Leaving Russell, Kansas after spending four nights. I stayed here as a layover for the weekend. I have learned, and this weekend reinforced it for me, that during the summer it is better to travel during the week because it is easier to find a place to stay during a week day than it is on a weekend.

A very good example of this occurred this weekend. A couple of young guys rented the space next to me just to camp over night. They brought their sleeping bags and just lounged around for the day watching their mini DVD player and otherwise just enjoyed being outdoors. Even though they did not have an RV they were taking up and RV space. So this has reinforced for me the importance of getting a place to stay before a weekend during the summer.

Anyway, I am leaving Russell and heading toward Denver. I don't plan to actually arrive in Denver today, though I could with one hard push. I don't like hard pushes so I plan to just get into Colorado today and look for a place to stay for the night then push into the Denver area tomorrow or the next day. I have found a couple of RV Parks using the internet near Seibert, Colorado. I think that will be a good days travel from Russell.

Once I get there I will decide my next move. I have done some research on the RV Parks around Denver and most of them appear to be in Golden, Colorado so that is where I am most likely to setup my command center (ha!, ha!). One of the names has caught my attention and I am going to take a closer look after I arrive in Seibert, Colorado. The park is called The Flying Saucer RV Park.

While I am writing this I think I should write a mini review of the RV Park I stayed in here in Russell, Kansas. I stayed at the Triple J RV Park. It is in a nice location just off the Interstate. Not too close because I heard no highway noise while there. The park is an older one that was in need of grass cutting. I suppose that is a perennial problem because the entire park is grass.  There are no cement pads. The RV Park is also located close to the city center which I found to be a really nice little city center. There is no traffic considerations and there is an Apple grocery store within a mile of the park.

I found the management (owners?) to be very pleasant and accommodating.  I do recommend you to stay there for a night or a week. However, if it is or has been raining be careful. The lots are mostly grass but there is also some soft dirt where you will park. I nearly got bogged down when parking with the rear wheels of my truck spinning in the dirt. I don't think this need be a serious problem but is one worth watching.

The only other comment I have is they advertise they are a Wifi park. That is not really the case. They only have a standard off the shelf home computer Linksys wifi router. To connect to it you have to actually pull into one of only a couple spaces close enough to their office to reach the wifi signal.  Even then it will be a very weak signal.
