Aug 25, 2017 - Sheridan, WY

Sunday, we drove to Sheridan, WY where we stayed at a very nice KOA. In the afternoon we found the old locomotive that Bill remembered seeing on his way north. It was a huge engine built in 1940 by the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad Co. Then we had a great dinner at the Wyoming Rib and Chop House.

Jul 31, 2017 - A Last Stroll Around Sheridan

We started the day getting the oil changed in the truck. From there we went back to downtown Sheridan to wander around and get some more pictures. We drove to the local meat market and bought some goodies there then returned to the RV to deposit them. Then back to town for lunch and home for a relaxing afternoon. Too hot to do much as the temperature reached ninety six degrees. We went out to dinner to Montana's Rib and Chop House. Bill had the ribs which were delicious (award winning "the best in the world" according to their website) and...

Jul 30, 2017 - Visiting Cody

Today we were up bright and early and headed to Cody, Wyoming. The town was developed by William (Buffalo Bill) Cody. To get there from Sheridan, you drive over the Bighorn Mountains. It is a steep and winding drive with some spectacular views of the valleys on either side. The drive from Sheridan to Cody is 146 miles but takes almost 3 hours. The grades in some spots are eight to ten percent. When we got to Cody, we stopped for lunch and then went to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. There are five museums within the facility: The...

Jul 29, 2017 - Another Rest and Relaxation Day

Today we decided to just take it easy so we slept late then headed into Sheridan for lunch and to browse in some of the shops. We ended up buying just a pair of earrings but had fun looking at the interesting shops. One antique store had some great stuff and was one of the most organized and spacious antique stores we had been in. After looking around town, we did some more grocery shopping, filled up with fuel and headed back to the RV for more R & R.

Jul 28, 2017 - On to Wyoming

We said a sad good-bye to Big Timber. Spring Creek is really a very nice little campground on the river and we had a nice stay there. We headed east on I-90 stopping for brunch at Cracker Barrel in Billings, MT., then on to Sheridan. We have stayed at Peter D's before. It is just off the highway but quiet enough. The sites are level, gravel pull-throughs. There are nice restrooms and a well maintained laundry room. It is owned and run by a couple and they give a discount for cash (the green stuff, no checks). After setting up, we drove...

Jun 22, 2017 - Sheridan, WY

We arrived after a VERY LONG day of 9 hrs! We were suppose to take another route but somehow didn't. Oh well never again. We were really tired. We have stayed in this campground before and wanted to visit Sheridan before but wanted to see Buffalo, Wy about 30 miles south and where the series "Longmire" is about sorta. Sheridan is named for General Sheridan of the civil war. There is the Sheridan Inn that Buffalo Bill Cody and co owned and operated. It was once considered the finest between Chicago and San Francisco from 1894-1896. The...

May 27, 2017 - Deadwood to Devils Tower to Sheridan, Wyoming

We left Deadwood around 7:25 am and headed through Lead, an old mining town, to Roughlock Falls. The road went up and down hills, and was curvy in places, and very pretty. The ledges in places were towering above us. This is the first place we have seen birch trees. The road up to the falls was dirt, but pretty smooth. We realized when we got to the falls, we could have parked where the dirt road started, and walked up a trail to the falls. The falls was beautiful, and there were walking paths and overlooks in places. As we headed toward...

May 25, 2017 - Sheridan

We arrived at the Sheridan Best Western hotel early evening, and the went out for a walk through town. All the shops were shut! We went into a bar called The Mint. We had a few drinks whilst looking at the decor, which had lots of ranch branding irons burned into the walls, and lots of mounted animals! We then walked to a local Mexican for dinner before heading to the hotel

Sep 29, 2016 - Made it to Sheridan, Wyoming

We had already disconnected everything except the electrical yesterday so this morning was all we had to do was unplug, back the truck under the trailer and raise the jacks. We said our goodbyes to Gordon, Sally, Doug and Glenda. Telling them we will see them next year. We got on the road around 9:30 and headed down Hwy 89. We had a very good weather and the skies stayed partly cloudy. It was 48 degrees when we started but after noon it got up to 74 degrees. It was still a comfortable day and we would of made good time if we hadn't of...

Sep 18, 2016 - Day 11, Wednesday Sept. 14

Only one quilt store in Sheridan. So -- after visiting the quilt store we head to Devils Tower. Geologist still argue over how Devil's Tower was created, but the Lakota have a story that explains it. It is a cave of a large bear, the ridges are the result of the bear sharpening his claws. What a great picture! We have a long drive, today so we head to Keystone and Mount Rushmore.

Sep 15, 2016 - Bighorn mountains

We started the day at the local museum that is about 2 blocks from the RV park. It told of the stories of Indian battles, coal towns that grew up and then vanished. The railroad came through Sheridan and that was the impetus for it's growth. We see lots of RR switching tracks in town. The museum had a very interesting exhibit about the Tongue River log flume that was built in the Big Horn mountains to bring railroad ties down from the mountain when the railroads were being built across the plains. These were great structures built in the...
