Jul 25, 2015 - Sheridan, WY

Saturday morning, we left Rapid City heading west. With one fuel stop and one quick stop for lunch, it took us about 6 hours of lots of up and down hill driving. Although the traffic was light, it was good to get to our destination of Sheridan, WY. We visited Sheridan in 2011 on our way to Calgary Canada and really liked this small town. They have a cute Main St. downtown with lots of shops and Sunday is polo day at Big Horn Equestrian Center. So after the long drive, we went out to dinner at the Chop and Rib house, which was recommended to...

Jul 11, 2015 - Sheridan, WY Trip

We left the RV in Cody and drove over to Sheridan, Wyoming for the annual Sheridan WYO Stampede Rodeo. There was a parade (y'all should know by now that we go to lots of parades) Friday morning with Bed-Races to start things off. We had seen bed races before, but these beds anything but sleeping beds. Built for speed, not for comfort (kind of like me -- er, except backwards). It was a long parade, but only 2 bands. Lots of horses and native Americans in the parade. This is Indian Territory! We got into town Thursday and had to kill some...

Where RV Now?

Jun 29, 2015 - Sheridan, WY

Mon, 29 June: And just how HOT was it??? The great upper midwest heat wave of 2015 is upon us, and our refrigerator is not at all pleased. We had a restless nite as the overnite lows never dropped below the mid 70s so it was pretty warm. Sandi doesn't do heat very well so she was crankier than normal... Upon awakening we discovered that the temperature inside our fridge was in the fifties after an evening with temperatures in excess of 100°F. Bob went into Wal*Mart and bought a cooler and two bags of ice. One bag of ice went into the...

2015 Travels

Jun 22, 2015 - Sheridan, Wyoming

We have just two more days in Wyoming and then we will travel to Montana, our goal! We are in the town of Sheridan near the Bighorn Mountains. These mountains are separated from the main Rocky Mountain Range. The town of Sheridan has a very nice downtown with lots of shops and restaurants that are not of any chain. We made two stops and then just enjoyed strolling down Main Street. Our first stop was at the Sheridan Inn. When it opened in 1893 it was considered the finest hotel between Chicago and San Francisco. The porch is 130 feet long....

May 17, 2015 - Wall, SD to Sheridan, WY

Sunday, May 17, 2015 Wall, SD to Sheridan, WY 312.2 miles TRAVEL QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey." - Fitzhugh Mullan Now that sounds like a man after my own heart! He understands about roadtrips! I have always wondered if my wanderlust comes naturally or if it somehow is an effect of the many, many Sunday drives my parents took us on while growing up. I always loved them and to this day one of my favorite things is to drive down the road and look out the window at the world...I never...

Apr 9, 2015 - The snow covered mountains are in sight and Sheridan, Wy

Well this morning it wasn't misting rain. It was windy with temps around 32 degrees, felt like 21 degrees and also had snow flurries. We had ice on the truck. We got on the road at 9:30 and headed north on I25. Soon the sun came out and it warmed up to the 40's. We were traveling around 5000 foot elevation. There were small drifts and patches of snow that were still in the shade along the Interstate. The mountains and hills to the west of us were all dusted with a blanket of snow. The farther we went the heavier the snow seemed to have...

Nov 1, 2014 - Butte, MT to Sheridan, WY via Custer's Battlefield

11-1-14 Butte, MT to Sheridan, WY with a visit to the Custer Battlefield. I got up in the dark and was over to the local Starbucks around 6 ish for coffee and internet. Julie slept. Returned to the RV when it started getting light. We had a light breakfast and were on the road by 9:30AM. Great day and good driving conditions. There were a lot of up and down grades. We crested the continental divide (6,393) and kept on going until Julie called a halt at 2:00PM for rest and lunch. Julie wanted to take a walk so I talked her into waiting to...

Sep 7, 2014 - Day 15 - Climb

99.5 miles, 13.33 average, 42.47 max and 7113ft climbing. Today I rode the hardest climb of my cycling life. Basically a 4 hour climb. About 20 miles with a grade of 10 to 12 percent most of the time. My back was screaming. I have ridden steeper and I have ridden longer but never this steep for this long. To top that off - once the climb was finished there was still 70 miles to ride. The scenery was nice and I attached a couple of photos. I am happy to say I again have a room to myself - Great! Last night was not that bad - Dr. M only...

Jul 23, 2014 - Wyoming not North Dakota

Sheridan, Wyoming After leaving the repair shop at 3:00, we decided to head on to Custer, South Dakota, our next stop, bypassing North Dakota. I agreed to leaving this late only if we stopped somewhere halfway. Dennis, being the practical one suggested a KOA; me, being the unpractical one wanted to be adventurous and try a Walmart parking lot. As Dennis has said many times during our trip "If mama ain't happy, nobody's happy." That being said, guess where we stopped? Yes, Walmart. I called to make sure this store allowed RVs to park...

Jul 23, 2014 - Downtown Sheridan Wyoming. Visiting the Street Scene

I have always enjoyed walking the streets of small town USA and Sheridan is a great place to just wander about. Population is only 18000 and the downtown streets are easy to find a place to park. There are NO parking meters and the parking spaces are big enough for trucks. Today I even saw a Fifth Wheel RV and Truck taking up a couple of spaces. Sheridan has a lot of artwork on the street corners. You can walk Main Street downtown, up one side on down the other in a very short time. People are friendly and anxious to make you feel welcome....

Jul 22, 2014 - King's Saddlery My New Cowboy Belts.

I placed the order with Jim at King's Saddlery today for 2 belts. At the same time, Jim punched another hole in my current work belt. In the one picture you will see my current Ostrich Belt. That fits good so he measured from the hole that it is normally in and adds 5-6 inches to it. That gives me a belt that will handle any shiny belt buckle I have, but as well as give me a little room to grow, (If Needed) I still think Global Warming must be the cause of my belts shrinking or expanding over the years. Probably depends on the Sun Cycle. I...

Jul 21, 2014 - King's Saddlery Sheridan Wyoming

One of the big attraction in Sheridan is Kings Saddlery. It is listed as one of the 1000 things to see before you die. This book is available at most bookstores, and of course Amazon if you want to read for yourself. I have been to King’s Saddlery, counting today, 3 times and it has always been a treat to walk through the various displays. I talked with the Custom Leather Man Jim Jackson and tomorrow, I will be ordering myself a custom made cowboy leather belt. I have had custom belts before, but they seem to have shrunk over the years. My...
