Went Gillette to get some parts today. With high school finals rodeo it like a city o campers and horse trailers around the Camplex .In town lot of out of state plates, in Albertsons watching the chaperones (Dad) with their daughters , it was like a 20 foot invisible chain, that's as far away as they could get away.......

I hear ya, Jody. Same here with the Sheridan WYO rodeo. It's the most hailed event in Sheridan and WOW! The people.....some of the stores have signs "Closed Friday due to traffic congestion." :shock: Sheridan isn't able to handle so many people. The streets are poorly
laid out, some places where you need a traffic light, there isn't one.

So we just stayed at home for the duration. Tonight is the last night.

Sheridan does put on a good rodeo, if you can find a seat. :D

My son qualified for the finals in Gillette, but he decided against going so he could work. I couldn't argue with that.

Sounds like someone instilled a work ethic. The boy must surely have a good mother. What event?

Bulls. Another reason my heart wasn't broke. I think if he'd have qualified in saddle bronc he might have been more inclined to go, as that is where his interest lies.

Bareback is a tough occupation, I think bull riding is easier on the body.

My biggest fear is my cows noticing how tall and green my not the least bit understanding neighbors wheat field looks early in the morning .
