Colorado or Bust

May 7, 2021

We embarked on a barely planned trip today, and tonight we are feeling the effects of travel.

We flew, although discussed driving as a viable alternative. Carpooler came through again and dropped us at the airport. Since the tickets were obtained less than 24 hours before flight time, we were at the mercy of the air gods for seats. They winked in our direction and we scored seats together. Back of the plane, but together.

Relatively short flight, with only normal turbulence landing in Denver. The next travel form was a shuttle bus to get to Fort Collins. Again, due to the late booking, we were put on the 3:50 shuttle, even though we were in time for the 2:50. But hoping for an empty seat on the earlier bus, we hung out at the stop. And scored two seats.

Again because of the late booking we were not able to get the mini shuttle to the hotel. So, arriving at the Harmony Transit Center, the next vehicle to find was an Uber.

Honda Odyssey to the rescue! Finally at the hotel we contacted Carl’s brother Steve for the ride to his house. And finally able to see Carl’s Dad!

It’s been a long day, and we are happy to be here.
