The Great Migration

Lots of people are following my lead in moving West it seems (I know - I'm such a trendsetter!), including two friends in particular: Erin and Paco.

I met up with Erin and her mom as they passed through Laramie this morning on their way to California.

I gave them a quick and dirty driving tour of the town before heading to the Overland for breakfast. This was of course followed by coffee at Coal Creek and a very condensed tour of the UW campus.

The most significant stop for them, I'm sure, was a peep at the historic Buckhorn Bar at 10 a.m.

We walked in and all the towns serious imbibers, which the Buck is known to harbor, looked up at us expectantly as if they'd found new drinking buddies.

I had to let them know that wasn't quite the nip we were looking for to get our morning going.

Yep, just call me the official greeter for all wagon trains West!

Up next - Paco in the coming week.

I'm itching to get back out there too; hopefully by my next birthday (think I can swing it?). It would be like a gift to myself. Aaaaaawwwww!! :D
