|Monday was much clearer than Saturday when we drove the Jeep into Steamboat Springs.|
|The uphill traffic has a passing lane.|
|There was a runaway truck ramp about halfway down the downgrade.|
|The name of the National Forest that we have been camping in.|
|This shows some of the housing that is part of the town.|
|The oncoming traffic is getting their passing lane, so we're about to reach the end of the downgrade!|
|US 40 in town - this was where the car show was on Saturday. Thankful that we could drive straight through on US 40!|
|We made use of the dump and fresh water fill in Maybell Park.|
I want to do some more experimenting with the tanks - the way that we mounted the sensors on the fresh tank it never shows 100% full on the monitor - the fresh water fill automatically cuts off at a point where there is another sensor through the side of the fresh water tank - and that point still leaves air space at the top of the tank (I'm not sure why). The percentage full on the SeaLevel shows 93-94% full (that's why Dwayne has the label next to the monitor read-out). We don't see the same anomaly on the grey and black tanks. However, it seemed to me that when I was doing laundry when we were on full hookups, when I got to 70+% full on the grey tank, it went to overfull (it overflows into the shower) more quickly than I thought it would - I thought each load of laundry took about 17% of the tank, and I had more than 20% remaining when I started the load. So... either different loads can produce different amounts of water, or I mis-read the monitor, or... something! More experimenting to be done, and when we're on full hookups is the only time I want to experiment with filling the grey and black tanks.
|The sign for the park - here Maybell is spelled "Maybelle", but this is the only place I've seen it spelled that way.|
|We took the first site in the front of the park (site 1&2), which doesn't have any sites beyond it (behind us). Our front end is probably about 20' from the next power pole, so if someone with a small rig came in, they could get to site 3&4.|
|For dinner, I made Zesty Lemon Scallion Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Kabobs... we used the outside grill...|
|They turned out really good, and enough to have leftovers too!|
|One other rig showed up in the park with us. When I first saw it, I just saw a car hauler, and then I saw a very long tractor pulling the car hauler (it was on the street, not in the park). I wasn't sure whether it was a commercial vehicle or not.|
|When it drove past us, there was a sign on the door of the tractor indicating that it was a private vehicle, not for hire, licensed as an RV. We didn't have the chance to talk to the owners, but it looked like an interesting rig!|
Re: Internet service: I had checked along the route and Verizon's coverage map indicated that they had coverage here, but they do not. Thankfully, with the cellular booster, AT&T's coverage is good.
