Well, tomorrow is the big day. I know that everyone is excited about their arrival in Dodge City. Dodge City has thrown out the welcome matt and as it was so many years ago, when the cowboys from Texas finally arrived in town...There will be a party in Dodge City, tonight.....Yeeeehaaaaw!!!.

Dodge City has a fascinating history that is intertwined with the history of the Western Trail. To get a good grasp of how the two related over the years, I had an opportunity to interview Jim Sherer, the Director of the Kansas Heritage Center regarding Dodge City:

Great interview! I added this blogsite to my sidebar blogroll, and my city slicker readers just love it. Just watched a small parade of chuck wagons go by at lunch, headed for the stockyards here in Fort Worth, and the Red Stegall Cowboy Gathering. Should be fun, but I would rather be on the trail with ya'll!
