Day 127: Scottsbluff, NE > Denver, CO

Woke up, sipped on some coffee, and got on our way. Eager to get into Colorado, we put miles behind us and were to Fort Collins by noon. I went straight to the dispensary and John went straight to bed. We relaxed for a few hours in the park – drained from our epic adventure across the Midwest. When John awoke, he had work to do on this website and hunkered down at the Harbinger coffee shop.

Before I left, a couple next to me engaged in conversation about my travels. They were vanlife hopefuls, and we chatted about the joys of our journey. Two days later, they called to tell me they had decided to sell all their stuff and make the move into a van. I love knowing that we’re inspiring others to hit the road. When John finished his work, we cruised down to Denver where Nick Amoroso and his wife Jillian invited us to watch a movie on their comfy couch. We flopped into the cushions with relief, and stayed through 1.5 movies. We slept outside their house in our cozy van.
