Yellowstone

The four days spent in Cheyenne, Wyoming were completely spontaneous (like much of this trip) after pretty much being forced to stay by the locals.

The first rest stop when you enter Wyoming from Fort Collins, Colo. via Interstate 25.

It just so happen to be the time of year for the town’s annual Frontier Days, which was described as the largest rodeo in the world by several individuals there. Now I truly understand the saying “this isn’t my first rodeo.” No matter how many of those things you see depicted in cartoons and television shows, there’s absolutely nothing like seeing one in person…for numerous reasons that are not the subject of this article. Despite the fact some moron backed into my generator and ripped up its outer casing at a truck stop in Cheyenne, Frontier Days was pretty awesome…and pretty country! read more

Quick Blurb: Oregon/Washington Border

Oregon Ducks

First things I noticed when crossing into Oregon from Washington via Interstate 5: 1) You are immediately in Portland; 2) the first two exits off the freeway are MLK Street and Rosa Parks Avenue; 3) I stopped to get gas and a guy walked up to my driver side window. I immediately just handed him a dollar, thinking he was homeless or something. But in Oregon, its ILLEGAL to pump your own gas. All stations are full service. He was the pump attendant.

Also Wal-Marts use paper bags in Multnomah County, Oregon. read more
