Today was spent much like yesterday, getting ready for the Montana trip Sunday morning.
I spent some time on the Internet looking at Wyoming state parks and Walmarts that allow overnight parking and was amazed at how few Walmarts they are in Wyoming especially along the I-25 corridor where I will be driving.
Its kind of hard for me to plan where I'm going to stop for the night because sometimes I stop for the night... Before lunch. It just depends on how much driving I feel like doing and I seldom feel like doing more than 200 miles in a day. I used to brag about how far I could drive during the day, Now I brag about how little I drive during the day.
I think the worst part of my trip is going to be driving through Denver, and I dread it to the point where I'm going to leave at 4:30 on a Sunday morning in the off chance that there will be no one on the road except me. It's not even safe driving a car through Denver most anytime of the day, so pulling a trailer through Denver has a pucker factor right up there with Cliff diving, and an IRS audit. It's so bad I'm willing to get up at 4 o'clock in the morning, which is normally reserved for hunting or fishing, just to avoid the mayhem that occurs during the normal parts of the day.
I can't wait to see how the Andersen ultimate hitch is going to work out. Right now seeing how the hitch will pull the Arctic Fox down the road is the only thing standing in the way of me falling in love. I'm sure I will find some things about it that I don't really care for on down the road but so far it's solved most of the problems that my old hitch had so I think I can live with any peccadilloes that might show up later.
These are the safety chains for the Andersen ultimate hitch.
I'm not exactly sure what you're supposed to do with the hook end of the chains. Maybe I'm supposed to put them around the legs of the hitch.
I took them off right after taking this picture. Most states don't require them, and I'm not really sure where they go. I guess I need to do some more Internet investigating.
