I've just spent 4 whole days without a computer.

Must go catch up ... but I just wanted to stop by the porch to say howdy.

You know, because it's been some years (more than I care to remember)... but I'd sort of forgotten the majesty of a real mountain range. I could just sit and stare for hours. The simple pleasures........

I'm back too ! I'm walking again and my gout is on the run. My bad bad tooth just got yanked today and I haven't felt this good in months. If anyone wants to "visit for real" My wife Katie and I just booked cabin # 5 at the Sun Canyon Lodge near Gibson Reservoir for the 13th and the 14th of July. I'll be fishing the diversion lake below Gibson and I'll have my three sit on top Cobra kayaks with me. If the weather is good and not windy I'll take them for a spin on the big Gibson Res. Peekaboo and Benny will be there too. There are two campgrounds real close and the Lodge we will be staying at has a restaurant and bar. There are horse riding trails all over that area and the entire area is amazing. The Lodge has a website and the small cabins have a microwave oven and fridge for $50.00 per night. Need to reserve now as they book up fast. Bring firewood for the big fire pit and bring a few tree-hugger toes and fingers for bait !

Sun Canyon Lodge. Oh, Yeah!! Several years ago we went camping up there, and drove up to the Lodge to go on a trail ride. First time I had been on a horse in years, but it was fun.
We were in the campground right by the stream, close to the turn-off to go up to the Lodge.
Alway meant to go back, never did.

Ahh yes, spring in central US. We will keep a watchful eye in the sky.

Just yesterday my wife was admiring the tornado record for MT. Sure looks good to us.

Thank you for the concern...

Yea Montana doesn't get many and they aren't the "monster tornadoes" that tornado alley gets.
The "porch's" support posts are real solid so we'll draw straws to see who gets to tie us all to to the columns then run to the nearest piece of farm machinery and hang on for dear life. When the tornado passes please come back and untie us all rather than laugh as we try to wriggle free while you drink all of our beer !

We used to get some big tornadoes when I lived in CO. It's pretty cool to watch them come out of the funnel clouds and go up and down. I was lucky enough to see this, without having them do any more damage than break a medium sized tree in our yard when I was little.

A biker friend of mine that lives in Oklahoma had an F4 tornado destroy his entire property, except the shed his heritage softail was stored in. He swears that God wants him on a motorcycle!

I don't remember ever seeing a tornado in MT. Lots of dust devils and thunderstorms though. (I love storms)
