Denver Colorado Trip

Wow just got home and what a trip. I will say this nothing went as planned. Starting off we got to Iola, Kansas and the top tie rod went out. There was no doubting it was completely gone. Changed them both right in Autozone’s parking lot. What a great guy they have working for them.  Then we get trucking down the road and get a ways out. All the sudden we start hearing a HORRIBLE noise. Pull over at the first truck stop we see. Jack up the truck and there is NO doubt the wheel bearing is out. Of course this is a Sunday in the middle of nowhere. We stay at the motel across from the truck stop and eat elk and bison jerky which was really good. Then get up the next morning the local parts store has the part in stock YIPPPY! I call a local shop he says he can put it on for around $100 oh yeah now we are talking. He gets us right in gets it done and then…… well the bushing in the control arm is out let me re-phrase that GONE! No one has the bushing but he thinks it will make it. Drive to Denver no problems. I go ahead and buy the control arm in Denver just so I will have it. I am not sure which part took out all the others but basically the whole front suspension system of the drivers side of my truck was gone. Picked up the car from a great couple. This car had been in his family since at least the 40’s it really was a shame to see him sell it. There is not much too it but someday it will be awesome. Decided since I was in Denver and pot was legal I would try it. Let’s just say that the shops out there were not what I was expecting at all. Super nice and clean with awesome staff. I got a little of this and that. I am unlucky when it comes to weed I guess cuz while it did some nice things for me like reduce my general level of anxiety and give me a boost of energy. I did not in anyway get high off of it. Even the guy I bought the car from was like be careful with the xyz one (I forget its name) it did NOTHING for me. I was glad that I got to try it though. I will never be an addict. I dont think I could ever be an addict to anything to be honest. We tried some of the edibles they had great flavor better chocolate then any candy bar I have had lately but again nothing like what people talk about. I am home. I doubt I turn anything on tonight. I am just exhausted. I will be back on tomorrow with a short break for Thanksgiving lunch. Hope everyone is having a great holiday. Skip the crowds and spend some time with me. I dont do black friday or any other major shopping day for that matter. 

Kisses
