About Discover Dubois Photo by Bill Sincavage Discover Dubois is the creation of Wind River Remote Works, a group of individuals devoted to the future of remote work in Dubois WY. We are a chapter of Grow Remote and a subcommittee of Dubois DRIVE. Contact Us Our History Way back in 1992, after Dubois had suffered a catastrophic blow with the closure of its sawmill, an unpublished report by a part-time resident predicted a glowing future for the town. “Economic trends and technological development are facilitating moves to isolated, remote locations such as the Dubois area,” wrote retired University of Missouri economics professor John C. Murdock, “by making possible a broadening range of possibilities to meet the economic imperative of supportive income away from the locations where such income is generated.” In simpler terms, he predicted a future for remote work. Since then, two industries important to the town — tourism and handicrafts businesses — have been increasingly supported by the Internet. Bolstered by the pioneering efforts of the leadership of our local Internet provider, DTE, (now re-branded as Range) in promoting the expansion of broadband to rural areas, a growing number of remote workers have found it both possible and very desirable to relocate to the Dubois area..
