Well, as of this afternoon we are one step closer to having our “going to Alaska” rig. We purchased a slide in truck camper made by S&S of Kalispell, MT. It is an older one—we didn’t want to spend a lot of money until we see if all three of us can survive that small of space! Now for a truck—anyone know of a good, used heavy duty truck for sale?? We left it over in Bozeman—I didn’t think we should tie it to the top of the Cadillac—and will pick it up in a couple weeks.
Michael finished up his cattle guard project—over the weekend he built a 20 foot cattle guard for a neighboring ranch which operates as a corporate retreat. Today he removed the old cattle guard and installed the new—yep, Larry, the cowboy got to operate equipment again, the backhoe this time.
Another gray, cold and breezy day in Montana—the grass may be greening but the mountains sure look wintery!!
Chicken fajitas for lunch with the watermelon and cantaloupe we purchased at Costco yesterday—both melons were delicious—I love watermelon, could almost eat my weight in it. I often wonder if my love for watermelon has anything to do with the fact my grandfather raised acres of watermelons in the hot Arkansas summers—once picked the watermelons were piled under the old pecan tree in the yard. People would stop to buy watermelons, Grandpa took some to town to sell and we kids could eat as many as we could hold!!
