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...

North To Alaska 2013

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...

Alaska Bound 2013

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. While here we visited the Little Big Horn battle field in Montana and lucked out as it was the day of celebration for the Indians. Custer got his butt kicked on June 25th and 26th 1876 at this site. We spent the day here got a free lunch on the National Park and saw some great sights. We spent a day in downtown Sheridan visiting some of the local breweries and museums. Today we traveled back into the Big Horn Mountains and Hiked into the...

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...

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...
