Dodge City

While we were in Golden Cindy's uncle passed away at 94.  So we left the coach at Steve's and drove back to Paincourtville for a week to make the funeral.  Gonna miss you Uncle! 
We arrived at Scott's and surprised Ella.  Scott told her he had a surprise for her so she knew something was up but didn't know it was us.  She was very excited when she saw us. 
It was nice to get back home for a week to see family and visit.
Then we drove back to Golden, spent a few more days at Steve's then headed to the Newell factory.
We spent a few days there touring the production plant and visiting with people that I had spoken to on the phone before.  Always nice to put a face with a name and get to know people a little better.
Newells are all built to order and customized like the buyer wants.  Totally amazing to see a pile of iron being welded together into a chassis.  Then the different stages as the sides are put on and the interior comes together.  The new ones use Ipads to control all of the lights, fans, blinds, a/c and heat, and almost everything else.
Then we drove west to Dodge City, KS.  We had planned to leave this morning but watching the latest winter storm we may either stay here or drive 3 hours to Lamar, CO for the night then sit a day or two to let the roads clear.  They're expecting temperatures in the low 20's and some snow and rain.  Don't want to drive on snow or icy roads.  We have a campground booked for a week in Colorado Springs then head up to Denver to visit David & Denise and explore the area.  Then we'll leave the coach and fly back home for Mike's graduation and Ella's dance recital and birthday.
