We got ourselves situated at the KOA campsite. It is still early enough that we rested a little then drove to the downtown area to check it out. It is late Sunday afternoon, the downtown area is almost empty of people. I am surprised as they are supposed to be holding their annual "Jubilee Days". What we found out is that there was a rodeo in the morning and as it gets closer to the end of the week there are more events held.
While in Cheyenne yesterday, we met a man who told us we had to have a beer at the Buckhorn Bar in Laramie. We found the Buckhorn Bar, it is in an old historical building. It has a huge wood carved bar with "tons" of stuffed heads and animals that have been hunted and donated to the bar
The current bartender also told us that her father has an elk he hunted on the wall of the bar. It is a huge "trophy", I think this is what these poor stuffed animals are called. We finished our beers and headed out to find a place to eat. We didn't find one as all the businesses were closed. I am sure if we would have asked someone we would have found a place, but we decided to go back to the campsite to make a late dinner.
While I was cooking (pasta tonight) Manuel and Chuckie were outside. A neighbor came by and started talking to Manuel. He and his wife (Jerry and Billy Ogden) are from Arkansas headed to Oregon to see their daughter perform in an annual event held in Oregon, BI-Mart Williamette Country Music Festival
It was a very nice visit, but it is now late and both of us are heading out tomorrow and need to get some rest. By the way, they have a huge A class beautiful rig. Huge!
