The Cheyenne Frontier Days in Cheyenne, Wyoming is one of the coolest events on the planet. It has been going for 125 years and is also the “World’s Largest Outdoor Rodeo.”
One of my favorite things at Cheyenne is the chuckwagon cooking competition. Not so much the competition itself, but the chuckwagons and all the great people that own, run, and help out with those wagons.
I met more great people in Cheyenne in 2021. Adam Hanger from Middlebrook, Virginia and his family and friends brought their chuckwagon (The Shenandoah) all the way from Middlebrook, Virginia to compete for the third time at the 2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days. I had a great conversation with Adam about why they travel all the way out to Cheyenne with their chuckwagon and parts of that conversation will be in a future article, along with photos, about the chuckwagons at Cheyenne.
If you haven’t attended Cheyenne Frontier Days, put it on your bucket list!
