Wyoming Bound

If all has gone well we are on our way to yet another vacation (it's good to be retired!). This time it's our annual pilgrimage to a ranch nestled in the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains in north-central Wyoming.

Cloud Peak and the Bighorn Mountains

It's how we decompress. No television, no cell phone service, very limited Internet access - nothing to do but ride horses, hike, fish, eat, drink, sleep, and talk.

We have a number of friends that come here the same time each year, so it's also a reunion of sorts. We look forward to catching up with each other in a more in-depth manner than Facebook posts. It's a way to reconnect with friends, family, and a way of life that is rapidly vanishing.

The plan is to fly into Billings, Montana via Denver. We rent a car in Billings and drive from there to the ranch - about a two hour drive.

On the way we pass by the Little Bighorn Battlefield where George Armstrong Custer's 7th Calvary was wiped out. It is IMO one of the best national parks in America. If you ever get the chance I highly recommend a visit.

Fear not, loyal readers. I will have something here daily for your entertainment, education, and edification. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy yourself as much as I plan on enjoying myself...

We lived in Billings and Casper for a number of years, and loved both cities. And I worked as an oil field truck driver and field supervisor in both states for over 23 years. We would love to go back, but age is against us for doing that.
