Thanks for everyone's help, it paints a clearer picture of life in NW Wyoming. Yes, Florida is very different than it was when I was a kid, that was several million northern visitors who forgot to go home to Michigan ago.

After Hurricane Andrew in 2001 the building codes have changed here drastically and the homes are much more wind resistant adding to building costs. However Sunsprit is correct, you're never far from several thousand board feet of any kind of lumber or any other building material here. Building costs are pretty low and you can work year round even in the frigid 50 degree winter weather. Now I understand why everything is so expensive!!

I would love to build a solar/wind powered home near Sheridan or Cody but I'm questioning whether it's even possible now without breaking the bank.

It has been a while since anyone has been on this thread (2014). I am curious to know if WestRose ever moved to Wyoming. Are they happy? What do any of you think of Greybull?

Greybull is very small, and not much going on there. If you're trying to hide from the mafia, it's probably not a bad place to look.

lol.

Might want to re-think that part about the mafia, though.

Modern day Sicilians are NO strangers to the concept of 'adaptation', 'diversification' or 'blending in'.

That said, Greybull is still a nice, quiet place to dissappear from the world...but it CAN get hot there, during the summer. Luckily, relief can be found just an hour away, up Shell Canyon, into the mountains.

Really miss my summers spent in cowcamp up there...

Thank you both for replying. Not hiding nor running from the mafia. I'm not that exciting I guess. I was born in Colorado. Moved to sunny liberal Ca. as a child. Although a beautiful place to live with many wonderful people, I personally am having a very difficult time with the "anything goes", way of life out here. I am a traditionalist, a conservative, a person of live and let live but don't tread on me. Grey Bull and the surrounding area sounds like utopia to me. I have lived in the Central Valley of California (farm land) for 30 years. The summer heat of 100 - 105 is not uncommon. Remember a couple of 112 days too. Ltdumbear - Are you talking about this type of heat? Thank you again for taking your time to respond.

Not Lt D, but know it can get that hot. And depending on where your house is, it can be more humid than most of Wyoming.

Still, if you lived in the central valley country and liked that, the basin country around Greybull may suit you well. Not a bad place at all.

Agreed. Temps can easily settle-in at around 100+, especially towards the dog-days of summer...and the heat won't go anywhere until fall starts creeping in, where nights get 'rilly-chilly'.


On an completely un-related note, one of my most favorite things about that particular region of the 'inner' Big Horn Basin is that there's ALOT of opportunity to dig for dinosaur fossils...in fact there is a section right at the base of the western foothills of the Mountain where a very large and significant-dig has revealed the remains of several hundred (rough-estimation) dinosaurs who washed-up alongside what appears to be a giant Redwood Tree...


...Redwoods clearly cannot exist in 'present-day' Wyoming...


There's also a UW-sponsored/maintained visitors site where multiple tracks can be seen, of three-toed (and other types) of Dinosaurs travelled along what must've been the shoreline of an ancient ocean or a large, expansive lake-side, a very long time ago...possibly something that was connected to what is present-day Great Salt Lake, in Utah.


I remember finding numerous fossilized sea-shells (scallops, clams, conch-looking) far up inside a cattle-trail going up into the mountains where very few people ever go, except guys like me who work on top, riding forest-permit...or maybe a hunter or two; I'm guessing I found those shells at an altitude of no less than 9000+ ft.


I dunno...it just struck me as both odd and fascinating at the same time.

Hello, only yesterday a fella asked me to compare Cody to Greybull and he was wearing a Christmas Vacation T shirt , you know the movie with Chevy Chase?


my comparison was using the Vacation movies, If Cody is Clark Griswold then Greybull is Cousin Eddie and that is not an insult, I would have no problem spending a week in elk camp with Cousin Eddie.


I would probably do my own cooking though.


We go to Greybull also for fossils, fall hunting, sometimes just to get away from the tourists in summer over near us.


small town, limited shopping , not bad dining, some really great traditional stores have closed but the super market has upgraded, Lisa's is still open and the river access is better than ever.


much milder winters than we get, especially this year, and it's not far to cody, or billings if you need more options.
