10/12 Hello Moab!
It was a bit chilly this morning, somewhere in the 30's. While we were out getting ready to go, we chatted with the campground host for a bit. He said something that really caught me off-guard and no, it's not political! He was speaking to Bob and said he could see that Bob was a wealthy man! Because we own an Airstream! We would never consider ourselves wealthy, just 2 people who have worked hard to achieve a long-term dream. There must be some Airstream stereotype that is going on. Really, the Airstream was way more expensive than a comparable size RV of just about any other brand. But there are so many RV's now that cost 2 to 3 times more than ours cost. They are usually bigger, but we're not proponents of "bigger is better". We found a size and a style that fits our needs, so don't jump to any conclusions about us! I hope that if you are looking for an RV for yourself, that you, too, will find the one that fits your needs, and that you have fun!
After we left the campground, we knew we had to drive through a good chunk of Salt Lake City to get to where we needed to go. Really no good way around it, so we forged our way ahead. It was not a nice drive! Very rough roads, construction, traffic, rain, twists and turns. Bob was driving (thank goodness!) and after we were clear of most of the problems we needed to stop and take a moment. Luckily, I knew just the place to stop! Corn Wagon Quilt Shop in Springville! I had heard that this shop had a good reputation, so it was on my list to visit. It was a good chance for me to browse around while Bob took a short walk. The shop actually has 2 buildings. The newer building is called the Mercantile, and offers cool and interesting gifty items for sale. Beyond the store there was a large classroom and a group of ladies were gathered to do various types of hand stitching. If only I had a couple hours I would have joined them! They also have 2 day retreat rooms to rent for groups. So, I give this shop the mark of "would go out of my way to visit again", which is the highest mark other than "I'm moving in".
We continued south with alternating rain, snow and sun! There was some beautiful scenery and fall colors when we could see it through the mist.
We left I-15 south of Provo and drove on 191 the rest of the way to Moab. We had reserved a spot for a few days at St. Dane's Campground on the south side of Moab. We were happy to arrive even though it was raining at the time! We just pulled into our site and hung out in the trailer until the weather improved. Leveling proved to be a challenge once again, but we prevailed in the end! We were treated with beautiful views of canyon walls around us. It was getting dark soon, and we just felt like staying in for supper and another episode of Centennial. When making these reservations, we thought the location of this campground on an easily accessible road was a bonus. What we didn't know was that Hwy 191 is a heavily traveled roadway for vehicles of all kinds, including big trucks, at all times of the day! My earplugs were moved out of storage and into use that night!
