May 3, 2015 - Rolling on to Custer SD

On to Ontario, OR and another Walmart boondock night. The to Delco, ID for two nights at the Village of Trees. We visit a place in the mountains called the City of Rocks. Great hike with the girls. To Rocksprings, WY and another Walmart. We're getting comfortable with this bookdocking thing. Also used the generator so we would have electricity and watch TV! Totally self-contained! We could live in this thing! Cheynne, WY for two nights to rest. Final push Monday May 3 to Custer. We will be there a few days early. We'll find a place to stay...

Sep 29, 2014 - Cheyenne

Sue took a walk around the campground this morning and there is alot to see. This campground is a working Bison Ranch with 2500 in the herd. They have a small train that takes you out to see a small part of the herd. There are other animals here, too. There is even a restaurant. It would be a great RV Park but they have many long term residents and they are allowed to be as trashy as they want, which is pretty trashy. That along with the fact that it is right on the interstate, makes it a place we would not come back to. We drove into...

Bison and Balloons

Sep 28, 2014 - Headed for Wyoming

Terry Bison Ranch, 51 I-25 Service Rd, Cheyenne, WY 82007. 307-634-4171 Because the weather was threatening to be bad on Monday, we decided to leave a day early and head to Wyoming. We headed into town to fuel up and mail postcards then back to the campsite for a quick shower. As we were breaking down camp, two big, wild turkeys came to wish us fond farewell. The trip was pretty good with a few spots of road work to make things interesting. The new campground has alot to offer in amenities such as trail rides, a restaurant, a train ride to...

Bison and Balloons

Sep 22, 2014 - On to Cheyenne

Joe took Foxy for her morning walk and came back to get the camera. The elk herd had come to visit the campground. Then we broke camp and headed to Cheyenne. The road out of Estes Park to Loveland was a little curvy but not too bad. Once we hit I-25, we stopped for a break and picked up some touristy propaganda at the Wyoming Visitor Center. We're at the Cheyenne KOA for the next two nights. A small thunderstorm went through while we were having lunch but it brightened up after that. First item on the agenda was a run to Wal-Mart to stock...

Summer 2014 & Beyond

Aug 18, 2014 - Amana Colonies - what are they?

We eventually will end up in Amana, Iowa in mid September for the New Horizons Owners Group (NHOG) rally. New Horizons is the brand of the 5th wheel trailer we lovingly call the "COW" (condo on wheels) so in a way it's our second home :) The rally masters always try to pick an area in the country that will interest people, not just for the rally, but also to stay and visit. I had never heard of the Amana Colonies before the announcement of where this year's rally was to be held but after learning about them I'm very excited to get there....

Aug 17, 2014 - Warren Air Force Base

We are staying at Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming for a few days. The military allows active, retired, and disabled veterans to stay at any base that has RV accommodations for a nominal fee. This is the first time we have ever tried staying at a military base and I must say I am surprised as it is not at all what I expected. I was assuming we would be parked in some parking lot out in a field next to some broken down airplanes. Instead we are down in a valley amid trees with 40 sites that have full hook ups with 50 amps, a...

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...

Aug 12, 2014 - Cheyenne, WY

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...
