Real Cowboys Prefer the Colorado Range Tent

Living the cowboy dream

Who hasn’t dreamed of being a cowboy? I know I have, and so have my brothers. The lifestyle of the cowboy is filled with outlaws, romance, danger, the occasional shoot out at the OK Corral, solitude and of course a love of this great land. There is also whiskey and tobacco spitting. Okay, some of those things are probably an invention, or at least an exaggeration, of the silver screen, not that it wasn’t once true, but today’s cowboy is most likely not heading out to a duel in the middle of the dirt road at high noon.

The working cowboy

Cowboys still work and maintain the land to this day. But it is more than cowboy hats, cooking a stew over an open fire and riding off into the sunset. It is hard labor, long hours and often quite dangerous. As beautiful as the American West is, the terrain is rough and unpredictable and so is the weather. Days are spent in the middle of this magnificent landscape, with no signs of urbanization or towns on the horizon, just miles and miles of wild terrain, mountains and desert. I imagine this brings about a great sense of peace and solitude. Not to mention grueling physical labor. Being far from civilization, you need to have the best working equipment with you, to make sure that you can be protected from wildlife and weather, while tending to the land.
