Into Wyoming

Gilette, WY

We left Hermosa, SD this morning at 10:15, got on I90 west into

We drove only 161 miles before getting to Gilette at 1:15.    This puts us a little half way to our desination of Ten Sleep, Wy. where we are expected tomorrow.

Ten Sleep is 40 miles from the nearest grocery store and 120 miles from the closest WalMart.  That being the case, we decided to really stock up on groceries, vitamins and get some cash.

We found a good spot where we parked for the night at the worlds largest RV park chain:

Being hungry as it was past lunchtime and before dropping lots of money at the above campgrounds store, we went next store to Perkins.  No pancakes for us but the senior pork chop meal suited me just fine.  Len had the senior turkey dinner.  Gotta love those old people prices.

Here it is only 4:30 and we are surrounded by 6 other "campers".  This must be a very popular campground indeed.

Ten Sleep is such an odd name for a city. Do you know any of the background? How it got its name?

Giggling at the world's largest RV campground chain! Love it! 120 miles to that? Wow. Hope you do stock up!
