Some early morning confusion when Stephanie disappeared so Dave made breakfast. Stephanie reappeared and it all worked out.

The gunfighter.
Watch out for this guy, he won’t take crap from anyone!

Dave took care of some business at a local Starbucks (3/4 tiles) over lunch. We talked to Don, a former rodeo star who told us jokes and we got to eavesdrop on his phone call.

One of many great sculptures in Sheridan!

We saw another dude who looked like a cowboy and another with a hairstyle. We discuss Craigslist dating.

Nice kitty... nice kitty...

Scrabble scores – Stephanie won… again… by 50 points.

We went to our gig at a retirement center but had some trouble finding it. GPS has nothing on Stephanie, the ultimate navigator.

Where Buffalo Bill stayed!

It was a good gig, loads of fun. The activities director there was shorter than Stephanie. Dave’s jokes fell flat, people were singing along, people danced, and we got asked back.

I told you to watch out!

It looked like rain so we went back to the campsite and closed up the tent.

Then we walked around downtown Sheridan and took pictures of the amazing sculptures. Sheridan is filthy with sculptures.

It was drizzling but not unpleasant. We visited the Sheridan Inn where Buffalo Bill lived for a while. We took a look at an old steam locomotive and we noticed that the original train depot is for sale.

Dave is wondering how hard it would be to get that out of there.

We kept running into a horse drawn wagon giving rides to a distillery. Driving back to the campsite we stopped at a liquor store and got Dave a 4-pack of chocolate stout. There were adventures being planned outside the liquor store.

Back to the KOA where Stephanie met a drunk guy and a guy with big boobs. While Dave cooked dinner Stephanie talked to the drunk from Alaska who was in town to spring his buddy from jail .

I think we met these guys at the KOA.

After dinner Dave played guitar and a woman came by with a Jack Russell terrier, Maxwell, and invited us for coffee in the morning.

So hard to resist…

This KOA has deteriorated, we give it 2/5 tiles. Restroom smells, wifi is spotty, poor showers, no rec-room.

So many great sculptures!
