    Cool Damn cold

    So, My fiance' / Girlfriend lives there.... I do spend a great deal of time there.

    The winter is hard, cold, and long... unless the wind blows.. then it is pure hell frozen over. - 28 this week, no wind chill included. And the wind does blow most of the time..

    Bird wise, there are no pheasants around Laramie. It is a drive to Torrington where they have some area to hunt.. they also have a yearly deal around Glendo. Up North towards Montanna, closer to Cody, there are birds, actually a lot .. Was up there with the in-laws.. birds were running around all over.. that area is a farming area, with good habitat.

    The school is a great though.. the town is a nice size.. and Cheyenne is 45 miles away where a person can get just about anything they need.. Ft. Collins CO is 60 miles to the South. There is a great set of mountains between Cheyenne and Laramie - Medicine Bow National Forest - they have miles and miles of trails, camping, climbing, and some fishing just 7 miles from Laramie. Big game everywhere in Wyoming.... and the beauty is, there are no people, no crowds, no waiting in line... If you like the outdoors, Wyoming is a great place... May move there myself, Colorado has gotten to be a zoo...

    Just got back, and you guys weren't kidding, seems like a sportsman's paradise. Locals said that there isn't much for pheasants but there is quite a bit of grouse around. No body seemed to be bird hunters, but I believe that is due to the great big game hunting. I'm looking forward to the next fall and hoping to be chasing some critters.

    Thanks
    Chris
