Visiting Isaac and Gabe in Steamboat Springs, Colorado
August 23 - 26

We eliminated two stops along the way. So we arrived in Steamboat two days early. Isaac already asked off for the later days; so he had to work the first two of the four we were here. Also, we were pleasantly surprised by Gabe. We thought he was still in Oregon.

We passed Fort Riley in Kansas. Johnny was driving and asked me to take a picture.

Road construction ahead and single lane. He did great.

Look at the size of the baked potatoes.
