As many of you have already heard and for those of you have not... we will be expecting a bouncing baby boy in January! We are so very excited about this new addition but with excitement also comes reality! So a traveling we will go. Nathan in typical "provider" fashion has insisted upon working as much as possible and has done a wonderful job of balancing being home and being on the road. This summer he has been to Alaska, Utah, and now Illinois. He will be home the beginning of December and then the chaos will begin! As for me I will be...

Sep 25, 2012 - Cody, Wyoming - Day 1

Cody Trolley Tours Like the pioneers of old, we had to travel across plains and mountains to get here to Cody, Wyoming. So we decided to relax, sit back and let Greg and Rose do the driving and present their colorful and entertaining history of Cody’s past, present, people and places. They traveled thousands of miles to personally research the old haunts of Buffalo Bill Cody, Annie Oakley and other western legends. We had a blast and will take home lifelong memories of our visit here. Old Trail Town – History Bob Edgar, a native of the...

Sep 22, 2012 - Day 6

Today we left Estes Park. All I need to do is find a hospital to work at there lol. It was beautiful. The drive out was just as pretty as it took us through an incredible canyon and down the mountains. We took the interstate after that out of Colorado and into Wy. It was another long day of driving, only about 8 hours this time, but still a lot to me doing the driving. The scenery changed to the western mesa with cactus, tons of antelope. We went through a town that claimed to be home to the jackalope lol. We stopped some along the way for...

Sep 12, 2012 - Leaving Henry's Lake

Our last two weeks were just as wonderful as our first two months. The campground was packed full over Labor Day weekend and then started emptying fast. We were running about half full. We finally got to see a moose. Cheryl and I were sitting in our "mule" talking to some campers when we saw they were looking over our shoulder and getting excited... I looked and saw some ducks in the water and couldn't understand why that was exciting them.. then I looked again and saw a moose's head sticking up above the bank of the lake... a few seconds...

Last night, Jon, Rick and Robin enjoyed a wine tasting at the Buffalo Jump Winery in Cody. There were very nice wines and we met Vin and Lisa Cappiello who are school teachers in Cody (Vin - Jr. High and Lisa 4th grade). They joined us on Sunday morning to crew and had the good fortune to fly in Western Spirit with Jon. The weather was again beautiful, winds calm and not a cloud in the sky. Jon took off from Mentlock Park and returned to the same spot. Yeah! What a great big horseshoe chase around Cody with Robin driving and Rick taking...

Aug 3, 2012 - Cody, WY

Hi All, Here we are in WY already, time sure flies by when you are having fun and no schedules to meet. We are staying here a couple of nights. As you can see by the pictures we found this tourist site called Old Trail Town. We really enjoyed this place and spent about three hours roaming around here. As told, there are over 100 old broken down wagons of all kinds. We took loads of picture. In the evening we went out to dinner and a show. The show was "Dan Miller", put on a great show and his 14 year daughter was excellent on the fiddle....
