We started our trip on thee 20th of August.  Mr Wonderful had called and made an reservation at the National Park in Estes Park, CO.  He was assured that they had everything we desired.  I might add that he was talking to a mentally challenged person.  We arrived late and found our site, yes we could pull our 36 5er in the spot that was along the road, no hookups and could not open slides, there was an over hanging Aspen tree that proved to be a challenge.  We spent the night and left in the morning.  No reason to complain for just $10.
Found a site right out of the park called Marys Lake. Cost $30.  Were able to use the satellite but not the WiFi.  No fish in lake.  We drove the Trail Ridge Road over to Grand Lakes, nice drive.  Able to use the WiFi in town so caught up on emails.  Wild life---26 Elk and two Moose.
Left there and went to Thermopolis, WY.  We have some friends that have an RV park, Waltz around Wy.  Their last name is Waltz.  They have WiFi but our satellite didn't work but didn't matter because we were busy the whole time we were there.  Mr. Wonderful fished a lot in The Big Horn, were gifted with many large fish.  There are some nice Hot Springs that is a must do.  Besides the one you have to pay for they also have a state one that is free for 20 min at a time.
We drove 20 min out of town to the Petroglyphs  Our friends make shirts from the red dirt from around there, they silk screened some of the drawings from the Petroglyphs.  They also have a Mexican restaurant called Las Fuentes, very good food.  Also run a gallery called Jenny's on Broadway.  They are getting ready to open an upscale steak and seafood place at the golf course called Red
Cliffs.  The golf course is a nine hole and enjoyable to play.  Wildlife---many Buffalo, black Weasel, one
Antelope and lots of Trout.
While we were there we noticed a water leak under the entertainment center.  The shower is behind  that in the bedroom.
Called Beaudry RV where we bought the rig and they referred us to Tour of America RV Center in Billings Montana.  They could get us in next day at 1:30, took us a little longer than expected and arrived at 3:30, we had called and let them know we were going to be late.  They had it fixed in two hours.  Spent the night in their lot and got to use our new generators.  Had to use both of the Honda's to be able to run the microwave/convection oven.  Went out to dinner and a movie.
We are now in Great Falls Montana at Malmstrom AFB in the RV park.  Nice and well kept.  Going to explore the area.
