    Those goddamn nomads!

    Wiki: Vernal, unlike most Utah towns, was not settled by Mormons. Brigham Young sent a scouting party to Uintah Basin in 1861 and received word back the area was good for nothing but nomad purposes, hunting grounds for Indians and "to hold the world together." That same year, President Abraham Lincoln set the area aside as the Uintah Indian Reservation, with Captain Pardon Dodds appointed Indian agent.

    Gordon Gee fits into the academic nomad mode:

    * Earl W. Bascom - Inventor,[9] Hall of Fame rodeo cowboy, actor, international artist and sculptor [10]
    * Lane Frost - Rodeo star, attended junior high school in Vernal
    * E. Gordon Gee - Academic, has held more university presidencies (5) than any other American
    * Douglas Kent Hall - writer and photographer, Academy Award winner[11]
    * James Woods - Film and television actor

    Vernal is almost to Colorado. Not a whole lot going on out there other than a Dinosaur museum.
