Reporting in from Gillette, Wyo.

Dear long neglected readership,

No I don’t have a new post of adventures abroad. No one is sorrier about that than I.

But I am writing, and I wanted to share it with those of you who don’t have Facebook  (and perhaps drift between Vermont, Florida and Costa Rica like migratory birds).

For the next nine months I get the privilege of reporting for WyoFile, an in-depth reporting outfit focused on Wyoming. To start, they’ve posted me to Gillette, unofficial capital of Powder River Basin coal country. In a few months I’ll switch gears to cover the state legislature. Should be a trip.

Below is my first story. After reading (because you will read), scroll down to the bottom to find the option to sign up for a newsletter. WyoFile delivers new content by email every week. Roughly, I will have work in every other one of those emails.

I’ve copied the newsletter link below the article here as well, just in case. Sign up, and together we’ll learn more about Wyoming than any of us had ever planned.

Thank you all (especially the migratory birds) for the support.
