You folks are high level Airstreamers. You know how to make traveling an adventure. I really enjoy your photos of the towns you visit. The old theaters are kinda dying out. Too many electronics make movie watching convenient, but not as much fun.

Lucy is still camped in Cody. We are laying over here for a couple of more days due to high winds in the area. Lucy is not particularly fond of high winds. We are hoping that things will settle down by Saturday.

We took a ride into town this afternoon to ship some Moose Tags and pick up a few things at Wal-Mart. We had a nice dinner with our friend, Larry at the ranch. We settled into Lucy for the night.

Today's pictures include:

- dirt road off of the ranch.
- Nice old travel trailer still on duty.
- RV's overnighting at Wal-Mart.
- Cassie's Bar, in Cody since 1922.
- Stampede Park sign.
- Stampede Park in Cody, where they rodeo every night in the summer.
- Lucy up on the ridge at the ranch.
- Friendly Mule down the road.

The smoke here has gotten worse over the last couple of days. It's like a constant haze over the mountains. The fire smoke smell is very faint, but the haze adversely affects the scenery.

The wind are high here today. We hope to depart from Cody tomorrow and head down toward Moab. It should be clearer down that way.

Thank you for your kind comments, David. I don't think that anyone has ever referred to us as high end anything before.

We love going through the small towns. They are the fabric that has made America great. It is sad to see that some of them seem to be waning. I have thought that the Internet and e-commerce might bring some of them back, but that doesn't seem to be happening. I am just glad that we have had this opportunity to visit the small towns and feel their attraction.

In many of these towns the movie theatre was the crown jewel of the community. It was the primary gathering place, especially in the days before television.

I have really enjoy seeking out these monuments to the past. Some are maintained in pristine condition while others are a mere shell of their glorious past. I find them all very interesting and sometimes sad.

Brian

The smoke here in Hamilton, MT, near the Idaho border is very bad. At least it's only smoke and not the fires.

Ah, don't count on going south and getting out of the smoke! We've been in the stuff for several days now in northern New Mexico!

Thanks for the heads up. I guess that it's something that we are just going to have to deal with.

You are a first class Airstreamer. You folks know how to travel as it was envisioned by most of us. Interstate RV parks is not the ideal way, but sometimes necessary. Besides, who knows more about where to find moose to tag!

I have a friend who loves to photograph fire stations, old and new. Everytime we traveled on business, off we go to find the fire station. I like to walk the streets to get a feel for the community. Walking, or hiking, really gives a guy time to get to know it. And I like to make eye contact with folks I pass by. I keep a tally of how may "good mornings" or "hellos" are returned.

Colorado has been wetter than normal. Less chance of fire here. I hope this el nino sea change will finally bring some relief to our parched friends out west. Drought and wild fires are very bad. While traveling to the Oregon Coast two years ago we were detoured around the LoLo Canyon fire south of Missoula, MT.

We called a campground for a reservation and the lady said you got to be kidding, we are being evacuated! Here is a photo of the smoke plume. Don't drive into one of those!

We are going to try our best to stay way clear of the fires. We were thinking about going up into Montana and do some exploring. We have now decided that Utah is a better choice.

Lucy is still camped on our friends' ranch. We spent most of the day Helping our friend, Larry, with some computer and wifi issues.

We took a run into town this afternoon to ship some Moose Tags, and pick up some steaks for dinner.

We came back to the ranch late this afternoon and grilled some steaks.

We plan to break camp tomorrow and start heading toward Moab, Utah. It has been a great visit in Cody, and Lucy really liked her own private campground.

We have gotten showers and have settled into Lucy for the night.

Today's pictures:

- Lucy lined up with Fred for hook-up.
- Ranch sunset.
- Baby snake.
- Larry and SuEllyn on the porch.
- Lucy in her spot.
- The sun gone down over the mountain.

Angry Moose tags

I'm probably the only guy in the forum that doesn't know what a Moose Tag is?

They are little zip-tie thingies to wrap around old-school audio/video cables and such. From their website:

"Organize your TV, VCR, DVD, sound system and
power cables behind your home entertainment
center"

...although in this day and age most people have ditched the VCR and stereo equipment (as well as home entertainment centers). People today (if they use anything besides a smart TV) usually have a single blu-ray player and everything is a simple single HDMI cable these days...or streamed via bluetooth or wi-fi.

In the days of big home stereo systems and DVD players with 3 component cables and 2 audio cables I could see these being really useful, however. I used to go mad messing with all those cables. But nowadays, the world has gone pretty much wireless...and single HDMI cables are simple to keep straight.

If I ever hook up the old system with the turntable, reel-to-reel, cassette decks, minidisc recorder, tuner, a/v switcher, dbx noise reduction, svhs vcr, dvd recorder, d-vhs recorder, 5 disc cd changer, preamp, equalizer, and power amp then I'm going to need a ton of moosetags!
