Wonderful Wyoming
If you’ve been keeping up with your FMCA emails, you’ve probably noticed the buzz about FMCA’s 103rd International Convention & RV Expo, which will take place July 7 through 10 in Gillette, Wyoming. CAM-PLEX Multi-Event Facilities will host this RV party. It boasts 1,500-plus permanent RV sites with 30- and 50-amp hookups and a plethora of buildings nicely suited for exhibits, seminars, entertainment, meetings, and social events.
If you’re not from around there, why not consider making "The Spirit Of Wyoming” convention a destination event? Before or after — or both — you can tour a magical land of history and natural beauty.
To whet your Wyoming whistle, this month we’re sharing info about some of the things to see and do in the Cowboy State. Even if you aren’t able to attend the Gillette convention, learn about the fascinating places you can explore!
The FMCA Team
FMCA's New Health Insurance Partner - LIG Solutions

"I wasn’t too sure about this but decided to try. I had nothing to lose. We have to buy our own insurance since it wasn’t part of the pension package. The Marketplace turned us down for no reason. I figured it was because we moved. We bought very expensive private insurance. I am saving $860/month on our health insurance plus getting an accident & critical event rider! Thank you, FMCA!"

FMCA Adventure
Set A Course For Wyoming
When you think of Wyoming, what comes to mind? Wide-open spaces, alpine peaks, and abundant wildlife? Fishing, hiking, and other outdoor pursuits? American Indian and cowboy culture? Fossils and hot springs? You’d be correct on all counts.
Encompassing more than 97,800 square miles, it’s the 10th-largest state in the Union. That means a lot to explore and experience.
The National Park Service operates some of Wyoming’s most popular sites. Among them: Yellowstone National Park, with its deep canyons and steaming geysers. Strange, striking Devils Tower, America’s first national monument. Grand Teton National Park, known for spectacular mountains and sparkling lakes.
Fossils, including dinosaur bones, are plentiful in Wyoming. Visit Fossil Butte National Monument or the University of Wyoming Geological Museum, where a 75-foot-long Apatosaurus dinosaur skeleton presides over the exhibit hall.
Dinosaurs also rule at the Wyoming Dinosaur Center in Thermopolis. The town is a hot spot — literally — with its healing mineral waters in Hot Springs State Park. The state’s official bison herd roams the park, too.
Throughout the state, acquaint yourself with the lifestyles, celebrations, and traditions of countless American Indian tribes. Explore Bighorn Medicine Wheel, the Vore Buffalo Jump, and the Wind River Indian Reservation. At the reservation, visitors can learn about tribal cultures and histories in the Northern Arapaho Experience Room and the Wind River Wild Horse Sanctuary.
Lest we forget, Wyoming is cowboy land! In Cody, tour the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. The town backs up its reputation as the Rodeo Capital Of The World with nightly rodeos in summer. Cheyenne Frontier Days, in Cheyenne, is famous as the world’s largest outdoor rodeo and Western celebration.
So much to do! Learn more from the Wyoming Office Of Tourism.
