Bill's Special Birthday

Sheridan, Wyoming
Peter D's RV Park

Today is Bill's birthday and to celebrate he wanted to tour the Trails End Mansion in Sheridan.  We've been to this town before when we met up with friends going to the Escapade in Gillette a few years ago.  We toured some places then, but didn't get to this mansion.

The location was up on a hill of over three acres overlooking the town.

The third floor was a huge ballroom.

90% of all of the furnishings were original.  The Trail End was the name John Kendricks put on the mansion because he planned on staying there the rest of his life.

After we finished touring the mansion, Bill wanted to walk around town.  Most of the brick buildings are very old, but well kept.  

There are bronzes on nearly every corner.  

Bill wanted to visit the Sheridan Inn where Buffalo Bill Cody was once the proprietor.  Queen Victoria gave him this bar and had it sent over from England.  

I asked Barbara when we checked in at Peter
D's where was a good place for a birthday dinner.  She suggested the Wyoming Rib and Chop House.

It was the best meal we've had since we started the Alaska adventure.  Guess what Bill ordered?  Jambalaya. Betty Bernard would be telling her RVers to go here.  The gumbo soup was excellent too.  Our appetizer of fried green tomatoes had crab and blue cheese.  They gave Bill a free dessert for his birthday.  

They took our photo and presented it to us in a nice folder with the date and birthday occasion. 

It was a wonderful day but the drive home wasn't so great. I commented that we were having a hard time with the heat and it was only 78 degrees.  It seems like the air conditioning on the truck died again.  Last summer we had it replaced in Ohio and once again in Indiana.   

Now the question should we try and get it repaired tomorrow before we head to Casper?

Turtle Safely........


  1. Happy birthday Bill. Looks like you had a wonderful day.
    Oh boy. Sorry to read about the air. Hope it is an easy fix.

  2. Happy Birthday Bill and here is wishing you many many more.
    If you've had the AC replaced and are still having problems, it sounds more like a leak in the system. A good shop should be able to first locate the Leak and if necessary replace the defective part quite easily.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. Happy Birthday Bill!!! What a fun day!! I just love visiting those old mansions.
