I have to assume that, as you come to this Post, you have read Parts 1 and 2 above. If so, you know today is D-Day and I sit in Julesburg, Colorado.
However, this Post is about Crook, Colorado. It is not about Julesburg.
I devised the below ‘maps’ to show you where Crook, Colorado, is located.
I painted a toothpick black and used it as a pointer-arrow. Do you see poor little Crook, Colorado, way up in the Northeast corner of Colorado. Don’t sweat the fact the below photo is somewhat blurred, I took two more photos that you can see further below.
Crook and Julesburg to its (East) right.
Then I saw a Colorado Welcome Center Map.
Enough with the maps Captain!
I pulled into Crook late last night at a little past 10pm.
After 10pm is a bad time to find a hotel / motel room. The cost of my stay here in Crook, Colorado, fifty nine dollars and fifty two cents ($59.52) was just a tad pricey, but, I did get some perks that went with it.
For my $59.52 I got :
$51.20 .. 21.342 Gallons of gasoline for Black Beauty.
$ 2.60 .. 2 each, 1 litre bottles of cold, lemon-lime Gatorade.
$ 2.50 .. 2 each, 1 litre bottles of Aquafina drinking water.
$ 3.22 .. 1 each, gigantic, exotic, specially seasoned hot dog.
Some very nice, fun entertainment.

Water and Gatorade.
Pure Joy and Pure Fun.
“Dad! I feel so sad. Where did the children go Dad?”
Sleep? Where did I sleep?
I slept for free. No cost for sleeping last night. I have a very comfortable, twin-size, mattress in the back of Black Beauty. I sleep very well when I am on the road and staying in truck stops.
Breakfast? In bed so to speak.
And now? I have been here all day.
And now? I am going to drive to North Platte, Nebraska.
Where I have a ** Hotel booked and paid for with Priceline. I will stay two nights in North Platte. Patti and I will enjoy game 3 of the NBA Finals tomorrow night.
