Sep 25, 2013 - Cheyenne

We arrived in Cheyenne on Monday, helped by a mighty tail wind which pushed us across vast expanses of high desert prairie. In addition to the wind, it was cloudy and rainy and we kept wondering when the snow would start. Fortunately, we out ran any snow and found a nice RV park, just south of the city. Our first order of business was to hit Wal-Mart and we were rewarded with an extra bonus, Sam’s Club right next door. We stocked up on all sorst of goodies and snacks so graze to our heart content (yea, it was the double whammie). We were so...

Sep 20, 2013 - Cheyenne, Wyoming

Today started with Ross going out to the truck at 0630 and testing the key to see if the key was functioning properly. Ross learned from the Ford service tech in North Platte that if the "Theft" light does not go out in a second or so the system is considering the start attempt to be an attempted theft and it will not allow the engine to start. Well, the "Theft" light extinguished in a second or two so Ross did not start the engine because of the early hour but was relatively certain that it would start when needed. It did start when Ross...

Sep 20, 2013 - Cheyenne, Wyoming

September 20, 2013 Cheyenne, Wyoming We left the Holiday RV Park at 9 am and went to Timesaver #7 gas station (for diesel) which was across the street from the Ford dealership that Ross took his truck yesterday. What a misnomer of a name! The two RV lanes were under renovation and pulled into one of the other two diesel lanes. There was a truck in the other, pointed the wrong way. I waited at least ½ hour for the guy to finish. First he went back and forth to the office (I found out later to ask how to operate the pump), then he cleaned the...

Sep 12, 2013 - ...and some really old things here

Well, Linda did go to the Dinosaur Center with me, and we both were impressed with the scope and quality of the information and displays presented. It began with the very beginnings of life, the "sea slime" of the first one-celled living things, and displays clearly and concisely followed the development of life through the dinosaurs and beyond. There have been numerous discoveries in digs near this area of the country, and it would be exciting to take a tour (which was unfortunately a bit long for the time we had allotted) to a dig site....

Sep 9, 2013 - Cheyenne, Wyoming

Founded in 1867 as a U.S. Army fort located along the newly constructed Union Pacific Railroad, Cheyenne later matured from a typical Wild West town into Wyoming’s state capital. We arrived late in the afternoon, so we only had the following day to enjoy the sites of the city and the surrounding area. NATIONAL CENTER FOR ATMOSPHERIC RESEARCH (NCAR) In researching TripAdvisor.com for the best things to do in Cheyenne, we found a place a few miles outside the city called the “National Center for Atmospheric Research”. It is a scientific...

Western U.S. 2013

Sep 8, 2013 - Heber City to Cheyenne, WY

September 8 We were both up early and decided to hit the road at 7:15. Didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to Mark and Eileen but hopefully they will visit us in Sonoma before the end of the year. Not much to report about our Hwy 80 travels. Bob busied himself with a book on tape and I did crossword puzzles. Arrived in Cheyenne about 2:00. Downtown is almost deserted. We did check out the Capitol Grill ( in the historic Plain Hotel)where we are having dinner with Josh tonight. The wine list is almost non-existent and poor. Most of the better...

Sep 2, 2013 - To Cheyenne, WY

Our next stop in our tour of Wyoming is Cheyenne where we'll spend four nights at Curt Gowdy State Park. It was a nice quiet park with great views of the reservoir it's on. Imagine our surprise when on the second night there we ran into acquaintances from back home - it truly is a small world!!

Sep 2, 2013 - Spokane to Cheyenne

August 15, 2013 ----September 2, 2013 Let me try to catch up on the posts and pictures. I didn’t want to bore anyone now that our activities have slowed down and don’t seem to be as exciting as the last couple months but I will fill you in anyway. We stayed at the Spokane Elks until the 21st. While we were there we just did normal, everyday chores for those of us on the gypsy trail. One night we went over to the lodge for tacos and I played music with the band that plays every Tuesday night. I got to play with them 2 times. Had a great time...

I have not been adding any pictures or narrative to the last few posts. We have not been doing a lot, compared to the great trip to Alaska. I didn't think everyone wanted to see pictures of me sitting around in my bathrobe. While we are parked at the Moose Lodge in Cheyenne, Wy. I will try to catch up on some of the interesting incidents for the last few stops. Glad we could share this adventure with our friends.

Aug 21, 2013 - Cheyenne, Wyoming

This was just an overnight stay on our way to South Dakota. The KOA is fine for one night. At least the roads are gravel and we didn't kick up clouds of dust as we pulled in! We drove to the post office and then toured the city of Cheyenne, Wyoming. We were right in the height of rush hour and in the middle of extensive road construction throughout the city. Even though the population here is relatively low...at approximately 60,000 (10% of the whole state of Wyoming) they still deal with congestion throughout the city. Upon our return to...

Aug 18, 2013 - Cheyenne, WY - Day 79

August 18, 2013...Another travel day. We left the Wind River View campground about 8:30 am and headed south on Hwy. 191 to Rock Springs, WY. We turned east there on I-80 and traveled all the way to Cheyenne, WY. The terrain today was high desert with plenty of sagebrush. At one of the rest stops, there was a sign which stated that the sagebrush has a deep taproot and can survive in 6" of annual rain. There are 13 varieties of sagebrush. Sagebrush provides food for pronghorn antelope, sage grouse, wild horses, mule deer, and small mammals...

Aug 18, 2013 - Curt Gowdy State Park, Cheyenne and Laramie, WY - Aug 2013

Curt Gowdy State Park is located 24 miles west of Cheyenne and 24 miles east of Laramie along the Lincoln Highway. The one thing we have learned about Wyoming's State Parks is that they really don't want you to know exactly where the campgrounds are or the entrances to the parks. There are no maps. It has been an interesting experience. We hate making reservations, but it seems to be the only way to get an idea of a site. We have been using satellite images to locate potential campsites. Curt Gowdy is a great park and we would come back now...
