Come join my family and I on our many adventures and follow Robin on her weight loss journey. I post tutorials and reviews on various subjects such as Premier Pro, the GoPro, Hotel Reviews, etc. You will also find covers that I have made using my Tyros 4, as well as original compositions.

The Johnny O Show


On the 4th day of our trip, Jay, Candace and their family headed for home, and so it was just myself, Robin and Britty left to enjoy our last full day in South Dakota.
We started the day by visiting Bear Country USA, recommended to us by Cory and Tiana. ;-) At first we weren't sure how much we'd enjoy it, especially Robin with her poor vision, but we ended up loving it. Definitely a place to check out if you would like to see some real live teddy bears. :-)
Afterwards we headed to hike the Devils Bathtub in Spearfish Canyon, Spearfish Canyon (Lead, SD). It was a gorgeous hike. A little tough, but beautiful.
Then on our way to Keystone, we stopped and saw Dinosaur Park in Rapid City, and I got Britty an awesome mug. :-) Then we did some shopping once we got to Keystone, and ate at the poorly reviewed Guadalajara's Mexican Restaurants - the food was good, the service was not.
Overall, we'd definitely like to visit South Dakota again. It was an absolute wonder. :-D

Ep. #597 Our 12 Week Adventure | Day 4: Bear Country USA & Devil's Bathtub

Very early morning of day 24, we arrive in Salt Lake City. For our first stay at a flying J Truck Stop. I had a chance to test the WiFi Ranger off the Flying J wifi - only 50 ft away - once again, an epic fail. However, I found Verizon LTE seems to work very well in Salt Lake City, so at least there was that. We of course visit Robin's beloved fast food chain El Pollo Loco. Afterwards, we go
On the 23rd day of our trip, it's finally time to say goodbye to my family. With all the repairs finished, and now almost a week longer then expected in Delta because of it, we have to skip going north toward Yellowstone, as very bad weather had already set in there. We start the day with our traditional goodbye breakfast at Starvin Arvin's, and then before heading out we go back to my parent's
We used our 22nd day to take our typical drive up the beautiful Grand Mesa. Many fond memories I have of riding my bike to the very top of the Mesa from Delta, CO. I always enjoy visiting it every time we're in Western Colorado. And it was absolutely breathtaking this year, being there during fall, when all the colors are changing. Afterwards, we play Uno with GIANT cards (so that Robin can see
Since Robin has never been, we decided to spend our 21st day at the Colorado National Monument with my parents. It's an absolutely gorgeous area near Grand Junction, CO. And it's always a sight to behold. After spending the day there, we ate at Texas Roadhouse, and then headed back to Delta. I also discuss some of the organizing we've done, as well as some little upgrades/repairs we've completed
On the 20th day of our trip, I'm finally getting my propane tanks filled for the very first time, and I explain why I'm sticking with the 20 lbs tanks and not getting bigger ones. I also talk about why I regret getting a single axle camper. More goodies came in the mail today including an Insignia Ice maker, which we absolutely love. And I walk through all the other small things we've done to
Nothing but an upgrade to the trailer on day 19 - no repairs. YEAH! I worked on getting the water tank heater pads installed. I also discovered why my air conditioner was freezing up even when it's been really hot outside: dirty filters. So, if you're having this problem, the solution is simple: clean the filters. We then finish the day by teaching my mom how to play Hearts, and talk about Robin's
Finally, the 18th day of our trip doesn't involve working on the camper. I talk about a few of the local businesses that I appreciate in Delta, Colorado, like Clubb's and Ace Hardware. We also enjoy another Home Chef meal - Nashville hot chicken tacos - with my family.

The best part of the 17th day was getting some great pizza for dinner, from my favorite pizza place in Delta, Daveto's. :-) But for the not so fun stuff of the day, I finished putting the final touches on the weBoost install. I also made a modification to the access panel that is below the bed. I then discover the core issue with Rockwood's camper, is that they don't know how to use power tools.
On the 16th day, I finally start seeing results from the weBoost in the very early morning. I've come to the conclusion that Verizon has bandwidth issues in Delta, CO, that no amount of signal strength will resolve. But I have verified enough at this point that the weBoost does actually help, I just will still need to continue working out a final solution. I go ahead and start the mounting
Before departing on our adventure, I ordered a food box from Home Chef to be delivered to my mom's house in Delta. So on the night of day 15, we finally got around to preparing a meal: the beef mexi-mac and cheese skillet. I helped a little bit, but I mostly there for moral support. :-) I tell the story about what happened to Lulu, and why we had to give her a new funky haircut. I also find out
The 15th day of our trip was a very long day, full of upgrades and repairs... I ordered a weBoost cell signal booster, which arrived in the mail, as well as the replacement toilet from Dometic. Getting the toilet changed out is a pretty straight forward and simple process, however I ran into a lot of frustration with the weBoost. I worked way past midnight trying to get things resolved, but I
Just a note: the water miser should only be used if NOT connected to city water. On day 14 of our trip, I discover how you can use the shower water miser as a fresh water tank heater. I also start getting the wires ran for the tank heaters, and get the heater pads ordered from Amazon. After I take care of that, we go to the Stoney Mesa Winery, which has a fantastic selection of delicious wines. I
Our 13th day of the trip was our second day spent in Delta - and I focus on taking care of some important things regarding our Rockwood travel trailer. I made a phone call to Dometic to get some information on our toilet; we decided to purchase a better model from them, that should arrive before we leave Delta. It'll just be struggle to deal with the smell until then... Then I move on to mounting
On our way to Delta, we traveled up and over the mountainous Monarch Pass on the 12th day of our trek. I was very worried about how our 2018 Honda Pilot would do hauling our Rockwood Geo Pro 19FBS through the mountains. But it handled like a dream - no problems whatsoever! I'm confident there isn't anything our Pilot can't handle. ;-) I also review some new items I purchased for the camper:
The 11th day of our trip we say goodbye to Teresa & Rocky and depart from Woodland Park and take the scenic way to the Royal Gorge in Cañon City. I wanted to test out what driving through the mountains would be like, and it turned out much better than I anticipated. While we had a few gripes with the Royal Gorge, - like the Plaza Theater, the Bridge View BBQ was out of food, their shaved ice was
Our 10th day on our journey, we're still with Rocky and Teresa, and we spend the day exploring the quaint Manitou Springs. It was a lot of fun perusing all the shops and enjoying the sights. And we had a great dinner at The Loop. And if you're visiting the magnificent Garden of the Gods, stop in Manitou Springs as well. :-) Additionally, I discovered the issue with the smell in the camper's
