Freya all loaded Saturday night, all I had to do was back the Ridgeline up to the trailer in the garage and hook up. On the road at 0545, next stop Alamosa CO. It was snowing lightly in Spearfish when I departed but once South of the Black Hills in Wyoming it was fine. Sunrise South of Lusk. The big snow here last week still has some snow on the ground in Southern WY and Northern Colorado. Once South of Denver the Rockies were beautiful and the traffic was light heading South. All was going really well, making great time and 20 mpg while towing as I approached Salida CO. Then........ Ridgeline 1 Deer 0! No injuries to me, no airbag deployment, my friend Kip drove up from Alamosa and retrieved Freya, the trailer, and me. I am recovering from the stress with the aid of Jamesons and fresh Peanut Butter Cookies. Heading South in the morning, may ride, may have to trailer to Santa Fe due to predicted snow in the passes. We will make the ride/trailer call in the morning.
