Jun 23, 2017 - Banner and Buffalo, WY

After a great night sleep we drove to Banner to Fort Phil Kearny. Built in 1866 in 4 months,to protect miners traveling to Bozeman Trail ( a whole other story). It was central in Red Cloud's War (1866-68) after negotiations from bad faith for the right of way along the trail failed. What makes this fort interesting is that this happened 10 years before Custer defeat at the little big horn and it made the conflict forgotten in history. There was a 1000-strong indian ambush attack on the men. In 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramine the Army abandoned...

Jun 3, 2017 - Buffalo WY

We made it to Buffalo WY after 3 and a half days of HARD driving by Ken! New tires thanks to Bo's in Madison GA and working turn signals thanks to NIRV in Lawrenceville GA. NIRV got us out of their facility early enough on Wednesday that we were able to get out of Atlanta and all the way to Clarksville TN before we stopped for the night. Thursday, we made it past St. Louis and Friday to Mitchell SD. The folks at the Buffalo KOA were able to find a mechanic to come out and replace a missing oil plug on a Saturday night - many thanks for...

Sep 8, 2016 - On to Wyoming

We left Custer around 9:30 this morning after spending a few minutes saying goodbye to Larry & Lee Ann. We so enjoyed spending the past week plus with them. We look forward to connecting with them on down the road. It wasn't a long trip today - 188 miles - from Custer, SD to Buffalo, WY - but it was a beautiful drive. Didn't take long to drive out of the Black Hills & onto the plains of eastern Wyoming. We were surprised at the amount of oil activity in Wyoming - some shut down but some of the pumpers were still pumping. And we passed a big...

Jul 25, 2016 - Buffalo KOA

We got an early start out of Dubois headed for Buffalo Wyoming. The forest fire smoke was very thick. Everything in the motorhome smells like we sat too close to a campfire. We eventually drove out of it by heading north and east. At Worland, Wyoming we turned east through Ten Sleep and Ten Sleep Canyon (strange names) then entered the Powder River Pass (elev. 9685 ft). That was some climb but at least it wasn't at as steep an angle of ascent. The descents were all stepped down at 8° angles. Tomorrow its off to Devils Tower, Wyoming.

Jun 17, 2016 - Buffalo, WY - Deep Park Campground

/// Deer Park Campground Buffalo, WY Friday – June 17, 2016 A Travel Day: We did not un-hitch last night so hitting the road today was with minimal effort. We departed Western Hills RV Park shortly after 8:00 am. Our route today would be north on US Hwy 287 to Muddy Gap, east on Hwy 220 to Casper and then north on I-25. The weather was clear and mild. The road conditions were some of the best we have enjoyed thus far. The traffic was light and not an issue even with me poking along at 55 mph. We encountered very few road construction...

May 26, 2016 - Day 3 travel to Buffalo, Wy

Well this is not a good day. To start with when I opened the slide on the trailer there was a loud crunch. My computer had fell off the couch while traveling and was between the slide and a wall. Long story short its trash! Then we got no satellite because of trees, and no local antenna. So no tv. Oh well we are camping!

Sep 17, 2015 - Sept 16,2015 - Twenty Sixth Stop - Buffalo, WY

Left Cody this morning and it threatened rain. Decided to continue on US 14 instead of taking US 16 down to Worland and through the Ten Sleep Canyon and then over the mountain. Sure enough, we got to the mountain o US 14 and it started to rain, but not heavy. The road up was steep and narrow with lots of turns to take at 30mph. It was not until we started down from the top that it stopped raining and the sun came out. Made it to I 90 and headed for Buffalo. Right after turning into the entrance, 3 deer walked across the road. The pictures...

Sep 17, 2015 - Buffalo, WY

We decided not to stay another night in Sheridan and left for short 37 miles (45 mins) to Buffalo, WY on I-90 E. We stopped in the town of Story and visited the Fetterman Monument, a place dedicated to the battlefield dead known as the Fetterman Fight, a battle between the Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapaho warriors lead by Red Cloud and the 18th U.S. Infantry and the 2nd U.S. Calvary under the command of Lieutenant Colonel William J. Fetterman. The attack by the Indians took place on December 12, 1866 resulting in 81 U.S. men dead and only 20+...

Aug 20, 2015 - Shuffling Off to Buffalo

Our first stop on the trip to Washington was Buffalo, Wyoming. This was a two day layover. We took a drive through the Crazy Woman canyon, a wild ride on a mostly one lane dirt road through a canyon with breath-taking views. Interestingly, a sign stated that downhill traffic must yield to uphill traffic. Luckily we did not run in to many situations where we had to yield, because our truck is pretty wide, and the one lane road isn't. That evening we had dinner at the Occidental Hotel. This place has an interesting history. It was the hangout...

Jul 26, 2015 - Devil's Tower and Buffalo, WY

We spent two days at Devil's Tower, WY in a campground where you could see the rock formation from our coaches. Devil's Tower is prominent in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind and they were showing it at the campground each evening. We had a nice gathering for birthday celebrations with a hot dog roast, cake and ice cream. We had a fierce hail storm one night but the hail was small in size and nobody's rig or car was damaged. Our next stop was Buffalo, WY. Our wagon master and tour guide had to have his rig towed to Gillette due...

Jul 12, 2015 - Interesting People

Yesterday was a scorching 99 degrees and today feels as though it will be, as well. We are thankful for air conditioning as we continue on I-90 west into Wyoming. How I always love that first glimpse of snow-capped peaks, even if we are melting out here on the prairie! Tonight, we are at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains in Buffalo, WY. Bev and Paul run the Big Horn Mountain Campground--such nice folks! They moved here from Massachusetts well over twenty years ago. We struck up a conversation as I was registering and Gary finally came...

Jun 13, 2015 - Buffalo, Wyoming

We left Devils Tower this morning and drove over to Buffalo, WY. It was just 2.5 hours driving time to get here. We wanted to get here early enough to do some sight-seeing. After lunch, we drove the nearly 65 miles from Buffalo to Tensleep on the Cloud Peak Skyway Scenic Byway. This route climbs over the Big Horn Mountains, one of the largest and most spectacular in Wyoming. This is another of those drives that offers new breath-taking views with every bend in the road. Today, we saw several deer, pronghorns, turkeys, a big moose and two...
