Cozy In Cody

We pulled up stakes last week and made the move to Cody, Wyoming.  Well, almost, we are 17 miles shy if it, but close enough, and they have a Wal-Mart.  We had a run of bad luck, first we had a tire blow out, and our pressure pro did not even make a beep.  Luckily Chuck seen the smoke almost right when it happened, so there was no damage, but I’m so disappointmented in the pressure pro, I really felt so much better having it, but no more.  It is not working at all. We were following Mac & Netters and they did not see us pull over, so bless their hearts, once they waited a while, they turned their “freight train” around and came back looking for us.

Of course we were inside Yellowstone, no cell coverage, but help arrived and we were soon on our way.  Wish it ended there, but, once we got set up in the campground, our electric was pegged out.  We had a loose wire in the plug, so it burned up the toaster oven and coffee maker.  Being it was in the cord after the surge protector was no help.  Luckily did not realize the burn-outs till the next morning so it got bad news got spread around, makes it easier that way.  Could have been a lot worse and for that we are thankful.   The campground here is very accommodating, they are letting us play cards in the one of the dining rooms at night.  So we have been having some heavy 10 penny games.  Last night we played hand and foot with Bob, Barb and Don and Suzie.  It was 1 & 1, so will have to have a play off some time.

Other than Wal-mart, we have been taking in some of the sights.  There was the miniature museum, which was huge, and free.
