What part of Wyoming are you in?

Where you are will say a lot about the types of things and people you will find around you.

Not really sure who created this Map/Meme, but someone decided to divide it by types of people and jobs.

Looking at this map you might get the idea that they are not entirely wrong.

They might have exaggerated a bit - maybe.

Let's start with the bottom right corner of the map, around Laramie County and Cheyenne.

That's not wrong but nothing is said about the state capital.

For Cheyenne, I would have put Lawyers and Lobbyists.

Or how about "Northern Colorado."

As for the city of Laramie, outlined in red is HIPPIES!

Again, not wrong.

More to the west you'll see Red Desert -  REDNECKS!

There are lots of Rednecks on this map.

Bottom left of the map - CRAZIES!

Not sure what is meant by "CRAZIES" but, again, not entirely wrong.

Moving up the west side of Wyoming we see MORMONS, RICH PEOPLE, TOURIST!

For Teton County, they could have put NEW CALIFORNIA.

The center of the state apparently has lots of "REDNECKS."

Ranching Rednecks, Mountain Rednecks, and Oilfield Rednecks.

The east side of Wyoming has, apparently, Mining Rednecks and Farming Rednecks.

So - what have we learned here?

Someone thinks that Wyoming is filled with REDNECKS!

It might look like that to anyone who has never taken a close look at the state.

They might want to consider the difference between Rednecks and Roughnecks.

What about Indians? There are plenty of those in central Wyoming.

There needs to be a few circles pointing out where the HERMITS are. There are a lot of hermits in Wyoming. They are in the least populated areas and, actually, they don't want to be pointed out, so... nevermind.

Reading The Past - Chugwater Wyoming Newspaper

These pages of the old Chugwter Wyoming newspaper show us coverage of the region from back in the 1940s.

There was little local news, other than the war.

But what was published at the time was important to the people of the area.

It was, in most case, the only news they had from outside their little ranch or town.

Best Wyoming Sports Moments From WyoPreps

If you're a fan of Wyoming high school sports, that probably means that you've played it, or have kids involved in local sports.

You'll also know the names of Frank Gambino and David Settle, who cover these local teams on your local radio stations across the state, and on WyoPreps, both the website and the app.

Here is a collection of the most memorable sports moments from WyoPreps from the past 12 months. From 2022 into 2023.

These photos were sent to WyoPeps by parents.

They were selected simply because they capture a memorable moment.
