0615 Woken up by a loud bird outside my window. Shower and coffee.
0806 Leave for breakfast with my high school friend, Jason. We’re meeting at Nana’s Kitchen in Falcon.
1000 Back home. The kids are still in their pajamas, playing Wii.
1121 Still packing and loading. Just driving to Denver today so not in a big hurry to get on the road.
1140 Starbucks drive-thru for coffee
1152 Sonic drive-thru for lunch.
12:15 p.m. Monument Hill, elevation 7352 feet. There is a sudden big slowdown which almost causes a wreck.
12:27 p.m. Coal train
12:28 p.m. Cows
12:30 p.m. Castle Rock, elevation 6202 feet.
12:48 p.m. Denver, elevation 5280 feet – the mile high city!
1:21 p.m. Spicy Pickles restaurant. Wonder what kind of food they serve there.
1:25 p.m. Arrive at Dar’s house.
4:13 p.m. Leaving Dar’s house to head over to Scott’s place. Looks like a storm is blowing in.
4:40 p.m. Arrive at Scott’s. He’s not home yet so we follow his “how to break in” instructions that he gave me earlier.
5:47 p.m. Scott’s home from work! Time for snacks!
6:10 p.m. Dar and her kids are here.
6:40 p.m. Scott (the other Scott!) is here now too.
10:30 p.m. After a great time together, Dar and her family head home.
11:00 p.m. I finally get my kids to bed.
0100 Stayed up too late talking to Scott. Could be a tough drive tomorrow. Worth it though since we don’t get a chance to see him that often.
