Jul 22, 2013 - Frontier Days Rodeo Bronco Riding

When I was afforded "credentials" to take pictures at the Frontier Days Rodeo, I was granted the honor of working in the chute or in the Pit for 1/2 of the Rodeo. I chose to spend 1/2 of the Rodeo in the Pit. This means that for 1.5 hours I would be allowed to take pictures in a bunker type structure approximately 40 yards from the chutes, a series of 4 steel cages were the Cowboys mount the horses or bulls they will attempt to ride for the minimum 8 seconds. This is my "first rodeo" which means--I don't know what I'm doing. In the 1.5...

Jul 17, 2013 - Fifth Stop - July 17 to 19 - Cheyenne, WY

Wednesday--We left Kearney, NE this morning at 9:40am, earlier than we usually get going. Crossed the Time Line into Mountain Time, so we are now two hours behind Eastern time. There were head winds on I 80 all the way and with the hills after flat NE, we were only getting 9.6 mpg on the computer. This was driving at 61 mph. Arrived in Cheyenne at 3:15 MT and set up at the Terry Bison Ranch RV Park. We only got a site at the back of the Park with water and electric because of Frontier Days in Cheyenne starting Friday. A lot of the...

Jun 23, 2013 - Colorado Springs, CO to Cheyenne, WY

The two days at the Elk Lodge in Colorado Springs seemed to just speed by. The first afternoon it was very hot so I ended up in the pool. It was heavenly. Later that evening we attended their spaghetti dinner. Very good food and they served it fast and hot. Loved the small cream puffs with cherry chocolate sauce. Saturday was a day of frustration. My printer just wouldn't print. It copies and scans just fine – but it only prints weird characters – one line per page – when it does print. Most of the time it won't even print. I found several...

Summer 2013 Travels

Jun 16, 2013 - 2nd Day at the Ranch

Today we took the train ride through the Buffalo farm. On the way to the train ride Debbie slipped an fell and cut her left knee pretty bad. We did not realize how bad it really was till a few days later. Tinker. Tinker was born in 1975 in North Dakota and was a Champion Bull within the North Dakota Bison Association. Ron Thiel purchased Tinker in 1986 to become the breeding bull for the Terry Bison Ranch. Visitors marval at his magnificent size of over 2,250 pounds.

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 15, 2013 - Terry's Bison Ranch

Today we will be staying two night at the Terry's Bison Ranch in Cheyenne, WY. It is a Passport American Campground (which means you can camp for 1/2 price). Their policy was for only one night though. So we did that and then paid full price for the 2nd night. It was well worth it. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at their restaurant. We both had a Bison Burger. We probably could of shared it as they were so large and very tasty. Address: 51 E I-25 Service Rd Cheyenne, WY 82007 (307) 634-4171

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.
