First Trip to Laramie!

Post by AggieVoice » October 15th, 2018, 12:54 pm

I've heard it's just downright miserable, but this is the year to go. Sunny and 55 on Saturday and not a lot of wind. Noon kickoff. Killer team. I'm heading to Laramie! Who else is heading to cheer on our Ags? Also, is there anything worthwhile to do or eat in Laramie, or should I just get to the game and leave immediately after?

Remember, there's a pretty girl behind every tree in Laramie!

That never gets old.

I've never heard that one before? But then again, there are no trees in Laramie, and maybe that's the joke?

Enjoy the drive from Uduh to Laramie... it's like driving through a nuclear testing grounds... for miles on end. It might make the drive from SLC to Reno look like a scenic route. Hope you like Antelope, steady hill climes, rocks & more rocks. Oh, and don't laugh when you get into Laramie and see trailer homes everywhere you look... no joking, what's up with that? It's like it wasn't punishment enough that you have to live in Laramie, but you have to live in a single-wide too? That's sad. :joking:

All in all there is as much to do in Laramie as there is in Logan they do have some bars that serve mixed drinks. I believe the Buckhorn is one of them, also a great steak house that is out of town ask and people can direct you to it.

Good point, I always forget that Jackson/Star Valley is in Wyo, to me it just seems like North-Northern Utah/East-Eastern Iderhoe :lol:

I love Wyoming's uniforms. That yellow and brown shouldn't look good but somehow it works. The SD Padres used to wear those colors but it wasn't a good look. Somehow Arizona State doesn't work either.


I can see how these decisions might seem overwhelming for some posters, football is complex. It can seem like a single decision doesn't matter because there are too many variables......That wasn't the case with Wake Forest

I think their colors are some of THE WORST in the country. At least Navy Blue and White looks good anytime, looks sharp.That Brown and Yellow is IMO Azz ugly!!

The side benefit of it being a nuclear testing ground is that I have never seen a state trooper in the State of Wyoming, having driven that stretch of I-80 dozens of times when living in Loveland, CO.

Our uni's in the UNLV game were my favorite combination. We looked great.

The Wind Rivers, Absarokas, Gros Ventres, Tetons, Big Horns, and 95% of Yellowstone are all in Wyoming. Some of my favorite places on earth.....

Southern WY, on the other hand, isn’t much to write home about.

Agreed, I also really liked the all white with blue helmets at byu.
We haven't seen any pewter yet this season and honestly I don't miss it.
As for Laramie I think it's just in BFE.

I prefer no pewter at all. Not a school color and always looked dingy and dirty to me. I like the all blues and all whites but I did like the UNLV combo. Looked like a throwback uniform in some ways and I liked it for Homecoming.

I agree, the uniforms from the UNLV definitely felt like a throwback

My friend and I met some Wyo police on a road trip hitchhiking from Logan to Larime. There were some pretty serious threats made (we had long hair, and they said we were vagrants,). Somehow we were able to stay out of jail (or a beating). We were taken in the back of a police cruiser to the freeway and told to be gone in an hour....or else.......We luckily got a ride right away and were gone.

Soon after that incident, it came out that police were taking hitchhikers out of town and throwing them in the river. Only reason it ever made news was that one of the kids drowned.

Poor Laramie, they help with hundreds of wildfires throughout out the Rockies, but nobody calls it Firefighting Capitol of the West. Yeah they bang one ewe, and all of a sudden they’re the Sheep Humping Capitol of the West.

I’ll be there with 5 others. Hoping for a good Aggie turnout as I’m expecting a close game than most. It is their Homecoming so it should be a full place I’d expect.

Not going to find a better weekend to go to Laramie, weather looks great.

Hope to see a lot of you there!

Will never forget a game in Laramie in 1972. We drove out from Boston interviewing at Missouri and CSU. USU-WYO game on a beautiful sunny, shirt-sleeve afternoon in late-October. After Aggie win we head to Logan. From Rock Springs on we hit a blizzard all the way into Logan via Bear Lake and Logan canyon, arriving about 3:00 AM.. Three day visit and then head back to Boston. Another blizzard just before Laramie. should have stayed in Cheyenne but we pushed on at 15 MPH.to Sidney Nebraska. Freeway closed, we got the last room in a rickety old hotel - third floor and no elevator with 6 rooms sharing one bathroom. At 6:00 AM I saw the snow plow heading east for the freeway. We jumped in the car and followed it to Grand Island - on the way passing by perhaps 50 cars off the freeway with people who had to spend the night in their cars.

Have a nice day!

Lucky you!! My last ticket was on that stretch of road. I finished my last final of the fall quarter at DU around 3:30 and we decided to pack up and head to Utah for the Christmas break that night rather than wait until the next day. I got nailed going like 12 over at around 11pm

They may live in single wides, but they also support their University with the savings from their housing.

Also, the man and sheep on the bike looks even funnier when you haven't scrolled up completely and don't see the motorcycle.

I drove the lonely highways of southern and central Wyoming last summer. I only saw one cop that didn't even blink when I was going 10 over (after slowing down). I was more likely to hit an antelope than be pulled over by a cop. I figure if I get a ticket I just won't go back to that state. Shouldn't be an issue.
