Last time I was up through that part of Wyoming, I had just bought a new 72 Cheyenne and went for a drive. That's been a day or two.

Re: how to open a door in wyoming

Aw, just open the west window and let the wind blow the east door open...

I spend a lot of time in Rock Springs. Too much. I did 28 months building your new Eastside Elementary School. We do lots of work up there. I should have gone up there today on an inspection of our current job, but I found some paperwork to do in the office, instead.

thank God for paper work.

I felt like death slightly warmed over Tuesday. I felt it coming on Monday afternoon and saw the weather forecast. I promptly moved 3 vehicles in the shop so i could spend all Tuesday inside and not have to open any doors. Then I stayed nice and close to Mr. Coffee

When driving to Denver some years back to visit the daughter and grandchildren we would make Rock Springs our motel stops..just curious Pritch did ya lose a lot of building material or tools to thieves? (years of 1993-2004) We were told after a few stops there that the town was bad with drugees.. Never did we have our car broke into while making these stops..

Re: how to open a door in wyoming

No, not to much. It's better than it was. One of my first jobs out of high school was working in a coal mine there, winter of 76 or so, and it was the wild west back then. It seems to get better every year, but I haven't been up there in a while. There's fewer jobs in the extraction industries now, so maybe it's back sliding some.
