I have driven through on 80 many times, but never spent much time there, and never in the winter.

Bitter, bitter cold and windy. Star Valley is at around 6,000 feet above sea level I believe... That's in the Valley...

Way to go Wyoming! My guess is that should this legislation actually go through that Wyoming will suddenly have a surge in population!
Ten people moving to Wyoming would be a surge in population.

Oh., come now! Wyoming does have 4 seasons.


However, they are winter, winter, winter and highway construction!

Areas around Rock Springs are pretty nice. But if you are up around Casper and your dog runs away, after 3 days you can still see him. (No trees!)

I don't know if I could live where there are no trees. I do favor places where trees grow. Preferably big ones.

And I gots me a new gun today! Ha-he-hah!

Well, SORT of new. Kinda.

Stopped by a new shop/ shooting range after work to say hi to an old friend who is working there. Shelves and racks are danged near BARE, shooting range is PACKED. We were talking, and looking over the sparse offerings of firearms that the ravaging herd of locusts (new buyers) had left, when I looked down in the showcase. Hmmmm........

S&W. Revolver. Nickel plate. Flat latch. 4 inch bbl- but SMALL.

Later on it would become known as a Model 33- but when this one was made, S&W did not have model numbers. It is an I frame- smaller than the J framed Chief's Special. Square butt, 5 shot, caliber .38 S&W.

It looks to have been shot less than a box of ammo. The knurling on the hammer and trigger are still sharp enough to shred the tips of your fingers.

Copy of my C&R in my wallet, checkbook in other pocket. 2 minutes later, while the other folks are still filling out their 4473's, I am DONE!

Pics tommorrow- can't find the cable to hook Droid to this computer!

*Insert fiendish laughter here*
