The Best Laid Plans!

After leaving our friends home in Evergreen, CO, we pulled up to our prepaid campsite north of Blackhawk, CO.  Upon arrival, we discovered two problems; no Verizon service (despite what the Verizon coverage map shows) and no fresh water connection to fill our tank, which was empty.  The Verizon coverage was the big issue, I need cell phone and internet access (through Verizon) to manage my internet business.  So, what to do?

After checking out another campground in the area and finding no cell service there either, we decided to return to Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood, CO.   The camp hosts were happy to see us return and gave us a discounted rate of $15 per night for 3 nights.   I also got $6 refunded from for the site above Blackhawk.

So this is a short blog and no pictures.  We leave tomorrow (16th) for Cheyenne, WY where I have work assignments to complete.  The choices in Cheyenne are limited, so we will be in an expensive ($35 per night) campground, but with full hookups and a laundry for two nights.

Thanks for stopping by.

OUCH, I guess ya gotta pay the price from time to time huh? What kind of internet business do you have? I've been out of touch with most everyone lately. Not much goes on in mechanic shops!

Great that you have something you can do from the road. I will be consulting with my company from the road after I retire, so having good cell/internet reception will be necessary, at least for the short term.
