Apr 10, 2014 - Made it to Sheridan, Wy

Got started early this morning so we could get to our next stop in Sheridan, Wy. It was misting rain and cloudy. The wind had calmed down over night. We were between Lingle and Fort Laramie on Hwy 26. We had planned to find a place to have breakfast but with only small towns there wasn't much of a choice. So when we got to Casper we had to stop and get fuel. We were still in time for a McDonald's breakfast so we did a quick breakfast and got back on the road. The other day we must have gotten some bad diesel. Our fuel mileage improved after...

Sep 24, 2013 - Casper to Sheridan

BAU Date 9/24/2013 Casper, WY was nothing to write home about so we packed up and headed for Sheridan, WY. There is some really pretty country around Sheridan. For those who think this part of the country is desolate, be very very grateful. Lack of humans leaves lots of room for cattle. This “desolate” part of the country allows us to afford to eat. Without it, we would be paying $20 per pound for hamburger. Tough, friendly people in those small states that feed us. Alas, today was also an “oops” days. Approaching Sheridan we followed the...

Sep 23, 2013 - Devil's Tower

Today it was a day trip to Devil’s Tower. 188 miles one way. Took all day but it was worth it! A rock tower rising 867 feet out of the ground! (Google it for an interesting read.) There was a trail around the base that was about a 3 mile walk. We took the girls around it in hopes of wearing them out. Grace tugged and pulled the whole 3 miles! We think maybe there could be mountain goat somewhere in her lineage.

Sep 10, 2013 - Missoula, MT to Sheridan, WY

On this day we left Missoula, Montana and moved on to Bozeman, Montana once all the repairs to the exhaust system had been completed. It was mid afternoon before we got on the road so we didn’t drive quite as far as we had planned for that day. This day didn’t include anything special except that the motorhome certainly didn’t make all the noise anymore and it was a pleasure to park it in the campground that evening without exhaust fumes seeping in while it was sitting still and idling during the time we extended the jacks and put out the...

Sep 9, 2013 - Wyoming Drive

Today, we left the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota and traveled through the northwest portion of Wyoming. We stopped for the night in Sheridan. The drive was pleasant and the scenery was spectacular. We are on the east side of the Bear Tooth mountains. When we arrived at our campground, the attendant suggested a visit to Don Kings Saddlery and museum located on main street here in Sheridan. It was a hit. Don King was a true cowboy legend. He was a master leather smith, creating saddles, belts, gun belts, and ropes. Today the shop...

Jul 24, 2013 - Sturgis, Deadwood and Devil's Tower

Today was a pretty relaxed day. We woke up and went to the restaurant that was adjacent to the hotel that we stayed in and had a hearty breakfast. We then went downtown Sturgis to look around the stores. It was made apparent to us almost immediately that the downtown core of Sturgis is mostly vacant during most of the year. Only a few weeks before the bike rally many of the stores were vacant. The majority of the stores sold the same things and had the same prices. It was a neat thing to see and was nice not to be in huge crowds. There were...

Jul 9, 2013 - On the road again.

/// Peter D's RV Park Sheridan, WY Tuesday – July 9, 2013 A Travel Day: Our extended stay in the Black Hills of South Dakota turned out to be more of a drag than filled with excitement. The weather was mostly okay however we did receive much more rain than normal over the past several days, mostly a result of sudden severe afternoon thunderstorms. We have seen about everything we had ever hoped to see here. Over the past several days I have relaxed with lots of reading and logged several foot miles on the Mickelson Trail. Nancy spent some...

Well we are finishing up our stay in Sheridan and will move on tomorrow to Gillette for the RV Rally.

Jun 8, 2013 - Devil's Tower & Sheridan, WY

Hello again! We had a nice drive today, especially me, I just had to sit there! :) We left Rapid City, SD around 8:30 this morning. It was bittersweet leaving South Dakota behind us. We had such a great time in this state getting to see family and friends who are like family :) all the wonderful sights of the beautiful state of South Dakota. It truly is a beautiful state, and I think God's timing was perfect for us to be here! Not too hot, just perfect weather wise and so very, very GREEN from all the great rain they have been having. They...

May 26, 2013 - Devil's Tower to Sheridan, Wyoming

Sunday 26th May, 2013 Deadwood, South Dakota to Sheridan, Wyoming After we had breakfast today, we walked up the very steep hill to the Mt Moriah Cemetery (Boot Hill) in Deadwood. It had rained overnight but the day was fine and was quite warm as we walked. We looked at many graves including the famous ones of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane – she had asked as her last wish to be buried next to Wild Bill and her wish was granted. In the Visitor Centre we were amused to read about some of the old death records that stated the cause of...

May 12, 2013 - Sheridon, Wyoming

Good Morning and Happy Mothers Day to everyone. We got up this morning and it was another beautiful day. We started out and headed west on I90. We don't have a specific park to head to but have found 2 rv parks in Buffalo that we will check out. We traveled down I90 and saw the country side change from rolling hills and pastures. After we entered Wyoming we climbed to over 5000 ft elevation and then back down to 3500 ft. We hit some grades as we got closer to the Big Horn mountains. We got to Buffalo and went to the Mountain View RV park....

Feb 4, 2013 - Butte to Sheridan

It had not got any warmer overnight as it was still -3 when we loaded up the car to leave, however the day was looking promising for a clear day with warmer temperatures. Another quick drive around Butte before getting back on the road to ensure no Boot Barn or DWS shoe store escaped Nics attention. A bit further doen the interstate we had more luck in Belgrade with a Starbucks coffee and a look around the local Harley Davidson dealer, no bargains here. Onwards through scenic hills and mountains and into Bozeman for another walk around...
