Kintla Lake Day 4 – Many Glacier

We are planning to backcountry camp tomorrow but the permits are back at the Polebridge ranger station (dumb). The road back to Polebridge is infested with potholes (worst I’ve ever seen) and takes an hour or so. We decided to make a day of… Continue Reading “Kintla Lake Day 4 – Many Glacier”

Kintla Lake Day 3

Relaxing day today. Other than these Mosquitos. It’s seriously reason not to come back. I got up early this morning to watch the sunrise. I set up my video camera to do a time lapse. It’s a long sunrise around here. I set up… Continue Reading “Kintla Lake Day 3”

Kintla Lake Day 2 – Hippie Surfer Bus

Kyle got up early to fish in the Guzzie this morning. A worthy vessel: The campsite is situated right where Kintla Lake drains to Kintla River. A nice place to be. Also, Leslie discovered that there are way less mosquitos on the bridge. Today… Continue Reading “Kintla Lake Day 2 – Hippie Surfer Bus”

So I’m a little late in writing about this, but Steve and I got our hair chopped by the lovely Lindsay and her assistant Jimmy. Steve shed his greasy Jesus look and looks again like a hot teenage boy, which is my personal favorite..… Continue Reading “Haircuts and Gail”


Michel and I have spent a couple days resting at my Dad’s house Kristin (stepsis) stopped by with Layne & Lucy. Thursday night my dad grilled fresh Silver Salmon from Loon Lake. Is this fit for blog? Ryan Thielman (Putzy) stopped by for a… Continue Reading “Spokane”

Back on the Horse

I took the van into Becker Buick/GMC this morning for a regular service check. These guys were recommended by a few different people and were organized and friendly when I dropped of the van. A very different story from the New Orleans dealerships I’ve… Continue Reading “Back on the Horse”
