Oct 18, 2013 - Wyoming, Buffalo

10/18 We wake up in Sturgis SD with wind driven snow and about 28 degress. Not perfect weather to pack up and get going but that is what we do anyway. Headed west to Wyoming and Devils Tower National monument. Pretty ride up. Inside the park and before we get to the visitors center we go through a huge praire dog (city?) hundreds of holes over a large area and you could see probably over a hundred over the area at the same time. Intresting fact every park has a coin the one for devils tower has the tower on one side and 2 praire dogs on...

Aug 21, 2013 - South Dakota to Buffalo,Wyoming

In this entry we have traveled from Custer State Park in South Dakota to Buffalo, WY. The drive on 16W was serene with very well kept road and little to no traffic. I must say that the roads we've driven since leaving home, have been great. Usually, when we stop at night, everything falls on me when I open the kitchen cabinet. That hasn't happened once since we hit upstate NY. I should clarify that the serene drive happened after we unexpectedly hit a stretch of very curvy road that was constantly climbing, but it was only for about 5...

Aug 13, 2013 - Buffalo Bill Center/Shell Canyon

Today we are visiting the Buffalo Bill Museum and then driving through Shell Canyon on the way to Buffalo, WY. The Buffalo Bill Museum consisted of 6 different sections and of those we only got see 2, those being The Buffalo Bill and Plains Indian Museums. Wish we had more time to see the other sections but there is only so much you can see in 2 hrs. I had a $2.00 banana at the cafe. Just a little over priced I think! We did shopping in Cody and had lunch at Irma's Grill. It was a buffet and I had Buffalo brisket, mashed potatoes, baked...

Judy's Travels

Aug 13, 2013 - Buffalo Bill Museum

Be patient...trouble with WIFI last couple days. Visited Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, WY. Wonderful and enjoyed the history. Just not enough time to see all. At the snack counter I got a coke zero in a metal bottle, very unique. Judy had a 2.00 bananna.Ha Lunch at Irma's Hotel (she was Buffalo Bill daughter). We had the buffet with Bison Brisket, a little dry but good. Really liked the chairs we sat in as the back was springy and very comfortable. Loved the the town Cody, would like to have stayed longer. Back on road, we hit construction...

Jul 15, 2013 - Buffalo, Wyoming

We really enjoyed our week in Buffalo, Wyoming. The downtown area has some beautiful sculptures and murals. The historic Occidental Hotel was built in 1880 and restored in 2008. The Old West Saloon has the original tin ceilings and mahogany and glass bar, complete with bullet holes. We took a motorcycle ride up to Granite Pass and took some fun pictures on the way home.

Jul 8, 2013 - Deer Park Camp-ground

Ah the sight of mountains and snow and a definite coolness in the air, must be getting closer to home. Leisurely drive out of S Dakota and into Wyoming. Lots of fences cattle oil pumps and rolling hills. Even the hum of the tires sounds like music to the ears. Into a nice campground that had an ice cream social at 7 but no happy hour don't know if I like that or not lol. Onto Montana and big sky country tomorrow. Gas is still 3.33 so not bad hope it stays that way until the border. Tks for cutting the grass John. Bout it for now folks take...

Jun 17, 2013 - Buffalo, Wy

June 17, 2013 Buffalo, Wy We got a late start today (11 am) but since it was a short 110 miles to Buffalo there was no need to head out at our normal time. Ross called Redbay, Al (Tiffin MH) to find out how to remove the floor panel to gain access to the engine compartment. His Engine monitoring system said the crankcase ventilation filter needed to be replaced. He picked up a filter when we arrived in Casper on Saturday but had to wait until today (Monday) to contact Redbay. Today’s drive was about the same as the drive from Rawlins to...

Jun 16, 2013 - Moving North to Buffalo, Wyoming

We left our RV park near Fort Laramie and drove to Buffalo to spend the next two weeks. We are delighted with the park here. Deer Park has deer and turkey that wander around as if they own the place; our site is large and has good shade too. We are in the monthly section next to my FB RV friends, Christine and Adam Koeppel, who are workkampers here. It is nice to meet someone “face to face” that I had become friends with on FB. Chris helped me make the reservations here and I can tell we are going to become real friends. On Sunday morning,...

Jun 10, 2013 - Buffalo, WY

Yesterday we left Ellsworth AFB, SD and drove along I90 to Buffalo, WY. It was an easy drive. Started out with prairies, fields of cattle and ranches. At Gilette WY there was a huge area where they appeared to be strip mining coal with a conveyer-belt like thing carrying the coal to the other side of I90 where there was a huge plant or something. There were 2 long trains filled with coal cars leaving the area. Gilette is the "Energy Capitol of the Nation". It is a commercial hub for oil, gas and coal. The County, Campbell, is the 6th...

Jun 6, 2013 - Custer State Park, SD to Buffalo WY

Last night we had a very good dinner at the Game Lodge. The menu was quite imaginative for a small lodge that catered to the large bus tours . Bob started with a cheese and salmon board followed by a mixed green salad with candied walnuts, dried cherries and goat cheese. As an entrée he had buffalo filet with a potato cake. I had the mixed green salad as well with a rib eye served on sweet potato hash. 2006 Dashe zinfandel. All was very tasty. On the walk back to camp we saw 3 buffalo meander across the camp meadow, cross the road and into...

May 31, 2013 - Rapid City, SD, Buffalo Wy.

Tuesday, May 28, 2013, we left Mitchell SD about 9:15 and arrived at Rapid City SD about 1:25. It was an uneventful trip through some pretty country. We are all set up and a relaxing. The weather here is real nice for now. They are predicting possible rain tonight. Wednesday May 29, 2013, it did rain some last night but not real hard. It was 42 degrees when I got up this morning. Not my favorite kind of weather. Today was real sunny and the temperature got up to 74 degrees. We spent about 3 hours touring Bear Country USA just south of...
