Tom and Bonnie started our summer travels with a trip to NH at the end of May and a return to TX two weeks ago in our RV 7a. Last week we continued our travels with a flight out of TX to Cheyenne in our RV 10 to visit our son and family. After a great couple days visiting a grandaughter, we loaded up the RV10 and flew to Steamboat Springs to join the Sutters in their RV7a and McDonalds in their RV10 for the week.
Steamboat Springs Airport
The flight to Cheyenne last week went well with tail winds and therefore great speeds. We were VFR on top over Borger when the cloud cover ended and we made a quick descend into Borger. The RV10 performed well and ran LOP with fuel burn of 11 gph at 8500. The flight to Steamboat was more of a challenge because of the high air temperatures. It was 70 degrees at 10500 feet. At this temperature and altitude I had the RV 10 run hotter than it ever has. Hope the temps get cooler by this weekend.
Five of the crew of six.
We have been doing some hikes and exploring the area. Today we hiked to Fish Creek Falls, a 3 hour 2k ascent to the upper falls. Not bad for 6 old fogies. Both upper and lower falls were beautiful with lots of wild flowers along the way. Having a great time.

We have a ten week trip planned in our RV10. See you at Oshkosh.
