I know of other new-to-Wyoming families in similar contemplation. Your choices matter. It would be sad to see an exodus of educated, childrearing age adults from Wyoming as a result of poor lawmaking,

here some call that went to the Sheriff's Office .
" but they keep plowing the field and it been bare and blowing drit in my house all summer" about thier neighbor summer fallowing the property next to a subdivision
" the cows lay down next to the fence on our propety line, they stink and they bring flys with them "
This one was called into 911, " they crossing the road and dropping $#i* on the road then spreading it next to our huse... we can't get the smell out of our house" the farmer did get a ticket for the mud he was tracking across the road. But one side of the field got covered better then the other
"Its 1 AM AND THE FARMERS BALING HAY NEXT TO MY HOUSE AND WE CAN'T SLEEP"


"They shot my dog" to which the Justus of The Peace said "well are you going to pay for the lambs your dog killed" A look of shock and horror, and "but they shot my dog"

then there is tresspass
"I can walk and wade between the high water marks"

hunting season
" but we were told we could shot any ranfe sheep that were still on the forest this time of year."

distance
" But it 30 miles to the County Satellite office that just too far to drive to get plates" so they drive 40 and get them in the next county seat.

"if we just had a walmart"
"if we just had a Kmart"
"but it a 120 miles to see that specialist"

list some of your favorites....

"We didn't know anyone owned these cows." When I made them catch their dog so it would stop chasing cattle.

From people found camping on private land right near the only stock tank and windmill for a really far distance, after they were told they were keeping livestock and wildlife from drinking: "Oh, they weren't scared, they came up where they could see us and stood there."

After Nebraska put a call on water and a reservoir had lowered "They really need to put more water at the north end of the lake." Her hubby looked like he wanted to crawl in a hole.

"What do the cows eat?" from a relative who had never been west, while she was looking at untold acres of cured native grasses.

"Do kids go to school here?"

"Is that a real Indian?"

"Does anyone have internet here?" Not sure what they'd been paying their hotel, meal and gasoline bills with. Would have guessed credit or debit cards. That should have given them a bit of a clue.

Another urban relative waking me up in the middle of the night "Listen!" Me "I don't hear anything." Her "I know! It's so creepy!" She was a lot of fun and game for everything.

Early on with City Data, one of the users had brought his wife to Wyoming for a road trip vacation. They had crossed cattle guards and come to one that was simply painted on the highway and she thought that was stupid and wouldn't work. He explained to her that because the cattle got used to cattle guards, that the painted one worked just as well. She said she kind of understood.

A day or two later, they were driving past some of our big snow fence barrier's that you see. She asked what that was for. Of course, they are 100 ft long, then a gap, then another 100 ft long. He told her that the cattle got used to fences and as a result you didn't have to waste money building a continuous fence, you could leave gaps and the cattle still wouldn't get out. She said, "Oh, like the pained cattle guards, yeah, that makes sense." and she was serious.

at the end of an irrigation season, I had a new neighbor tell me that it was "the law" that I had to "drain the ditch" of all the standing water in it because it was a breeding ground for mosquitoes and he was going to sue me if any of his valuable horses (all mini show horses) got West Nile virus from the mosquitoes. Never mind that the creek on the other side of his house was also standing water pools as it dried up on the surface at the time. He wasn't going to vaccinate his horses and he just knew that any mosquito in the area had to have come from the irrigation ditch.

What stood out was his insistence that his string of old mini show horses were all worth $100,000 each. I'd just adopted/rescued a string of 60 mini's of comparable breed lines because the owner had abandoned them due to the costs of keeping them and almost no interest in them in the region except as lawn ornaments.

When I lived in WY several times people would ask what those "bleachers" (aka snow fences) were for and we'd tell them they were for watching the Indian wars. LOL
