙂 A reader used the Bayfield Bunch site earlier today to say your website is down, so it is happening to someone else.

          • rvsueandcrew says:

            I see what you mean. I received a delay while trying to reply and 15,000 words in tiny font and in red popped up telling me a myriad of things that could be wrong. I’d hate to meet the creature that is capable of reading and understanding that. Looks like another day down the toilet.. .

            • weather says:

              Sorry to hear that, Sue, I pray it is a simple quick fix this time. It’s callous at best to say have a good day, I do hope this all leaves you with sometime to enjoy other things, though.

            • rvsueandcrew says:

              I submitted a ticket with an explanation of the problem. Another reason I don’t phone, it leaves no record of what has been communicated. One has to explain the problem over and over… Thanks for the hope. 🙂

            • weather says:

              It’s likely not affecting readers that access your blog with the link to see all comments your new post emails provide, mine works, so that’s at least a bit of good news. I’m on my way out to meet a friend now, will ck. in a bit later.

            • weather says:

              Just got back in from a work/play visit. I’m happy to see that there are no problems accessing or replying on your blog now. I hope it was a quick painless process you went through this time, and that Congratulations ,You’re Done! applies 🙂

            • rvsueandcrew says:

              Painless, no. Productive, no. Tomorrow is another day! I hope you enjoyed your work and play today. 🙂

            • weather says:

              Oh dear, I’m sorry to hear such disappointing news. Thanks, I did enjoy my day.

              Hopefully we’ll both enjoy most of tomorrow and all of it’s results. May your sleep tonight be restful and bring you comforting sweet dreams

            • rvsueandcrew says:

              We did have a good night’s rest. Thank you, weather.

            • weather says:

              Good morning 🙂 where and when was the beautiful new header photo taken? I think I recognize it as one I saw in a post yet can’t offhand remember the story connected to it.

            • rvsueandcrew says:

              Good morning, weather 🙂

              That camp was northeast of Dubois, Wyoming, in the Absaroka Range.
              “Camp Absaroka” — A river runs through it”

              “The story connected to it”– That’s where Spike had his last soaks. In fact, that’s him in the header photo.

              More painting today or is that job done?

            • weather says:

              Thanks for the link, it makes sense now that I couldn’t remember that post. The reason I’d seen it so often was to keep daily notes going your way at a difficult time…my built in spam filter was blocking it out.

              Yes, more painting today, until it gets too hot out. It may take 3 more sessions to finish the project, one I’m anxious to finish. I’ll explain it another time. What do have planned for today?

            • rvsueandcrew says:

              Our plan for today? I’ll start putting things away, check the oil and tire pressures, clean the windshield of pollen, tidy up the interior… preparations for moving camp tomorrow.

            • weather says:

              Amid your preparations I hope you feel excited as you anticipate finding your next place. With all your recent effort to keep this blog open,you’re overdue for a time to just relish the freedom and adventure in your life.

            • rvsueandcrew says:

              That’s a nice thought… Right now I’m having a devil of a time uploading photos and putting together a post. Very slow and connection drops. It’ll get done. I’m impatient to show y’all our camp on the ridge! 🙂

            • weather says:

              Sorry the connection is slow and dropping, don’t endure more of that to reply to this. Thanks for the new post on the way announcement 🙂 !! See you then and there

      • weather says:

        To be specific, if I try to access your blog or refresh the page either it pauses indefinitely or I get the Hostgator website’s screen. By trying again I am able to make it work. I’ll try to check my email and back here now and then throughout my morning and day.

  24. Linda a. says:

    Beautiful campground….. It’s funny but as I opened your blog and read that
    you were searching out campsites, it crossed my mind, ‘wonder if there are
    poisinus snakes in that area’. Glad to hear maybe not.
    Think I might hang out there a bit, nice !!!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Linda a.,

      Well, I hate to tell ya’…. The Rocky Mountains are home to poisonous snakes. Yes, they are in that area and throughout the West. Don’t let that stop you from camping and enjoying the many beautiful places. . . . Five years and I haven’t come across one yet!

      • DesertGinger says:

        When I was a kid in Oklahoma, we learned to listen for the rattlers. They were everywhere, but people just got used to them and were careful. You rarely heard about someone getting bit, and people rarely died. Takes a really big snake to have enough venom to kill an adult. I remember when we were at camp we carried some kind of kit for snake bites but I don’t remember what was in it, other than a tourniquet.

  25. Annette in Nebraska says:

    Loved your post today… but then I always read and love your posts… rarely do I comment. But, happiness is yours as your website is “rescued”… so I wish you continued good vibes 🙂

  26. Mick'nTN says:

    Rocky Mountain beautiful for sure! Thanks for the great photos. Easy to see why people fall in love with Colorado.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      You’re welcome, Mick. Yes, this is a lovely state. You have some pretty scenery in eastern Tennessee, too!

    • DesertGinger says:

      Mick…when I thought I might be locked out I thought “oh no, how am I gonna contact Mick when I get a van to advise on solar!” If you would email me I would love to tuck your address away somewhere.

      • rvsueandcrew says:

        Ginger…. I sent Mick your email address, okay? I removed it from the comment. Don’t want you getting any weird emails.

      • Mick'nTN says:

        I’m here DeGin. A couple months ago I met a blogorino in person and in July I will meet a second blogorino. My advice keeps getting me work, but I enjoy it.

  27. BadgerRickInWis says:

    OK, just too cute to photoshop the campground sign. Indeed you are in the realm of HRH Princess Bridget, the evil robots have been quashed and peace shall reign through the land. Life is good.

    I can’t tell you how much I love the photos and love this part of the country. You are in an area that holds a very special place in my heart.

    I went to elementary school in Pagosa Springs many years ago. The town has changed a lot since those days. Back than it was just a poor ranching town. Almost half the kids in my school were Native American and many were bused in from the Rez. This was all pre Great Society and although as kids we were of course oblivious to it looking back on it now I realize the abject poverty many of my friends lived in.

    Growing up like that and in an area of such immense natural beauty gave me a perspective that I have always felt is pretty unique for a white male in America. It’s an experience I have always called one of the greatest blessings I will ever receive. Thank you for giving me a fresh perspective and letting me tag along.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      I hope you never stop tagging along with us.

      You share a part of your life that led to the person you are now. I knew you had some special (for lack of a better word) experiences during your formative years. Always enjoy your comments, Rick. I read them slowly to savor your thoughts and your writing.

    • DesertGinger says:

      You are another one that I thought “how can I manage without Rick’s kindness and humor”. You add a lot here Rick. Thank you.

      • BadgerRickInWis says:

        Back at ya girl.
        And don’t worry you can’t get rid of me. Family doesn’t work like that.

    • Debra (CO) says:

      Hi Rick,
      I really enjoyed reading your post about growing up in Pagosa Springs and particularly your statement about your unique perspective. I think we would be in a better place if more had this perspective. Yes, I imagine the area has changed quite a bit from when you lived there. I know how much change I saw from the times I visited in the 70s to 80s to when I moved here in 2006. I was SHOCKED at the change!

      • BadgerRickInWis says:

        Thanks Debra,
        Yea, there were no million dollar homes in those days.

        Regarding perspective the school I went to was about 40% native (they were called Indians in those days) and about 30% Latino (they were called Mexicans in those days) and the remaining 30% was white (we were called White in those days 🙂 )

        We moved to the mid-west when I was 12 but It wasn’t until years later and I went to college and met people from all over the world that I began to realize how unique my childhood was. Basically I was a white American male who experienced what it was like to not be in the racial majority. Obviously a complex issue and this isn’t the place to discuss it. But I have come to think of it as a great blessing.

        • edlfrey says:

          I too was in the White racial minority during most of my school years until I went to university. I never thought about it but I guess it was a unique childhood. Perhaps it provided me with a base that I have used all my life where I feel comfortable in foreign countries.

        • DesertGinger says:

          Strange. I grew up like that too, in northeastern Oklahoma, which is totally Indian territory. My next door neighbors were Johnny and Chebon who both grew up to be known as dancers, but Johnny is still revered among native Americans as a fancy dancer. This article mentions him. http://amerinda.org/talkingstick/4-4/steve.html My other neighbors and playmates were Mexicans. So yeah…I was often the minority which probably contributed to my two usbands being Creek Indian, and Guatemalan.

  28. Rover Ronda (WA) says:

    Oh Bridget, your campground looks absolutely lovely!

  29. COgal says:

    When we drove from Durango to Pagosa Springs last Sunday we were stopped on Rte. 160 by cowboys and cowgirls driving cattle down the road, a wonderful sight on a Sunday morning.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Isn’t that fun! If you’ve read my old posts, you know the crew and I have come across cattle drives, too. Fun to photograph!

  30. AZ Jim says:

    It’s so nice to see all my fellow Blogorino’s here and things are fun again.. It is 112 here now, supposed to get to 115 but I dunno. Tomorrow they are predicting 122 degrees. I want to thank Mr. Carrier who invented AC. I remember when I was a kid, dad (RIP) used to put a floor fan by a window then hang a wet beach towel over it to cool our home. AC had been invented by then but we couldn’t afford to retrofit into out house. Remember in the 40’s how you would see the marquee on movie theaters advertising “20 degrees cooler inside”? Remember too the silly contraptions you hooked on the car window which had water inside and as you drove it pushed cool air into the car. Ahhh thanks again Mr. Carrier.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      It is nice to have our group here again, Jim. You have such interesting memories to share, reminders of days past, the little things . . . .

      I don’t need to tell you how to cope with heat. You and Detta are pros by now.

      • DesertGinger says:

        Great too see you again too, Jim. Getting hot down here in Tucson too. Tomorrow they are saying 118. I was out today when it was 109, and I didn’t find it that hot. I guess I’m acclimating to AZ.

  31. Lana in Phoenix says:

    Read your blog every day, but don’t comment much. I am a lurker! I really am a faithful blogerino and look forward to your posts. Some day, after family obligations are fulfilled, I hope to join your lifestyle. I’m wondering: you seem to be moving more frequently than you used to – are you doing that because your privacy is invaded more often or do you just want to move around? I’m hoping it isn’t the first. Love your exploration of Colorado!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Lana,

      Great seeing you here! I do hope you join the lifestyle someday, if that’s your dream. 🙂

      We’re moving more frequently because of the time of year. Up until recently we were held back by weather — cold and wind, mostly. It’s summertime! Time to go places! When winter comes again, we will slow way down, rest and recuperate, and keep warm in southern Arizona and southern California.

      Thank you for hoping our privacy isn’t being invaded. We’ve had a long stretch with no gawkers, drop-ins, or drive-bys. Of course, moving more frequently tends to deter that. Whatever the case, I’m thankful.

      • Lana in Phoenix says:

        After re-reading my comment, and especially with Fathers’ Day tomorrow, I want to clarify that my “family obligations” are to my 98 year old father who adopted me when I was 3 years old and who has always treated me as if I were his very own child. I had major health issues as a child and through my teen years. Every time I was in the hospital (once I was there 3 months), he came to see me every day after his work day was done. My obligation is not something I HAVE to do, it is something I
        WANT to do.

  32. Barbara (Nashville) says:

    The campsite and photos are lovely. DH childhood friend lives outside of Denver. We have visited several times and find the state beautiful. Love the state but the politics is another matter. If I have to have sticks & bricks, think I will just stay in TN.
    Can’t wait to see the new boondock. The road leading there has such pretty scenery. Every time I see cattle driving, I think of the series “Lonesome Dove,” which is one of my favorites along with “Dancing With Wolves.”

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Those were two great movies. I’ve always enjoyed Robert Duvall especially. The other guy is okay, too. Thanks for the compliment on the photos, Barbara. Have a good evening, hug Angel for me…

  33. Pookie in Todd Mission Tx says:

    Ive loved Colorado all my life ever since my first visit…of course, being a flat lander
    Im sure dont have anything to do with that…..
    your pictures are gorgeous with the mountains in the background…
    I do remember after driving around in the mountains for a week or 10 days
    I was relieved to get back to the flat land of Texas….
    thanks for the wonderful post….I am still on a reminiscence trip with you…
    chuck

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, chuck,

      I can understand you being ready to get back to the flat lands after a while. I sense that I’ll feel the same way. I’m determined to see and live among more mountains though before I skedaddle. I grew up in NY state where the mountains aren’t as formidable and I lived many years on the flat lands of the South.

      I’m glad you’re enjoying the photos and that our trip is your trip back in time.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Also… Happy Father’s Day tomorrow!

      • Pookie in Todd Mission Tx says:

        thanks a bunch….
        we are leaving for Virginia in the morning to visit our #2 son and his family
        who is a navy vet…..its a torried 2 day drive of approx 12 hours and 10 h0urs
        and at my age driving much less riding is not good on my old bones….this
        may be our last trip to drive out there…..altho it is an easy drive with
        interstate all the way to virginia once we get on the other side of Houston….
        boring scenery too with nothing but pine trees……..at least in Texas you
        have advertising to read along theway….HA

    Great post Miss Sue……horses n cowboys…don’t git much better then that !
    Thanks

  35. Debra (CO) says:

    Hi Sue, glad that you have made it to CO! And you are in some of the prettiest country in the state, I just love the San Juans. The first time I visited CO was in the mid 70s. I was in my early 20s and my youngest sister was 16. We packed up my VW van that was outfitted with some bunks and stuff for camping and took off from Tampa FL headed west. We went to the Weminuiche wilderness and went backpacking for a few days. Then went to Grand Canyon and back through AZ thru Petrified Forest, etc. Looking back at some of the really DUMB things we did it’s a wonder we made it back home! We get a lot of laughs about it now! I think when one is young and stupid you are given more grace. If not, none of us would grow old, haha!

    For those concerned about snakes who may be visiting CO. The only venemous snake in CO is the rattlesnake. They are really quite common particularly in the foothills from 6000 to 7500 ft. I have seen quite a few while hiking in the foothills around metro Denver. They are not aggressive so as long as you pay attention to where you are stepping you should be fine. I almost stepped on one while hiking in Roxborough State Park. I was lolly gagging along looking up in the trees and not paying attention when I heard this buzzzzzzzz! To that time I had never heard a rattle snake but I can assure you without even seeing it I instantly knew what that sound was. I looked down and the snake was stretched out on the trail with its head facing in the opposite direction that I was walking and was about 5 inches from my foot. I took off running! If the snake had been coiled most likely I would have been bitten. After that I ALWAYS pay attention to the trail and where I am stepping. Generally, there are no snakes above about 9000 ft. So if you are really afraid of them, go high!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Debra,

      You may have done some “crazy” things in your youth, but now you can look back on those days and smile. Risk has reward.

      Thanks for the snake info and your experience co-existing with them. I also thank you for giving me motivation to camp above 9,000 feet.

  36. Patsy (nothern ontario) says:

    in northern ontario where we live with minus 20 to 40 7 months of the year its an amazing 32 degrees right now which is about 90 degrees right now, sweet pouring down way to darn hot, not used to this extreme heat will have to think about air next year. i look at my camper and think probably cooler in there tonight lol.. Snakes French river here is beautiful, however i won’t go camping there because they have a high population of rattlers, although i don’t mind snakes, those scare me lol.. Sue and everyone i learn so much from this blog one day i will be full time until then my trailer is ready to go for vacations 🙂 thanks to everyone who shares their rv adventures. love what the pics, the stories, and what people buy on amazon, always helpful. 🙂

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Patsy,

      I don’t know how anyone copes with cold for several months every year. I’m assuming you’re talking Fahrenheit for “minus 20 to 40″….

      Isn’t it great how blogorinos share their knowledge and adventures here? We learn a lot from each other. I know how helpful that can be for someone like yourself who has the dream of full-timing. Thank you for giving us a glimpse into your life in northern Ontario.

  37. I’m glad to be able to get back to your blog again. For a few days I wasn’t able to. It was requiring a password.

    Hi everyone,
    What a LOVEly campground HRH has allowed her subjects…er fans to view, paw elevated in a royal wave. Good looking out for those snakes, glad it wasn’t a dangerous one.b
    We are relaxing in our own private campsite at a friend’s house in NH. Truck repairs are scheduled to start tomorrow. While truckless we will finish wiring the trailer and reorganize. After our rest here we are off to NJ for a visit, then South to have our Solar Power installed, YEAH!! I am so looking forward to life without hookups, except for those must have AC days.
    Mick and I have figured out a 260 watt Kyocera Solar panel fixed to my truck camper with a beautiful stainless steel rack, a Morningstar charge controller and two Lifeline batteries in the truck bed. I will use a cord to connect my trailer to the battery bank for power when camped. Thanks Sue for you example of how it’s done and the generous help of Mick in TN. I wouldn’t have this power option without you and your blog. You have improved my life immensely by what you have learned and shared about life on the road. Now I am doing it too! Enjoying a lovely Sunday afternoon in my outdoor living room. Thanks again.

    I don’t know what is more beautiful – the mountains or the cowboys. Love them both!
    We spent a beautiful weekend in the mountains. It was one of those magical summer weekends, hanging on the lake during the day, reading on the porch and spending some time around the campfire in the evening. Summertime!

  47. Deena in Peoria says:

    Received Miss Mollie’s PetGear Green colored Carriage this afternoon. Put it together and have been transporting her around the house (no furiture so lots of turning space) as it was 122 degree in my back yard. Mollie seems to be enjoying herself though she did break the little snap on the strap. Will use her car seat attachment for securing her inside the cart.

    I feel more secure with her inside her carriage because sometimes it is difficult to handle her leash when I have to use my cane. Thank you Sue for telling us all about HRH Bridget’s royal ride, it is beautiful and so worth the money.

    The 1st buyer has failed to qualify for a loan so back in the MLS.

    Deena and Miss Mollie

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Good morning, Deena and Miss Mollie,

      I saw the stroller on my Amazon orders report and smiled thinking, “Miss Mollie got a green one!” Thank you for sending me a nice commission. 🙂

      I’m pleased to read that Mollie likes it. I bet she’ll like it even more when you’re outside and the scenery drifts by. I never strap Bridget in. She never tries to jump out; she looks over her shoulder at me and stands up for me to lift her out. I’m sorry about the snap breaking.

      Don’t you just love how the stroller glides on those big wheels? I imagine holding on to the push handle can act somewhat like a cane for you, steadying your balance.

      Thanks again — I wish you and Mollie many pleasant strolls together.

      Darn, the deal didn’t go through… Another buyer will come along…

  48. Such a pretty, pretty spot along the water! Bridget should have her own campground – and this is a great one for her 🙂 Nothing like a little snake to get the heart pumping!!

  49. DeAnne in TN says:

    Hey Sue and blogorinos!
    I just read an article that explained why dogs “back-hoe” after they do their business. Mine does too, so I was curious. It is part of the marking of the territory. Not only does the poo leave a scent marker, but there are actually pheromones in the pads of a dog’s paws, so that leaves an additional marker. Maybe some of your readers knew this, but…who’d a thunk?

      That is very interesting about the “back-hoe”, my Boston did that and we thought it was so funny. Miss her dearly. Happy Dad’s Day to all.
      Love to Sue and the Crew, thanks for sharing your experiences.

        I had a Boston for 11 years–lost her to cancer. I think about her everyday. I can’t even get another Boston after four years because I’m afraid I will compare constantly. Only Boston owners understand Boston love. Sorry about your girl.

        • Jo in OR says:

          Our Lucy was 10, she had cancer, also. It’s been two years since we lost her. You are so right about the Boston love.
          Sorry about your girl, I know how painful it is.

      You taught us something today, Miss D. 🙂 I figured the kicking was a marking behavior. Didn’t know about the pads. Reggie is a master back-kicker. One time he backhoed so vigorously that he lost his balance and fell down. Yes, I laughed (behind my hand).

        When I walk Melvin I spend 80% of my time waiting for him to stop. It always reminds me of a bull getting ready to charge (even though it’s the wrong legs!)

    Happy Solstice everyone – lots of sunshine here in NC. Sue, just wanted to let you know I’m another one who doesn’t mind jumping through hoops if it means continuing to follow you on your travels.

    Happy Monday Sue!

    Your new header is paradise. Hope you were able to spend plenty of time there. I’m hoping you are staying much longer at each camp at you go up in altitude. I’m also hoping you spend the entire ‘non-winter’ season in Colorado. Unless you are jonesing for ocean.

    Did you mention that Reggie walked on his front paws only, sometimes? My friend’s pupper did that and I told him (the dog) that his cyber brother did that, too. Then I noticed he was ‘watering the grass’ while up in the air. Does Reg do that, too? Was wondering if it was a Chi thing?

    You probably are aware but wanted to mention, with higher altitude, higher/more spf sunscreen and moisture. Moisturize the inside and outside of you. You are much closer to the sun. (YOUR sun is really your Crew 😉 🙂 )

    Happy ‘Tails’

      Was that header in the Tetons? Is that Spike?

      • rvsueandcrew says:

        Yes, that’s Spike, a few days before he passed. The mountains are the Absarokas, northeast of the Tetons.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks for the mountain advce, MV gal. No, Reg doesn’t water the grass while walking on his front paws. He doesn’t walk on his front paws much, mostly when he feels his tether on his back legs.

      That header is from 2014 — near Dubois, Wyoming.

  52. Hoops? pfft. That is nothing to me.. I just want to make sure my password and user name is secure from others who might do harm. But hoops, bring em on!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      If you’re concerned about security, use a password and user name that’s different from any other you use elsewhere. Yeah, even hula hoops are easy. 🙂
