The above pic is a chain of gas stations. in the Rockies area. Its name is ironic since the ratio of men to women in Colorado cities averages to be 8 to 1. Is that ironic? I used one of these as a scene setting in my 2002 homemade comedy movie Family Dies. I played all parts with cheap wigs except for Jeff Davis and Jaime Pittman. I shot the thing while driving from California to Mississippi to Colorado to California to Las Vegas and back to California. Ask me sometime at home and I might embarassingly show it on my computer.
We drove to Steamboat yesterday evening and ate at a cook-it-yourself steak house. Kris and I split a buffalo steak and it was good though it tasted like a prime but lean ribeye beef. There is nothing like the flavor of a beef ribeye with fat though I hear bear steaks are the best. They had no bear steaks.
We could not find the Walmart so we drove another 40 miles to the isolated town of Craig and Walmart camped there. When we are between destinations we like the free Walmart RV camping. At midnight, after reading in my biography of Earnest Hemingway, I sat on the side door steps in the cool midnight air, ate a clear Solo cup of cereal and watched the ebb and flow of Craig Colorado nightlife... not as exciting as us nearly hitting a mule deer buck between towns last night.
We are already in Wyoming in high desert-like environs, making our way to Jackson Hole and the Tetons. We may even hop up to Yellowstone for a drive-thru for some bear burgers and fries!
