Escape Pod Log 14 – Council Bluffs, IA

Our first full day of our honeymoon adventure. We made it to Council Bluffs, IA and spent the night camped out in the back lot of the Camping World here.  I think you can safely call it camping actually.  Unlike overnight parking at a Wal-Mart here you could safely put out your grill, slide outs if you have them, hang out and enjoy the evening if you really wanted to.  We were the only ones here and the security patrol which came around every hour was very nice and not very concerned about what we were doing just that we were safe while we were here.  That was actually a really nice addition.

Put together my new charcoal grill we got as a wedding gift from my brother`s family and grilled up a couple of really good steaks we found on sale at a Target on our way through St. Paul, MN. Topped that off with an excellent salad and some mashed potatoes my beautiful bride made us. All in all it was pretty much a perfect meal.

Now it is 6:30am on the 2nd of June and we are packing up and getting ready to roll out on our way towards Denver. Weather looks like it is going to be wonderful all day today but might be seeing rain the rest of the week. We are discussing driving straight through Colorado and going right to Utah to avoid the rain but we will see what happens. We are not doing anything at all until I finish my first few cups of coffee though that is for sure. Why rush, I am on vacation.
