Where I’m Headed: Go West, Mama to The Hideout

by farrah on June 23, 2012 · 8 comments


The time has come! The day has arrived for me to fly off into the sunset and whistle happy trails to my family. I’m heading to The Hideout  in Shell, Wyoming today. A rancher is picking me up at my little hotel in Cody, WY on Sunday morning and taking me to the ranch.

Yes! Today! And for FIVE DAYS! (say that in slow motion…)

I haven’t been on a trip by myself for this long in years. Possibly decades. Well, at least one decade.

I’ve been planning for this trip since I found out I won it last December. Gathering the gear, working out these rusty old riding muscles- and here the time has come for it to all come together. I’m giddy.

I’ve got some good friends guest posting this week too- so please come back to check them out. All are diverse and have different things to say. HUGE thanks to my good friends Kerry (fellow twin mom) at her blog New 2 Two, the Twitter famous Bri of Don’t Forget The Small Stuff, my cousin who is new to blogging and Twitter (but you’d never guess) at Michigan Left Blog, and my ever talented friend Jen who is a non-blogger but a jack of all trades.

I’m picking the BIG WINNER from the finale of the Go West, Mama! event- with the  Country Outfitter giveaway on the 29th. I’ll be back by then and possibly writing up a round up. No pun intended. So enter if you haven’t yet. Come on. Your odds of winning are way less if you don’t enter at all!

It’s going to be interesting for sure! Can’t wait. The ‘ranchers’ (aka cowboys) pick me up at noon.
