(Buckley AFB, Aurora, CO) Hi 90 Lo 57 – We stayed in until we heard from the Toyota dealer about our car. Jim called about 10:30 to see what the status was and found out they had to order some parts, which should be in tomorrow morning. It took a couple of tries to get hold of them. Service isn’t like it used to be, they either put you on hold and forget you, or don’t answer. We’ve had a lot of trouble lately getting answers on the first call when calling campgrounds too.
Since we didn’t go anywhere, I went walking around the campground. We’re about a mile or so from the main base so there’s nothing around the campground except a walking path.
This is behind the RV.
There's so little grass around that when it rains we get mud on our concrete pad.
We face the base runway. There were four F-16 fighters flying around this morning. They did all kinds of maneuvers, and they’re very loud! The afterburners shake the RV, but we love it. We lived with the "sound of freedom" for 26 years, so it brought back old times.
We never get tired of watching the cloud formations over the mountains.
Looks like a star burst.
Just a few feet from us is a little building next to a small lake. I'm not sure what it's for but it's all roped off and a couple of men were working there today.
The lake is very low.
This small picnic pavilion is on the edge of the campground.
Another bathhouse, which is really nice.
Another view of our site.
In the distance is the indoor gun range. It’s usually busy in the mornings with the sound of gunfire in the air. Again, we don't mind.
Jim went for a dental appointment to get a follow-up cleaning from some dental work he had done this past March. While he was gone I cleaned the RV and watched the weather channel. I also read a lot of blogs.
Tomorrow we’re getting out. We're going in the truck, which will be unusual for us. Jim wants me to drive it to get used to its large size. Wish me luck! :)
