Moving Day

I spent the 4th of July weekend in an RV park in Golden, CO because all the state parks were reserved.  I met some very nice neighbors on each side of my rather tight RV parking spot.  One neighbor guy from Ft. Worth is an avid metal detector/hunter and he spent a half hour showing me how to use my newly acquired metal detector (thanks again to my brother Jerry!) so no doubt vast riches will be detected and help fund my nomadic life! During my time there I reserved Mon - Thur at St Vrain State Park near Longmont, CO (35 miles north of Denver) so I moved to my campsite this morning.  St Vrain is somewhat unique in that every campsite has water access which is what drew me to it (Kayaking!).

View from the door, shower house in the distance.
I'd like to get to the degree of comfort with my camping skills to boon dock on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land for free but I have a ways to go before I get there so these (paid for) state campground outings are sort of like my "training wheels" until I get the kinks ironed out.  The campsites here at St. Vrain are fairly level and positively spacious compared to the Golden RV park I left.

The door was soon shut so AC could run in today's 89 degree temps.
 It'd be too hot to go kayaking until it cools off towards evening.  This will be a shorter post but I'll put another one up later in the week.

Thanks for reading!
