The Heftis have landed in Lander, Wyoming! After much deliberation, soul-searching, school / town research, and early morning coffee chats poolside Chez Porthole Place (VA), we decided that this little town at the foot of the Wind River Mountains will be the best place for us. The fact that we have never been here does not deter us; we’ve moved to many places before sight-unseen, I guess it’s kind of our MO. But this move feels different, like it will be a more permanent one – we hope it will be. We are looking forward to setting down some roots.
Things we notice right away that make us feel at home:
Free RV dump / water fill-up for campers.
The majestic Wind River mountains rising up just beyond the edge of town.
“The wave” from nearly every driver.
Tevas, cowboys boots, messy hair, trucker hats, raggedy clothes, bikes, backpacks, dirty trucks, and lots of smiles.
Cliffs for climbing, trails for biking and running.
Deer meandering down main street.
