Diane, Andy, Elizabeth, and Clear Creek, Golden Colorado

After the RVSEF conference in Colorado Springs, we planned to visit our friends Diane and Andy in the Denver area.  We were thinking of staying in the inexpensive Elks Lodge, or Fairgrounds, but we also knew of a really nice little campground in Golden called Clear Creek.  We’ve spent a lot of money in the last few weeks, with not much coming in – so we didn’t feel like we could splurge on a real campground. 
But, lack of money has never stopped us before!  So, when Diane and Andy mentioned how close Clear Creek was to their home, we said, “What the Heck!”  And, I’m so glad we did.  It is just beautiful.  We paid for a couple of nights, then they let us move to a space right next to the creek, and we just didn’t want to leave at all.  There’s pretty good Wi-Fi here, and a 4bar 4G Verizon signal.  When we realized that the upcoming weekend is Memorial Day, we extended our reservation for 10 more days!  This is what our lifestyle is all about!  We're working all the time (lots of new videos on our website) - but we can do it in beautiful places, and be flexible in our schedule.

Check out this little video and I think you’ll agree we made a good choice.

The primary reason we just had to visit is that Diane and Andy now have a 2 1/2 year old daughter, Elizabeth.  The last time we saw them, Diane was still pregnant!  So, they came by the RV park and brought her.  They were fulltime RVers for a couple of years themselves.  I think they’ve been planting seeds with their daughter!

Clear Creek is definitely a great campground. We stayed once and got snowed on, but we did not mind.

We were looking online at that campground but were scared off a bit as they apparently don't take reservations and we were afraid just to show up and not get a space. But we are pleased with the park we found in Englewood.

Nothing like the sound of a babbling brook or river to promote good sleep!
