The shift from almost completely domestic to lots of Japanese cars was one of the most striking differences when I moved from Michigan to Georgia years ago. I don't remember there being a Honda/Toyota/Nissan dealership anywhere around Dearborn when I was growing up, but when I moved to Georgia there were several in close proximity to where I lived. With that said, the results shown on this map are not surprising.

The air being drier makes a huge difference too. I lived in Southeastern Wyoming, which has a similar climate, and there were days when the sun was shining and it was 5 or so degrees out, but it felt great outside.

Odell, Funkwerks and Equinox are all great breweries there. I used to visit Ft. Collins once every month or so, and would usually hit up these breweries and make a stop at Wilburs to stock up on all the great brews available in CO.

Most the folks I knew when living in Wyoming just went to DIA. Then again I lived in Laramie. I'd imagine the people of Gillete, Sheridan and Cody probably go north to Billings. And while Northern and Western Wyoming are beautiful, the Laramie area is pretty desolete. It's a high dessert, and the weather is brutal. Constant strong winds, snow can happen at any time, and winters are very harsh. The cost of living is also absurdly high for what it is. But maybe he enjoys it better. Best of luck to him there. War Memorial Stadium can get rocking when it's full.
As a side note about Coach Bohl, from the few games I caught of Wyoming this year, he seemed to be running a slow tempo offense. In Laramie this makes absolutely no sense. The city sits at 7200 ft, so running tempo against an opponent that isn't acclimated to the altitude seems obvious. I didn't watch much so I may be wrong about his offense being slow, but from what I saw it didn't seem like a wise coaching decision.
