RV there yet? Day 6–Cody, Wyoming

WP_20160627_002Quietly left the RV before 7 for a nice bike-ride around Cody. Got lots of ‘farmer waves’.  Friendly people around these parts.  Back at the ranch we gathered the troops for a day of sightseeing.  We spent the morning/afternoon in the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.  This is an amazing complex housing 5 separate museums, all with a single entry fee.  One of the better museum experiences we have had.  Highlights – the Raptor experience where we learned about the superpowers of some birds of prey; the Buffalo Bill museum, very comprehensive and great artifacts from the man for whom this town was named.  Also had some great baked beans and biscuits from the old west chuck wagon outside.

Post lunch we browsed the shops for a few hours.  Ryan bought another buffalo and Harry bought a rifle!

We settled in on the Irma porch for some beers, wings and ice cream as we watched folks get ready for the famous Cody shootout.

Buffalo Bill, Wild Bill Hickock and Annie Oakley and an assembly of villains hammed it up for a pantomime battle with extremely loud guns and explosions.  Photo ops after where Ryan met Buffalo Bill while holding his 2 recently acquired buffalo.  Did I mention Ryan’s buffalo obsession?

After a dinner of burgers and fries (we are in beef country apparently) at Buckin’ Burgers we strolled back to the RV park for some welcome downtime.  Lauren and Ryan struck there ‘I’m a Tipi’ pose on the way.

Day 6 Verdict:  We could defo spend a few more days in Cody.  Lots to do here and lots to spend money on if you are a closet cowboy.  We’ll be back.
