Conrad is very conservative and most folks are very kind and friendly although just like any other small town it can be a bit cliquish. The most controversial subject seems to be which restaurant is the good one or the bad one !

Rickers, don't forget that you also have one of the finest gunsmiths anywhere in Conrad. I traveled over 1700 miles to have a rifle built there. Well worth the trip too. I didn't get to spend much time there but it did look like a very nice town from what I saw.

I've heard folks say that there is nothing to do here. I guess those are the kind of people who need big malls and amusement parks to have fun. I like Conrad because it is central to some of the best areas for outdoors recreation in the plains and the mountains. Here are a few pics of some of the areas near Conrad.

#1 - A lonely swan on the Missouri River next to the Carter ferry.



#2 - A promontory along The Rocky Mountain Front.



#3 - Prickly Pear Cactus in North Central Montana near Tiber Dam.



#4 - Another view of the Rockies.

Check out Plains and Thompson Falls, MT. We're 100 miles to the nearest stop light in any direction. It's nice, friendly and quiet. We like it anyway.

If memory serves me right, if you like green and mountains, check out western Montana. East of the mountains it tends to get brown (except for the tree leaves ) after June. My parents are originally from Eureka and we last lived in Havre a number of years ago. But I visit every few years.

Hey everybody! Its been a while since I've been on. This is the first time I have opened the computer in a coons age.

I hauled 7 steers to the cattle auction yesterday in Three Forks- they went for 93 cents a pound, a little low but the grass I feed is free so I came out ahead. Did I mention I love summer???

Now, to the question---

I think it was GLS that mentioned Choteau, Augusta, Dillon, and Conrad. These are all great fits. There are tons of great places for this type of lifestyle in Montana in fact 90 percent of the state has this type of feel. I live outside Helena and I have what most would call the old western type lifestyle.

Wherever you go in this state you will find this type of people. Well I have a gate to repair, a stock-trailer to wash out and a young horse that needs to be ridden, I don't know when I will get back on here but until then, keep your heels down and your chin up.

Welcome back. Been a while. Grab a drink and set down on the porch for a bit.

Take the trailer down to Hardin and wash it out. Young horse, your on you're own. Done broke my neck a few years back, doc says "Don't do that again."

Come on back. Horse can wait. haha
