Timberline in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains at the San Luis Valley. I've mentioned it before but I'm old so I'm allowed to repeat myself over and over. Sangre de Cristo is Spanish for the Blood of Christ, and the Spanish gave this mountain range that name because of the vibrant red color the mountains take on during some sunsets.
I installed the new digital thermostat in the bronco. That was very important to me because the original factory thermostat was horrendously bad, as is most of the thermostats that RVs come with, including my Arctic Fox. And my experience has been switching to a digital thermostat will improve your comfort level tremendously.
The talk around the dinner table yesterday afternoon was about snow. I just knew I wasn't going to be able to head out of here before it snowed. The snow is expected in Denver Wednesday night and Thursday morning, which doesn't mean it will actually snow, the weather is extremely difficult to predict when you're close to the mountains, but it is about that time.
Wednesday was when my family was planning on going to Glenwood Springs, Colorado, for a few days of R&R. Hopefully, they won't have to drive through the snow to get there. The snow won't last long, and in a day or so, it will be back to Fall again, but I was hoping I didn't have to see any snow before I left.
Now I've got to start figuring out exactly what I need to put in the bronco to travel with this winter. I know it's going to be more difficult to stay warm in the bronco because of the lack of any serious insulation, so I will have to take more warm clothes than I usually carry. But, of course, warm clothes are bulky, and there's not much storage room in the bronco.
I'm going to have two 5 gallon tanks of propane; one hooked up in the bronco and the other in the driver's seat floorboard, which means I'm going to be buying propane a lot more frequently than I normally do. At least the 5-gallon tanks are much easier to handle than the 10-gallon tanks in the Arctic Fox.
These sound like some interesting times ahead for me, but I enjoy the challenge, and I think my increased mobility will give me the incentive to travel more than I normally do.
Changing out a thermostat is about as simple as it gets. How simple is it? It's so simple even I can do it without electrocuting myself.... Which is pretty hard to do with DC current but I've come close.
The neighbor's house always has the first trees to completely change into their Fall colors in the whole neighborhood.
Back in my daughter's driveway. This may be the last time the Arctic Fox is hitched up to my truck for quite some time..... Depending of course on how difficult it is to live in the bronco for the winter.
