I left the Jefferson County Fairgrounds this morning and I'm now back at my daughter's house. My trip was successful and my Yamaha WR450 is now two inches lower than it was and my wallet is considerably thinner than it used to be.
Now that I'm back I'm facing several house projects such as, picture hanging, light fixture changing, ceiling fan removal, and my personal favorite bathroom sink changing. Laying on my back under a sink was never something I looked forward to but now my bad back does not allow me to slide into a bathroom cabinet under a sink anymore so I may have to just supervise that job.
Tomorrow they're having a big party for my grandson's 2nd birthday. His birthday was actually a few days ago but Saturday was chosen as the party day. I think there is supposed to be about 40 people coming to this party which makes me wonder how someone could make that many friends in 2 years, he must be a very charismatic kid because I'm a lot older than two and I don't think I even know 40 people. Personally I don't like being around a lot of people I guess I'm more of a loner than the life of the party, so I will probably take a few pictures, eat a hamburger, and then hide in the Arctic Fox.
I took a walk around the fairgrounds this morning and took a few pictures, at least the sun is shining this morning and it doesn't look like rain.
You can see from the Google Earth photo why this is such a noisy place. Those 2 highways, 6th Avenue, and interstate 70 are a couple of the busiest roads in Denver and they stay that way all day and get worse during rush hours. But the odd thing is during the rush hours it's actually quieter because the traffic is bumper-to-bumper and everybody's going slow and its actually the speed that makes most of the noise. you can also see why I chose the fairgrounds to stay at since it's literally a 5 minute walk to RG3 suspensions.
Notice that camping world is right across the highway from me and even though I don't buy a whole lot from them because they're kind of expensive I still like to look around the store and see RV things that you don't ordinarily see for sale.

My new camping site at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds
It was an easy drive this morning to the Jefferson County Fairgrounds but it was kind of cloudy wet and chilly. A host quickly checked me in and then led me to my campsite. They have a nice facility here but the pull-through sites are very narrow so that you have to choose whether you need to put out your slide or put out your awning because you can't do both.
Now there are some other sites where you Park parallel to a grassy area and there's plenty of room there but those sites are more expensive and I'm not going to be here long enough to need the extra room.
I haven't had a chance to look around the campground yet because I've been busy getting my Yamaha WR450 into the shop and it's kind of rainy and not much fun walking around outside. But hopefully tomorrow I can look around and take a few pictures.
The tourist season is long gone now so there's plenty of room in the campground. I think they have 40 pull-through sites and there's only about 6 of us here. It is kind of noisy here, the fairground is very near the intersection of 2 major highways but thanks to the Arctic foxes good insulation, double pane windows, and the insulated drapes I put on, I can barely hear anything until I step outside.
