  • Welcome to the RunnerDuck Blog

    We use to publish a monthly newsletter but decided to step up and do a blog instead. Just like our newsletter we will update this "newsletter" about once a month.
    Each month we bring you news from our little town of Coupeville, WA and happenings around the island we live on.
    We hope you enjoy our blog and we'd encourage you to sign up for email notification since it doesn't update all that frequently.
    Welcome

Day 40 – Not Much

Yesterday we drove about 460 miles west driving right through Nebraska and into Wyoming. If you’ve ever driven I-80 west through Nebraska you know that there’s not much to see.

It’s flat with lots of farming and open roads. To help pass the time we’ve been listening to a really good book, “The Runaway Jury”, on our MP3 player.

After hours of driving we started to see a little change in the typography.

 

Well not much. We stopped in Dix, Wyoming to get some gas. It’s a tiny town of 230 people with a gas station and grain elevator.

We still were in the heat!

Marilyn managed to snap a picture of this cool sculpture along the highway as we drove through Coyote, Wyoming. We called it “Howling Coyote”.

We arrived at Wyo Campground in Cheyenne, Wyoming around 5:30 and set up camp.

It’s not the greatest of places but it is convenient. What that means in “camper speak” is that’s it’s close to the highway with lots of traffic noise. The guy who runs the place is a really nice guy and very helpful. We had dinner at the truck stop next door and called it a day. As the sun went down we noticed that there could be some adverse weather in our future.

Fortunately noting developed from this and we had a nice night.

Today we travel further west and will stay in either Rawlings or Laramie. Thunder storms are forecast for the next several days so it could get interesting, stay tuned.
