Aug 15, 2017 - Douglas WY

Continuing on US 26 we started seeing billboards for Wall Drugs in Wall SD which is over 400 miles away. The road is not as pretty as yesterday. One reason we decided on 2 days in Douglas is that there is a natural phenomenon just west of town called Ayers Natural Bridge. Over the course of millions of years, a bend in LaPrele Creek (originally known as Bridge Creek) wore away at a wall of solid rock, creating a natural opening. The creek eventually shifted course through the opening, forming a 30-foot high and 50-foot ) wide arch, today...

The Summer of 2017

Jul 16, 2017 - It Got Hot

As we've moved south through Wyoming the weather has turned blazing hot. We haven't needed the AC much as we've been traveling the past couple of months, but it appears we will need it from now on. The only problem is Winnie's dash AC is not cooling to capacity and the gen set won't run for more than about 20 minutes so we can't run the roof top units as we drive. It was a pretty uncomfortable ride today to Douglas, WY where we stopped for the night. Once we got to the Douglas KOA it took a long time for the roof top units to cool off the...

Mar 25, 2016 - So that is what a Blizzard is like!!!!

Well we stayed in Ogallala until Friday morning and then headed to Douglas, Wyoming. When we pulled in to Ogallala on Tuesday we knew the weather was suppose to be colder and there was a chance of snow and high winds.

Then it changed to snow around 2:00 and the winds picked up. The weather reports said that the wind reached gust of 50 mph. The rest of the day up until...

Sep 19, 2015 - Douglas, WY

Buffalo, WY to Casper to Douglas, WY on I-25 S, (162 miles, 3 hours). The landscape along this route has been wide open rolling hills of cattle and sheep land. We didn’t see a lot of cattle or sheep, but we saw several herds of pronghorn antelope during our drive and our first 80 mph sign post. My impression is that this part of Wyoming is just vast. You need to be independent and self-reliant living out here. Your nearest neighbor is 30-40 miles away. It’s also 60 to 100+ miles between towns. We stopped at Denny’s in Casper, WY for lunch...

Jul 28, 2015 - Douglas, WY

Leaving Sheridan, WY mid-morning, we headed south on I-25 to Douglas, WY for just a one night stop. What a windy drive!! But that seems to ALWAYS be the case in Wyoming. It was a long 4 hours of tough windy driving in and out of construction zones and then......a fuel stop that was a disaster. We thought we'd get some fuel in Casper, WY and stopped at a Pilot truck stop. I was driving and this was the oddest truck stop we ever saw. The sign for the truck entrance was hidden and before I knew it I had turned into the regular gas lanes. Well,...

Aug 7, 2014 - Drive to Polebridge MT

August 7 - Today we drove from Columbia Falls MT to Polebridge MT. About 26 miles. What we didn't realize was that most of the road wasn't paved!! Lonny washed and detailed the truck this morning and said it was the cleanest it's been since we started the trip..... that was before the road trip to Polebridge. You should see the truck now!! yikes!! Covered in dust. He's now gone back to the car wash. We drove to Polebridge because we heard that the Polebridge Mercantile circa 1914, made awesome Huckleberry bear claws. We bought one to share....
