Ready for some wide-open spaces?
Howdy folks, welcome to episode 173 of the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia Podcast. I’m your host, Brian Rollins and this week we’re strolling through Wyoming.
As always, we’ve got three rounds of ten questions each. If you’re new to the show, welcome. You can find rules and score cards at DorkyGeekyNerdy.com along with a bunch of other cool stuff.
Looks like the horses are ready, so let’s ride.
The Dorky Round
The Geeky Round
9. What western TV show running from 1959 to 1963 and starring John Smith and Robert Fuller was named for a Wyoming town?
The Nerdy Round
1. What Wyoming town is home to an annual economic symposium and is a location in the horror game, The Last of Us?
4. What young man's beating, torture, and death outside of Laramie, WY in 1998 raised awareness about hate crimes against LGBTQ persons?
5. What 1902 novel by Owen Wister, set in Wyoming, has been adapted into 5 movies and 249-episode TV series?
Put the horses back in the stable because we are done. Everyone have a good time? I hope so. Wyoming is not too far from where I live and I’ve spent a lot of time there. Most of it in Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Park. If you haven’t visited Wyoming, I highly recommend it. We’ve given them some grief about how few people live there, but honestly, that’s part of the state’s charm. It’s big, beautiful, and quiet.
Here are few bonus facts about Wyoming:
- It’s the 44th state, having joined the Union in 1890
- It’s the 10th largest state with 97,814 square miles
- The highest point in Wyoming is Gannett Peak at 13,809 ft. That’s 9000 feet taller than last week’s state, West Virginia also known as the Mountain State
We’ll be back again next week with thirty more trivia questions about another US state. Here’s your clue for next week:
What is the only US state to grow tea?
I’m a big tea drinker, so this was a cool fact for me to learn. I’ll see you back here next Wednesday.
