Limon, CO

July 18 - 20

Someone might not think that traveling to Limon in the middle of summer would be a very good idea, but the trip worked out just fine. Temperatures were not too hot, and the Aspen Leaves Chapter had access to the air conditioned meeting room.

The trip was interesting as we shared the RV park with a traveling "combine group". They were in the area harvesting winter wheat and brought all of their possessions with them, it seemed. Lots of farm vehicles and kids.

Chapter members enjoyed a weekend of both indoor and outdoor games and lots of good home cooked meals.

Arrowhead Point RV Park

Buena Vista, CO


This site, in the upper Arkansas Valley region is certainly one of the most beautiful in the state. Located near the contenental divide, the area has an unending supply of scenic beauty.

The only glitch for this trip was the regular rain the washed out the Saturday morning breakfast that had been planned by the park owners. As always, chapter members came up with a contingency plan and no one went hungry.



Rain, rain, rain

Strasburg, CO
October 3 - 5


Our final camping trip for the year was held at a traditional park, the Strasburg KOA. Each year seems different from the previous years, and 2008 was no exception. The fall colors were quite late this year and so we were not treated to the explosion of yellows and oranges as is usually the case.

We had a big turn out as usual for the last camp out and everyone had a great time.

It is a little sad to winterize the vehicles for 2008 but most were content in the knowledge that the 2009 camp season is only 5 months away.

Our November luncheon was held at a longtime favorite site, The Old Neighborhood Restaurant. The food was good as always and we had a good number of people attending with 14 of our 19 rigs represented.

The weather held out nice for us, an unusual thing in November. This is usually the month that we get a good taste of the winter to come.

White Fence Farms

Christmas Dinner



White Fence Farms is a beautiful location to hold our annual Christmas dinner. There is a lot to see at the facility, the rooms and tables are very nice and the service is very good.

December 7, 2008

It is only proper that on this date we recognize and honor our countrie's veterans. Ron and Sheryl did a terrific job of organizing and presenting a special tribute to U. S. veterans. Those Asppen Leaves members who are also vets were recognized with a special gift.

Ron continued the presentation with a short speech honoring vets and the Sheryl read a special poem.

Great Job Ron and Sheryl!
