We drove 45 miles down the road to the Kelly-Dahl Campground in the Roosevelt National Forest, 3 miles outside Nederland, Colorado. We stopped in Nederland at the Wild Mountain Smokehouse and Brewery and had a couple of beers and some fresh baked soft pretzels. We found a half price bookstore that was also sold ice cream and offered massages. Carolyn was out of reading material so she bought a book. This is an old mining town now full of “alternative lifestyle” people. There was a cryogenic mausoleum and the gas station had a nice selection of glass bongs. Also there was an old railroad car which was Buffalo Bill’s personal car when he was in a traveling circus in 1914 and 1915. I bought some motor oil at the local Ace Hardware and changed the Honda generator’s oil. We tried out our new umbrella and stand which we bought at Dick’s Sporting Goods in Longmont. We have been gone 10 weeks and have traveled 10,073 miles so far.
