#2....One of the Directors just happens to hold a very high ranking position in the George SOROS Fund Management LLC

#3....A major Contributor to this organization is the WWFund. (Do your homework on them & you will be shocked as to what percentage of the monies donated to them by the 'general public" actually ends up benefiting Wildlife!!)

Please click on the two "links" given above in the respective quoted posts.


The "Ranchers wary of group" link provides some idea as to the threat to the ranching community in Montana (particularily N/E MT). One point you may want to check-out: "The price(s) submitted to certain ranchers and/or their heirs, for their ranches and land.....are so far below their appraised value that it is an insult to the present owners."

The other link to the organization's web site will give you some idea as to the "lack of association" any of the principals have to the Ranching Community in the State of Montana.

The above opinions and judgments are solely mine based on the research I have done as a private individual.

Last week we had several days in the 60's.....our White Christmas is gone...and then, over the weekend, it dropped 30 degrees. Denver got a bit of snow and we thought we might be on the edge of it, but we didn't get any.........just a few flakes during the day...

The news said that CO. has about 73% of normal for snowpak....

I am kinda sad that MT. has 1 million now, too, and I don't even live there......

Latest addition to the team and sheep wagon. A chuck wagon to be pulled behind the sheep wagon. When we travel this summer I will be pulling a sheep wagon behind my 4 wheeler (miniature). When we camp, I will be able to hook onto this with my 4 wheeler and pull it in to town so we can load with supplies.

This green trailer weighs less then 300 lbs. It's an antique ice cream wagon. All of the doors seal tight. Inside, the shelves are actually sliding shelves so you can pull them out to get at things in back. Previous owner added lights to it. Tires are new. The only thing we'll have to do to it is extend the hitch out about 4 feet so that it can connect to the sheep wagon better. We measured the front shelf and it will hold 4, 5 gallon containers. Will probably put 1 gas can for the generator on the sheepwagon and 3 water jugs for drinking and cooking water. Cost? We got it for $250.

The side door you see, is a shelf on bearings. We are going to store a charcoal grill and a propane grill in there. When fully extended, it will stick out far enough so that we can cook right on the shelf. The propane grill is one I picked up (I posted it some time back) that's a Coleman all in one. Slow cooker, 2 burner stove, grill, griddle, and pot.

Hey Elk...................

Thr addition of the "little Green Trailer" sounds like it will be a real benefit to your daily operations while traveling.................I do have a couple of questions:

Am understanding this correctly?:......The Sheep Wagon will be towing the 4-Wheeler, which in turn will be towing the Green Trailer? (Three-in-a-row?)

If my assumption is correct........when the 4-Wheeler engine (is not running towing the Green Trailer), what is the power source for the lights on the Green Trailer......which I assume will be hooked into a "hazard-light" type system that will "blink off & on" every 2 seconds or so?
I shudder to think that some distracted driver might come up on you from behind & not realize until the last second that you are only going about 3 to 4 mph .

And 3rd: (and I don't mean to pry)......Where will your projected travels this summer be taking you??

And to those that appreciated my comments re the American Prairie Foundation.....thanks for allowing me to voice my assesment.

Team of horse, pulling sheep wagon, pulling green trailer with orange triangle for slow moving vehicle.

4 wheeler pulling miniature sheep wagon with full set of lights, and yellow strobes and sign that says, "Horse drawn wagon ahead".

When we get to a camping spot and set up, I will unhook small sheepwagon, hook up chuckwagon, connect trailer lights, remove orange triangle and head in to town at 50 mph. It's difficult to shop for grocery's with a team of horse setting out side. No place to tie them up, plus takes up massive amounts of space. So we'll set up camp and then run back in for supplies.

Next trip will be this summer and we're headed for the Black Hills. 2-3 months. The whole idea of me building the small sheepwagon and pull behind the 4 wheeler is so I could hang back and flag traffic to keep it from running up on the big wagon, around the bend.

On the entire trip to Alaska, they only had 2 times that people run up on the Wagon causing a dangerous situation. 1) a teenager on his cell phone wasn't paying attention that the wagon was going so slow. 2) an idiot truck driver, who could see what was going on, but still wanted to get a run at the next hill, while a motorhome was coming toward them. Trucker never even backed off the throttle. Mike put the wagon in a steep ditch on one side of the Alaskan Highway, while the motorhome with family inside put it in the ditch on the other side of the road. Truck never even slowed down, just kept on going. But those were the only two. But the Black Hills will be a lot more curves and a lot more hills.

That's good. They should make it a state law.
