A cowboy in your mind, I jumped at the chance to be involved in a weeklong cattle drive on Stroh Ranch вЂ“ 44,000 acres in southern Colorado which was house with a 3,000 mind of sites like menchats Longhorn cattle. The outfitter whom place it all together ensured our cowboy experience would be as authentic possible вЂ“ we consumed from the chuckwagon, slept on a lawn, and bathed in the river. Additional care had been taken to ensure no motorized vehicles did actually ruin the impression. We were stepping back in time and residing the life of a cowboy in the 1880s.
Our group of twenty вЂњcity slickersвЂќ quickly fell into the routine that is daily. We were jolted awake each at five a.m. by the clanging of the c kвЂ™s iron triangle morning. A hearty morning meal of bacon and eggs and pancakes or biscuits, washed straight down with strong cowboy coffee, had been served at six and now we had been saddled and away on the range by seven l king for wily Longhorns.
