Make sure to bring at least 25ft of sewer hose. This row I'm in had all the hook ups at the front of the site. It's a long way from the back of the trailer. Ran in to this type of setup 3 times this trip and this time I had to connect 2 to reach.

If you have never been to Harold Warp's Pioneer Village in Minden, Nebraska and you have the time you could spend the night there and tour the Village. They have a campground with 135 sites and you can walk from the campground to their restaurant and village. You can easily spend most of a day at the village seeing everything. Minden is probably about a halfway point on your journey depending on where in Missouri you live. Also Minden is on NE34 so you can just follow it on to Colorado. I've included a link to Pioneer Village if you are interested.

Pioneer Village

Estes Park trip coming up

Had a few locals tell me that US36 east of Estes is still pretty torn up from the flooding with long delays for blasting. Rt 7 and US 34 are in good shape. I've been on both since arriving. I was only on rt7 from 72 to 36 so I don't know what it is like to Lyons.

I'm a CO gal and I'm so glad you are all back up in that area. It was really flooded out and devastated. I've been wondering how they recovered up there. Glad to hear that the campgrounds are back up and running. Enjoy Estes park, it's beautiful and plenty of places to eat and explore . Really recommend the horse guided tours if you or your kids like horses. It's just a great way to see that area..

Lyons is like "gone"...based on my best friend whose Aunt had a home there. I am not sure if people chose to rebuild but your information is correct and it's really sad because that was one of the most beautiful and quaint little towns in my opinion. Good to avoid that area..

Was in Lyons today. Open for business! Didn't look bad at all but 36 from about 10 miles east of Estes to just about Lyons was a mess with long delays.

I'm super glad to hear this. I know a lot of residents didn't rebuild personal homes, but I loved that town. I'm glad it's back up and running. It's so quaint and cute to drive through from my direction. Thanks for posting this. Will probably be some time before that hwy is back to par, but that's so good to hear! We have had a rough few years with fires in my neighborhood and flooding up there due to fires all over. Glad people still want to come here!
