There is a possibility that one "branch" of the Cord Convoy will be traveling east on Highway 34 from Estes Park CO. We will pass thru Loveland, Greeley, and Fort Morgan as you probably will too. Somewhere around Wray CO we will drop south to 36 then proceed east to meet up with the Rocky Mountain Trail in Smith Center KS.

Your experiences in this area will be doubly interesting now.

It's a new Auburn ad: "Somewhere South of Laramie..."

Even though the weather forecast was for rain, we began the day with the top down. The scene has changed, now it is all farming. The land is flat, the sky is clear with just a few cotton clouds are dotting it.
We went past this huge feeder cattle operation and returned to take pictures and stop at the office to ask about it. They have eleven places over multiple states. The first one that we passed, near Greeley, had over 96,000 feeder cattle. Their feed lots average 75,000 feeder cattle each. They employ 600 people, 50 in this place in the feed lots alone. There were several other feed lots that we passed owned by different companies, however they were not as large. Around Yuma, we passed a second feed lot owned by this same company. If the cattle were not enough, they have oil wells as well.
There are large crop farms with huge irrigation systems, and also, several huge dairy farms.

These are old pumping and cooling units for natural gas.

We watched two planes crop dusting, and snapped their picture.

After lunch, the temperature was warming up. We stopped for ice cream and changed our clothes. Late afternoon, the clouds began to look threatening. We were able to drive to a hotel and remained dry. We put the top up for the night because they are forecasting a storm.

Car on a signpost

A tractor and implements dealership in every small town big enough to have a gas station

Blackie in Auburn, NB

Blackie in Iowa
I woke up early and peaked outside to see how Blackie was doing. It had rained and the cover was down on the ground. Not a great way to start the day!
Our angel is still watching over us. We were able to shimmy right through the storms without getting wet yet again.
Tonight, we are at Red Oak, Iowa. We had dinner with Jonathan Richards. It was great to see him again and kick tires.
