I am currently in Lolo...spending time with Kit and enjoying the local area. Last weekend we took a drive through Yellowstone Park and saw bison, elk, lots of raptors and water birds and a pair of wolves as we drove out toward West Yellowstone. Two nights of camping and Kit was finally able to give me a tour of the site of her two season stint as a "FredHead" (Fred Harvey employee) at Mammoth Hot Springs Inn. On the way home we had a nice dip in Bozeman Hot Springs...

What an amazing place and so close to Missoula.

I made a visit to the bus and sidecar rig where I have them stored and they are resolutely waiting a duty call which will be a while yet....they weathered the winter just fine although I found that a family of mice took up residence in the bus....not too much damage. Deja-vu from the old GMC bus in Alaska when I came back to a litter of squirrel babies that I took to the local elementary school for the kids to nurse, raise and release back into the wild...comical....

My next move after the 14th of June and a doctor appointment, is to head out in the Chinooky for the coast, perhaps a quick visit with my sons and families and a couple of friends. Then south for a niece's wedding in San Jose, CA.

After the wedding I will head east through Tor C to drop Dina off with a friend and then on to San Antonio, TX for a huge family reunion. Kit will fly down to the wedding and then over to San Antonio and we will be enjoying those things together. Since I have the dog and don't like to fly, I will drive.

After the festivities I will head back west and north to end up back in the Pacific Northwest for the rest of the summer.....

Be well all,

I love my state.....

As poor as my chosen home state of new Mexico is, we have not had to shut down the highway safety rest areas nor our state parks.

Even though we share a border with Mexico, we haven't started profiling Hispanics. For that I am grateful.

Did I mention that I love this state?

About Me

My photo
well, I am a 70 year old married man with a couple of sons and 4 grand kids and am currently wending my way around the planet in any way that I find interests me. I am a retired mechanic, certified motorcycle nut, ride a sidecar rig and practice living in the moment. I am a 31 year friend of Bill and Bob and have lived a life beyond my wildest dreams.
