Rudy was a world traveler. Every year he would take wonderful vacations to exotic locations. One year, he would wander around the wilderness of western Australia. The next thing you knew, he was rafting down the wild rapids of the Wisconsin River. He never got tired of his one-man adventures. That is, not until he melt Wanda, the woman of his dreams. She wished for the life of a rancher's wife in Wyoming. Now, the only time he gets away from home is when he rides to Worland, the nearest town, every other weekend.
