Travel to Meet Friends

Fulltime RVers think nothing of traveling 200 miles or three hour drive to meet another fulltimer friend for lunch….it is considered “do-able”.  We have done it many times with fellow fulltimers who were traveling near us…right Tumolo’s?

We made arrangements to meet the Two Lindas  while they were in Breckenridge.  Saturday at Silverthorne’s Target was the meeting place – about a half hour drive for them and hour and a half for us.  Then we got a call from Heinz that he and his wife, Angela, were in Wheatridge up from Alamosa and wanted to come see us.  Come on over to Silverthorne and meet The Lindas.


When we walked into Target we saw Heinz and Angela walking down the main aisle.  I had to take a photo because every other photo I have of them in the last six years have ALL been taken sitting on our couch in our rig.  So here they are in a different setting.

Soon The Lindas arrived also and we took two vehicles and drove through Dillon and onto Frisco.  What a pretty, pretty drive.  The views of the mountains were stunning!!!


On the way to Frisco we stopped at Dillon Lake to take of photo of us all.  I think it came out real nice.



Frisco is a cute little town. Yes, it is “touristy” but it is subtle and in good taste.

We all walked around town and ducked in and out of shops to check out their wares.

The Lindas had already scouted out a place to eat and decided on The Lost Cajun.  That was perfect for us as we love Cajun food and were missing Betty’s RV Park in Abbeville, Louisiana, and the music jam sessions of Touchet’s and the Museum CafĂ©.


Oh, we had a good time!!! The place plays Zydeco and Cajun music…the walls are covered with Cajun themed paintings and photos of Louisiana.



The restaurant provides a sample tray with small cups with some of their menu items…red beans, crawfish etoufee, seafood gumbo, etc.  It is a good idea to familiarize folks with Cajun food.



CIMG2934After we ordered an employee came around and “baptised” us by hanging Mardi Gras beads around our necks.






They also passed out funny hats, which looked the best on Heinz.






Sorry that I have been so neglectful in posting photos of food….which I know you all love to see…maybe not….I know Jim has been relieved that he can actually eat his food when it is served and not have to wait while I snap pictures….but he had to wait this time.

The Lindas and Angela had the shrimp and catfish basket

Of course we had to have beignets.  In the photo you can hardly see the beignets with all the powdered sugar on top.  They were sure good!!!

Later we walked a around the historic museum park with restored cabins and a jail.

Later we drove to Breckenridge to visit Tiger Run RV Resort where The Lindas are staying and working….they work for AGS/TXAD selling advertising for the map pamphlets you get at RV parks….very successfully I might add.  But, hay, it is time to “go to work” so I’ll write about that next time.

Oh, you can read The Lindas account of our visit together at the end of their blog post “ Weekends Are for Friends and Fun”.

Remember, you are loved.
