Visit with Friends – The Tumolo’s

You know what Nick Russell says – I try to keep a state between me and any relative, but I’ll drive 200 miles to have lunch with a friend.

Yesterday we drove
81 miles from Alamosa to Salida, Colorado to have lunch with our Escapee friends, Bobbie and Sal Tumolo. They drove 25 miles down from Buena Vista.  It’s been two years since we’ve seen them and it was great to catch up on their travels to Alaska and all their workamping jobs.

Bobbie and Sal are on their way to Utah to work at a ski lodge for the winter….yes, that means snow and really cold weather working outside.  But they love to ski and so it is a good gig for them.

We drove through some very pretty scenery around Salida. There had been recent snows so the mountains were blanketed in white.

It was so very nice to spend a few hours with Bobbie and Sal.  We shared stories of workamping and the need to work to enjoy this lifestyle. We laughed so much I’m sure it added years to our life span.

Today we are off to a Corp of Engineer (COE) park outside of Santa Fe.  The Mossman’s are staying there for another week so we want to go and spend this week with them before they head north.

Remember, you are loved.

  2. That's a lot of snow on those mountains, Bobbie! Gorgeous but pretty cold up there, I'll bet. When do you head up the mountain? BTW, also loved your Blog on.....'remember, you are loved! And.......YOU ARE! Thanks for always sharing your smile and vitality and love. Hugs, J&C
