Current Location: Douglas KOA, Douglas, Wyoming
We pulled up stakes and got a fairly early start this morning – closer to 8:00 AM. However, we gained an hour heading west into the Mountain Time Zone. We traversed I-80 to Cheyenne, Wyoming then headed north to Douglas on I-25 before pulling into the campground here around 2:00 PM.
The drive, of course, was beautiful. Here are some pictures Val took along the way.
We checked into the park and were led to our space. This is a pretty large KOA and it got pretty high ratings online. The price was reasonable as well. We had to call to reserve last night as it is getting close to the Wyoming State Fair, which is held here in Douglas.
Just a few miles before we got off at Douglas, the truck information center informed us it was time for an oil change. As we got off at the Douglas exit, we passed a Ford dealer. Malcolm called them after we got set up at the campground, but they are booked until Saturday. Our next planned stop is in Hardin, Montana, so Malcolm called the Ford dealer there and we have an appointment at 3:00 PM tomorrow for an oil change.
Once we were settled in here at the KOA, we took a walk around the park to see all the facilities. They have a really nice pool, miniature golf, two nice playgrounds and, Malcolm’s favorite, they cater to horse owners. Several horse owners checked in with their horses over the course of the afternoon and evening, so Malcolm made it a point to visit the horses.
Here is today’s license plate hunt results – 33 states. We scored the somewhat elusive Alaska. North Dakota continues to elude us and we didn’t see any Nevada plates today.
