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....

Jun 10, 2014 - Douglas Delight

We spent the night in Douglas, Wyoming. We were camped in a city maintained campground that was free. We arrived here after sadly leaving Golden behind in the rearview mirrors. It was very quiet here. That was a welcome relief from our Golden camp. The campground is on the banks of the North Platte River. Lots of green grass and shade trees. Price is right! The scenery between here and Denver was somewhat boring after a while. Nothing but rolling green grass-covered hills for as far as you can see. Tomorrow we leave the interstate to travel...

Aug 7, 2013 - Douglas, WY

We enjoyed driving south through Wyoming. Every place we go is a little different. Wyoming has a lot of open space, and I did not know that we would see some oil wells and coal mines. We passed the world's largest coal mine in Thunder Basin, WY, and a few oil fields. There were not many towns along our route today, but each one had some heavy oil field equipment. Douglas is a railroad town and an oil industry town. Coal is shipped via railroad and we saw many long trains along our route loaded with coal. The oil must go via a pipeline...
