You can contact me at the new address using the Contact J. Dawg form.  I'm still traveling at the same pace and posting new articles.  I hope you continue to follow my travels and journeys at jdawgjourneys.com.

Cowboy Hats - Facts, Folklore, and Fables

Cowboy Hat
I love wearing cowboy hats.  Partly it's a guy thing, but they're super functional for keeping the sun off my face.  And they make a pretty good fashion statement.  I've collected a few on my travels and seem to get a new one each time I go out west.  While wearing a baseball hat may be a fashion standard in New England during the summer months, cowboy hats are a year round standard in certain parts of the west.  Out in the rural areas of states like Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming where the sun is intense year round, cowboy hats are much more prevalent than baseball hats.
