Invading Wyoming

Welcome to Wyoming!
The first thing that one notices driving into Wyoming is that things are a little bit different here.  The Wyoming speed limit on its open roads is 80 mile per hour.  Only Wyoming, Utah, and Idaho have an 80 mph speed limit -- some parts of rural Texas have an 85 mph limit.

America Invades invaded Casper Wyoming which is known as the "Oil City".  In America Invades we mention that Wyoming's national guard is partnered with Tunisia.  Yes, we invaded Tunisia in 1942 during World War II capturing Rommel's Africa Corps and thousand of Italian soldiers.

"Americans brought war of a different kind in 1976 to Tunisia again when George Lucas filmed parts of Episode IV: A New Hope in Tunisia. Star Wars would return to film parts of Episodes I and II in the Tunisian desert as well."

The America Invades tour stopped in Casper Wyoming this week.  We found the locals friendly and welcoming.  We didn't even mind the snow that greeted us in early October.
