Left Warren AFB early morning for long drive to Rock Springs via IH 80.
This is not the most scenic part of Wyoming. Goes through somewhat desolate country. Quite frankly not sure how anything can survive. The route passes through Laramie and Rawlins. Enroute we stopped at the Lincoln Memorial at exit 323. Strongly suggest you make this stop and visit the memorial and the visitor center. This is our 3rd time to travel this route.

We arrived at the KOA for 3 nights before heading to HIll AFB in Ogden,UT. Staff very welcoming and the park seemed almost full. Got a nice pull thru site close to laundry and dog park. The park is gravel with a view of the White Mountain just off IH 80 exit 99 and convenient to Rock Springs shopping. I like that the sites are opposite pull thru as this means door to door which gives a more friendly access to your neighbor. We are in site 33.

We have not visited any forts since leaving Illinois as our route back to Oregon is one we have taken before. This is longest John has gone without visiting forts, but has given him time to catch up with his site. Plus it has meant more relax time for us.
Gas has gone up once again to $3.75 and we expect it to be over $4.00 before getting to Oregon.
