Aug 13, 2014 - Down to Cheyenne, WY

We left for Cheyenne this morning. We'll be staying at Terry Bison RV Resort. Sounds interesting. They have Bison on their ranch but they were all far away from the RV park. It is located past the city almost to the border with Colorado. It was a very hot day so we just relaxed and ate lunch in the rig. About 4:45 we went to gas up the car and visit the Cheyenne Elks Lodge. A little quiet at first, just talking to bartender only. Then when we were about to leave, more came in for a meeting. They started including us in their conversations...

From Cheyenne KOA Another long day of driving 546 miles. This is getting old real quick! Had a wonderful night sleeping with windows open and it was cool enough today that we didn’t turn air on until after noon. This was a much nicer route that I-70 but when we approached I-80 the GPS said to follow it for 886 miles. Yikes! Well, we have taken care of a few of those miles. We went through some interesting places that I would have liked to stop. Maybe next year. I posted some pictures of a couple of arches we drove under. Just love the west!...

Jul 22, 2014 - Tues, 7/22 Cheyenne, WY

Deer Haven has levees along the North Platte River. Made us, who had been evicted for a flash flood, rather interested. We crossed to Laramie then Cheyenne over the Snowy Range Scenic Highway. The pass has an elevation of 10, 847, in the Medicine Bow Mountains. Every place there is water; there are trees, much different from the high desert we left. We pass a campground called 'The Place.' We are now in free range territory. And now, even at this elevation, we are in trees. After all, it is a national forest! There is a recreation area -...

To Alaska and Back

Jul 14, 2014 - Overnight in Douglas

The problem with this life is that sometimes you make commitments to be somewhere by a specific date. As you travel from point A to point B, you have to stop along the way to rest. Each place we have stopped at since we left Buckeye, there are sights to see and we would have liked to settle in for a few days. This is an amazing country and there is SO MUCH to see. And, you need time to see it. For most of our journeys we have HAD to be somewhere on a certain date. From this day forward we intend to drive only 200 miles and stop to see what...

Jul 13, 2014 - Tornado Warning

One of our most interesting days in our full-time life happened today. We decided to go into Cheyenne and take the Trolley Tour to view the city. Here is a little interesting fact of Wyoming. “On July 5, 1867, General Grenville M. Dodge and his survey crew platted the site now known as Cheyenne in Dakota Territory (later Wyoming Territory). This site was chosen as the point at which the Union Pacific Railroad crossed Crow Creek, a tributary of the South Platte River. The city was not named by Dodge, as his memoirs state, but rather by...

Jul 12, 2014 - Colorado to Wyoming

Today we drove to Cheyenne, Wyoming for a 2 day stay. It turned out to be about a 5 hour drive. We went over our time estimate by an hour due to heavy, heavy traffic through Denver on Interstate 25. We expected to see accidents, but no, just heavy traffic. Whew on a Saturday? Thank goodness it wasn't a week day. Lots of beautiful scenery through Colorado. The color green was prominent. We hit a rain storm just before reaching Cheyenne, otherwise it was a sunny day. We arrived at our campground “Terry Bison Ranch” in Cheyenne, Wyoming about...

Well we were able to a new water pump in St. Louis on Friday works great. Left Sat morning, wallet slightly thinner and drove to Lexington, NE 630 miles. Time passed fast as we were listening to a book on tape. Stayed in a Walmart parking lot just off I-80 in Lexington. Water pump worked great no problems. Drove to Cheyenne today and it was and is still windy. We ran into a rain/hail storm and had to pull off the road for a few minutes. When they fixed the water pump repair shop they said I had a small leak in the bleeder valve on the front...

A pretty long day. Drove 423 miles to Cheyenne. While driving in Denver, my voltage gage for the house battery system went crazy. We pulled over in a parking lot and discovered the relay that controls the house 12 volt system burned out. Got a new relay at a rv dealer along the highway. No more problems with the house batteries.

Monday Update: Another 3" or so last night...more pics added. Sunny and warming today. I-80 was closed this morning and we plan on leaving for Kearney NB tomorrow morning. If you haven't had a chance to see this gorgeous part of our Country hope you can some day. Still raining but roads are fine. Stopped in Rock Springs on the way to Cheyenne to fuel up...our first fuel stop leaving Reno. Nice to have about 100 gallons along on these long trips. Arrived at a nice RV Park just outside of Cheyenne around 4pm after about a 6 hour run. Planned...

Oct 21, 2013 - Day-2 Cheyenne, Wyoming

The Journey Continues After a pleasant night in Billings we got up early and we're on the road by 8:00am again, as we had a fairly long drive to get to Cheyenne. Jan called Pilot-Flying J while we we're underway and got our charge card activated. We stopped at Hardin to get fuel and then continued on. We had hoped to go through the Black Hills, but the weather forecast was for snow and rain. So we took the route through Cheyenne. While we still haven't seen the Black Hills, the trip from Billings to Cheyenne was fantastic, even though a...

Al & Jan on the Road

Oct 8, 2013 - Cheyenne, WY

From Terry Bison Ranch RV Park Cheyenne, WY Enjoy America Very cold when we woke up this morning. Propane heater quit during the night so not sure what happened. Gauge is showing we have a half tank of propane. We have the fireplace and an electric heater so we can survive. When I turned my cell phone on I saw a text from Patrick which brought tears and the more I thought about leaving them, the more the tears fell. I would love to turn around and go back but I have Bill looking at the snow on the side of the road and wanting to get home...
