7 Undeniable Things You’ll Find In Every Wyoming Home
You know, some Wyoming stereotypes are true. We’re hard workers, we’re independent, and whether we live in the city or off the grid, we’ve got some things in common. If you’ve lived here long enough, your house is sure to be home to the following items:
We don't waste our time with light beer out here. If we're drinking, it's probably whiskey, and if it's not whiskey, it's probably gin.
2. Some sort of firearm.
We love to shoot. Wyoming has more guns per capita than any other state, and we're proud of that.
3. Well worn work boots.
Almost everyone out here has a favorite brand of boots, and we'll wear them until they're talking back to us.
4. Hand-tied flies.
Whether you tie them yourself or have a relative that loves making flies, most of us have a box of them somewhere. Fishing is just part of growing up out here.
Many Wyomingites make their own jerky, but it's also easy to find in local stores, side of the road stands, and outlets across the state. Beef, bison, and elk jerky are some of the most popular.
6. Arrowheads you found on a hike.
If you spend any time out in the Wyoming wilderness, you'll find arrowheads. Kids in particular love to take them home and save them as souvenirs.
7. Some Brown & Gold
Go Pokes! If you don't have a Wyoming hoodie, are you really even from the West? Even if we didn't go to Laramie, there's a good chance we have a shirt or a sweatshirt that helps us support our University.
