Where Have the WaldoJoneses Been?
I wanted to give an update on where we’ve been and where we are going. My apologies, this is going to be a long post.
First, let me begin with where we have been:
We left Colorado in May 2017. Needless to say – a lot happened between then and now (Oct 16 2017).
We hit the Cheyenne Wyoming Air Force base for a night, then moved to Rock Springs Wyoming where we had a fuel leak on our motorhome. This was just before Memorial Day. I bought 2 ball caps from Rocky Mountain Cummins for $800.00 each and they purportedly fixed my fuel leak for free. Long story short it took them a few attempts to finally resolve the issue.
Today I wanted to share with you a product review.

If you are like me, internet service is crucial for happiness!
Since I worked in the Telecommunications field for 25 plus years and understand the complexities of network buildout, customer service, and service reliability, I was aware that Verizon really does have the largest footprint for a cellular network in the country. For that reason alone, I have been a Verizon customer for cell phone / internet service for years, and am paying their exorbitant prices for the pleasure.
In a case of “do as I say, not as I do” I’ve spent years telling my business customers that having a single provider and connection for their mission critical online presence is inviting disaster into their lives, but I never felt my needs justified the expense – until now!
Military Famcamp Park Review: US Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colorado
As many of you know, we recently moved from Colorado to Idaho in our 1998 Holiday Rambler Class A Diesel Pusher RV. We rented a place for our home base in Idaho Falls, Idaho where our son currently lives as he is still under age. But, we also took a nursing contract position in Mountain Home Idaho for 13 weeks. Unfortunately for us, that means paying rent on two separate locations until our son goes off to college. We chose to keep a location in Idaho because Idaho is a “Compact” state for Nursing Licensure. There were other places we could have chosen to limit our tax situation but we decided we would rather have a stable home base for the next few years while we figure out what we are going to do with our lives.
Thankfully, every journey begins with a single step! In our case, that step was taking our RV out on a maiden voyage for a few days while we vacate our Denver rental home and attend our son’s High School Graduation. My plan was NOT to do blog entries showing normal “camping” type activities but after our first stay we decided to document our travels (trials and tribulations?) for all to see and maybe learn from. It is now July and our journey started in mid May 2017.
Below is our first campground review (yes – I have a few more to do to get caught up).
We spent a night (Monday) at our dealership in Frederick Colorado for free with power and a dump station. Moved Tuesday to the FE Warren Air Force base in Cheyenne Wyoming. 10.00 for 50amp power. Filled up our water tank too.
Drove to Rock Springs Wyoming today. About 250 miles and pulled into Walmart. Wife went shopping and I checked on the toad. Smelled Diesel fuel and crawled under the rig. Nice big leak!
I googled a cummins shop here in Rock Springs and drove it over. Their team jumped me to front of line and the mechanic was looking at the rig in 30 minutes. Wow!
