I am in Sheridan, Wyoming today and tomorrow doing a two day farm tax seminar in conjunction with Washburn University. Many of you may remember that I was in the Sheridan area last year for the annual Farm Financial Standards Council annual meeting. The Sheridan Rodeo is in town both last year and this.
If you have never been in Sheridan, I would strongly suggest you need to make a visit. The area is surrounded by the Bighorn Mountains and I think this is one of the most scenic parts of the country that you can live in (although a bit remote). We are teaching at the Sheridan College which is mostly funded by a grant from Edward Whitney who settled in the area just after Sheridan was founded. He was a banker who invested in numerous ranches in the area and left his legacy for education in Wyoming.
We have about 50 in attendance today with another 40 or so attending via the web (that is becoming more common all the time).
This post has nothing to do with income taxes, but it is good to learn about other things once in a while (even for us tax geeks).
