Jun 15, 2013 - Cheyenne, Wyoming

June 15, 2013 – Cheyenne, Wyoming We arrived in the outskirts of Cheyenne on Friday night. The name “Cheyenne” conjures up visions of cowboys, their hats, cattle and rodeos and the folks in this area don’t disappoint. We are staying in a KOA off I-80. Although it is not much more than a big gravel lot, the folks who own and work here, have planted trees, and everything is spotless. Cheyenne is the state capitol of Wyoming; a city of only 60,000 people which is amazing! We needed something from Radio Shack so, went to the Frontier Mall; a...

Jun 11, 2013 - Cheyenne, WY

This morning we left for Cheyenne, WY but not until Jay had his usual breakfast at McDonald's. Luckily, there was one within walking distance from the RV and Jay took advantage of that the whole time we were in Colorado Springs. After a quick stop for fuel, we were headed north on I-25 through the center of Denver for a 3 hour drive to Cheyenne. On the way there, when I saw a sign for Ft Collins, I remembered several of our RV friends telling us about a great truck stop there that is known for its cinnamon rolls. Well, with a little...

May 29, 2013 - RV Slide Troubles and Wind!

Wind seems to be the norm in this part of the country. In fact, on our way to Cheyenne, Dad noted that he would have liked to have the contract on building the snow fences for the state of Wyoming....they're everywhere (around homes, around ranches, and along the highway to prevent snow from piling up on the road)! About 10 miles out of Laramie, we stopped at the Lincoln Monument rest stop/national park info center. There is a huge pyramid type structure with a bronze likeness to President Lincoln. In the information center, we learned a...

May 27, 2013 - Cheyenne, Wy

27 May AB Campground was a cool RV Park They had BBQ pits going everyday and pits and all that good BBQ they sold to the public and including homemade desserts everyday. Good traveling with not too much wind. We know that wind can be an issue in this part of the land. 28 May We headed for Lusk early as the wind pick up around noon. We were skirting all around the dark threatening skies until we got to BJ's Campground. Then it let us have a bit of the heavier drops. Couldn't get the WiFi going so we just chilled after the (big) road trip....

May 18, 2013 - On to Cheyenne, Wyoming

Today we drove on to Cheyenne, Wyoming where we are going to acclimate to the change in elevation for a few days before going on to Moose where the elevation is 6200'. We didn't do any sightseeing in Cheyenne because we've spent a bit of time here before in 2009. We did have a lot of errands to run including getting Mary finger-printed for her security clearance to work for the Grand Teton Association. We did a bit of shopping. One of the things we purchased was a heated mattress pad knowing that it would be a bit chillier in Moose than...

May 17, 2013 - Denver to Cheyenne Wy

No success in Denver regarding my canopy. All they want to do is replace the motor and cap ( it comes in one piece) and they have to order the parts- can't go pick up so off we go- look at it later in the trip. Stoped at the visitor center on the state line. It was probably the best design of any centers we have visited and had alot of cool elements- really liked the layered colored concrete will spend the night here.

Apr 25, 2013 - Laramie to Cheyenne, WY

Last night we watched an episode of the Good Wife that we had brought along with us. We are addicted and are only on season one! I slept in my heavy sweat pants and a hooded sweat shirt just to be safe. Bob got out our portable heater so we seemed to be set for most anything. Bob’s feet were still cold so he bought 3 pairs of socks for $75!!! They had better keep him warm. The morning was cold but beautiful. My Sonoma neighbor, Mary, grew up in Casper, WY and spent 2 years at UW where she was a Tri Delt. ( I was a Tri Delt too!). Tri Delt...

Apr 22, 2013 - oh yes, we departed alright!

4/19-4/22/2013 TX to WO We took off under beautiful blue skies, several hours late but, before noon, so we in the Boase family consider that a huge success. Our boys will understand that we pulled out without going back for anything…shocking! The first stop we made was this momma’s kitchen table eatin (cracker barrel) in Denton for lunch then hauled our full tummies to Wichita Falls. We stopped for gas and so happy we did as I was able to point out that dads truck sure was leaning to the side bad. Luckily momma had her powerful super duper...

Apr 11, 2013 - The Daddy of 'em All

I treated myself to a breakfast out this morning. I sure miss my 5th wheel, but I sure enjoyed my bacon, eggs and pancakes...which came with my own pitcher of coffee. No, it wasn't IHOP. Spent the day getting to know Cheyenne. And much of it at the Cowboy Museum right next to the Cheyenne Frontier Days grounds. The museum itself wouldn't have been worth the $8 fee, but they were having their annual Western Art Show and Sale and I thoroughly enjoyed moseying through the large area and many aisles several times. Rilyn...if you are reading...

Apr 10, 2013 - And I Just Kept Driving...

You know, if I had taken the southern route, I wouldn't have met Ranold. Yes, he says he RAN until he was OLD. And he is getting up there at 83 years of age. He was shoveling snow on the ground when I came over and asked him if he had something I could use to get rid of the snow on my slide-outs. He wouldn't let me do anything. First he got a ladder and removed the snow with a dust pan. But finding an inch of solid ice under all the loose snow puzzled him for a second. But only a second. He had me drive to the front of the laundry/shower...

Nov 15, 2012 - Cheyenne KOA

Another long travel day. On the road early and off at dark. Even though the terrain didn't appear to change much today, our elevation rose to over 6,000 feet. We're noticing the drier air with the constant drinking of water to keep our lips from drying out. Of course the elevation change has something to contribute also. We found a very nice KOA in which to spend the evening. Great facility with wonderful owners/hosts who were helpful with our overnight package delivery and helping us with printing boarding passes for Bev. On that note, we...
