A Cornhole Win for Inger

Day 127


A day of domestic duties. Still pretty wiped out from the hike yesterday. So it was a good day to just hang out at the trailer and get stuff done. I worked on getting caught up on paperwork/budget stuff while Jeff took a trip into town to pick up a few groceries and drop by the local Ace Hardware for a few gadgets to get some projects done on the trailer.


  1. Replace the shelf brackets in the bathroom closet with beefier ones. Every time we’d store anything on the 2nd adjustable shelf, it would collapse on the travels. Building it the Latreille way….I can safely say that shelf is not going anywhere. He had to make it non-adjustable, but it’s in the perfect spot.

  2. Added the new towel rack we ordered from Lance. The trailer only came with one narrow one, not quite long enough for 2 bath towels. So we staggered the 2nd one that fit perfectly. Caution...make sure the trailer is perfectly level to have your level device read accurately or else you’ll end up with a crooked towel bar.


Later in the day, I worked on finding us a plan B spot since Horsetooth Campground near Fort Collins was closed due to the fires. Finding an alternative spot certainly had its challenges today. Many of the campgrounds we liked were closed for the season, and there aren’t a lot of choices in terms of hookup sites. One of the spots we thought would be great to stay at was Leadville since it was centrally located to many sites we wanted to see. Nothing available. So we went out a little further and after a few hours of research, finally found an RV Park/Campground in Buena Vista, CO called Snowy Peaks RV Park. It got good enough reviews and had 4 sites left with full hookups. We’re in. That was a little stressful being that we had nowhere to stay tomorrow through Sunday.


Now for some Cornhole. And might I add, I won my first game against my husband on this whole trip. Maybe this will be a new trend. I don’t think Jeff ever has his bags OFF the board. He’s got exceptional aim. We played two games and he wants me to stress to you all, that he did win the other game. So a game a piece!


Now that I’m basically in “maintenance” mode with the website, I can start another project. I have 2 cross-stitch projects that I brought along with me on this road trip. One I cannot divulge yet, but the other is a birth detail project for my second grandchild, Carson James. The goal is once it’s completed, it will be framed to hang in his room. I made one very similar for our first grandchild Easton and loved it so much, I had to make another one. I think I’ve set a precedent to make one for all of my future grandchildren.🤪 🥰


Enjoyed another beautiful sunset. I think Sadie found it beautiful too!
