Banishing Beverly Hills Birthdays Birthdays were never a big deal when I was growing up. In Beverly Hills, the discussion of age was/is as taboo as talking about a favorite plastic surgeon. I remember having only one birthday party when I was a kid. My parents chartered a very 1980s bus that drove me, my brother and 30 of my parents' closest friends to an ice cream parlor. Did I mention t...

Autumn Tomato Soup Recipes Happy First Day Of Fall!
The year is flying by and it’s a bittersweet feeling for me. My kids are growing up so quickly and we have a huge list of adventures that we would really love to experience with them. Knocking off Mount Rushmore from our RV Bucket list was biggie for us, but now we are needing a new goal. In my mind it’s Washing...

It was something that I researched, designed, and installed myself. I added a second 100W flexible panel this spring and have used the full set...

The simple answer is “It Depends…”

The views from the mountain were spectacular. The balance of the day was spent at our CG enjoying the 70 degree weather.

Today we traveled over the mountain aga...

Caliente Spring Resort
I stayed at Caliente Springs Resort this winter and at a “State of the Resorts meeting” the management asked for an online review.  They may feel that they have the best resort available but I must say they are brave to ask for an online review with me in the room.

From Tampa to Everywhere.... One of my favorite things to do is lie on the sofa, close my eyes, and recreate a trip....the miles, the feel of the road, the terrain, the people I see and meet along the way.
I started in 2007, no sense pretending my memory is that sharp....so, I'll begin with the most recent..my Labor Day trip to the northeast Georgia mountains to visit an old e...

Mountain Hwy.

Posted by washtech in washtech's Blog, 01 August 2014 - - - - - - · 1,062 views

Good Morning Fellow Travelers:
One quick question, I'm considering traveling out to CO and visiting the Durango area. It appears that highway 160 running "west" off of I-25 is the most direct route. Does anyone have any "experience" with this particular highway?
Thanks for any input.
