Some of you will remember that I have been traveling for the past 20 some days. We have arrived within some 75 miles of our destination. We will go up there today in the car to check everything out. If it's o.k. then we pull the trailer up there on Thursday. The location is a very remote mountian top private campground at 8,500 ft. elevation. There is only one way up there and I am a nervous wreck just thinking about that route! It is a *very* narrow mountain road. (Think snake - lots of switchbacks & hairpin turns while climbing some 6,000 ft.) Most of it isn't too bad but there is a section 1 mile long that is only one lane for all traffic without any kind of guardrails. We will have only one chance to make it around what is called "peek-a-boo' corner (a to-the-right hairpin turn)! I will have to *walk ahead and stop any traffic* comming down so Terry (my DH) can get around the corner with our 33 ft. 5th wheel trailer. If he doesn't get over far enough he can wipe out the trailer against the mtn and if he gets over too far go over the side - an appx 2,000 ft drop! This is at about 6,000 ft on an up-grade. I think you can understand why I'm asking that you (and anyone you can get) pray for us especially on Thursday.

You can hold off on the prayers until next week. We haven't exactly decided what day it will be but there will not be any water up there until at least *next* Thursday. We could survive w/o elec but not w/o water for 8-10 days.
I hope to get a pic posted of this road soon.

Kakeladi, I'll be praying for you.

I have to ask, where are you headed? Sorry, but I haven't seen the other posts about your trip. My hubby and I lived and traveled in a motorhome for 2 years and traveled all over the country, 43 states, including Alaska. We have a 33 ft. motorhome and it would freak me out to travel you this road you are describing. I didn't like going into the east entrance to Yellowstond because of the narrow road and the guard rail was a rock wall about 1 ft. high. Yeah, that will stop me. icon_rolleyes.gif

Take care! Enjoy your trip!

Prayers for you!

This sounds just like Gold Camp Road that I believe was in Colorado that we accidentally ended up on when I was a kid.
