Sep 16, 2019 - Wow, the Summer has flown by!

Another season has ended and we are pulling out today and headed to Texas. We are leaving early this year due to starting our other camp hosting job and also jury duty on Oct 1st. We sure would like to stay a little longer to see the colder weather to come in to Montana and also for Texas to at least get off the "Broil" setting. LOL We had a very good Summer and always look forward to seeing Gordon and Sally. We couldn't ask for better employers or friends. We also enjoyed working with the other two workcamper couples. It really makes a...

May 4, 2019 - Sheridan WY

We went to the World Famous Corn Palace in Mitchell – world famous because it’s the only one in the world https://cornpalace.com/. And believe it or not, early in the 20th century there were others, but as the only surviving one, they get to currently claim the top billing. Now, just to clarify, it is not made of corn...that would be silly. But it is decorated with corn. Every year – at a cost of about $130,000 – they use 12 different colors of corn that are grown on a nearby farm to re-cover the outside walls of the palace, making shapes...

Nov 10, 2017 - Time to head to warmer climate

We pulled out this morning to head back to Texas. For the past week we have had almost a foot of snow, temps down to -5 degrees and driving on snow packed roads. We picked up Karen at the Great Falls airport and then spent 3 days in Helena for Lyddia to see her Doctors. Then coming back to White Sulphur to get things ready to pull out. We had to clear the snow off of the slides and shovel the snow out of the bed of the truck so we could get ready for travel. This morning we had a little trouble getting the truck connected to the trailer....

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...

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
