QuoteI cast my vote for the vicinity of Jeffrey CityJeffrey City was (is?) so memorably godawful and anything improving that would spoil it. I think a book could be written of Jeffrey City stories. I've no recollection of a church there but I did stay in the dismal motel before it closed, incredibly expensive, $70+, for a freezing room, broke TV and a leaking toilet.
My suggestion was a bit tongue in cheek. Not long before the motel closed, a cyclist reported having mushrooms growing out of his carpet. I stayed there in '00 with a Menonite couple who was crossing the country on a Bike Friday tandem. Only motel I have stayed in that was cash only. I had to lean into the wind while walking up the road to the cafe. Later that evening I sat at the bar and talked with a woman about the town's history and the effect the crash of the uranium market in the early 80s had on the town. A guy who looked to be a ranch hand came into the bar. He was wasted. He bought beer to go and drove off in his pickup.
