SO YOU WANT TO BE A COW­BOY?

Friday - - My Working Life -

Dana and his crew take sev­eral groups through the year, start­ing with the July cat­tle drive from July 1-8, de­part­ing and re­turn­ing to Sheri­dan, Wy­oming (which has flights from Den­ver In­ter­na­tional). The six-day/six-night trip cov­ers 72km to 89km on horse­back, trail­ing mother cows and their calves to their sum­mer range. The 10-per­son crew has around 15 to 20 guests on the drive, sleep­ing in can­vas-wall tents and tepee tents, and eat­ing cow­boy dishes cooked in cast-iron skil­lets, Dutch ovens or at a pit bar­be­cue. Other drives in­clude two open-range drives in Au­gust, and a cat­tle drive in Septem­ber. Any­one over the age of 12 – re­gard­less of horse­man­ship – can go on the trips. Prices start at $2,700 (Dh9,990). dou­bler­after.com
