May 4, 2011 - Historical Sites in Sheridan

The Sheridan Inn was opened in June, 1893. It is in the Ripley Believe It or Not as "the House of 69 Gables". It is still in use today and in very good shape. The old rooms were very small and now are being doubled and bathrooms added. Each room is being named after famous people that have stayed there, such as Buffalo Bill Cody. Trail End Historic Site is an example of Flemish Revival architecture, it has twelve full and partial bathrooms, three floors and basement. It was finished in 1910 by John B. Kendrick. Who later became United...

Feb 19, 2011 - Mostly a good driving day

Got an early start this morning and managed to get another 452 miles behind us for a total of 2095 since we left the New Orleans area. Only 685 miles to go. Colorado is now a thing of the past, and only another 23 miles of Wyoming to go. A big storm is on the way, so it looks like we will spend a day killing time in Sheridan. The snow started just before we got here. The roads are supposed to be better on Monday.

Our travels

Oct 21, 2010 - Sheridan, WY

After the last three busy and long days we decided to take it easy today. Before I begin today's adventure, we forgot to tell you about the display of famous cars in Deadwood. In the one Historic Saloon in downtown, there was a collection of cars including Herbie, the Love Bug; James Bond (007) car; Magnum PI's red Ferrari; Mash's jeep; Smokey the Bandit's car; the outfit worn by Jackie Gleason in Smokey the Bandit movie; and 1976 Mountain Bike found in the barn at John Wayne's home (with owners card and title belonging to John Wayne). This...

Oct 10, 2010 - A Beautiful Last Day in Sheridan

We began the day with breakfast at Perkins Restaurant then went to church at St. Peter's. Their early service is at 7:30am (ouch) so we chose the second service at 10:00am. It is a beautiful older church with wonderful stained glass windows. The service and sermon were very inspiring. After church, we went to WalMart to fill some water jugs then made a few other stops and returned home to watch football and get ready for tomorrow's move. Later we had a most delicious dinner at the Wyoming Rib and Chop House. The owners are originally from...

Oct 8, 2010 - Downtown Sheridan

We started the day at the Ford Dealership. We had an appointment at 10:00am for them to check a small oil leak. While they worked on the truck, we had breakfast at Perkins Restaurant. It turned out that the drain plug was just a little loose - our first minor problem - hooray! After we left the Ford Dealership, we did some grocery shopping then got our flu shots. Next we went to downtown Sheridan and walked through some of the stores. We especially enjoyed King's Saddlery. It is famous for its saddles and ropes. Inside the store is...

Oct 7, 2010 - Another Chill Day

Today we had intended to roam around Sheridan. There are a few historic sites and a famous saddle maker, but after we had a nice lunch at a Mexican Restaurant, we decided to go back to the RV and just hang out. The food at the restaurant was very good and they had real Margaritas made from scratch and served over crushed ice in a shaker. They were truly delicious. We also found the Co-op and got some propane, but other than that we just read and relaxed.

Oct 6, 2010 - The Big Horn Mountains

Today it was sunny in Sheridan but there were clouds in the mountains. We decided to do the scenic drive through the Big Horn Mountains anyway hoping the clouds would burn off. As we headed up the mountain, we were encased in clouds with little visibility. We decided we would turn back and come another day. By the time we found a place to turn around, we were above the clouds and the sky was blue. We continued on to Burgess Junction where Hwy 14A forks off of Hwy 14. This road is not recommended for RVs and we were later to find out why....

Oct 5, 2010 - Little Big Horn National Monument

This morning we had an early lunch at a sports grill in Sheridan called Pony's. We took some pictures of downtown Sheridan which is a bustling town. There are many bronze statues around town. Two of them are in the pictures. They are life size and well done. We wondered if they would remain so nice if they were in our neck of the woods. Surely someone would deface them or steal them. After lunch we drove up to Little Big Horn National Monument. We took a back road on the way up and passed a strip coal mine which is the second largest in the...

Oct 4, 2010 - On the Road to Sheridan, Wyoming

Beginning Mileage 95908 Ending Mileage 96214 Peter D's RV Park 1105 Joe St. Sheridan, WY 82801 888-673-0597 6/9/6.5 $25(cash) First thing this morning, Sue set out for her morning walk to town. She was headed to the Post Office when what should cross the main street but a Mule Deer. Sue had to go out into the street since the deer was taking up the sidewalk, munching on some bushes in someone's yard. As Sue got closer, it became evident that there was not one but three Mule Deer, two of them inside the chain link fence. Back at the RV we...

Sep 25, 2010 - Sheridan, WY

We talked ourselves out of going back to Yellowstone on Friday. Let’s see, it was overcast and would make for bad picture taking, the northern loop couldn’t be completed because a fire had a portion closed, it is a long drive there and back before we can even start, I wanted / no make that needed to go to the grocery store, and I guess we just weren’t in the mood. Sat. we hitched up the car and took off for the town of Sheridan, WY. I think it was about 230 miles this time. Today’s terrain was what I had envisioned MT to be, rolling hills...

Crossing the Country

Sep 14, 2010 - Tuesday, Day 28

Boy did we pack a lot into today. We were at the West gate of Yellowstone at 8:00 am when the gates opened. Driving thru Yellowstone at that hour with very little traffic was stress-fee allowing us to enjoy the scenery. I was on high-alert for wild animals - hoping to see buffalo, moose, Big Horn sheep and bears. I was rewarded right away with a buffalo grazing by itself - massive. Along the drive we saw steam vents, hot pots (had to smile, reminds me of Diane's Choco Hot Pot Dessert)...and then the ultimate Old Faithful. It erupts every 90...

Aug 31, 2010 - Yellowstone/Sheridan, Wyoming

We left Yellowstone today through the East entrance and traveled to Cody, Wyoming, where we spent a few hours at the Buffalo Bill Museum. Actually, there are four museums, all under one roof (over 200,000 square feet). Dave's favorite was the Cody Firearm Museum, which has 5200 firearms on display and 4800 more in storage. Then it was on to Sheridan. Getting to Sheridan required negotiating Granite Pass (elevation 9,033 feet). There were alot of hairpin curves and speed limits ranging from 20 to 35 mph. The truck did fine (and so did Kathi)...
