Jeffrey city WY and Mrs happy
« on: September 04, 2009, 02:08:02 pm »
Hi guys,

I wonder if anyone else has had the same run in with Mrs happy at the Jeffrey city motel and split rock bar+ cafe.

I'm usually not too difficult about my motel room in these small towns but mushrooms growing in the carpet was a little much for me. I judging by her reaction she hates cyclists and has had similar things happen before.

I figure you are lucky that there is a motel of any sort open in Jeffrey City.  It is pretty much a ghost town.  Tumble weeds and antelope were more numerous on the main street than vehicles.  That said I didn't stay there so I don't know how bad it was.

We camped in the (pretty much abandoned) Lions Club pavilion.  It was OK with me.

I don't remember a motel in that city.
At the cafe, there was a young boy helping his family.
Grandma was sitting in a chair with an oxygen tank.
This was about three years ago.
But the boy acted as our waiter, and was a great kid.
He cleaned up on tips with our group.
I do remember Jeffery City as a near ghost town. 
Still had a post office.

Remember the bad or touchy experiences sometimes become our best memories.

Wow!  She's still around?!?  I stayed there 9 years ago.  The motel wasn't that bad then, and the woman was not outgoing, but not mean.  And the food at the bar/cafe was o.k. for what it was.  Spent the evening at the bar talking with a one-legged woman about such things as the taste of antelope meat.  Her husband had come to the town to work in the mines.  They were promised jobs for life.  But the end of cold war caused the bottom to fall out of the uranium market and the town started to dry up.
