Arrived at La Mesa RV Park in Cortez, CO (pop. 8,500) about 4 pm. What a nice park. No pool but we don’t need one. Staying 17 days. We set up in about ½ hour. They have a Safeway & City Market (Kroger) as well as a Super Walmart. They also have quite a few “weed stores” (as Georgie puts it). You can easily spot them…they have a large green cross outside. Georgie made sure this was our 1st stop! That’s all I heard from him the last 2 days of our drive here.
Since it’s legal here I decided I could smoke some. Yea, well! We were laughing SO hard. I was laughing so hard I started to fall backwards. I grabbed the edge of the counter…and ripped it off…on my way down to the floor! Great! Of course this was just one more thing to laugh about! Old people and dope…what can I say.

I stayed home to do some things around the house. Georgie road to Dolores. He rode through San Juan National Forest. Was only gone about 2 hours.
We’ll take a drive up there some evening before dark. Georgie thinks we’ll see a lot of wild life.

Back again to Durango for Annie’s check up. Got her bandages off but now has to wear her Cone of Shame ALL THE TIME!
Drove up to Silverton (pop. 629). What a SCARY drive! Rt. 550 is called The Million Dollar Rd. We hit a deer as we came around a curve. Most of the road has no shoulder, just a looooong drop off. No guardrails! Silverton doesn’t have any fast food places BUT…they have at least 1 “weed store”. We decided that since Annie will have to go to the Vet at least 1 more time we’d stay another week in Durango and ride the Harley’s up to Silverton.

Started to wax the rig. This is going to be a big job. We’ll do a little at a time. It was somewhat overcast today so was a good day to do this.
Dropped the bedroom clicker beside the bed. On my side there is a small space between the bed and the floor so the slide can go in and out. The clicker fell down in that small space. We had to take the strip of wood off Georgie’s side then slide the broom handle all the way across to push the clicker up where I could reach it. Georgie was in charge of putting the strip of wood back. He’s getting so handly!
We fixed the emergency window latch. It broke on the drive here. We ordered a new one.
