From the Road

We are sending some hats for the Ranchero's this May, and that’s always a fun group of riders whom only get together to compare notes once a year. We are involved in the Pikes Peak riders on the third week of June. Good luck to Mike S. on the ride, as it might be a little rainy in the mountains. Speaking of rain, Oh my gosh, Billings and Montana are setting records. We had 3 inches in the first week of May and 2 inches on one day this week. Our poor friends at the Miles city bucking horse sale, 9 inches in about one week. What a test for our hats. If you have never been you should go as it is a huge world famous outdoor Rodeo and Bucking horse event in, Miles City, Montana.
I am on the way to the World Famous Mule Days in Bishop, California. Look it up as they have a parade that is about two hours long, and twenty mule teams and the best mules in rodeo. I encourage everyone to go. It’s a little town about 4 hours outside of Reno, with a huge event. Jorge and I will be there helping fit our customers. Customers from all over the planet come to this event. It starts Wed. May 25th and goes through the 30th. Then we will be back home in Billings. We have a couple of special events in June. Go to our web site and be sure to look at our new video. Send us some favorite pictures for our postcards. Our customers love real pictures.
We are putting a new steamer and custom shop in the ranch at Rock Creek. What a place. We also are scheduling an event for August at our new outlet in California. I will update you on this event in St. Helena, California. Range Merchantile, operated by Susan and Debbie Gantz, is a great upscale store that will be stocking and steaming our hats.
