Every True Wyomingite Has Had These 7 Bizarre Experiences At Least Once
Every true Wyomingite has lived a life that’s a lot different than most Americans. Out here in the high prairie and Rocky Mountains, life is unique. Here are a few things that may have happened to you that were stranger than fiction.
1. Almost hit something that
wasn't a pronghorn.
Was that a bison? Could it have been an elk? Sure, we dodge pronghorn and mule deer all the time, but it's the bigger game that throw us off.
2. Misinterpreted a dress code.
Sorry, I wear my barn boots everywhere, and kind of forgot that Aunt Millie's funeral was a mud-free event.
3. Almost got blown off a mountain... or a sidewalk.
The sidewalk thing is a lot less scary than almost getting blown off the trail when you're a few hundred feet up in the air.
4. Ridden into town.
This isn't nearly as common as it used to be, but it's still something that happens in Wyoming. If you tried to ride a horse into town in New Jersey, I'm pretty sure you'd get pulled over!
5. Traveled to a place where people lock their doors.
I actually never had a key to my first apartment and didn't really think twice about it. It's hard to get into the habit of locking your doors when you've moved to a place where you have to!
6. Assumed out-of-state restaurants would have elk or bison on the menu.
Apparently you have to really search for "exotic game" when you're on the east coast. In Wyoming, they're kind of a given.
7. Changed up your fishing plans because of unexpected weather.
Just because it snows doesn't mean the trip is off! That just means we need to break out the ice fishing gear earlier than we thought.
