Cody, Wyoming

Home of the world famous Cody Rodeo, 7 days a week. No, we didn’t go. Actually, we really wanted to but it was blowing rain sideways so we opted for a hotel instead of camping. We got beers and buffalo burgers at "The Irma". The Irma was Buffalo Bill’s hotel that he built as a stepping stone for rich folk coming out to see Yellowstone in the late 1800s. Pretty cool old place and nice little town. We also washed the car for the first time… wow 2500+ miles of bug encrusted dirt is tough to get off… (Gary, you would have been proud of our wash job at the local Flagship). Since we were staying in a motor lodge type place (clean and nice despite the image evoked), it gave us a chance to take everything out of the car, and reset. After living out of the back of your car for a few weeks, even the most well designed system tends to need a reset every now and then. (we also had to dry out the carpet in the back a bit because we had a small water spill). We got up early and headed to Yellowstone in Northwest Wyoming.

Yes, I'm very proud indeed. Brennan thinks the hyundai goes faster when it's clean. Hope that didn't contribute to your ticket! Be safe, we miss you!
