Recent Trip Pics

Just got back from this trip:

Fun time down in Wyoming!
We also met up with RS-Wagon and family in Laramie.
They took the time to show us some sites, and were very gracious hosts.

Here's right at the start of our trip, a little ways east of Livingston, MT on I-90.
Yep...hit the 40,000 mile mark. [;)]

We picked up a passenger just outside Sheridan, WY sometime right after sunset.
Didn't find it till sometime the next day. LOL!!
I was wondering why people were doing a double take when they looked at the front of the car. [eek]
Heck, I thought they were just admiring all the bugs that had taken up residence.
My wife said, "Don't you remember when something ran in front of the car, and didn't come out the other side?"
Well, I guess we now know what it was.

Poor little guy, hung in there for quite a while! [rofl]
My first official "road kill".

Running along Hwy487 between Casper and Laramie....7,000'+ in elevation the whole trip.
You think your A/C kills the performance at sea level...try it up here! [:(]

And...on the way home through Grand Teton (then Yellowstone) National Parks.
This is just north of Jackson Hole, WY.
Beautiful day!

And back at home safe and sound...NOT!
Sustained a bit of an injury somewhere between Laramie and Cheyenne. [mad]
It actually still worked as the bulb was intact, and the reflector wasn't damaged.
New one on the way...should be here by the end of the week.

I've heard that laminex helps prevent those fogs from breaking, not a bad investment for $25 from FocusSport [thumb] Pics look good, those are some cool looking mountains!

For this trip, since we were coming up from Laramie, we came in through the south gate at the north end of Grand Teton Nat Park.

Now did you take the east entrance through the crazyest twistys ever at 9000 feet above sea level?
We have done that...on a different trip:

Nice pictures. I have been to Laramie twice. I have a brother who is attending Wyotech. I usually go down to Fort Collins, CO. More to do there. What brought you to Laramie?

Shield, from Dupli-Color, provides temporary spray-on protection for your vehicle where bugs and road grime can do damage. It’s ideal for the front end, rear quarter panel and rocker panels. Spray on Shield as a temporary bra for long road trips, quick mud flaps or as a bug guard. Shield sprays on easily and dries in less than a minute. And best of all, it stays on until you wash it off. You can power wash it off or use soap and water. Rain, snow or moisture in the air won’t affect it. This product leaves no residue on a vehicle’s paint. Give your vehicle the protection that it deserves with Shield.

No rooms in Cheyenne. [:(]
That, and Laramie is where RS-Wagon resides, so it was an easy hookup to get together with them. [;)]
BTW, his wagon is now gone, and replaced with an 07 (or is it 06) SE-5speed. [:D]

Thanks for the info...have you ever used the "Shield"?
Heck, for mud (Mud Bogging the Bronco) we always used Pam.
^^^Worked great!
...Or...
Are you just giving me heck about all the bugs that are impailed on the front end? [eek] [:p]

================================
I love the "frog ownage"...see new avatar. [:D]
