Oct 2, 2012 - Sheridan, Wyoming

We are visiting the beautiful town of Sheridan, Wyoming today. We needed to stock up on a few things at Walmart, Sheridan had the closest one. :-) Once we saw this cool town, we were glad we visited. It has unusual art posted on almost every corner. The traffic was too busy to get pictures of all of them, I am adding the few I was able to capture. A few facts about Sheridan: Several scenes of the 2006 film Flicka were filmed on location in Sheridan. It was based on the novel, My Friend Flicka. In the film K-PAX, Sheridan is the first...

Sep 2, 2012 - Custer's Last Stand

I left Deer Lodge Montana this morning and headed east and south as I90 drops down into Wyoming and continues across country towards Chicago. I made good time as the highway is generally good with the exception of bridges! Why can't an engineer somewhere figure out how to transition from pavement to cement bridges and back again without having dips and holes leading on and off the bridges? The trailer bounces pretty good (and so do I in the truck) when crossing many of them and I noticed the same thing when I was riding the bike through...

Aug 8, 2012 - Sheridan WY

We stopped in Sheridan Wyoming, a very historic town with lots of bronze status adorning the streets, we visited King's Museum, Don King was well know for his leather work especially his saddles, the museum is behind the original Leather shop on main street. We then visited the Mint Bar, a well know cowboy hang out. Sheridan is home to "Trails End", it is not Wyoming's only historic house museum, it is the largest and most authentically furnished. Nearly everything on exhibit at Trail End is original to the home or the Kendrick family, and...

Jun 14, 2012 - Sheridan, WY

We traveled out of South Dakota and into Wyoming today. The terrain changed from the green spotty scattering of ponderosa pines on the rolling hills of SD to a more rugged combination of hills and prairies of Wyoming. The highway changed to rose colored lanes (made from the red rock in the area). I took a picture from the welcome center to show the Interstate in the background. Quite different from our trips to FL on I-75! We spent the afternoon strolling the streets of the historic western town of Sheridan. The RV park owner said we just...

Jun 10, 2012 - Day 3...554 miles later and we are FINALLY out of Montana

Updated with photos Day 3...Started off not too badly..got up at a reasonable time and hit the road at 9am. Gas in Bozeman was $3.65 today. So even cheaper than yesterday! Woohoo... As we started off we saw a chipmunk! Cool..the dogs missed it but Rose had to grab my ankles as I tried to chase after it. Saw a few more but they were sure much bigger than the one here! Weather was fine...bit chilly, lil bit windy and as we travelled farther east and south, the wind only got worse. Not much in the way of rain as the forecast projected. Our...

Aug 23, 2011 - Road to Escapade

We packed up, got some gas for the MH, hitched up the PU and were on the road by 11. Really hate these early mornings. LOL We had less than 200 miles and were were going to park at the Home Depot so we were in no hurry. At about the 417 MM on I-90 in MT we saw a big grass fire. It had covered one whole hill and was headed for some others. They had two helicopters dipping water out of the Yellowstone to fight the fire. We later stopped at a rest area and I made some sandwiches and we vegged awhile eating and talking. I had no internet...

Jul 15, 2011 - Sheridan, WY and Custer's Last Battle

After settling in Eddie and I drove one hour North into Montana to visit the National Monument where they recount the famous Battle of the Little Bigh Horn. Folklore refers to this as Custer's Last Stand but local residents and the US Parks Service now call it "Custer's Last Battle" and by the Indians involved, as the Battle of the Greasy Grass. Although this entry may seem a bit long it is actually the shortest version I could muster and still give this event its just due! ********* The Battle of the Little Bighorn, was an armed engagement...

Jun 25, 2011 - Shovin' on to Sheridan, WY

We had a quiet night and got going pretty early. We decided to top off our diesel before we left; the station on the corner had $3.75/gallon, couldn’t pass that up even though we needed just under 30 gallons. Then we hit the road. The drive was really pretty, gets one in touch with how expansive the state of Wyoming really is. We were surprised how green everything was, lots of snow melt probably and some irrigation. There’s lots of range land for cattle, horses, sheep, and deer…….sometimes, they were all together in the same field. Hannah...

Jun 24, 2011 - Sheridan, WY

Since we had such a long drive yesterday, we decided to take Friday morning off from sightseeing. Jay rode his bike about 25 miles to the town of Decker, which is just over the Wyoming border into Montana. He told me that only thing in that town was a coal mine. Pretty desolate. The sun was really shining by about noon and we headed into the town of Sheridan. They have beautiful sculptures all through town, some interesting old architecture and some cute shops. As we were taking all this in, some dark clouds rolled in and before we knew it...

Jun 23, 2011 - Home, Home on the Range

Home, home on the range…. Where the deer and the antelope play. Well, we DEFINITELY saw plenty of range today in our 5 ½ hour drive north from Cheyenne, WY to Sheridan, WY. In fact, that’s about all we saw, although we did see deer and antelope on the range, as well as cattle, sheep, bison and horses. And the views of the snow covered Rockies to the west of us were really magnificent. Although the scenery stayed very much the same for the entire drive, it really was beautiful. But Jay and I both agreed, we could never live here. Way too...
