Rye Patch, Nevada

One of the highlights of this Summer has been our travel adventures.

When the Western Folklife Center in Elko, Nevada (home of the world famous Cowboy Poetry Gathering) wrote us about carrying our soaps, I was beside myself with excitement. Here was this place that I had been fantasizing about going to... and they wanted our products!! It was one of those celebrity moments.

It also happened to be around the Perseid Meteor Shower, so, with multiple kinds of stars in our eyes, we decided to set out across the fair state of Nevada and make our way to Elko.

Colfax, California at Dusk

When I used to talk about moving to a small town, people would tell me it sounded romantic, but probably was going to drive me crazy as soon as I moved.

I'm happy to report that counter to those people's opinion, moving to a little town has been absolutely amazing!

Since we tend to get the same questions / hear the same assumptions, I figured I'd make a micro-FAQ about Colfax life:
