Custer State Park, Tatanka, Needles Highway – wow … just wow!!! (and the problems with hitting “publish” before you’re ready to post)

Oops, part of my post got published before I was ready. Dang-nabbit (that's a way to express displeasure that I reconnected with in South Dakota). Somehow or other as I was saving this draft, the post went ahead and published and I wasn't done yet. Good grief ... what a novice error to make. I… Continue reading Custer State Park, Tatanka, Needles Highway – wow … just wow!!! (and the problems with hitting “publish” before you’re ready to post)

Jackalope Herd and Custer SD in the Black Hills

Henry our jackalope is in heaven. He went out with some of his long lost buddies last night and had a grand old time.  He stayed out a little too late last night and paid for it this morning. But he was excited to see his old buddies. Jackalopes don't keep track of years like… Continue reading Jackalope Herd and Custer SD in the Black Hills

Yellowstone, Buffalo vs Bison, Greybull, WY and National Dog Day.

We left Island Park bright and early Saturday morning (7:00 AM to be exact), gassed up and started our trip to Greybull WY where we plan to spend one night on our way to the Black Hills in SD. We've been to Yellowstone before but went toward the south end of the park and continued… Continue reading Yellowstone, Buffalo vs Bison, Greybull, WY and National Dog Day.

Island Park, ID – 33 mile Main Street, Mesa Falls and a long lost friend

Yup, we're in Island Park, ID visiting a dear, dear friend from my home town in Sioux Falls, SD. Funny story, we both grew up in SD, both went to the same high school (go Washington Warriors!!!) but didn't actually meet until we were in college and living next door to each other in the… Continue reading Island Park, ID – 33 mile Main Street, Mesa Falls and a long lost friend

4th of July Pass, the Oasis Bordello and Museum, the Silver Dollar Saloon, and Butte MT. (NSFW)

We're on the road again and left Liberty Lake this morning about 7:00 AM. It's always such a pretty drive going across the northern Idaho panhandle with Lake Couer D'Alene, the 4th of July Pass, Lookout Pass and driving into Montana.   So far the 4th of July pass was the highest at 3049 feet… Continue reading 4th of July Pass, the Oasis Bordello and Museum, the Silver Dollar Saloon, and Butte MT.

Liberty Lake, WA – We’re here, we’re watching the solar eclipse and Henry will never be the same.

We left bright and early Sunday morning at 4:55 AM to be exact, and we were on the road.  400 miles almost exactly and we got to Liberty Lake by noon.  It took us seven hours to go 402 miles with one gas stop and one rest stop. Liberty Lake Regional Park is a beautiful… Continue reading Liberty Lake, WA – We’re here, we’re watching the solar eclipse and Henry will never be the same.

Making a list, checking it twice – the blessing (and the curse) of checklists

So, we are feverishly getting ready for our epic road trip, which means my "checklisting nerdiness" is in full glory (or perhaps rearing it's ugly head is a better description).  I've got 4 checklists that I'm working with, and that doesn't include what I'm doing for meal planning and grocery shopping. I've got a Packing… Continue reading Making a list, checking it twice – the blessing (and the curse) of checklists

We’re going where? and when? How are we getting there? Planning our adventure.

Not sure if I've mentioned it or not, but we're getting ready to go on an epic (at least epic for us) road trip. We're looking at being gone at least 38 days and perhaps 40 or more depending on how things are going. And we're hoping we've got all of the kinks worked out… Continue reading We’re going where? and when? How are we getting there? Planning our adventure.

How about a portable AC for Fido? (MacGuyver would be proud!)

It happens to everyone, you're driving down the road and you see that sign with a big arrow!  "Stop here to see the largest ball of twine in the world."  How can you pass that up?  Of course, you have to stop. OH NO!!! As you pull up, you see a sign that says "no… Continue reading How about a portable AC for Fido? (MacGuyver would be proud!)
