Well, Hello again

It has been ages since I just sat down to the computer and wrote on this blog. We have been somewhat busy but also I was caught up on the spirit of doing things instead of writing about things, make sense?
We had a wonderful time in Gillette, WY with the thousands of other campers. There are often prototypes of new motor homes and campers. This one has a deck...always a useful feature

It was nice to meet others who share our lifestyle and that understand the gas /diesel prices do not run our lives. Yes they are high, but life goes on and the fun is still out there, ya just got to pick and choose a little more selectively now....Sermon over.
We were parked in this huge area called a Camplex.Behind us was a rodeo arena. While we were there the 4H clubs and the FFA were having a mini- rodeo as a trial for those that one day want to rodeo. It is sort of akin to T_ball and Baseball, ya know?While Erwin attended Red Cross disaster classes, I watched young ones learn how to do barrel racing and roping. Those horses are mighty big and powerful, but the kids seem to love it. Instead of having them rope steers and tie them, they use goats. Too funny.
Just like other things kids do, Dads do a lot of the set up.
Things we have noticed so far about the West:
  Pride in their state...very clean, no litter
  Kids play outside
  Lots of horses! and antelope (supposed to be more antelope than people in Gillette)
  Recreational choice for young teens has got to do with horses.
  Friendly people always making sure you have seen their favorite place.
  Cannot cook..some of the worst meals we have had have been in WY (except for those I cooked!)
